    Husky air compressor, cast iron, 26 gal, 5 hp, max 135 psi, with oil, four years old, used twice, very clean, for $ 225.00?

    Would this be powerful enough for body work? (grinder and paint gun?)

    Appreciate any input. Thanks.

    I have one of these that works great for air tools and my (cheap) paint guns.

    Husky
    1.7 Running HP, 26-Gallon Air Compressor Kit
    Model WL660999AJ

    Home Depot link won't work right - its a $250 set with a bunch of air tools included.

    It is definitly a good deal, but when using grinders and drills you will be pushing that compressor to its limit sometimes. You may run low on air after a couple of minutes of operation of a grinder or drill, and will have to wait for it to build up pressure again. That compressor will be more than enough for a paint gun.
