I use a vintage (2006) Crafstman 150PSI pancake (6gallon) 120 volt which I now have here in my apartment. Very useful device .
Though it takes more than one 6 gallon tank it could put my 22.5's up to 115 no problem.... Blow out air lines to winterize,, Spray paint,, Power the side cutter to cut a bent to .... and gone bracket so I could remove and replace. Hammer lug nuts off and on and more (Yes I have a few...er.. Accessories) The tankless jobs can only inflate tires and the like they don't do all the other stuff.


Home is where I park it.

the senco and the husky are both 135psi
I only need 80psi for my tires,
I don't have any air tools,
On occasion I have wanted an air impact wrench (recent purchase 120v electric impact wrench) or jack
Yeah an air driven hydraulic frame/bottle jack for lifting the chassis would be handy, But space is always at a premium, the reason I bought the Tsunami back when I was driving a 31ft gasser, before the DP that was before this 36ft Bounder Ford gasser
Reality is I don't need 6gal and 150psi capacity,
Sure it will inflate tires 3x faster, but that is not a must have factor, it would have been nice when I owned the DP with 22.5" tires, but I avoided DIY on those and the large heavy brake and driveline parts,
The current 10 lug 16" wheels and brakes on this F53, are strenuous enough for this skinny 122#, 72yr boomer,

Mr Wizard,

My 110 psi 1 gallon takes "forever" to get to 80 psi. I'd love to replace it with a 150 or a 135.

The darn thing won't break! GGRRRRRR

If you have Dewalt battery operated tools and already have the batteries and charger, you might want to look at Dewalt's portable compressor-

Dewalt Inflator

It can run on its battery, the included 12 volt cord, or an optional 120 volt cord. I've used mine to inflate to 80 psi. It's not fast, but not terribly slow either, and with the battery, you don't have to drag out cords.

I just bought a rigid air compressor that uses the rigid batteries. Is it a perfect solution, no... but it has a 120 psi capability, and one battery charge increased tire pressure from 40 lbs to 60 lbs on all four trailer tires. Package is TINY, and I keep the battery charger plugged into truck's 120V system

I recently bought a viair model 88P to carry in my truck. It's 120 psi and 20 amps. It has an 8' cord and 16' of hose. Craig

I switched to this model from Home Depot as its light, pretty quiet and smaller than what I had before.

I was at home depot this evening

The RYOBI 1 gal 18v one+, one plus battery system, $99, wt 14#
Husky 1 gal 120v 135psi $99 weight27#
I brought home the Husky, I cleared some storage space for it, and tomorrow I will test it

As air compressors go, this Husky is really quiet, if you have use of a quiet Trim tool size air compressor I can recommend this one, for that low noise quality
Twin piston single stage compressor, at 27 pounds it Is a little heavier than I wanted, but comparable to other 1 gallon air compressors, the Ryobi cordless 1 gallon was only 14 pound's without the battery, but I was concerned that maybe the battery ( used with my Ryobi cordless Drill ) would not be at full charge at the moment I needed the compressor, and decided 120v corded was a better choice, since I could use shore, generator, or inverter power !
