    Do not buy an Diesel Eagle Air compressor. They are a piece of junk. We have had trouble with ours since we recieved it in 1996.

    Depends on your scba psi. Their is a BIG price jump from 5000 psi to 6000 psi compressors. Max Air, american airworks have basically the same fast 90 compressor for $7800 to 8200. That will take you to the 4500 bottle pressure just fine. Add a 3-5 bottle cascade system, regulators,etc and a 2 bottle class 2 fill station (nfpa requirement) and you can be up and running for under 14K. Bauer and poseiden are great too. We found max-air to be the best bang for the buck.
    Next -single phase od 3 phase power and 50 or 60 cycle. The 3 phase is less if you have the wiring. Look for V.F.D discounts- max-air give you 10% except on the fill stations.
    Shop around lots of used stuff on the air compressor web sites.
    Shipping can be expensive as the stuff weighs alot.

    Look at Poseidon Air Systems in Colchester, Vermont: 802-862-0051. We've been very happy with ours.

    Breathing Air Compressors, SCBA

    Thanks to FEMA, we are going to be able to purchase a compressor for our SCBA cascade system. Does anyone have any comments or recommendations about a particular brand or model compressor. We are a small rural department in New Hampshire. We really do not need a large, city sized unit but we would like one that would be very dependable and last us many years.
