Hi, I'm looking for a diesel/gas air compressor. Anyone have one for sale? If not, any ideas where I can get one? Thanks!:canadaflag:

I bought mine from a rental outlet. Be prepared to have some work done; they don't maintain them that well. If you can find a 125cfm tow-behind with variable psi adjustment, so much the better. Unless you're doing big sites, a diesel 190 is not worth it.

I usually rent a 185 CFM and I find I can blow out 6 zones at a time. Rental outlets around here want outrageous prices for used equipment. Looking to go buy one in the USA:)

I always thought it would be cool to have a skid-mounted compressor that slid into the back of one of our flatbeds; saves the fun of backing up a tow-behind. :dizzy:

I'd have a talk with your accountant; if your cash flow is sufficient, it may be better to buy a fresh one if you plan to stay in business.http://grimmerschmidt.com

thanks Dana, he's a little far for me to go get it. I'm in Ontario, he's in Colorado.....unless he was willing to budge on his price....don't think he's desperate enough, it's from an equipment rental place. Thanks again for looking for me! Keep up the good work!:canadaflag:

Expect it to be trashed, and unless it has a psi adjustment, consider it worthless for irrigation.
