Hi, I am looking to buy a 5hp, 220v, upright, 80 gal. air producing machine. I have some shop sand blasting to do, as well as the usual uses. As usual I have a bunch to choose from. I want my un born great great grand kids to use whatever I buy. What is the best to good brand/ model. I fear that will go mad if I do not decide on one soon.


Thank you,

Best compressor

Daryk, I've moved this to the buying a compressor forum which has lots of information to help you decide what model and brand to buy.

Information is available here: http://www.about-air-compressors.com/Buying.html

There are many factors involved, some of them relating to where you are, and all have to be considered in order to acquire the best compressor.

I cannot decide for you. Good luck.
