We had schedule 40 pvc pipe in the shop for the longest time and never really had an issue, we switched to black iron when we got the big screw compressor's.

My brothers used the Rapid Air Fast pipe system in their shop. They hooked the air compressor in with a hydraulic hose also. Electrician had them power the compressor of one of the main light switches. Sometimes shops burn down when compressors run wild. Most folks turn the lights off was the protective theory.

We have black iron pipe here in the farm shop, no problems after 35 years. At work we have really heavy wall plastic--could be PVC, CPVC-I don't really know. Its 22 years old and we have had a few blowouts over the years. Its pretty easy to splice into it when we need to make repairs or add/rearrange equipment. Boss was looking into replacing it all with some sort of aluminum, don't know why he didn't follow through. FWIW, we run 100-105 psi at work, at the farm shop its about 140--wherever the compressor cuts off at. Oh yeah, at shop the lines are steel in the compressor house, we switch to plastic once they are inside the shop, past the regulator. Early on the plastic didn't like the heat and cold in the compressor house is why we made the switch.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
