Thanks Ron. I basically wanted to know if it would run at least the 1/2 in. drive impact gun and acutally break rusty bolts loose with it instead of running the gun and working properly on NEW stuff. Also, like I said before.....I MIGHT be doing some painting with it with a HVLP gun, or I MIGHT hook it to a sandblast cabinet......only if It would work properly.

If you've got a 20+ gal tank and a 125 psi pressure switch you can run an impact easily enough for SHORT duration. It's the size of the tank you've got and the line coming out of it that counts for the impact, not the size of the pump head.
I agree that you want a better quality gun tho. Something that makes 800 plus ft-lb of torque. For moderate use a newer composite gun will work OK and be fairly cheap.

you won"t break rusty bolts loose with a cheap impact, figure $250 to $400 for a impact strong enough to do that. that compressor will have enough power for most minor things. for real strong power and run time then 2 stage running 175psi and 15scfm or more, like I said big $$$
my hvlp is a stand alone unit so no experience howevever size the gun to your compressor until you realy want a big unit then lay out the big $$$
good luck
Ron

agree there - with those cheap impact guns, you'll find yourself reaching for the breaker bar more often than the impact gun.

Sure it's nice to zip nuts/lug nuts on and off quickly - but if you have to loosen half of them first with a socket wrench anyways... it's kind of pointless.

I think you'll find that unless you're using it constantly - it's hardly worth firing up that noisy compressor, waiting several minutes for the pressure to build, dragging out the air line, oiling your gun if you don't have an oiler, just to take some lug nuts or bolts out "quickly" - followed by noisy draining of the compressor when youre done...

with moisture trap and another regulator you can run an hvlp gun for painting.

A dual action sander or die grinder will run, but you'll have to stop constantly to let the compressor catch up.

forget any kind of sandblasting.

an air wrench would run ok - however - I personally never use one because most bolts I remove are frozen too solidly (see comment on impact wrench) think you'd probably find the same.

So it's usefulness is limited

On the other hand, I think every man needs a compressor and ANYTHING is better than nothing - so that makes the question easier.

You'd most certainly be happier spending a more now larger, quiter, faster one without a doubt. But if that's not in the budget - then so be it.

You need a compressor - you can't be out there filling tires with a bicycle pump.

maintain this one well, you can always sell it in the future when you're ready to move on.

Why would you drain the tank, other than to periodically drain water out? Keeping the tank under pressure prevents condensation from non-use...
