If you are looking for the longest lasting and highest quality 5hp reciprocating compressor on the market for the price, this is the compressor!
The RCP-581VS compressor utilizes a slow turning cast iron pump. This compressor pump is normally paired with a 7.5hp motor but has been slowed down to run with a Baldor 5HP motor. This results in very quiet piston air compressor. This slow turning reciprocating pump generates less heat than other 5hp compressors, resulting in increased reliability/lifespan and less water in your compressor lines.
The RCP-C581VS compressor utilizes an all cast iron piston compressor pump. This pump is built to last and features a finned discharge tube for cooler operation, tapered roller bearings, and automotive style wrist pins for increased lifespan. Inside of the pump, disc and spring valves are utilized rather than reed or finger valves. Disc valves are more reliable and can be changed without pulling the entire pump apart. This C1 pump from Chicago Pneumatic is paired with an industrial grade and high-quality Baldor motor.
The RCP-C581VS is a 5hp single phase air compressor on an 80 gallon receiver. The pump is pre-filled with oil and the compressor is "plug and play" – simply connect power to the compressor and it’s ready to run. This Chicago Pneumatic compressor is part of their "Iron Series" product line featuring an all cast iron pump with a 2 Year CP Secure Warranty with no additional purchase required.
