I bought mine after 20 years of wrenching and don't know how I went without one. Then I found Princess Auto, and went nuts buying air tools of all sorts.


Thanks, I probably will end up mounting it to the floor although I was thinking of leaving it on the skid, probably be safer mounted to the floor, and its actually my third compressor, first one was a old 3 hp from the mid 70's the motor went so I gave it to my nephew he replaced it along with a new pessure switch, and its still going, then I had a buddies 4 hp on loan for a long time so when he needed it back I went hunting and found this one, once you have one you always wonder how you worked with out one.

I have a Campbell Hausfeld 60 gal. with a 5 hp pump. It runs real good, and a lot quieter than other ones I have had. They might cost a bit more but I think they're worth it.

Have one from my father in law. An old CH Canadian model 2 HP/30 gal, it has to be 40 yrs old and still going. He used it to paint 4 of his show cars and 2 old miltary vehicles he had. I had a 60 gal but the motor gave up, when he passed away. My MinL divide up all his tools between the boys.

The Ultimate Off Road vehicle is 64 Tons, Tan/Green, has a 120MM Cannon , a crew of 4 and can make popcorn.
It's a LEOPARD TANK
My new one 2003 Larit FX4, 5.4.
