anything wrong with Paasche d500 compressor?
Posted by M1abramsRules on Wednesday, July 30, 2003 6:05 PM
every time I look at compressors on ebay there is always a few paasche d500 compressors. all of them are "barely ever used, in mint cond. etc. etc." every one of them is like that. So, did them person use them and find out it wasn't what they wanted or what?

I used to have one myself a long time ago. They get hot easy, only put out about 25 psi, and pulsate the air badly because they are a diaphram compressor. They will work pretty good if you put a small air tank on them to even out the airflow, but you need to shut them off ASAP because as I said they get hot, and heat is what kills compressors.

I don't remember since it's been about 11 years since I had one. Wink [;)]

These are the cheapest of compressors made and I would recommend buying something that will last and not fail you in the middle of a project.

Buy yourself a Campbell Hausfeld or something among that category. It will never fail you. So what if is loud. The sound of power tools is awesome!

If you buy cheap, it will usually turn to ______ you fill in the blank for extra credit Smile [:)]

That is good advice IF he can stand the sound. If you need a quiet compressor then get something like the Intruder TC2000, or Silentaire Scorpion from Dixie Art.

The 180 is the Cyclone model and for the price you can get a better unit in my opinion. The Badger Cyclone is $179 through Dixie Art and for the same price you can buy this compressor which is a much better deal:
