Questions & Answers for FREE SHIPPING - NorthStar Gas Air Compressor - Honda GX160 OHV Engine, 20-Gallon Tank

Question

What are the dimensions?

I need to know the dimensions without the wheels and handle installed. I want to mount this unit in the back of a pickup truck where an old worn out compressor once was. The one being replaced was a 20 gal gas as well. The area allowed is limited. Thank you, Todd
The unit no. I am refering to is Northstar Gas Compressor - Honda GX160 OHV Engine, 20-Gallon Tank.

Without the handles the dimensions are 34 inches long, 22 inches wide, and 32.5 inches tall. The front supports are welded to the air tank, so the wheels only make the tank level when installed.

I am not near my compressor right now, so I cannot make actual measures for you. Though I will say - that without doubt, I could mount this compressor in the bed of nearly any small import truck now produced. This would be with the addition of a welded angle bracket to make up for the height of the missing wheels. I might also add an extra width brace for the "rest" at the other side.

My "Mark 1 Eyeball" measuring device and memory says you will shorten the overall width by at least one foot without the handle.

The pump on this air compressor requires 30W non-detergent pump oil. Click the link below to view the pump oil for this compressor. This oil is advertised as pressure washer pump oil, but it's also compatible for use with the compressor pump.

This compressor cannot be ordered with no oil gone through. All of our gas-powered NorthStar Compressors are tested and run before being shipped out to ensure they will not be defective. The engines will have the gas and oil drained, but the pump oil will be left in.

The Honda motor is shipped with no oil in it. I did notice the engine showed signs of being tested at the factory - IE- Smell of gas, though no gas, oil film in engine internals, though no oil.

The compressor arrived filled with oil to the proper mark on the sightglass. Drive belt was properly tensioned on mine.

The Honda GX160 used on this NorthStar compressor is no longer rated in horsepower. It would be approximately equivalent to a traditional 5.5hp motor.

You just need oil for the motor, and some wrenches to put on the wheels and handle. The pump comes with oil.

This NorthStar Gas Air Compressor does not need a start up kit. Compressor will have oil in the pump, and an air filter. Be sure to check before start up. The engine will not have oil. It requires 10w 30 detergent oil.

Your impact wrench requires a certain CFM and PSI to operate properly, so the impact wrench requirements will determine if this NorthStar air compressor will do the job. This compressor puts out 13.2 CFM @ 90 PSI & 12.7 CFM @ 130 PSI.

Yes it will, I bought this compressor for the same reason. I upgraded the fittings to run a 3/4" air hose and the compressor keeps up with no problem. I'm sure it should do the job just fine with a 1/2" or 3/8 air hose too, I just updraded to have the extra air flow. Very pleased with this compressor!!!
