I do use my Quincy Compressor in an unheated shop, in below freezing weather. The only change that is required is to run it with a thinner 10w compressor oil.

What's needed for complete installation?

For air compressor Quincy 251CS80VCB, is there a regulator and air-water separator with this unit? Is there any electrical components I need to provide other than the 230 volt supply cord?

Staff Answer
There is a pressure switch on the unit that will turn the unit on at 135 psi and turn off the unit at 175 psi. The unit does not come with a air- water separator, and there is not any electrical components needed for a 230 volt supply cord.

The one I bought last year did not come with any water seperators or regulators. Everything electrical was already attached to the unit, all I had to do was hook up my supply voltage.
