I have a PrimeAir 2HP with dual tanks tottalling 4 Gallons. Motor and compressor are rated for 100% duty run time. Great unit!!...but doubt it would keep up with painting ...and already know it will not push a texture gun.
Did anyone answer the question regarding an Auxillary storage tank? Will this help the above shortcomings?
well sorry about the miss informatin but that is what i was told. see i had to send one out because we were not a warranty center for CH. maybe the shop we sent it to gave the wrong info, thanks
Greg's Garage asked a question that I had asked earlier that was would an auxillary tank solve the problem and make one of these "contractor compressors' do the job of powering a impact wrench or air ratchet.
The salesman at Tools for Less swears it will. He said he has a customer that does on the spot auto body repair and they mounted PC stacked tank compressors with one and two 11 gallon aux tanks on their trucks and it is working fine.
Porter Cable salesman tells me this compressor will serve my needs in fact that is the one he recommended over everything in the store. I will say he did this after I gave him my specifications. One being the smallest compressor that will do the job. I asked about a oil lubed belt drive and he assured me it was total overkill and what I needed was the CPF23400S.
Take a look at the PrimeAir compressers. The little one I have is great. Oil Lube. Rated for 100% run time. Price is very competive and is much quiter than oilless models.
If I can chime in a little bit late. I originally bought one of the small pancake compressors, but I banged the side of my knee everytime I picked the blasted thing up. Took it back and exchanged it for a 25 gal. upright with wheels. It has the same sized footprint as the pancake style, and a lot more capacity. The cost was relatively close. It's a 6 horse, 135 psi model PC. I've been very pleased
