    Air Compressor Parts

    Our old air compressor died, so we got a new one, but this new one didn't come with a hose.

    Its a UST 2.6 gallon compressor with a quick connector for where to attach the hose. the old compressor's hose is different so we cant use that.

    So where do we find a quick connect air hose for it? And are all quick connect hoses the same, or different per brand?

    Thanks for any help.

    There are different sizes of quick connect ends.... hoses shouldn't matter, its the ends that matter. I'd go back to where you got it and get a hose as its most likely hanging nearby.

    Tried that, they don't have any, next stop will be Lowes or Home Depot I guess.

    Not finding anything on their websites though, is there a special name for them?

    Grainger will have the quick connect you need. Make sure it matches they have long and short.

    The tit is shorter on these after the bevel.

    Those are short. Best to look at the fitting for a name? Milton, Foster etc, some brands don't play well with others.

    If your not trying to Match Existing then just buy both halves and your set. You may want to get an extra because when you try to match it in 10 years you may not find it again lol

    I don't suppose you can tell which kind it is looking at the larger pic? Very annoying that the manual doesn't say what the size of it is.

    Cant tell, but if you buy the kit at Home Depot just unscrew that one from the tank and install the one you buy. Just use some teflon tape and you should be good to go.
    Maybe unscrew the one from the tank first to make sure it is 1/4 inch and not 3/8 npt.


    Looking at the Accessory set on that page it looks to be the long one you need. Try the kit from Home Depot, if it don't mate then just change the piece on the tank too.

    I'm about to call UST and tell them how sh*tty their manual is.

    "Turn unit to the NO position" I guess thats suppose to be ON position.

    There a 2 main types of connectors: Industrial and Automotive (might be slang for the types)

    Anyway... most couplers made now days will take both. In the case that yours doesn't, see this:

    Industrial.....:::::|:: <....end looks like this. (shown in YoS link)

    Automotive..::: ( :: ): <....end looks like this. (shown in rainbows link)

    Hope that helps.

    There are only 2 common male ends and most couplers now made take both. (says universal on package)

    Industrial is more common so I'd guess it's what you have.

    There's a Lot more than 2. There are 2 that are standard, they are many non standard ones.
    The 2 standard you can plug the

    'short" ones in the long coupler but you CANNOT plug the "long" ones in the short coupler.
