If you are in need of an air compressor for your shop, you might want to check out this web site: www.govdeals.com Currently there is a large number of compressors listed for auction. The site is easy to use, you can create an account for free and then you can bid.
I bought on from a small local Fire Dept. in Kentucky last spring. 5hp/60 gal vertical tank, new pump, almost new motor for $260.00. I had to go get it, about a $100.00 in fuel/eats for a one day trip, I live in north central Ohio. I had to do some mods for assembly , build a belt guard, plumbing and wiring but with it up and running I have less than $500.00 in it. A new unit to match this one runs from $1000.00 +.
You have to factor in the cost of going after the items because of fuel cost but there is alot of good stuff for auction. I check the site everyday.
