    Hello-

    After a great deal of research, along with many answers to my questions provided by you, my Coltri/Nuvair MCH-6 compressor is here.  This is the 220 version (8014) and is actually less expensive to buy from Nuvair than the similar Daystate model, that was just released.  Additionally, the Coltri/Nuvair is a true dive compressor, set up for breathable air.  Should we ever want to sell, potential buyers include the entire dive community, in addition to air rifle/air pistol shooters.

    During the purchase I spoke to the good people at Nuvair (Craig, mostly) repeatedly.  They answered all of my questions, and gave me many different options.  In the end, my compressor was configured exactly to my specification.  I found it very important that Nuvair test runs all of the compressors they sell, before they are shipped.  Shipping was fast, and acceptance of the delivery, easy.

    I selected this model, over the Coltri Compact/Daystate type 2 based on Craig's recommendation.  Basically, the Compact/Type 2 is designed to travel in the back of a vehicle on a regular basis.  This model is designed to be stationary, costs less, and is easier to service as there is no cage to remove each time service is needed.

    Rather than upset my spouse, by sharing her clothes dryer outlet, I am having a dedicated 220 line installed next week.  A full review will follow.

    Kind regards,

    Hello-

    No problem, at all- $2700, plus $149, shipped to my door and delivered to my garage.  90 lbs. It has a 1 year warranty.

    Kind regards,

    Here is the closest one from Daystate, minus the breathable air filtration-

    Hello-

    Yes,  Coltri/Nuvair does make a 110 version.  I chose the 220 version, for my personal application.

    The problem with 220V compressors  configured to run on 110V is that they require 30 amp circuits.  Check the specs out on the Coltri MCH-6. Their website specs show the 110V version draws 29 amps. Very few household 110V circuits are wired for 30 amps.  Halving  the voltage on a 220V motor draws double the amps.  If you connect one to a common 110V 20 amp  circuit it trips the breaker or overheats the wiring which is extremely hazardous.

    good heads UP ..humdinger…would hate to have an added cost..to install 220v..or a 30 amp circuit…

    daystates 110 is still at the top for me with all the research for home compressor.

    I have never heard of this company, and know nothing about their product.

    I actually almost pulled the trigger on one.  I could not get it configured the way I wanted.  Also, it is a very new product, from Coltri/Daystate, and does not have a reliability history.

    Thank you, I want that same compressor for the price you paid.  Can you please let me know where you purchased the compressor from?  Also can you tell us what kind of fitting was on the end of the fill hose?

    Hello-

    I purchased from Nuvair, in California.  I only use 3000 PSI, so I requested the 232 relief valve and the DIN 232 fill whip.  My understanding, though, is that the DIN 300 fill whip in the US ships without the nipple and can be used in DIN 200 applications.

    The electrician will be here tomorrow!

    Kind regards,

    Hello-

    The electrician did his job, admirably.  He understood what was going on, and went out of his way to make sure that everything worked well, when I fired the compressor up.  He inspected the inside of the electics box, and made sure everything was connected properly.  Really, he made my life easy.

    The compressor, itself, was test run, per the instructions, and I have filled two dive tanks with it already.   Interestingly, I found that the dive shop filled both tanks to 188 BAR, not 200 BAR, on my very last paid fills.  No more wasted money.  Waiting for my next fill to do a more complete review.
