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

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.

Hey Blondie...That is not a bad price on the one you posted...Even Harbor Frieghts one sell for around 6-700.
But the one you listed will cover all the req's for the service....

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

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?



375, says right on it. :lol: :lol:




I used a 185 once when I had it rented for blowing out sprinkler lines.
Turn the PSI down to 30 and get all over it, trailer house lines blown in mere moments. :thumbup:

re

why do you want gas?

Id rather have an electric and a generator because then when the houses have electricity I don't need to run 100' of hose.

I do a couple hundred wints a year and I use a $125 bostich 2gal. I think its 4cubic ft at 40psi/min. Then I have a 1600watt generator for when there is no power. Total cost of the setup was like $300 and generally lasts about 5 years before replacing (or until I drop it enough that it stops working).

We have had the discussion over and over here with people claming that you cant do a wint with less then 14 cu ft/min, but I've never once had to do a freeze repair because of a failed wint so.

A gas 9 or 12 cfm is faster.

And you can't deny it.



Your set up is the last thing I'd want, but if it works for you go for it.

I have a 2 gallon I use for my framing nailer. I have tried to do wints with it a few times and it takes literally FOREVER!! My 12cfm gas will charge an entire house in 3-4 minutes. The twin tank takes better than 10 minutes......
