Reply To: Has Anyone Received Their MRod Compressor
There are variables brother.
the distance from the breaker and wire size used on that circuit is just one of them.
A 30 amp line, would be a better choice.
We tested these with an amp meter and found starting amps are 15-16, but can develop 20-21 in extended runs once the pressure gets to 4500 psi.
This is on a non dedicated circuit, in the shop using 12awg wiring, so bear that in mind.
The longer and/or lighter run of wire you have, the more amps they will pull.
This is the reason light duty extension cords are not advised when using the compressor.
Hope this helps.
