    ​Rol​air JC10PLUS Air Compressor Review

    Rolair is a third generation, family owned business that manufactures high quality gas and electric air compressors. Located in Hustisford, Wisconsin, Rolair, also known as Associate Engineering Corporation has earned an excellent reputation for producing high quality, contractor grade compressors.

    Rolair's JC10PLUS air compressor is a recent upgrade to the popular Rolair JC10 model. A few notable improvements include upward facing gauges and a convenient integrated power cord wrap, furthermore, a larger air tank encased in a sturdier steel roll cage were added.

    The 2.5-gallon air tank fills quickly from 0 to 125 PSI in only 55 seconds. Recovery time from the low-pressure switch kick-in of 95 PSI to the maximum air pressure rating of 125 PSI takes only 14 seconds.

    Rolair's 1725 RPM twin cast aluminum cylinder compressor utilizes a low maintenance oil-free design and only draws 7.5 amps. Stainless steel reed valves and industrial-grade ball bearings ensure long compressor life.

    ​Rolair recommends their air compressor tanks be drained after each day's usage to help prevent rust and corrosion from the water that collects in the tank. ​The Rolair JT10 ball valve tank drain make this ​job easy. ​

    ​A silencing air filter​ ​is included to help filter airborne ​dust​ and ​reduce intake noise produced by the air compressor. The the air filter ​should be cleaned regularly, by simply opening the filter cover and removing the filter element, blow or brush off the accumulated dust and dirt and reinstall. The ​Rolair part number for the filter is ​U4001 although it appears to be a common FS-04-038 ​Solberg silencing filter.

    ​One complaint is that the silencing air filter sticks out of the protective steel roll cage and is subject to rough handling damage.
