    Air Compressors

    With the talk of palm hammers and pneumatic tools recently, it got me thinking of air compressors.

    Does anyone have one of these? Max Compressor The high-pressure tools seem like a nice way to go, though I have not had the privelege of using them, except at a JLC trade show demo. The selection of tools appears limited. I suspect the Max Stapler is a nice unit.

    I have used these DeWalt compressors and have been pretty impressed.

    What does everyone use?

    Eaton Compressor

    As a homeowner, I was looking for a unit under $200.00. I searched a lot of reviews and found that the units at Home Depot and Sears have lots of problems, like air leaks right out of the box and excessive noise. A lot a people were raving about their Eaton compressors, so I ordered one (the contractor model with roll cage). It works great, and is very high quality. And the most amazing thing is that it's actually made in the USA. Imagine that! :-)

    Campbell Hausfield Extreme Duty

    has been my favorite. It's very heavy to carry is my only complaint. It has a huge 2 hp motor, not a palm sized motor like some. I'll bet I have 8 years on it and it will run with two staplers or a stapler and palm nailer together.

    I bought it from their website as a reconditioned model and saved some $$.

    I bought a cheapie 12VDC a year ago for new slab air test jobs where there is no power.

    I have a Porta Cable with wheels & an extending handle. Great idea, and it keeps up well. Oil free helps as well. For boiler / furnace cleaning, I use the Rehvac system with liquid CO2. Got a 'mother tank' and I refill the small tank when needed. GREAT system and very portable.

    Just a guy running some pipes.
