Built-in Fan Option!!
Many customers were putting an external fan on the ShoeBox to keep it cool so we listened and now you can order it built-in as an option!
Belt Drive Option!!
You asked for it now we have it! Our latest model incorporates a quiet cog belt drive for your ShoeBox. Single stage reduction, extra quiet, no maintenance or lubrication.
See the Belt Drive model in our online store.
Convery78 on our forum had this to say about the new belt drive.
"I just received my Shoebox compressor back today, from having the NEW retrofit kit installed. Belt drive and hardened pistons. The upgrade is well worth it. From what I can tell, there is about a 26db (+/- a few db) difference between my two units. That’s standing about a foot away from each unit.
Unit 757/3K Chain drive = Avg. 98db
Unit 198/4.5K Belt drive = Avg. 72db
My db meter hasn’t been sent off for Calibration yet this year. So it may be off a few db.”
My unit # 198 has a little over 600 hours on it so far. And I haven’t had any issues at all with it yet, also only rebuild three times so far.
Well designed product! Thank you Tom for the VERY FAST turnaround on the retrofit!"
Retrofit kits available, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. See the Belt Drive Upgrade Video on the Support page.
Hardened Tool Steel Piston Option!
We have sourced M4 hardened tool steel pins for the pistons. These are the pins used in injection molds to push out the finished parts. They are made to cycle millions of times in molds and they are polished to a very smooth finish. They are great for heavy users that want to extend oring life. They do reduce some of the collar pressure adjstment range because they are only available in 10" not our standard 10 1/4" length. Very reasonable way to lower maintenance and extend life. See the Upgrade Pistons Video on our Support page.
Option available on the drop down options list when you order from our online store ($25.00).
