In reply to Air Compressors Oil versus oil-less by Jim Dudzik on September 21st, 1999 08:52 PM [Go to top of thread]

Big difference the oil is a closed unit using filters for any intake passages, where the oil-less also has the filter for the intake but also has the bottom of the piston and sleave exposed to the elements on the compression side and has a fan that blows directly into the bottom of the sleave and piston to keep it cool. (while blowing sand and anything else in it too) the motor is still a closed unit. I'm a roofer and have gone through many oil-less thinking they would need less up-keep. I now have a oil and will never go back.
Oil-less was one of the worst ideas to come out.
go with oil they last forever if you treat them right.
