The good and the bad...

Pros:All the air you'll need for most jobs.

Cons:Like manovering a 150lb sausage on training wheels.

The Bottom Line: Overall the 6hp 150psi tank provides more than enough cfi for any job. Just hope that the job comes to you so this beast can stay in one spot.


I recently purchased this air compressor and now it is apparent my one fatal flaw which I would like to pass on to you. ONLY BUY THE VERTICAL MODEL. Not only did i find that storing this beast on wheels was an issue (and i vertical tank would have made more sense) but the wheels are a little misleading. It can be manovered around the shop however this isnt a tank you can throw in the back of the van if you want to take it with you. It's a bulky and awkward tank to move by yourself. The performance however has been great. The reason I bought this one is because I wanted a tank that would have enough CFM to power just about anything and this does. I painted an old steel framed bed which a spray gun and it provided more than enough to get the job done. Obviously it's not the quietest one around but it is filling a 33 gal tank and packing 175 psi into it. The only other comment would be that the vertical model allows the regulator to be higher off the ground thus accomplishing two things. First allow taller guys like myself to read the guages without having to kneel down and also it puts the regulator farther away from the drain which allows for less water in the line and easier drainage.
