Q:What size generator would I need to use to run this compressor?
by|Jan 6, 2020
3 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  It's only a 110/115V compressor, so I wouldn't think you would need a big generator to run it, unless you are cycling it on/off all the time.

by|Jan 11, 2020

A:  The compressor uses 10 amps So you would need a generator that can produce that

by|Jan 12, 2020

A:  Compare the output amperage of the generator to the amperage needed to operate the compressor if the are the same or the generator puts out more than the compressor needs then you are good to go

    Q:What different between SCFM
    by|Jan 6, 2020

    Answer This Question

    A:  Cubic feet per minute is the amount of air a tool needs to perform at its best. Each tool has its own rating so you can compare it to the cfm of the compressor

    by|Mar 6, 2020

      A:  CFM = Cubic Feet per Minute ... the amount of "air" the compressor motor will pump to refill the tank when you use compressed air .... bigger number = better air supply capacity , the tank can fill back up with air faster to keep you working .... MOST tools will work with a pancake compressor , but tools that "spew air" like blow guns and spray painting or texturing with a hopper will discharge a lot of air pretty quickly .... nails guns just "pop pop pop" small bursts of air , Texture hoppers and blow guns are constantly discharging air and run the tank down much faster .... you have to decide how "heavy" you want a compressor vs how much "CFM" you want ..... small compressor = smaller job , but they are lighter to carry and work quite well on many applications

      A:  You can always oil the tool itself by putting a few drops of air tool oil into the inlet where the air line connects to the tool

        A:  The compressor is unable to damage a tool. The output of the compressor is all you need to be concerned with

        Q:Will intermediate use of a 4 CFM air drill negatively effect this compressor?

        Answer This Question

        A:  Yes I think it will do fine I use mine with a 1/2 “ impact to remove wheels on my camper and it works great the pressure will build back up quickly

        by|Dec 31, 2019

        A:  The output of the compressor is 2.6 SCFM @ 90 psi and 3.7 SCFM @ 40 psi. I am guessing this compressor will not meet both the required CFM and psi to operate your drill as expected by the drill manufacturer.

        by|Dec 30, 2019

        A:  This compressor isn’t really the best choice for use with an air drill. I would recommend a much larger compressor. Or use a corded drill.

        by|Dec 30, 2019

        A:  It should work fine for that situation

          Answer This Question

          A:  165 psi max. Output of 2.6 SCFM @ 90 psi and 3.7 SCFM @ 40 psi.

          by|Dec 30, 2019

          A:  135

          by|Dec 17, 2019

            A:  165 psi

            by|Dec 18, 2019

              A:  150

              by|Dec 17, 2019

                A:  The max is 165 psi. I usually use mine around 135, since it takes longer to get up to that extra 30 psi.

                Q:CAN THIS ALSO BE USED WITH A PAINT SPRAYER ATTACHMENT?

                Answer This Question

                A:  You have to make sure the required pressure (psi) and flow (scfm) of the paint gun match the compressor. Some paint guns will work, but a lot will not work.

                by|Dec 13, 2019

                A:  I use it to paint depending on the amount of air you use you might have to wait for the pressure to build back up then continue to paint

                by|Mar 6, 2020

                  A:  Yes it will I use mine to paint it won’t keep up with continuous use but if you wait a wile for the pressure to build up it’s ready to go again adjust the regulator for the pressure you need to paint

                  by|Dec 31, 2019

                  A:  For a small project. But for painting a large room or house I don’t think it would keep up.

                  A:  Yes as it is not continuous.

                  by|Nov 28, 2019

                  A:  I am sure it will work but you may have to wait for pressure to build back up depending on How fast you nail

                  by|Mar 6, 2020

                    A:  Yes

                    by|Dec 18, 2019

                      A:  The compressor output is 2.6 CFM @ 90 psi. You need to make sure the framing gun you are thinking about can operate at this flow. Not sure one exists. Looking at the online manual, DeWALT framing gun models starting DWF83 require 6.1 CFM @ 80 psi. I would not use these models with the pancake compressor.

                      Answer This Question

                      A:  You need to check CFM of your sprayer. The pancake puts out 2.5 to 3.7 CFM.

                      A:  Looking at the Dewalt website, the compressor output is 3.7 SCFM @ 40 psi. Make sure the paint sprayer can operate at this airflow and pressure. I saw at least one sprayer on-line that would work. Depends on what size job you plan on tackling.

                      by|Nov 25, 2019

                        A:  Probably not the kind you are thinking of. According to what I've been told, it can be used to do small canister painting using the sprayers that run off of air pumps. But you need a pump/sprayer system to do things like paint your house.

                        A:  Yes it can run a Paint Can type sprayer or HVLP, The airless type is its own type and no compressor is needed. The pressure on this compressor is up to 165 psi.

                        A:  It will work with an air impact wrench, however, the job will go much faster with a bigger compressor.

                        A:  The output of the compressor is 2.6 SCFM @ 90 psi. You need to find a pneumatic wrench that can operate at this flow.
