I use mine to blow the bad air out of the Salt Lake Valley when the temperature inversion gets unbearable.
It'* not terribly portable, obviously, but air hose is cheap.
Whatever you do, get a decent compressor and good impact gun. Not all impacts are created equal! Some cheaper ones won't have the torque required to bust a lug nut loose.

I did that for 2 reasons - first, having it out back frees up space in my garage and second, I don't want to hear that thing running while I'm in there working (so I make my neighbors listen to it). My father-in-law has his industrial-"strenth" (<==== athletic term) compressor inside his shop and I wet my pants every time that thing kicks on - you can't anticipate when it'* going to start.
