1.Tank Size2.Power ratingNow what does all this mean? How does that help me pick the best compressor product for myhome use?Tank site, the longer you need to use the system the bigger the tank should be on thecompressor. Using the tools in small burst you won’t need such a big tank. For example, for anail gun you don’t typically hold the trigger and just move it. You need to position it on the rightspot and pull the trigger. Then move it and pull the trigger again. These are short burst of air anda larger tank is not needed to accomplish the job. Now on the other hand you have a cutter or sander the last thing you want to do is to have to keep stopping to let you air tank catch up toyou. A large tank is what is needed for this job. I think you get the point if you need it on all thetime get the larger tank! Typically, the larger tanks are the industrial products and are notportable.Next, understanding power rating, don’t make the mistake of measuring by PSI or Horsepower.CFM (cubic feed per minute) is the important number!
