I'm buying a compressor for a nail gun and a pressure washer feature would
True, It get even more complicated. Pressure washers can tout 4000 psi, but
that is over a very tiny area at the tip of the nozzle.
The dynamics of fluid power and air power are also much different. Air is
easily compressed, liquid is not, making is comparatively easy to come up
with high pressures with a small cylinder. The release of pressure is the
opposite, making hydraulic pressure much safer if there is an equipment

It's the tool, not the compressor. A compressor simply supplies air.

they are out there. I also don't recall the CFM requirements, you'd
probably need more than a light duty compressor.
