delux54panel.No it is a 5 HP.2 stage 2 cyl.compressor.on an 80 gal.tank.I have heard too many horror stories about the oiless compressors.It is replacing an old Champion,circa 1956,with approx.the same specs.But the Champion is getting old like me and parts are no longer available to rebuild it.It is really more compressor than I need but what the hey.In this case I think bigger is better.

Made a huge mistake buying an oilless. Rebuilt once already. I will have to deal with it until I can buy a new one. I plan on one like dale937 just bought.

Dale, I don't think anyone has ever said, "darn, I wish I'd bought a smaller compressor."

I know I've never said, "darn, I wish I had bought the cheaper tool.", but there's been several times I've said "darn, why didn't I spend a few dollars more and get the good one?".
