hey, saw this ( http://robins.bookoo.com/i/49706198 ) for sell and have been thinking about getting a new compressor. Right now, I got a 3 gallon pancake piece of crap. This is mainly for nail guns and stuff. Is it worth the $150?
Yea, i dont plan on doing any real big projects. Right now im trying to justify why i need it since i dont use one to much right now. Mainly cause its loud and runs every 5min. Its used so what do I look for?
what you have is probably an oilless compressor,they are loud,the one in the link also looks like an oilless.
I have found out, for a full size spray paint you need a (oil lubricated)compressor with minimum of 10 cfm @90 psi,13 cfm would be ideal.
I have one of those. I do spray some, not a lot, so it works fine for me. distrbd called it right is very loud, forget about talking when the compressor is cycling. I think there might have been a recall on it…I never took it in though. Can't even remember what the recall was in reference to. 150 is an ok price, certainly not a steal….offer him less see what happens.
That one in the photo is an airless. I bought a low model like that for $50 from a guy that bought a big vertical one. I have to leave the barn when that thing is running. Noisy as all get out!! It does have pretty good volume to run my die grinder, though.
