Air Compressor people!!

Educate me, I have done some reading.

I'm looking for a 20gal or around there air compressor.
The ones that have oil not the oil free kind.
8-10cfm

It's mainly going to be a garage toy but when I want to have fun I want to have fun!

I have read HP doesnt matter and it does can anyone help me out?

Whats a good brand? Price I should expect?

HP only matters if you hook it up to a 240V. That is when you'll get the advertised HP and output.

Ingersoll Rand is the fucking Rolls Royce of air compressors and its price will reflect that.

Expect to pay at least $600 for a decent one. I've been in the market for one, but after looking at them I'm going to get a 60 gallon industrial one from Sears.

The other thing you need to look at is CFM at 45 and 90psi to compare.
Depending on what tools you're going to run, this is going to be what kills you.

I have done lots of research and this is the one I am going to buy, great reviews, super quiet, low amp draw, longlasting cast oil pump and all the power I will ever need!

Gotcha, I thought about buying one from sears not a 60gal but a 30 I think it was.

I heard you ave to have atleast 9cfm to run a sand blasting tool, truth to this?

If you're going to be sandblasting you're going to want a larger tank. I'm not an expert by any means, I just did a bunch of research like last week so that's why I know. I do know that sandblasting requires a lot of CFM. 9 sounds about right. I know I need a beast cause I have an industrial Fuji impact wrench that puts out something stupid like 600+ft/lbs.

I would go with Ingersol Rand if I bought a 20+ gal. compressor. This one is rated for continuous (100%) duty cycle and has a 5.2CFM at 90psi. You can't beat IR air compressors/impacts.

I don't know if you'd want portable or not, but you're going to have a lot more options with a stationary, they'd be a bit bigger than 20 gallons however. I ended up going with a Chicago Pneumatic 26 Gallon, it has more CFM than the IR and Craftsman. Chicago Pneumatic makes the same compressor for Mac Tools. They sell for $650 from Northern tool, and $923 for the mac tools version, but I got mine from a reputable dealer on ebay called air pro. Guys name is Rob, great guy.
