Selecting a compressor
by: Bill

The first thing that's required is that you know the CFM and pressure requirements of the air tools that you are planning to drive with this air compressor.

Once you've got that figured out, let us know as a comment here what that is, and we'll press on.

Also, complete information about how to select the correct air compressor is covered linked from the navigation bar on the left of the page.

While the tank size is one criteria, there are many you should consider when buying an air compressor, and that decision cannot be made for you by me. We can help guide you, but you also need to do your homework too.
