Question

can this unit be rewired to run on 230 volts?

I purchased this unit from you last year and would like to now run it on 230 volts rather than 115. Can this unit be rewired to operate on 230 volts?

Rewiring this Ingersoll Rand Garage Mate Air Compressor would void you warranty and is not recommended.

answer 2
No it can not. The motor was not designed to run both. Units that are designed to run both are actualy 230 volts motors that are not heavy so 115 will turn it. If you run it off a 230 you will burn it out because the wiring inside the motor is not designed to handle than much power.

You can hook up an expansion tank to this compressor. The auxiliary tank would have to be piped in with a hose or hard piping. Removal of the service connection may be required.

Staff Answer
This air compressor will give you 5.2 CFM at 90 PSI or 4.6 CFM at 135 PSI. You would need to check the CFM and PSI requirement of the orbital sander you purchased to see if this compressor would cover the tools requirements.
