Air compressors for inflation and powering tools. An air compressor takes power from an engine and uses this to squeeze air into a tank. Once the air has been compressed, the machine can emit the air at high power and with intense pressure, which can be used for a variety of tasks ranging from filling car tires with air to heavy-duty industrial and construction equipment applications. Here you can find used air compressors for sale from the most reliable manufacturers form a wide selection of second hand sellers with fixed price and auction dates. Compare prices and specs and make the right choice for your business from this vast selection of used air compressors.
For the hobbyist, or home user, the best air compressor will be small and portable air compressor, and may be referred to as a consumer-grade small air compressor. This is more than capable of inflating consumer goods and car tires, and portable air compressors can also be used to power and run a good variety of low-energy tools, such as staplers. However, the portable compressor will not typically have adequate power for multiple tools or for use with larger and more energy intensive tools. It is possible to find a good quality and cheap air compressor for sale to keep in the garage for occasional use, but more frequent use will require a better equipped model.
Portable Small Construction Compressors
There are portable small air compressors for sale that are ideal for use by contractors and those that regularly work on building sites and in other locations. These portable models do offer more power than the consumer models, and they are built to withstand the rough treatment that portable small compressors might receive while at locations like a building site. They have to be portable, because they will not only need to be moved from job to job, but may also need to be moved around the site, too.
Industrial Air Compressors
For the biggest and most powerful industrial air compressor models are those that offer the greatest flexibility and the widest range of use. These machines are found in auto body shops, as well as in industrial warehouses and factories. Industrial air compressors are commonly fixed, or too large to be regularly moved, and they are typically not used by contractors, because they are too cumbersome, or by home users because of the high cost of most industrial air compressors for sale.
Used Air Compressor for Sale
Finding an used air compressor for sale means choosing the one that fits power and tool specification requirements. Buying used air compressors enables the buyer to save money, while still being able to select from a range of high quality and the best used air compressors. COMPARE, BAUER, and ADICOMP make a selection of industrial air compressors while KAESER and METABO manufacture contractor or portable air compressors for sale that have proven reliable and robust enough to withstand the rigors of life on a construction yard. All these comressors manufacteres making the best machines out there for metal and construction fields, you can be sure to get a reliable and in good condition second hand air compressor. You can find all the information about specs avg. price and more right here on this second hand market platform.
All models and sizes, whether a small air compressor or an air compressor industrial, use an engine, a storage cylinder, and a gauge. The gauge measures the pressure of the air inside the cylinder, where it is stored after the engine, which may be petrol or electric, has forced it into the tank. All parts may wear out eventually, but it is possible to replace engines and gauges, as well as finding air compressor tanks for sale. The tank must remain air-tight and no air must be allowed to leak, otherwise this compromises the level of air pressure, and renders the machine useless. When looking for a used air compressor for sale, which can provide an affordable and convenient means of buying a potentially vital but expensive piece of workshop machinery, it is important to check the overall condition of the parts including the tank.
Although most compressors for sale operate from the mains, some gas or diesel models are portable enough that they can be kept in the trunk of the car. This offers a simple and effective way to inflate tires, even at the side of the road. For the mobile mechanic, this type of portable air compressor offers similar benefits, and there are a number of used air compressors for sale that have been designed with portability as well as power in mind. It is important that the buyer considers their power source, as well as other factors, because if they do not have the appropriate power source, then the air compressor will not work efficiently. Portable compressors should typically work on gasoline, because of the lack of availability of an electricity source, but gasoline powered compressors should only be used in ventilated areas in order to ensure the safety of the user.
Matching Compressor To Requirements
One factor that every buyer should consider before investing in used air compressors, is that the performance rating of the tools they will be using. The buyer should thus match the power of the air compressor to the power requirements of their tools, otherwise the tools will be inefficient or not work at all.
Hand Carts and Portability of a Air Compressor
When buying a used air compressor, it is worth noting that some will include a hand cart because while it may be possible to move them by hand, they can still be very heavy and the assistance of the hand cart can prove invaluable. For most commercial buyers, the size of the tank and the horsepower of the air compressor for sale will prove more important than the cost of buying, and most commercial operations will be able to provide the level and type of power that the compressor needs. Quality, durability, and power should all be considered important factors for air compressor sales.
