    Whats your opinion on this air compressor?

    Harbor freight has this air compressor at our local store for $500........The TSC generators cost more and weigh 150lb, this one weights only 135lb....weight is a crucial factor. But how hard do you think it will be to get repair parts for this thing? anyone have experiance with US General engines??

    if you like useing air tools alot (some people dont) you need a much bigger tank and 2times the cfm as that one has, it all a good idea to get one a little bigger then you need so its not always on and running and i does everything you want

    like i said before it all about what you need it for and if you use alot of air tools

    my electric craftsman is rated at pretty much the same cfm and I've never had an issue with it. I have a 30 gal tank with a 6hp motor. I do agree that those tanks need to be bigger.
