I never own a compressor before and don't know much about it. Will this compressor be powerful to power those impact tools that the auto shops uses to loosen and tighten wheels? If not what's the minimum compressor specs I should look for when looking for one. I want to start building a beginners' workshop in my garage. Thanks

I wouldn't recommend it. An impact wrench will probably draw 5 or more cubic feet per minute and this little compressor with a .5 cubic foot tank will almost immediately fall behind resulting in a drastically lowered PSI at the tool.

I also doubt that the little yellow hose will be able to deliver the air that is needed.

If you buy this compressor for that purpose, I can practically guarantee that you won't be happy with its performance.

I'd recommend a compressor that puts out a minimum of 5cfm at 90psi and a 3/8" or 1/2" hose with high quality fittings to help ensure as little loss as possible.

I believe the 2 tank setup is merely for cost of production purposes. Be it cheaper to put another tank on an existing model, or better rates from the tank manufacturer. I really don't have a definitive answer, but it doesn't make much difference. As for which to choose, you're doing right by looking at oiled models as opposed to oil less. Once you fire up an oil less, you're starting the countdown to its imminent death. As for which one to use with a brad nailer, just look for the best deal. Better yet grab your Sunday paper and head to harbor freight and get their nailer stapler combo for 15 bucks and the little pancake compressor for 40 and be done with it. Of course the compressor is oil less, but it should survive a summer of brad nailing.

As for CFM and capacity, the bigger the better. A larger tank can make up for a lack of CFM, as long as you don't mind being patient. This unit will run your nailer fine, but don't expect it to run an impact or a grinder or cut off wheel for long without stopping to refill.
Thanks for the reply, repped. I picked up this nailer set [homedepot.com] over the winter for something like $75 in another deal here, so I'm set there, was just waiting to find a good compressor to pair with.

I'm tired of low quality, disposable garbage, so although I'm not looking for contractor-level stuff, I still want to try to buy stuff that at least has a shot at outliving me!

This thread set off my Deal Alert for "Oil-Lube", but this isn't the product I was looking for.
Curious what is?

yeah, that is what i based my decision on. it was $100 more but i got 2 gallons more, a higher PSI, and 2 guns...thanks for making me feel like i made the right choice!LOLSmilie

Most air tools provide a spec for the CFM's they use. Most tools usually run at 90 psi.
CFM .. cubic ft min... how much volume does the compressor move is the more important spec most people look at. With respect to cfms at 90 the craftsman is at 2.4 and the Hitachi is at 2.0. So at least in that respect the craftsman is more powerful.

Actually I think the craftsman is a pretty good unit at that price all things considered. It appears pretty heavy duty... oil lubed... thing weighs freekin 70 pounds which is alot for a 4 gallon. Thing must have a good chunk of steel in it.

i've been looking for an air compressor and nothings good has gone on sale. just bought this today for $198...
http://www.lowes.com/pd_331410-67...facetInfo=

should i return it? which gives me more bang for my buck!
while the units are similar, keep in mind the hitachi is an OIL-LESS one and the sears one is oiled. If you want something that will last you for a decade, then get an oiled unit. The oil-less direct drive units will inherently last far shorter than oiled units. All contractors prefer oiled compressors.

Think of it this way. Will your car engine run longer with or without oil? I have a 20 year old oiled compressor that still runs like a champ.

also, take a look at the weight of this thing. Dual tubes will have more weight, but if this thing truly weighs 70 lbs? this is not a very portable unit.....

You can buzz your wheels lugs off with a half inch AIR impact wrench connected to this. But by the time you get to the third wheel your gonna have to give the compressor a few minutes to catch up. Most .5 inch guns are are speced at abour 5 CFM. So technically this compressor won't move enough air to run them. Thing is the spec on the gun is probably based on holding the trigger down for a minute and thats not generally how people would use an air gun.

These compressors are best for smaller nail guns, Intermittent use of larger guns like framers, roofers and air wrenches. And I do mean itermittent... bigger tools will run down a compressor like this. Deffinately no air sanders, sprayers possible with only 2.4 cfm's at 90psi
