    After much research and careful consideration, I decided to purchase the Yong Heng Compressor.
    I contacted the owners of the compant and they gaurenteed that any and all parts are in stock and if I EVER needed assistance, parts, maintenance help I would get full support!
    The compressor has several videos on youtube with all very positive reviews by happy cusomers!

    But here’s the real deal guys this thing cost 325$ SHIPPED!!  I am so exited! I will keep everyody posted as I experience this thing (Good or bad)!

    Does anyone have one of these? Did I make a mistake? What do you guys think?

    where did you buy it from?  Never heard of them before.  Who is the distributor?

    ​Besides at $325, if it breaks, you really can’t complain.  and it won’t break the bank.  At $1200 or more, I’d cry if I couldn’t get parts.

    Hope it works for you, but where did you get it?

    Is that the one I saw on YouTube where you had to keep a chilled 5 gallon bucket of water with 2 hoses running into it from the compressor?

    Yes I believe so, it is water cooled.

    I am thinking of getting one for filling a small tank ( something that would only give a couple of fills for a 300cc tube ). I was hoping if I didn’t get carried away with the tank size the compressor would last much longer due to less heat build up.

    I pretty much only hunt and a hand pump does well for me but only having a hand pump makes me avoid doing any maintenance/repairs on my own that involves draining the air tube completely.

    Any recommendations for the smallest tank that would fill my needs?

    I bought this one and it works great

    I have only used it 4 times so far. The big test will be when I get my SCBA 45min bottle, back from being tested.
    I’m a making a small frame to hold it with a small water tank and this radiator https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CFDS3JA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Hey Guys, Compressor came today! Im sad to say but I’m allready running into problems,

    I filled it up with oil hooked up the waterlines hooked it to 220 and fired it up.

    I tried to fill my cricket .22 up with it, and it kept beeping and shuitting off, and finally it stopped completlely. All it does is beep when I turn it on!  I think I’m in a world of hurt now… Any ideas from you guys?

    This is a 220 volt model.
    I did have it hooked to an extention cord, but idk if that made any difference.
    I did put in the right kind of oil.
    I did hook up the cooling system properly.

    Any suggestions would be greatly apprecieted….

    I did contact the company we will see what they are able to tell me.   Man I wish I would have bought locally!! 🙁

    I think it showed an LED Readout.  Does it give an error code or anything?

    Try bleeding the pressure before starting it. There is a low and high pressure bleed screw.

    It has no LED read-out so no codes to read,

    I should also mention, i hooked it up to my .22 cricket to fill it up and it blew a burst-disk, the company told me that this thing would sut off by itself, but here’s the weird thing, my gun was only at 3500 psi, but the compressor gauge was around 5500 when the burst-disk blew.

    I think that has to do with the slo-fill system of the cricket that only lets in air slowly.

    But now it will not even try to start up, I think something is fried…

    I heard it’s hit or miss with these I know two people who bought them from the same company not as you but each other customer service was exactly the same as your explaining but they had no problems just questions then another person that I know bought one and had problems my opinion you shouldn’t be having problems right out of the box with this thing .it’s possible they had it wired up for 110 instead of 220 PS have you checked the fuses fuses. And if they don’t have a simple fix for you I would demand to send it back for a new one.

    Ok Guys, I’ve got great news and I’ve got Excellent News!

    The great news is, I took the compressor to my local Electric repair shop today, and lo and behold a cheap 5 dollar contactor swich had gotten hot and had malfunctioned, 45 bucks later, (with labor) I had the compressor home and working overtime!!

    The Excellent news, This thing fills Insanely fast for its size, It’s only slightly bigger than my old shoebox and it fills at least 10 maybe 15 times faster!! WoW!  I am impressed!! Really Impressed!

    I hooked up a 60 minute scba tank to it about 35 minutes ago and it just now crossed 2000 psi so I would guess it will take about 1.2 hours to fill a 60 minute tank!

    It took me 24 hours for a 45 minute tank with my shoebox!!  
    For a 300$ compressor I am really really impressed!
    I will keep everyone posted on maintenace and break-downs but right now I am very happy!!

    By The way the company from china has been really helpful in trying to locate the problem and troublshooting our way to a solution!! This is a rare and pleasant surprise indeed!!

    Oh, my friend the electricain is 99% certain that my extention cord was to blame. I now wired an outlet 5″ from the breaker panel ha ha I’m taking no more chances…. 🙂

    I’m with your electrician buddy on the extension cord being the issue. I didn’t  really feel the gauge of the installed cord is heavy enough to adequately carry the load of the draw and swapped it out when I switched my plug.

    What size wire did you use for the plug-in, something like a 12/3 ?

    I was going to go with the Yong Heng 220 volt with auto shutoff and make a special pigtail for my dryer outlet in the United States but opted instead for the 110 volt so it will be more easily portable.  Almost went the Tuxing route but the Yong Heng only has good reviews.  Can’t afford a Carette so this will be my baby.
