Product description

The Peerless Black 2500 is designed for the building industry and home handyman, being one of the largest direct drives on the market producing 154 litres of free air delivery per minute, the PB2500 also ensures a more compact lightweight compressor that is portable and fits easily in the back of a utility. 

Suitable for framing gun and finishing gun but not suitable for a coil gun, for a coil gun we recommend using the Peerless Black 14000 belt drive air compressor.

For a light industrial air compressor it packs a lot of punch but it also has its limitations, keep in mind for high air demands you will have to step it up to a bigger air compressor like a belt drive, be sure to check your air tools for the air flow requirements but most importantly use our "Find the right air compressor" tool located on our home page to assist in making the right decision for your air needs. 


Please note: air compressors i.e piston type, are not designed to run continuously they must cut in and out. Direct drive models should only have up to a 40-50% duty cycle. Belt Drive hobby models are up to 60-70% and full industrial belt drive models are up to 75-85%. If the compressor runs over these duty cycles it could cause failure. Important - first check voltage on each building site as low voltage will cause the motor to fail on all compressors. It must have be better than 230 volt at peak times. Extension leads will cause voltage drop, it's better to use extra air hose.

Performance of all our belt driven air compressors are to AS4637.

For over 60 years Peerless Products has been delivering and exceeding the needs of industry. Ask us about your requirements.
