I'm probably going to buy it this weekend...it'* amazing how much easier air tools make working on a car.

Any suggestions? Seems like a great deal to me.[/url]

Those oiless air compressors are loud,, you'll go crazy working
around that thing,

find your self a nice small piston type A/C much better,, pump faster too...

Look at recovery .. it'* one thing to fill the compressor. And if you have recovery..then you don't need a huge tank.

My only advice would be: Don't grab any parts while they are moving. They're like machines or something!!

I wish I could convince The Missus I needed toys like that. But, since she wats me to finish the attic, I'll just start small with like an air nailer, and then add on to that..

Ok..more time..read the description better.

Look at the compressor alone...what the heck is 40/90 psi? which is it? I run my compressor at 125psi and all my tools work well. While the compressor has plenty of punch and good recovery..my tank is a little undersized when running an air tool for say 3 full minutes.
built in beer break..lol

Air tools.. You can get a great quality air tool... it does cost a good chunk. Although..I purchased a Stanley Professional series 1/2 gun recently. $78 at Walmart. It'* the Stanley name on an Ingersol gun.

I have the 33 gallon craftsman compressor ith the same size motor on top. Most of my air tools are Blue Point or Snap on. Tha compressor is VERY LOUD, but it can keep up with almost everything, it has a little trouble with die grinders and sanders. I leave it at 150 psi, and it kicks on at 120psi, so when you are working it is almost constantly on. I use it all the time though

I think I'll buy this becuase I trust the craftsman name more than Husky.

Kinda sucks I live in a town house complex...the neighbors will love the loud *** compressor
