One friend has the small one, another has the dual tank. Every time I hear them kick on I am amazed!
Those things are 'stealth-quiet' compared to a normal oil-less compressor...

Yea, tell me about it. I use a large porter cable oil-less. I forget the size off hand. You cant talk over the noise it makes. When doing my recent basement project I left it in the garage and just ran a few hoses through the garage, across the lawn and down the bilco doors. Friend doing his had his makita right there in the basement.

Advice on purchase of a pancake compressor


FWIW:

These are pics of some framing that was done today on one of our jobs.....using a PC Pancake compressor....just to show that it is fully capable of running a framing gun:





(This is an Apt. complex property maintanence garage that a 'young race car driver' hit. We are re-building the entire front area of the structure...and no, I am not one of the workers in the pictures)
