    Default Air compressor reccomendations

    Good morning. I am wondering what kind of compressor I would need for two F5s and an F8. Some Fridays production is down, so maintenance is doing their thing, and we don't get to use the main compressors. We are wanting to get a compressor to run these 3 machines, and are wanting advice on what we should get.

    Thank you.

    I work in a large forge plant. When production is down, we don't need the capacity to run the full plant, just the 3 machines. The compressors we use to run the entire plant are enormous.(i should have put that info in my initial post)

    You can get away with a little 5 HP unit with a reasonably sized tank (100-120 gallons is probably what I'd go with, but you can likely go down as small as 60). I like Quincy, although I can't say I've used anything they made in the last 25 years so designs may have changed.

    For that matter you can probably just use a Home Depot special if you need a quick solution.

    If you're wanting a really good compressor, look no futher than Kaiser. Buy it once, and done!
