Found some nice deals in the tools section, few hundred off tool boxes and also this 7 Gal. Air compressor!! Total price $95.54 (with MA sales tax 6.25%)

I was looking into the 3Gal it is a little more expensive for some reason?!

But the wheels are a must because these things are heavy! Don't be a hero in the garage use your head! And of course Oil-Lubed to keep it going for years!
I was looking into the Husky 10 Gallon which sold out too quick, but also good options on ebay for various size brand name compressors.

Yes it will have no trouble delivering full power to a 1/2" gun for a bit. The tank is large enough that I could probably remove 2 wheels from my car before the pump kicked back in (8 lugs total). However, it's not a very fast pump. So once it turned on you might have to wait a bit for pressure to build back up.

Overall I see this is just an OK deal. Here's my problem with it. $80 is a good price for a 7 gallon, oil lubed compressor. But the pump is really low CFM. I've used one of the 5.5 gallon California Air Tools compressors with similar pump CFM rates. Well they aren't great for bigger loads but they are VERY quiet. This isn't a quiet compressor. It may not be stupid loud but it's not quiet.

$80 is very good for something other than the $50 2 gallon Christmas specials but for around $80-100 there are other options (might have to wait for holiday sales).

Here are some alternatives in about the same price range (some when they are on sale)

I think I've seen ebay sellers with referb versions of this for about $80. Given the 150 vs 135 psi tank pressure these basically store just as much air. The pump is just as strong. These aren't known for being quiet but I suspect the Craftsman isn't quiet either. Size and low weight are pluses here. If size and weight aren't your main concerns the Cman is cheaper but this is the sort of performance the Cman will deliver. Since my compressor basically stays in the garage I would pick the Cman over this one.

Lowes and HD 8 gallon, oil free things
https://www.lowes.com/pd/Kobalt-8...r/50129758
http://www.homedepot.com/p/Husky-.../206470729
These are both under $100 ($90 IIRC) when on sale. I would expect both to go on sale as the holiday sales start. Compared to the Sears compressor they have a bit more tank volume and significantly more powerful pumps (~3.8 CFM vs 2.4 CFM). They aren't quiet and the Sears is probably going to last longer but the difference in pump flow rate will make a big difference for tools you run continuously. Even though I expect these to be somewhat louder, for me the extra power is worth it. If you can wait for the next sale get one of these instead.

Menards has 6 and 8 gallon models similar to the Lowes and HD models. They claim slightly higher flow rates but I suspect to some extent this many be numbers games. I bet they are all close enough as to be impossible to notice. Anyway, a bit less tank size vs the Cman, $90 and $100. Given the more powerful pumps (and the 8 gallon tank on the bigger one) I would take either of these over the Cman.

Finally, the Harbor Freight 8 gallon, oil lubed.
https://www.harborfreight.com/8-g...68740.html
When on sale these are around $100 but I think things like the compressor oil has to be purchased separately. Figure a real cost around $110 when on sale. This would be the best of the bunch in my book. It's an oil lubed pump that flows around 4 CFM. It has a larger tank but the 125 psi means a bit less stored air vs the other 8 gallon models. Still, given the oil lubed pump this would be my choice of the bunch.

The 7 Gallon is a nice deal. The 3 gallon is not a special price.

7 Gallons is not a lot but it does allow you to run a quality impact gun if you don't mind waiting for it to refill after every tire.

Ordered the 7 gallon unit for $64 after points, with an addition $10 in points due back, making it about $55!

Looks like the difference is 3 gallon vs 7 gallons, 7 gallon is much better if you have the room and are comfortable with the extra weightf. Nice that the use oil, oiless are noisier and have short life expectancies.

Yes for sure. I ran a nailer off a 3 gallon compressor...it just had to run almost constantly.

If it was 150psi and 2.5 hp I'd prob pull the trigger. Think my little 5 gal one is rated like that so I cant warrant the loss in power for the capacity gain
