Please Note: The EC-3000 is recommended for filling PCP guns only and is not to be used for breathing air.



Hill is well known as the leader in hand pumps that produce dry air for PCP airguns, and now they are expanding into the world of compressors, with the EC-3000!  This is the compressor of the future.  Not only does it have an adjustable output pressure and automatic shutoff, but it is all digital, meaning you can control your fill pressure down to the last PSI or BAR if you want to.  No messing with a dial on a physical gauge, if you want to fill your Air Arms S510XS to exactly 250 BAR, set the output pressure to 250 BAR, and start your fill.  The EC-3000 will stop when you get to 250 BAR, and you'll even be able to watch it build pressure on the screen as it fills.  It's as simple as that.  

You can also adjust the display to show pressure in BAR, PSI or MPa.  That way, no matter what you are filling, you can ensure you are getting the right amount of air into your rifle or pistol with every fill.  Made in England by the cleanest name in hand pumps, Hill Pumps, the EC-3000 is made to last with minimal servicing needed.  There is an on-board filter to keep the air dry and clean and there's even a safeguard in place to keep the unit from overheating.  

In addition to the cooling fan, the unit is programmed to shut off at 75C automatically, until it cools adequately, and then it will restart itself and continue the fill.  This system keeps you from having to constantly stop and start the unit and also eliminates the need for bulky water tanks.  The unit is lubricated with silicone lube, fed from a small container stored on the right side of the compressor.  It takes low maintenance to a whole new level!  Almost as low as the 75 dB sound signature the compressor makes while running!

  • Kral Puncher Jumbo (425cc): 0 - 200 BAR in approx. 7:15 min
  • Umarex Gauntlet (213cc): 0 - 3000 PSI in approx. 3:30 min

Things I liked:

Quality construction,design , components... Easy to use ( using the rotary dial to set pressure and start filling becomes easy after a couple uses)

Things I would have changed:

Would be nice if unit also had an analog pressure gauge

What others should know:

As with most all PCP compressors this unit is expensive and I was uneasy to make the purchase ....that being said, I am impressed enough by its build quality and design that it should have a service life long enough to offset its cost

Things I liked:

Not water cooled. Has auto shut off. Can pump to 4300psi. Quiet. Very high quality. Fairly light and not too big.

Things I would have changed:

Entering data can be a little touchy. You have to tap the button quickly not press it.

What others should know:

I am new to the PCP world so I have no comparison to make but I like that it is made in the UK and not China. It pumps up very quickly and I have no regrets in buying it. I feel that it is the best. Parts and schematics are available and that is very important to me. I would recommend it to a friend.

  • Yavor from USA asked:

    what is the thread size for the intake air filter?

    • Fred from USA asked:

      I know this is a fairly robust compressor, so mine should last a while. However, someday I will need to rebuild my EC3000. Will rebuild kits be available? Thank you!

      • bushhead from USA asked:

        Can you fill a three liter tank with the Hill compressor

        • Yavor from USA answered:

          l filled up my 75cubic foot tank, took a few hours and had to drain the moisture separator every 15 minutes, but it is possible, yes
