    Most beefy 1ph units are about 14cfm, as that is about the most energy you can suck out of a 13a 240v socket...

    I know this is a little vague, but, if it's at the chunkier end of the 1ph family, it will be around that.

    3ph, and I'll have no comment.

    what Hp is on the motor plate 3Hp is most for 13amp plug
    if so could be 10 to 14 cfm

    Looking at the size of the motor using the 50 litre recover for scale and the rather large looking pulley on the motor, I would guess closer to 10 than 14 cfm.

    Ok, so the motor is 1.5hp, unfortunately that will probably mean 6-8cfm.

    Not great news then I was given it as payment for a job as the guy said he used it to spray old classic cars and it said 16.5 psi on it so I thought it was better than my wee cheap one as it only has 120psi well looks like I was wrong so basically my we cheap one is actually better than this one

    The model of these compressor is usually marked in this position
    A740B552-2F03-4F9F-A3EB-0118F44F598F.jpeg

    I don’t think the cfm is then listed on that but can help identify the machine

    Looks like that motor has been changed. Ingersol rand wouldn't fit a chinese motor like that!

    That's the receiver test pressure.

    Sorry to sound a bit stupid but what does the receiver test pressure mean :)

    All receivers are tested at a higher pressure than the rated pressure so that there is a margin of safety. My older IR compressor has a TP nearly double the rated pressure.
