When looking to buy a new air compressor, don’t be put off by the thought of buying a used air compressor. Just because the air compressor has been previously used does not mean that it is not as efficient as a brand new model. However, buying a used air compressor is usually cheaper than buying a new one, so it’s definitely worth taking it into consideration. As a general rule, used air compressors have usually been refurbished and reconditioned so that they are in perfect working order.
As with any air compressor, used compressors are available in a range of different sizes and capabilities. Before you begin your search, you must be clear on the maximum CFM that is needed to run your air tools. Different tools require different CFM so it is important that the compressor is able to comply with all of your tools.
Carry out regular maintenance on your used air compressor to make sure that it is running as efficiently as possible. You don’t want to end up losing the money that you saved purchasing the compressor through downtime and expensive repair costs. Still not convinced?
