    I am finally purchasing my own Air Compressor. I’m somewhat familiar to them and have used them in my buddy’s shops. I have never bought one myself and want to be sure I am on the right track.

    I will be using the following tools:
    Impact Gun
    Grinders
    Wheels
    Spray Guns (with moisture filters)
    and others I’m sure!

    I know it’s all about what the tools requires. I want to find an affordable Air Compressor that won’t limit my use. This will be for my own garage/shop. I am still a rookie and don’t want to break the bank. I want something that I will use for many years to come.

    My lovely fiance found a set up for me at our local Lowe’s but I am not sure if this is the way to go. Here are the details:

    KOBOLT 60 Gallons Wertical Cast iron Compressor (Lowe’s own brand)
    13.4 SCFM @ 40 PSI
    11.5 SCFM @ 90 PSI
    155 PSI Max
    Single Stage
    3.7 HP
    208-240 Volts / 15 AMPs
    Auto Start/Stop operation
    3 year limited Warranty with option for an extended Warranty
    Was $438
    Now $399 plus a $100 gift card (so really $299)
    Assembled in the USA

    How does this sound to you?
