Estwing has introduced a 10-gallon, 5.5 horsepower twin stack compressor through a licensing agreement with Prime Global Products (PGP), headquartered in the Atlanta area.

The new compressor is part of a full line of Estwing pneumatic products that will be on display at the National Hardware Show. The show opens today in Las Vegas.

“A great air compressor is essential to a productive job site,” said Jason Richards, president of U.S. operations at PGP. “We believe the dependable Honda engine and cast iron pump, along with improvements we made on idle control and the front tire, will soon make the Estwing 10-gallon compressor a favorite among contractors. If you’re in the market for a compressor that is built to last, starts every time, delivers consistent air, and has fast recovery, this is the compressor for you.”

Estwing says framers, roofers, siding, decking installers and farmers will see that the new 10-gallon, 5.5 horsepower twin stack compressor has the power and performance characteristics to consistently meet job site and shop demands.

At 190 pounds, the stout twin stack gas compressor is powered by Honda’s GX 160 four-stroke engine, which delivers reliable service and long-lasting performance. Its cast-iron V-twin style pump and Big Bore cylinder operates at cooler temperatures, with enough power and reserve to run air tools simultaneously with rapid recovery. The 5.5 horsepower compressor has a maximum psi rating of 150. Air delivery at 40 psi is 14 SCFM and 12.5 SCFM at 90 psi.

The compressor’s 10-gallon, powder-coated steel twin stack tanks provide constant air supply for multiple pneumatic tools. The compressor’s pressurized, oil-lubricated pump runs at cooler temperatures and provides constant lubrication to reduce wear and tear on key parts. A built-in, visual, oil level indicator allows the operator to monitor oil levels. The compressor also employs automotive industrial quality air filters to increase air intake for maximum operating efficiency.

An industrial grade recoil starter features an ergonomic design for faster and easier startups. Plus, the compressor’s automatic idle control reduces fuel consumption.

An integrated control panel with oversized gauges provides clear view sight lines to monitor pressure. A pressure regulator dial and two universal 1/4-inch brass quick-connector couplers are also integrated into the front steel panel.

The twin stack compressor has a ball drain valve at its base and non-slip rubber feet to dampen vibration. Also included is a 10-inch, non-flat tire for easy mobility, especially around job sites.
