Compressor specs


Can anyone recommend what specs I should have for a compressor to run a flooring nailer?

I would never be running more than one tool and besides the nailer I would probably just use it for tires and blowing off dust.

The big sign at menards makes it sound like you need a huge one.

Any small pancake style will run it easy.

Thanks that's what I was thinking but the store made it sound like you need a huge one.

Should be 4.5 CFM but if your not doing this super fast it will be fine.
