mainly tyres, tractor in particular slow to fill

I find the compressor I was 'talked into' buying takes forever to top up or catch up when I have to inflate tyres.

Slow fill
by: Bill

If the application is simply to fill tyres, you want to guestimate how much air the tyre will need, (see the page on tank sizes for comparison) and at what time to fill do you want?

With that, you can determine the HP of the motor and the compressor CFM output to meet that demand.

With no idea of what compressor you currently have, it's pretty hard to suggest what the next size up, or two or three sizes up, would be.

Good luck.

slow air?
by: Doug in s.d.ca.

Bummer.

The bigger the tire, the longer to fill, just like a bucket.

What compressor they sell you?

How big are your tractor tires? Pressure required?
