Harbor Freight 29 gallon cast iron air compressor (68127) - Break In - Part 2
Video of me breaking in my new Harbor Freight 29 gallon cast iron air
compressor (68127). I retorqued the head twice for the pre and post
break-in run. The min/max spec for the headbolts are 22/27 N-M. I torqued
the headbolts to 22NM for the pre-run and the headbolts to 26NM after the
break-in run. Head was cool to the touch. I then did a tank fill-up. It
took about 6:35 mins and stopped at 150psi (In the video, I said it stopped
at 145psi, but I watched it again today carefully and the compressor cuts
out exactly at 150psi, but minutes later, the needle settles right below
Proper break in of Harbor Freight central pneumatic 29 gallon 2hp 150psi air compressor model 68127
Well, santa was good to me this year. This is my new harbor freight
central pneumatic air compressor. This is what the manual concludes as
proper break in procedures, you are supposed to check the compressor head
bolts before initial run and after the 10 minute no load pump break in and
again every 500 hours. They are supposed to be torqued at 27nm (just about
20ft lb.). I always change the oil in chinese equipment even before the
first start up because I don't like their quality of oil and there is
usually some metal remnants in the oil if they test run at the factory and
just leftover from casting parts. I then put in good quality oil, run it
once or twice and change it again to make sure I get all the metal
particles out of the case. I shot this over a few days because my health
condition really really really limits me for doing anything longer than 15
(or less) minutes at a time. Hopefully that will change very soon. As you
can see I got this at christmas and I just got done shooting and uploading
video. This looks to be a decent compressor, but won't really be able to
test it out until after my surgery and recovery, which won't be till about
march at the earliest. I don't work for harbor freight nor central
pneumatic, just following the manual and my own take on some things. I've
had great success with some chinese manufactured tools and equipment, and
I've had some great disasters as well. It's best to look at the item you
are considering in the store, and do lots of online extensive research
before a major purchase. If you plan on using the item heavily or every
day, I would buy a used name brand tool thats easy to get parts for or fab
parts for before I bought a chinese one. This will see use about once a
week or even longer intervals, so it should be ok. Also, I would not buy
ANY chinese oil less compressor for two reasons, they wake the dead and
they typically fail apart within the first few uses if not shorter. This
is a Central Pneumatic ( Distributed by Harbor Freight ) 2hp 150psi 29
gallon 115v single phase two piston pump single stage vertial air
compressor part number 68127 I will also upload a second video very shorty
showing tank fill time from 0 psi to full 150 psi I wish this model had
pneumatic tires, would make moving it around much easier, I may have to
adapt it to use a set in the future.

Harbor Freight (Central Pneumatic) 26 gallon oilless air compressor review (68067)
A review of the Central Pneumatic 26 gallon oilless air compressor. While
the price may seem too good to be true, my initial impression is good. The
compressor is quick to build pressure, fairly quiet for its size, and
operates just as you would expect. While this review doesn't contain
footage of it's ability to run air tools, I feel that the specifications
are most important for that regard. What's most important to know is if
this can actually compress air, which it can and in great quantity.
If there are any updates that I need to make regarding this compressor, I
will make a new video. Subscribe if you'd like to find out if/when that
happens. And check out my channel for other reviews!

New Central Pneumatic 29 gallon air compressor vs. old Husky 20 gallon
Just a short video of the sound difference between an old Husky oil-less 20
gallon air compressor vs. a new Central Pneumatic harbor freight oil filled
29 gallon air compressor. The new harbor freight air compressor is
definitely better in build quality, it's much more quiet (even more quiet
in person), very low tone, and is a very heavy piece of equipment. So far
HARBOR FREIGHT CENTRAL PNEUMATIC 29gal Air Compressor
Brand new,picked this up on sale at Harbor Freight. When unpacking there
will be a small wood frame at bottom which the compressor is attached. Be
careful when you remove this because once you do the drain valve at bottom
will ride the weight of the compressor until you get the tires and bumpers
on. Did my 10 minute break in period according to manual, then fired it up.
Takes about 8 to 9 minutes to fill, did not use stop watch just
estimating.. Will kick off around the 140 to 150 psi mark. Once filled no
leaks were detected and was very surprised on how quiet it is. HF employee
stated I would need to purchase oil for the unit, but there was oil already
in the pump at the level mark. Keeps up with my air tools, so far so good
and very pleased with the unit in performance, build quality, and the
best value I could find. Will report back as time goes on. Part #68127
