    I have the 30 Gal version of that.
    It is loud and not the greatest........but I have beat on it for 3-4 years with only one issue.

    The drain valve on the bottom of the tank. It sucks. Replacments are available but I went with a little 1/4 pipe and a 1/4 turn valve from Home Depot.

    Sounds like a good idea. The drain valve is a POS!. I just used the compressor for the first time just right now, to take off the axle bolts on my 14bff. Worked great!!!!

    The impact it came with is decent and so is the air ratchet. But I am waiting for my new Ingersoll Rand air ratchet to come in:)

    I have an IR 232TGSL that is loud as hell also and a Cornwell IR-C7000 that is nice and quiet.

    The 30Gal craftsman compressor does OK trying to keep up with them.

    Hopefully you don't have to keep the compressor in the same room that you work, that oiless puppy is noisy.:crazy: I've got an 80gallon I put outside behind my shop so that way it's quite inside.

    You'll love your new IR gun over the cheesy Craftsman air tools. You'll feel like you have a 454 in your hand and just dumped the Craftsman 4 banger. If you find you are running out of air too fast, you could always add a small secondary tank.
