Advice on air compressor please and thanks!

We rarely do wints in my area, but are traveling up north and they are pretty mandatory so I need to purchase a gas compressor, does this description seem correct? We had one to plug into our generator but it magically fell off the truck 6 months ago and I can't remember the specifics of it. Thanks so much! Description below

Sounds fine. I have 2 Titan gas compressors i picked up out of pawn shops over the years. They work great. Harbor Freight has a gas compressor for about the price you quoted.....

This works good and it won't fall off the back of the trailer. You can rent out also when you are not using.

I'm guessing boilers with the old cast iron radiators. Gotta get the lines cleared in under 2 minutes.....Whats the CFM on something like that?

I have a Rolair and a Hitachi wheel barrow compressor. The Rolair is much quieter but stands really tall and is a lot heavier. The Hitachi is noisey, light and has been in the shop 3 times in the last 16 months.

Keep in mind I use mine for roofing too, not just wintz.

My biggest reccomendation is to get something with a good engine on it. I tend to only buy Honda powered equipment.

we run the titans ( bright yellow) with the honda motors my newest was purchased from a yard sale person bought it never fired it up had it for 4 years in its shipping packaging 400 another tip put your lines on hose reels and only use rubber lines the plastic air line when cold are a PITA and always blow out your drain lines between stops they freeze up in the back of the truck
