Default Buying a Air compressor for the garage.. Suggestions?

Ive been looking at a few .. These seem to be good quality and have a pretty good CFM rating .. Not wanting to go all crazy with huge 230 volt unit thats gonna need its own breaker.. Just a nice sized one for the impacts and other air tools

Out of those the 2nd one is the best. You DO NOT want a direct drive oil less unit. They are VERY loud! so that takes out the 1st one.

I dont mind it being loud. Ive worked around compressors for 12 yrs, and I live in the country

Oil less units are also supposed to be better in the cold, which in MN, we are below freezing 5 months out of the year

I picked up a compressor on sale at Harbor freight. It runs my 1/2 Gun with no problem. If you are going to be using the air constantly you may want to look into a higher quality unit. But for the average guy this one works well 3.5 HP, 25 Gallon, 125 PSI Air Compressor - Compressors-Oil - Air Tools
