Peerless Black Compressor PB2000



This super light weight and super quiet Air Compressor is the ultimate builders’ choice when wanting a framing Air Compressor.

Producing 65 Litres Per Minute of Free Air Delivery this can be used for intermittent air tools and not continuous use. The PB2000 does what it is designed for exceptionally well however in cases where more air is needed such as coil nailer we recommend stepping up to a belt driven PB14000. Slow revving at 1350RPM drawing 6AMP’s compared to most other direct drives at 2850RPM drawing 8+AMP’s.

This model has Heavy Duty Teflon technology (Made in USA) fitted to get the maximum use and performance from the Air Compressor. On average 2000+ hours before requiring a service.

It’s light weight design makes it easy to carry around from job to job along with its compact design being able to be stored a lot easier than the conventional air compressor on a tank. Available in three configurations ranging from the standard 9L, Tubie 5L and the XL boasting a 24L air receiver with fitted electronic auto drain.

Best suited for framing guns, car tyre inflation or the odd job to blow out.

Did you know?

In standard environment conditions when your air compressor reaches 14 PSI you have the reached the volume of air in the receiver!. So on this particular model (PB2000) at 14 PSI you have 9L of compressed air in the tank. At 28 PSI you now have 18L of compressed air in the tank. So if the cut out pressure is 112 PSI, you now have 72L of stored compressed air! Who said small tanks don’t hold enough air?
As mentioned this can be affected by the temperature and other factors.
Smaller tanks also equates to quicker air recovery times of lost pressure along with lower operating temperature of pump.


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.
