Default Larger Industrial type air compressor

I have an air compressor I need to sell since it is 3 phase and I need a single phase for my garage. It is either a 60 or 80 gallon tank I am thinking 80 to be honest. It is a Speedaire by Dayton Direct Drive Model number 5Z044.

It is a 2 stage
3 phase
5 HP 60 HZ
2 cylinder
Oiler

I did know it worked before being disconnected and was the shops main compressor before my work bought it. They just never hooked it back up cause they had one already there and this was part of the company buy and equipment that came with it. I have no way to hook it up but was told by my production manager it was in working order when reomoved. It has been indoors for the last 3 years or so and has never been outside. Comes cutoff switch and 3 phase sub panel as well. Everything in the pictures are included (excluding the boxes around it! LOL!)





I will get more info when I get pics of the tags and that will have HP ratings ect.. on them. It was manufactured in 1989

I am looking for $750 O.B.O and would be great for a small shop.

Located in Monroe, MI

You can buy a phase converter and run it in you'rte own garage for about 150 bucks.

Actually I would have to get at least a 10HP rotary phase converter for it to work properly (staitc converts although cheaper are not good for air compressors) and not burn the motor out and they are $800 for a good so I would rather see this go to someone who has 3 phase or a good rotary converter and spend the $ on a bit smaller one since I would not be needing something so heavy duty anyway (hind sight is 20/20). I don't want to throw more $ at it if I can avoid it.

Just buy a 5hp single phase motor and put it on it. It will work just fine. Or I will trade you a vertical 80 gallon for your horizontal one. You would have to meet me in Ohio some where. Mine is a 3 lung 5HP Iron Man have had it for 10 years.

Well the problem with changing the motor is it is direct drive and I am not sure if they have direct replacements for a direct drive motor on this type of pump. They might but I really don't know.
