What are you trying to do with it. That will decide what to recommend. Your 2 biggest things are noise and CFM. Do you have a 220v outlet or just 120v? Do you plan on just doing some small odd jobs with it or using it to do work?

120V is what I have right now. I plan on using for staple gun, Sander and impact reach. be able to do small/basic painting.

i was running a harbour freight air compressor, did everything i needed it to do. the only downside was how long i could run it for. i think it was 26 gallons. you can only do so much sanding before the compressor kicks back on and you lose some power from the sander.

I used a 6 gallon air compressor when I made my door pods. Really need to upgrade, how long did it take for the compressor to gain its power back?

ime, for air tools other than a nail gun you need at least 80 gallons to get anywhere in a timely manner without stopping.

my 60 gallon 220v speedaire has a hard time keeping up with my d/a or impact gun after 10 minutes of constant use as i have to rest for a few minutes to let it charge.

at one time back in '04 i was in a hard spot with only a one gallon campbell hausfield and a pair of half shafts to remove and install in my crx,.. imagine my frustration having to use an impact.

Been doing alot of research on air compressor. I do realize the best choice is a 60+ gallon air compressor. I'm currently renting so upgrading to a 220v isnt a option. So here is have i've come up with, between the 3 link below which one would you choose?

1. Shop Campbell Hausfeld 1.3 HP 20-Gallon 200 PSI Electric Air Compressor at Lowes.com
2. Air Compressor with Impact Wrench: Get Cranking with Tools from Sears
3. Husky 20-Gal. Portable Air Compressor-F2S20VWD at The Home Depot

I plan on buying one them this weekend.

For what you are doing any of those will work. You biggest thing will be the impact or DA if you uise them. You will get a few minutes between rounds of charging other wise pressure drops off enough the tool doesn't work properly.

Get at least a 26 gallon to run tools anything smaller is good for tires only! go larger like 50 gallon if you want to shoot paint. otherwise the compressor while cycle on and off till you pop a fuse...as for 220 vs 120 it would be a matter of having a 220 power outlet installed if you don't have one and if you don't know a electrician you'll pay through your rectum...for a solid answer I would suggest 26 gallon minimum, as for brands ingersol rand and devilbis are bout the best if you can afford one! my current is a cambell hussfeld which is ok at best but well worth the 179 bucks I paid 10 years ago!
