Following their newly designed JET air tools that were released last year, JET now offers the option to power them with their own industrial grade compressors. Assembled in the USA, JET has their sights on maintenance shops, automotive repair, medical, aerospace, marine, and agricultural sites to compete with Ingersol, Snap-On, CP and others. Designed under strict standards and inspection requirements, JET compressors are ASME certified and made for long lasting performance. With a starting price of only $799 and solid performance we have seen with their new Jet air tools these guys could become a serious player in air compressors.
JET shop compressors are available in 60 gallon single stage models and 80 gallon two stage models and are designed with cast iron components as well as several other features such as enclosed motor assembly and belt guard to prevent mechanical damage. The piston-type reciprocating motor is protected by a Low Oil Guard feature that automatically shuts off the compressor when oil levels become low.
The smallest model, the 60 gallon JCP-601 ($799), is powered by a 3.2 HP, 230V single phase motor and has a 10.2 CFM delivery rating @ 90 psi and maxes out at 135 psi. Their high-end 80 gallon model, the JCP-804 ($2499), houses a 7.5 HP, 3 phase motor capable of 25.1 CFM @ 90 psi with a maximum of 175 psi.

La Vergne, TN – JET® Tools has designed and built a new line of industrial grade single- and two-stage 60 and 80 gallon oil-lubricated vertical air compressors. Assembled in the U.S., the new piston-type air compressor line has ndergone rigorous testing to ensure reliable and dependable performance in the most demanding shop environments.
The vertical-style compressors feature cast iron pumps, ASME-certified tanks and durable and industrial-rated NEMA motors for dependable, long-lasting service. Each compressor has a built-in safety valve, high pressure switch and a fully enclosed metal belt guard to help ensure safe operation. The compressors have a powder-coated finish and an open feet designed base for unrestricted access to the drain valve.
The JET air compressors are ideal for machine and fabrication shops, automotive service and body shops, fleet maintenance facilities, farm and agricultural settings and woodworking applications and operations.
Typical applications range from sanding, sand blasting, powder coating, painting with HVLP paint sprayers to wrenching, blow-downs for cleaning, air brushing, cutting, drilling, nailing and more.
Each air compressor’s oil lubricated pump has a low oil guard indicator that monitors oil levels in the crankcase. If the oil level falls too low, the compressor automatically shuts down. The compressor’s finned pump design dissipates heat buildup and extends pump life. A replaceable pump filter helps ensures clean air.
The JET single stage 60 gallon (JCP-601) air delivery rating is 10.2 CFM (cubic feet per minute) @ 90 psi with a 75 percent duty cycle. Its maximum air pressure is 135 psi.
