    Compressor recommendations

    I'm planning on upgrading my to a better compressor. Current unit says 120 psi but won't get near that pressure. I'd something decent quality with a tank to occasionally run an impact wrench that can fill tires on my Landmark 5th Wheel which require 110 psi. I have 110v & 220v outlets in my garage. Suggestions? Thanks

    Re: Compressor recommendations

    I bought the DeWalt pancake style compressor that reaches 165 PSI I needed it because my new h rated wheels and tires need 125 psi in my old little compressor wouldn't deal with that you can get that compressor for between $170 and
    $ 190 it's good unit !

    I recently purchased the viair 150 ,and got rid of the Porter Cable pancake compressor.
    And it works great for me and my g614 Goodyear tires.
    I topped off my spare from 60 psi to 110 psi in about 3 minutes. Very happy with the quality and you can add another air hose. I do keep it in my Silverado Duramax dually under the back seat. 41ldGeI0MsL._AA370_-1.jpg

    We purchased a similar Viair a few years ago. The 450-P. Iíve been quite impressed with it. In both its size and capabilities. Next season we will be switching to 17.5 inch tires which I believe have a 125 PSI rating. But I have no fear that this compressor will handle it.

    Re: Compressor recommendations

    Home compressor is a Husky 175 PSI upright unit (CRS as of this writing as I don't know gallon size), but it's portable.
    In the RV, same as Jamie's: the Viair only to use to add air to tires if need be.
    Also in the RV...or at least I carry w/ me is a battery impact wrench (HF special, Earthquake rated at several hundred ponds of tq) to remove and lightly install lug nuts.
    In truck, torque wrench that goes above 150# for both RV and trucks lug nuts.

    Re: Compressor recommendations

    For home, I have the Ridgid 6 gallon/150 psi compressor. Relegated my older 125 psi Makita 3 gallon to the trailer. Also have a Viair set that lives under the back seat of my truck. Replaced the flimsy plastic hose with 50 ft. Goodyear rubber hose. I also have a 24V Impact Wrench from AutoZone. It do da job!

    Re: Compressor recommendations

    I carry a 6 gallon pancake style compressor in the CY pass-thru compartment. It is in the middle against back wall which, because of my tool chest, is a dead spot for me to get to anyway. I leave the compressor switch on and ran the hose and plugin to my recepticle area for easy access. My needs require an air tank, and the 6 gallon does fine.

    John,

    Awesome idea on replacing the plastic hose w/ a 50' rubber one. Have never used the Viair, but if my pea size brain recalls right, doesn't that have to be attached to the truck (or even 5er) battery?

    Re: Compressor recommendations

    I purchased a 6 gallon Port Cable on sale at Home Depot for $120.00 CAD last winter. I can reach it from the door side bay door, set for 130 PSI for H Tires. I have a portable trigger gun with a gauge for mountain bike tires. I turned pressure down for my Mouse Free application gun. Worked really well. I carry a generator so if air is needed on the road I just fire this up for compressor.
