2HP, 3HP Air Compressors, and More from Construction Fasteners and Tools
At Construction Fasteners and Tools, you will find several types of air compressors for sale with different characterizing features, including:
- Electric: The majority of our air compressors are electric, ranging from 0.3 horsepower to 5.5 horsepower - our tank sizes run from one gallon to 60 gallons. Most of our compressors include wheels, and some have a twin stack or vertical design to maximize your workspace. An electric air compressor provides some convenience if you are only working in your shop, but a gas-powered one may be a better choice if you are moving between work sites without any power.
- Gas: We offer a few gas air compressors - they are all portable, 5.5 horsepower and come with either a nine or 10-gallon tank. The advantage of these compressors is that they are for commercial tasks, providing you with enough power to frame buildings, repair vehicles and more. They are also from trusted brands, like Makita and Rolar, some of the best brands in the business.
- Tank size: Our tank sizes, which are in gallons, range from one to 10. The size you should choose depends on your intended usage. We tend to recommend a small- to mid-sized tank if you are only using your tools for short periods of time, such as when you would use a nail gun to set up a frame or secure trim. A hefty 10-gallon tank is best for constant use of your gas or air compressor.
- Horsepower: The horsepower of our stationary and portable air compressors goes from 0.3 to 5.5 HP, which gives you plenty of options when choosing an air compressor that is ideal for your application. Your horsepower will likely scale to your tank size, with compressors with smaller tanks offering a lower horsepower.
We also carry protective safety equipment, like glasses, gloves and ear protection to make your air compressor use as safe as possible.
What Size Air Compressor Do I Need?
The size of your air compressor will depend on a few factors, including:
- Usage patterns
- Power requirements
Think about the following example - you are looking for an air compressor for your shop since you like to work on family cars. If your shop is wired, you can use a stationary electric air compressor, but a portable gas air compressor could offer you more freedom when working on your cars. Next, you have to look at your tools. What are their cubic feet per minute (CFM) and pounds per square inch (PSI) requirements? Add all your tools' CFM at PSI rates together for an accurate estimate.
Compare that rate to our compressors, which advertise their CFM at PSI rate. A higher rate translates to a larger tank. If you have limited space, different tank designs are available that maximize your work area. Some compressors that could meet your shop's needs include portable vertical, wheelbarrow or pontoon air compressors. Every scenario varies when it comes to choosing a compressor, so if you need help, feel free to contact and chat with our team.
