I bought this little fella in prep for 100k maint. I had been planning on a 30 gallon portable unit, but this went on sale and I couldn't pass it up. I also couldn't justify the cost and space required for a stationary 60+gal unit when I would never use it's full ability.

It has performed very well. The only time it has had any trouble is when I was using a die grinder with stone to grind off a seat belt anchor rivet. After continuous grinding I would have to stop and let it refill the tank. That was an out of the ordinary task that was outside the scope of what I bought the unit for though. It did get the job done

Guys any thoughts on this one??

http://www.harborfreight.com/air-tools/air-compressors/25-hp-21-gallon-120-volt-125-psi-cast-iron-vertical-air-compressor-67847.html

With 20 % off.

House hold use, blow outs, tire inflation, toy inflation, lug nuts, some wrenching, not likely for spray painting.
The biggest value seemed to be at the 30/33 gallon mark. You can find lots of those for good deals and they are a really common size that is good enough for almost everyone's home use.

Diggin the ceiling installation! I've been wanting to get a compressor for a long time. Right now I'm not even going to post what I've got sufficient to say it will pump up a tire and run a die grinder for about 2 seconds...:glum: Great idea! Daisy Chain a whole bunch of $60 compressors to one line.....:hit1:

That is one serious regulator/filter combo.

I didn't go that route because I use my compressor setup for painting. Filling the airlines with oil is kind of a no no for paint. I have in line oilers that I put on the end of the lines at the tools and just the regulator/moisture filter half of what you have at the compressor.

Just received them this afternoon-VERY SERIOUS SETUP!! Getting a second set for future use.....

Huge difference between these and Harbor Freight or any I have seen in the box stores or auto parts stores. Very heavy made to last.

Finally got these plumbed from my cellar out to the garage. Silence is golden LOL!

My foundation wall is over 14 inches concrete, had a bird at the Depot paying over $30.00 for a 3/4 x 18 SDS masonry bit LOL.

My son borrowed a Hilti SDS from work. 4 or 5 minutes through the 14 inch basement wall.
