I bought a PorterCable 3 gallon unit from Home Depot. Pumps to 150 psi. Works great for me for tires and small jobs. My tires run 110 psi.


Not running 100psi but that's what we have and seems to do fine.

I used a 6 gallon 150PSI and it took a while (not forever but a while)
I recommend at least a 150 PSI 120 volt.. 12 volt jobs that can get there exist but SLOW


Home was where I park it. but alas the.

Sorry this isn't very helpful but why does it have to be "quickly"? Surely you never have to add more than a few lbs. right? I have a 150 psi cheapy portable from Lowes, I use 120 psi in steer & 90 in drive & tag. If I ever have to add it only takes a minute or two per tire. I would keep it as compact as possible to save basement space & just be a little more patient but that's just me. Is it possible your current unit isn't working properly?

Well Fifth,

The first mistake is looking at the tank size. The tank is the cheapest part and is of little value in your case.

As soon as you look at any air compressor, look at the specifications. The first part to look at is "CFM at 100Psi". This is the money shot right there. In simple terms, 1Hp should get 5CFM at 100 PSI. If you plan to run it off 12VDC, 1Hp is about 60Amps so you better be real ready for that.
