I'm trying to decide on an air compressor and would like to collect a few opinions. I'd like to do a small amount of sand blasting with it, a moderate amount of spray painting, but mostly would be used for blowing off and cleaning equipment, tire inflation, that kind of thing. My local Tractor Supply has three choices that interest me which is more than anyone else has locally that I've found so far. The first is a Campbell Hausfeld vertical 30 gal rolling tank 5.5 H.P. Peak 150 Max. P.S.I. 5.1 SCFM @ 90 P.S.I. that can be seen here: http://www.mytscstore.com/detail.asp?pcID=1&paID=1010&sonID=469&page=1&productID=9828 I can't find a machine exactly like it on the Campbell Hausfeld site so it may be a special deal thing for Tractor Supply unless I just plain missed it. I've had a Campbell Hausfeld in the past and had no complaints with it though I never really used it hard. Another possibility is their Farm Hand 5.0 H.P. Peak, 26 Gal. Vertical Air Compressor Single Cylinder, Oil-Lube, Cast Iron Pump 5.7 SCFM @ 90 P.S.I. that can be seen here: http://www.mytscstore.com/detail.asp?pcID=1&paID=1010&sonID=469&page=1&productID=9827 I know nothing at all of this brand and have never heard of it before but its features seem comparable to the Campbell Hausfeld above at another hundred bucks higher cost. They both only list peak horsepower. I'm figuring their steady running horsepower about 2.0-2.5 hp or so. They also had an Ingersoll Rand model roughly comparable to the above two that I cannot find on their website anywhere that I believe was their vertical model Garage Mate that can be seen here: http://air.irco.com/asg/small_recip/garage_mate.asp It has a 4 hp peak, 2 hp running, 5.7 cft @ 90 psi and a 24 gallon vertical tank. Anyone want to venture an opinion on the suitability of the above compressors for my needs? .....Alan.
