Use non detergent air compressor oil. It can be found at Lowes, Homedepot, and even Walmart. It is sold in small containers for about $2-3 dollars. A synthetic blend air compressor oil is needed when the unit is used in severe conditions. Synthetic air compressor oil sold at Lowes $6.95 and other stores will take more heat. Second choice is 30w non-detergent motor oil. Engine oils tend to produce carbon on the reed valves in the head if used extensively. I have been using the Lowes Kobalt brand of air compressor oil for some years in my Makita and Rol Air compressors with good results. The part number for Makita brand of oil is 18112-A quart size. It is only available by special order where I live. Good Luck!

The proper oil is dependent upon the ambient temp,
-15 to 0C - 10W or ISO32
1 to 26C - 20W or ISO68
27 C up - 30W or ISO100
As noted in the reply above, synthetic blends perform better under heavy use.

5 gallon compressor tries to start then stops


it sounds like the unloader is not working so it's trying to start with to much head pressure. One cause is a bad check valve another is a bad pressure switch. Those are the more common problems.

Mac 5200--what type of oil and how much oil does it take?


Use air compressor oil only, motor oils like 10W-30 will leave carbon deposits on components and reduce their performance and compressor life. No manual lists an exact amount of oil to put in, they just say fill until the oil is half way up the sight glass. It's usually +/- one cup depending on the model, some take as much as one pint. Go by the sight glass for the best performance and to protect your compressor.

Hi,I got a Ingersoll Rand type 30 model 234 compressor.It looks good but it has no motor.I'm thinking like 120v,3horses?,but not sure about rpm.any help would be nice.thanks


According to the information you provided your looking at a 10 HP motor at three phase. Do you have three phase at your location? If not I would look into getting a single phase compressor. If you do want to get it going I would notify your local IR dealer so they can get you the right Model number, RPM, Pulley and Motor Frame Size to match your unit.

Please read below....Jim...if this helped you please send me a positive response...Thanks!

Dont know what kind of oil to put in my makita mac2400r compresso


If your compressor is used all day purchase synthetic blend compressor oil sold at lowes and other stores. It will increase the life of your machine. Sells for about $7. for 16oz. For normal use use standard air compressor oil sold at lowes, home depot and even at wal mart. Wal mart's Super Tech Air Compressor oil sells for less than $3. and works well. Do not use motor oil with detergent as this type of oil causes carbon deposits to build-up in the head and discharge hose which will eventually clog the check valve and lower efficiency. If you remove the plastic sight glass, use caution, because this part easily cracks. Purchase a spare sight glass and keep in your tool box. Good luck
