Higher PSI, larger tank, better reviews. I think I might stick with the Hitachi.

Trying to check out, but i'm getting a "You have exceeded the number of tries allowed to add a promo code. Please call 1-800-697-3277 for further assistance." Anyone ever see this before?

The Craftsman has a higher CFM than the Hitachi which more than makes up for the smaller tanks.

But depending on the air requirements of the tools you use, it may not matter one way or the other.

I don't to much about air compressors, does .4 scfm make that much of a difference?

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

I've never bought an AC before, so hlep appreciated. Craftsman has SO many apparently similar compressors on their site, for example this [sears.com] and this [sears.com] and this [sears.com]. the only difference spec-wise is the volume (number of gallons) and number of tanks. What is the advantage (or disadvantage) of multiple tanks? It seems puzzling to me that the AC in the deal, the one with the LOWEST capacity in gallons, is also the one with more tanks. Why would they make this with multiple tanks, but each one so small?

My main intended use, FYI: bought a "new" house recently, and have some projects, including some indoor shleving & also building a shed in my back yard this summer. So I want to use this with a brad nailer.

It will make zero difference if you are only shooting a few nails per minute and will only slightly slow you down while topping off your car tires, but if you are using a tool that consumes more air than the compressor puts out, the .4 cfm difference will translate to 20% longer pauses while you wait for the compressor to build up pressure in the tank again.

A larger tank does gives some buffer to the initial wait time, but will take longer to bring back to pressure - especially with a lower cfm compressor.

Look up the cfm requirements of the tools that you expect to use and buy a compressor that puts out at least that amount of air and preferably more, for if you max it out, the compressor will run continuously which could prematurely wear it out.

well, I'm not sure what I want (hoping someone can answer my earlier question, or I have time later to find the answer myself), but I bought it for pickup anyway, since there is only one left at my local store. Anyone buying, don't forget that Discover has 10% cashback for sears through Mother's Day, that knocks another $10 off the price. If it turns out this is not what I want to get, I can always cancel it without picking it up, I figure.

Better compressor motor. Oiled lasts way longer than oil-less, and it is quieter.

Besides the extra gallon, any real differences between the one for sale in this thread and this one [sears.com]? I'm still within my return window. Motor specs look identical. Not sure why one weighs almost double the other. Thanks!

Aside from the gallon and easier portability they are pretty close.

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.
