CompressorsMobile air compressors for at home and on the move
Compressors are ideal for numerous jobs in the home, garden, garage and at the building site. The Einhell hybrid Power X-Change compressor can be used both by the mains and also with a battery from the PXC 'One battery fits all' range. Ideal for pumping up tyres and inflating air beds.
What to look out for when purchasing a compressor
On the market you will find a large selection of air compressors. However, not all air compressors are suitable for every application. Therefore, you should pay attention to some important points when buying an air compressor.
Compressor output power
Before you buy an air compressor, you should consider what projects you want to use it for and how much pressure you need. Different sizes are available with a capacity of 6 to 90 litres, but there are also case compressors without compressed air tanks. The output power is the actual amount of air that the compressor provides for your work.
Battery or mains connection
Depending on the application, a model with a battery or a model with a mains connection may be better suited for you. If you want to benefit from maximum performance and power in your garage, garden or workshop, then the air compressor with mains connection is the right choice. Connected to the power supply, the device can be used at any time, spontaneously and, most importantly, without interruptions. However, if you also want to work with the device on the go, then the cordless compressor or the hybrid compressor are better suited. With the cordless compressor and the hybrid compressor, you benefit from a limitless range of motion, and thanks to the high-quality Power X-Change batteries you still have enough power for many projects.
Short works or longer projects
Want to use the compressor for longer projects? Then you should include a reserve volume in the compressed air tank. A compressed air tank with a volume of 50 litres or more is best suited for this purpose. In order to be able to work without interruptions, purchasing a larger air compressor is always worthwhile. Models with smaller boilers are usually more mobile, but you have to refill the compressed air tank more often during extensive work than compressors with a larger tank volume.
Accessories and connections
Most connections for compressors are standardised, so you can use various accessories with a quick coupling. Helpful accessories are the compressed air impact wrench, the compressed air stapler and nailer, spray guns and accessories for checking pressure when inflating tyres. For cordless compressors, a second battery is worth considering as a replacement.
