gas power compressors
Iam just getting in to painting cars , i am looking at a HILTI EMGLO gas powered air compressor rated at 20 cfm with a 30 gal tank, 11 hp honda motor. will this get the job done.
That should do it.
Even if you use a 15 CFM @ 30 PSI spray gun you should have plenty of air and pressure to get the job done.
gas powered compressors
yeah: thanks len just worried about constant pressure and flucations. I don't want to be in the middle of making a pass and have it start spitting and sputtering. and what about it overheating while doing the body work?
Most gas powered compressors are built so that the motor runs all the time and the pump comes on and goes off as needed. If it's a decent unit you should have no problems running it all day long as long as the noise won't be a problem.
