The NorthStar 8-gallon twin-tank gas-powered portable air compressor is engineered for longevity and heavy-duty work on the jobsite.

The belt-driven full cast iron single-stage pump features a V-type cylinder design for superior cooling, low vibration technology (LVT) for smooth operation, and floating-type Swedish steel valves for long valve life. The crankshaft has bearings on both ends for excellent support. It is powered by a Honda GX160 OHV gasoline engine for reliable performance.
