Is there a brand name? When will you have info on this compressor , 3 X faster than what compressor? Omega?
In fifteen day I will have my finger on the buy button on a Sheldon compressor, I am checking now to see if he takes PayPal,

Ok i just did the math… These can pump up to 6k psi if needed and they are rated at 25 l/min which is 52.97 CFH
The Omegas are rated at 23, and 22 CFH. The shoebox f8 is 8 CFHJanuary 21, 2015 at 4:23 am #217639AnonymousInactive
Sounds good, are they made here in the USA? Or more china stuff,,, I am just looking at warranty and parts incase something goes wrong or wares out ,
I would just like to know if the thing has a little backing from the company that sells it.
But your math looks great,,,
I fill my great white once a month, Its not like I will over load the work on the compressor, But like I said before I think I would increase my shooting and bring out my air hog 25 Marauder if I had my own compressor , Just saying….

I see all these new compressors coming around, some cheap and some not so cheap. I see the post where the guys buy them .
Then I hear nothing, Did they not work? Its like I paid $$$$$$$ for the compressor unboxed it and then nothing,,,,,
Has anyone bought a Jim Sheldon compressor should be pretty top of the line in the 1,500 range 1,700 with shipping ,
I just find it strange, everyone seems to go silent after buying a compressor ????
Maybe got there computer repo after buying a compressor???? LOL.

For the Omega Super Chargers we use them so little as fast as they are as individual users they just don’t get much wear. Topping a tank off every other week and shooting a ton like i do is like twenty hours a year so five years is maybe 100 hours which is still just breaking it in.
Thats why the commercial ones are over the top unless you sell a lot of air or share one and split the cost. I bet my local dive shop runs his Bauer over a 100 hrs a month or so.February 4, 2015 at 12:58 am #218705AnonymousInactive
Just ordered my Jim Shelden Be2-4v1 compressor,
I will give everyone my two cents when it gets in,,
I will be happy to have my own air, Like I said before it will save two hours and 35 dollars a month, So it will pay for itself in a few years…
Christmas in February, I can not wait,,,
Man I am deep in the sport now, :smilen:

Cool. Is it a Kiddie?February 4, 2015 at 1:47 am #218712AnonymousInactive
I do not know if its a kidde?
Talking with him I just need one that will last a long time with little maintenance,
I read Everything, I studied compressors until my brain hurt,
I flipped my coin and I think it came up good,,,,,
” The compressor is 24 X 18 X 16 and weighs about 90 pounds
This is not something you can put inside the house because the water/oil mixture must be drained from the moisture trap every 30 minutes and it is messy and smelly. While you can talk over the compressor running noise it would certainly be a big distraction inside a house. Also I don’t know of any house outlet that can handle 23 amps on 115 volts. This will require a dedicated circuit for 115 volts like a large window air conditioner , clothes dryer, or cooking range. This is a piece of commercial equipment, Not a house toy. It should go in a garage and you will still need a new electrical line unless you have a heavy duty electrical line in the garage.
The compressor comes with everything needed to fill the gun or the white tank.
The shipping cost will be no more than $200.00″
Total cost to my door with nothing else to buy to fill my Great white or air gun is 1,700

Ok Mike you can tell us, did you tell the wife or is this a secret?? :suprisedn:February 4, 2015 at 9:11 pm #218763havocParticipant
Buddy and I split on a Omega 4500 Super Charger compressor and it has been working flawlessly for over 15+ hours!February 4, 2015 at 10:14 pm #218770
I kind of did the same and fill another guys tank for trading his machining work on my projects but bought it myself. It has a lot of extra capacity for both of us using it and I shoot a lot. From what I hear there are now over several hundred Omega compressors out there (between AOA and PAG) and some with over 100 hours (dealers using them). They seem to be doing very well. It will take me 4-5 years to get 100 hours at my rate of use.quote Havoc:Buddy and I split on a Omega 4500 Super Charger compressor and it has been working flawlessly for over 15+ hours!February 5, 2015 at 12:04 am #218781AnonymousInactive
Its going to be about three weeks before I can do my review on my compressor,
Got two other guys in front of me waiting , So its going to be awhile.
So I got to do one of those hurry up and wait things,,,,
But from what I read and the people I talked to its going to be well worth the wait,,,,
MikeFebruary 5, 2015 at 12:21 am #218783
This entire hobby is like that. Wait and wait some more. From what I heard Jim sometimes customizes the compressors to fit ones budget as possible.February 5, 2015 at 7:11 pm #218802AnonymousInactive
I am sure glad the Omega compressors are working out. Its a lot of money on any of the compressors…
I read a report from WWAG (I think it was ) on the Omega that got me second guessing the china stuff.
I guess in the long run we will see, But for anyone that has spent that kind of money on your sport , I hope for the best.
Be like buying a high dollar PCP that will not hit the side of a barn. :smilen: :smilen:
