Built for durability and long life, the EC12's motor will give you consistent, reliable performance.
Efficient Air Delivery System
The EC12's air delivery system makes it ideal for supporting any type of pneumatic nailer or stapler. The large twin stack air tanks provide a maximum air capacity of four gallons and a maximum pressure of 125 psi. Air delivery is 4.2 CFM at 40 psi, 4.1 CFM at 90 psi, and 3.6 CFM at 100 psi.
Oil-Lubricated Pump for Smooth Operation
The EC12 features an oil-lubricated pump for maximum efficiency and smooth operation over the life of the compressor. For convenience, the oil dip stick and drain valve are easily accessible on the exterior of the air compressor.
Designed for Long Life and Portability
Relatively compact in size, the 60-pound EC12 features a convenient carrying handle for portability. And with a rugged all-metal interior and fan, the EC12 is able to withstand any jobsite. An intake filter provides added protection against interior component damage and is easily accessible by removing a single screw. Additionally, a thermal protection feature guards against problems, such as motor overload, by automatically shutting down the compressor.
The Hitachi EC12 Twin Stack Air Compressor is backed by Hitachi's one-year warranty.
