Oil lubricated direct drive pump is quieter than oil-free compressors

Motor with copper wiring, rust-resistant powder coat finish
Max. motor output: 1200W (40W)

Compressor to run roofing nailer.

that compressor should work fine. Air nailers don't suck up near as much air as continuous running tools like grinders.
