2.6 gallon tank FYI. A bit small for my uses but probably fine for a contractor.

Decent deal for a trim/tire compressor. Front page was $158 this time last year on this compressor with an amazon discount per $100 spent.

Could you hook this up to a larger tank without it affecting the air compressor?

Definitely. I bought this for my framing jobs (I also have a small Senco 1gal for trim) but the 2hp motor is probably a bit overkill for a 2.6 gallon tank tbh.

Thanks for the help.

What's the limit as far as tank size? Let's say a 40 or 80 gallon tank. Wouldn't the air compressor run for a very long time and get damaged?

Right now I have a 5 hp to a 50 or 80 gallon tank but I need a backup for emergencies.

There is also some decent "Open box" compressors on this site which would save quite a bit of $ from buying one that was "new in sealed box"

Pulled the trigger on it. If you have a Chase Freedom Visa, there is a 5% cashback on paypal purchases through December 31st (Must be activated), so that's technically an additional $9 off...

the issue with this is that it will take a while to fill the tank and be very loud the whole time. nothing wrong with it tho.

edit: forget about the loud part, just noticed this isn't a cheap dry air compressor.

The duty cycle (unless it has changed) is 50%. If it's running non-stop for a long time, it could become damaged. That said, I've seen this particular model run flat out well in excess of its rating and come out fine on the other side. They are really built well.

Mine will hold a full tank of air indefinitely (no leaks) and runs nice and quiet. It's on a different planet compared to the cheapie oil-less compressors of comparable size.
