    Air Compressor Recommendations

    Can anyone recommend a fairly good air compressor that's not too expensive or makes that I should steer clear of. I want it for all round use, ie. impact wrench, spray gun etc.

    Thanks

    SIP are normally pretty good.

    At home I've a generic cheap'n'cheerful I got for less than a hundred quid - it's only a 20litre tank, but it has a 2hp motor so it recharges in about 30 seconds. It's some wierd Italian make.

    80 litre is bare minimum for spraying in my experience.

    I wouldn't use it for spraying a whole car, just odd panels. Would you still say an 80l tank as a minimum?
