    Anyone out there have a Curtis 80 gallon Vertical Compressor like this?

    I am considering one, but it has to fit in a tight spot under a set of stairs, and was hoping someone here had one and could take some specific measurements. I'd hate to order one and it not fit in my shop...

    Have you checked out Eaton. They may be a little higher but there warranty(5ys) and there customer svc. is top notch. This is one item you only want to buy once. Just my 2cents.

    Thanks...I have those dimensions. The problem is a 36x25x76 box will not fit in the spot...but I know a compressor isn't a rectangular box. I have an old Devilbiss vertical in the spot now. I was trying to find the dimension from the outside of the belt guard or tank...to the back of the compressor head/or back of the motor...as there is a stair tread at 73" that I need to clear...

    I have an old one that looks pretty much the same, it's a 5 hp two stage 80 gallon with the same pump as that. The dimension you're looking for is 16" on mine.

    Another Eaton fan........

    I bet you could call customer service and email your picture over and they could give you a good idea if the compressor will fit into your space...
