I'd use this for bike tires, car tires, then maybe painting and nailing. Most of what I look for in that is rated 3 or more cfm @ 90psi. Anyone able to comment on whether 2.4@90 will actually be enough for around the house?

Wow, I am supprised that it is so loud. Usually, an oil filled compressor is much quieter than an air cooled compressor. That is a deal breaker for me.

This thing is pretty good. I have one made by Husky. Refilling speed is very good and it is not too loud compared to oil less systems. Works really well with nailers but simply not adequate to drive torque wrench or most air tools.

15 Amps?
Not necessarily.

Manual states 1.5horse max 1 horse running.

1.5 horse = 13.9-19.5 AMPS depending on the motor
1 horse = 9.3-13 AMPS depending on the motor.


Need to know what they have on the motor nameplate to tell for sure since the manual is to vague.

for home, yes, if you mean by running small nailers, filling car tires once in a while and small touch up paint guns. But i would say no if using it for home auto repaair use. you'd get frustrated waiting for the tiny 3 gallon to build up reserve again.

as a rough rule of thumb, i go with 1-2 cfm for nailers (trim=1, framing/roof 1.5+) especially if you've got everything set up with jigs and just going to town on precut. if you're doing custom where you wait a 10-20 sec between nails, anything will do practically. but if you've seen good roofers, they'll nail down 10 nails in like 2 seconds. that's where a pancake/dual setup is invaluable for 3-5 cfm requirements.

on auto, grinders will chew up air like no one's business 6+ cfm? . i have a 6hp 30 gallon and even that is taxed/kicking on frequently when going to town on the air/die grinders. butterfly/impacts will chew around 3.5 to 5 cfm if i remember correctly,

I am completely not-handy, so please excuse if this is a stupid question.

I have a small sprinkler system. Might this be able to blow it out when I prepare for winter?

Would beat paying the guy to come out with (a much bigger) compressor every year.

Thanks

Thanks, I had been wondering about just that. I looked up a bunch of tools and didn't know whether they were quoting sustained rate or 'average joe' slower rate. The only tool I'd worry about would be using a paint gun - I'd like to be able to paint the outside of my house and that would probably be a sustained use. (And wow, those need big compressors. Some were quoted at 12cfm@40psi or 9cfm@90psi.) I guess for small (shop) projects this would probably still work, since I could use a detail painter at 3-4cfm@40psi?

My friend has a 3 gallon 4.2 @ 90 psi and he said it wasn't enough to do a good job with his sprinkler system.

for spriklers u need a "big" compressor with lots of volume (not necessarily CFM) because u need to fill all the lines with air to displace all the water. this will not even come close to that type of job.

Have owned this for 4 years. Always works well and no problems. Not a heavy user -- car tires, blow the dust out of the shop is about it. Don't do much maintenance on it, either.
