I need a new compressor, one that I can roll around from time to time and
than can power my 6cfm (@ 40psi) spray gun.
The best deal/CFM seems to be the 60gallon/3hp/220v Husky Pros from HD
followed by their 30gallon/2hp/120v brethren. The former is somewhat
top-heavy (perhaps even more so than a drill press) and rather averse to
motion but has plenty of output for my needs. The latter is downright agile
for my mobility needs but is a rating of 6.6cfm (40 psi) sufficient? (I
know my twin-tank Makita compressor is definitely not.)
Any relevant experience/problems with either of these options? Does anyone
keep a 60gallon compressor on a mobile base?
PS: The HD variants load the tank only up to 135psi, while the Lowe's
models go up to 155. I suspect the latter will cause more noise and heat
than I want to deal with, but I have no real experience on that matter.
