    Got a knock-off Yong Heng compressor for my B’day, had to get it repaired pretty soon after I got it, but didn’t want to tell the givers it had broken!. Before I had it repaired, I realized how much easier it made my PCP shooting life. While the gift pump was in the shop, I found a REAL YONG HENG compressor on closeout from WalMart, originally (so they say) $999.00, for $250 on closeout! This thing is wonderful, smooth, powerful and doesn’t heat up nearly as fast as the knock-off. Won’t go over 50C, with water cooling. Now I have 2 pumps, gonna wear out the knock-off, with care till she dies.

    Can you explain what identifiers guarantee a compressor is a legitimate YH compressor?

    The knock-off has no Yong Heng labels, has a paper air inlet filter, no pressure relief valve. The Yong Heng has large identifying lettering on the side of the pump  and a manufacturer nameplate that says Yong Heng Pneumatics LTD. serial number etc. it also has a metal brass/copper inlet filter and and pull ring pressure relief valve. The plate also list specifications for the pump. By the way, love your YouTube channel!

Ok Dark thanks for the information on identifiers for a true YH compressor. I purchased one from the YH factory in China or at least that is what the listed said, see below.
    Thank you for the kind words regarding my YT channel

    Haj……….oh so very tempted to buy a Yong Heng but oh so holding back until the NOMAD portable compressor makes it appearance. Should be a very interesting match up.
    Do you plan on doing a setup and feedback video of some sorts. Very interesting to see your take on it. Been waiting for the Master to speak 🙂

    Hajimoto,

    My knock-off yong heng had broken check valve spring after about 3 hours usage and I'm having a hard time locating replacement. Knock-off came with spare check valve spring, real Yong Heng did not. I want to get ahead of this before she (knock-off) fails again. Bought look-a-like springs from Lowes and tried them out, so far so good, but I think heat from 1st to 2nd stage is killing check valve springs. Asked Centercut about heat sinks on pipe leading from 1st to second stage of compressor. Have also ordered a higher flow water pump.

    My knock off had a bad relay that a friend was able to fix. Then the first stage check valve spring broke. After fixing these issues the pump seems to work fine. Just using to top off my Marauder.

    I replaced my broken check valve spring with one purchased from Lowes, a 4 pack for $2.98. seems to be working fine.

    Hi Haji, I also bought mine from the same seller, they where very quick to ship it and I have it know for over a year now, hasn't give me any problems, I mainly use to top off my rifles when I go to the range, just keep it below 60ºC and runs like a kitten !!!!, very good compressor, as a side note, I've found that the PSI gage is around 20 BARs off,so be careful!.

    Let us know how everything goes with yours.
