Default XD3000 service interval: What needs to be done?

Well I got the K3LA on my truck but decided to go bigger, so next summer that horn, the 5 gallon tank, and OB2 will go on my wife's truck and I'll be looking at the 12 gallon tank and the XD3000 for my K5LA.

What exactly needs to be done for the 50 hour service intervals?

Could be the oil change and checking the carbon brushes. Those are the only ones replaceable for maintenance that I could see. I have mine for over a year now and not a single problem with it. When I had the 400c's I always brought a voltage indicator coz the relays/solenoid main contacts always fuse together, this keeps the compressor running until the fuse is removed. I added a fan on my XD3000 which keeps it cool.

It has to do with the oil discharge rate which is 1 ounce every 50 hours of run time. The optimal oil level in the crankcase is 10 ounces and the minimum is 8 ounces but it's best to check it every 50 hours anyway. Actually 6 ounces is when the bearings get starved of oil. The oil rings on some of our compressors have seated so well the customer is seeing even longer maintenance cycles.

If the compressor starts chirping like a bird, that's a good indication it needs oil.

The motor brushes are massive and should last for many years before needing to be replaced. Besides, they're are easy to replace.

Thanks Dan .... looks like this spring I'll be buying one from HB. I had a lot of fun with it while I was home, and my wife and sons have having a blast with it as well.

Thanks Kris for corrupting someone else...its still your fault!

I am also looking into the oasis but one of my big concerns is noise, I like the output of the oasis far and above anything else but what kinda noise does it produce? I know stupid question but I like the sound of my truck far too much to have it over shadowed by the compressor which is kinda the way it is now with my 400c installed on there.

We haven't measured our compressor noise with a db meter but estimate it to be 50 to 60 db. You can stand next to it and still carry on a conversation without yelling. Using a good sound dampening material under the compressor really helps.

We had a magazine do a compressor comparison envolving fill rates and ours wasn't any louder than than the others, at least not by much.

Dan,

Thanks for the follow up. The other question I have is this: Can another oil besides Mobil 1 be used? I'm using Valvoline Blue for my diesels and was wondering if I could use it as well.

Mobil 1 was ok for the old models that didn't have oil control. Now we recommend a full synthetic compressor ester oil, either SAE 30 weight or ISO 100 which is the same. These are good for temeratures to -40 degrees.

We sell our brand for $9.95 a pint (16 ounces) and the optimal level for our compressor is 10 ounces. Comparable brands are Amsoil DCK or PCK and Royal Purple Synfilm Recip. Both use the ISO 100 designation. Some customers have used Ingersol-Rand's synthetic compressor oil.

I looked up Valvoline Blue and it appears to be mixture of petroleum and synthetic. You can always try it but keep an eye on the compressor until you're sure it's ok. It might discharge a little faster than our oil as we found that with some oils we tested.
