Need an air compressor

I need an air compressor that is light enough and small enough to easily load in the Georgetown yet powerful enough to put 90 or 95 PSI in mt tires.

Anybody have a suggestion?

Bill

We bought one at Lowe's for about $100 that is 125 psi and about a 2 gallon tank. Came with a nice little accessory pack as well. I can't remember the name but it has the word Hawk in it.

This isn't cheap but real nice and small. Works great.

We have a Porter Cable 3 gallon that is pretty compact. We bought the accessories at Harbor Freight. Good luck.

Try this on: Amazon.com: PORTER-CABLE CMB15 150 PSI 1.5 Gallon Oil-Free Fully Shrouded Compressor: Home Improvement

Hope that helps. Works really well with my fifth wheel tires which require 110psi

X2 on this one - it works great and fits in the compartments nicely.

Thanks for the inputs.

I think I will go with the Porter Cable. I really liked the VIAIR unit for its weight and size but the Porter cable is half the price, although twice the weight.

Thanks again. This forum is the greatest.

Get a POWER PAK. Amazon.com has a wide selection. with a Power Pak, you will have these options:

Air Compressor
Jumper Cables to jump your battery
Inverter Plug ins that can take up to 500 watts
12 volt outlet for whatever

I used to have the one from Costco, and used it for years. It was the green one. It was heavy, weighted about 40 pounds. After awhile, the air compressor went poof, but then I bought a small air compressor and plugged it into the 12 volt outlet on the Costco Power Pak and that worked. Then after about ten years, the entire thing went poof. Costco no longer sells this model (BOO HOO, it was a good one!).

I got one off Amazon.com. I have a Black and Decker model. Love it, as the air compressor is just "screw on" as opposed to the thumb latch, so much easier! However, the jumper cables, well, they wouldn't "open" wide enough to attach to a battery. Oh well, I have another jumper cable, I just daisy chained (although you aren't supposed to do that....) and it worked......

But get a POWER PAK.

I bought a 6 gal porter cable 2.6 cfm @ home depot for $150, it weighs about 25 lbs, it's oil free. It doesn't take up a lot of storage area as it has a round tank with a small footprint.
