ShoeBox Compressor

See manual

All the bells & whistles, 1/3 the price!

At 10 cubic feet per hour versus 8, the Freedom F10 is faster and even more convenient for all of your airgun charging needs! The F10 doesn't have the "curly" airlines, but does have o-ring fittings for easier maintenance. And with the larger fan, the cooling is much improved!

A small shop compressor acts as the first stage and feeds up to 125 psi of air into the ShoeBox (oil-free shop compressor required). It must provide at least 125 psi output and deliver 2-3 cu ft per minute at 125 psi. Most medium or large oil-free air compressors are adequate for this. The shop compressor does not run continuously. It kicks on only a few times during a small tank fill.

You'll need a hose to connect the shop compressor to the ShoeBox. A 4,500 psi hose with a female quick-disconnect fitting is needed to connect to the ShoeBox air output. The other end of the hose needs a fitting/adapter that fits the air input for your tank or gun.

The Freedom F10 ShoeBox air compressor is a very compact, lightweight unit that's considerably less expensive than any other high-pressure air compressor currently sold. Imagine how convenient it'll be to have your own source of air, filling tanks and gun reservoirs, instead of using a handpump or running back and forth to a store.

The unit requires little maintenance and has relatively quiet operation. In fact, you'll kick yourself for not buying this sooner because it's easy to use.

Helpful resources:

This requires a shop compressor. The Freedom F10 ShoeBox compressor is actually an air booster. You need to hook up the shop compressor to the Freedom F10 ShoeBox and put 100-125 psi air into the ShoeBox. This joint effort delivers faster fill times.

This compressed air should not be used for breathing!

Things I liked:

The color

Things I would have changed:

Buy a different brand perhaps from a different vendor.

What others should know:

First unit I received DON had an inoperative motor that was obviously not tested before factory release. Finally received 2nd unit after a considerable delay. 2nd unit quit after 6 hours and 6 days post shoeboxes warranty period. I followed instructions on their "Mickey mouse" U Tube repair video and. It worked for 10-15 mins and failed again. I am not a mechanical technician so I emailed for help. No response to my plea for help. Don't bother calling. You can't. They don''t have a service line that even the CIA find. Airgunners should not buy and Pyramyd should not carry this product.

Things I liked:

Made in the USA! Personally, I'm a little leery of anything mechanical made in China, considering the quality of their hardware I've dealt with in the past. Pretty slick piece of equipment. A little high priced but very well made. Should last my lifetime. Parts available. Won't overheat anything. Nice looking. Not too heavy. Easy to use and looks to be easy to care for and service. I like it a lot. Filled my 90cu. in. Benjamin tank in a little less than 90 min. from 0 to 4500 psi. (better than advertised)

Things I would have changed:

I would maybe put a base under it so a handle could be attached at center of gravity to make it easier to move about. I'm thinking maybe the intake port should come out the back. (Not a big deal)

What others should know:

If you can afford it, this is a very good compressor. Made right here in the good ole USA!

Things I liked:

The F10 is better than sliced bread . If your using a pump like I was , BUY THIS NOW !!! This new version fills fast too , I filled my tank from 3000 to 4500 in 5 min , this is a 68/4500 ci . If you get the ventury recommended hook up hose , check it for connection leaks , or your going to have a bad day . Mine leaked , once I teflon taped the connections it worked perfectly . First go to lowes or Home Depot and get the air dryer and the filter for the compressor low side , their 25.00 and will keep the air clean and dry .The other thing is , on the F10 , keep it unplugged , plug the air line on and let the air blow through the whole system of the F10 . Mine blew out a lot of oil out the nipple output . Let it blow out for 15 min or until it looks like nothing comes out . To let it blow out with the power unplugged , you need to turn the pistons till you hear air come out of the output nipple . After that it should be good to go .

Things I would have changed:


What others should know:

Keep the air clean and dry and you should never have a problem . Keep the felt oiled up . I used silicone oil but the stuff supplied is thick and wicks slowly . I used thinner silicone oil with the thicker stuff and it works perfectly . Use thinner shock silicone oil for rc cars , like a 25 wt or a 100 wt oil . Then slowly wick the thicker stuff . Check the piston rod bearings often , mine after 2 hours of use the lithium grease already turned from white to yellow brown . Maybe use Vaseline since it's petroleum base

  • Richard from USA asked:

    I own a F10 Shoebox. I have been told that you can use pelgun oil in place of silicone to lube piston rods. Im hesitant to do that. Anyone have any idea?

    • Tyler Patner from USA answered:

      Stick to silicone

  • Jeff from USA asked:

    What is the size, (height, depth, and width), of this pump? They say "shoebox" but I can't find info anywhere with actual sizes.

    • Kenneth from USA asked:

      Unless you are a glutton for punishment, why would you not buy this product? Dang, I should be paid for this question.
