Can anyone recommend a decent air compressor for light/medium duty use? I've had those portable black and decker air compressors/ utility battery jumpers, but they always go bad on me within a couple years of light use. I'm primarily using this to pump tires for my bikes and cars. Any brands and models to look at? Craftsman @ sears, Husky @ homedepot?

There is also that white on tuscan brown mt s5 with 20k miles for 43k carmax indy
I really want to get my hands on an 1m. I saw this car with less than 1k miles.

I might just do a lease take over on something with less than 6 months, drive that over the winter while looking for a car and keep mine up for sale. If I find a 1m, I will move on it. If not, reassess what I want in the spring. Maybe I will have a change of heart.

I need to unload mine before I will look at private sellers. Sales tax trade in value is over $4k. And I want white or orange.

Most of them are white and orange so that should not be a problem

Yeah ive heard those work fairly well even when put up to heavy use. But I want to try something more powerful.


Anyone have experience with one of these guys? Oiled or oil-less? Any recommendations in terms of performance, reliability, and low maintenance?

I suppose, but the main reason why I'm looking to upgrade is due to going through four $45 portable air compressors in the past five years. Hoping to find a more reliable, permanent solution. And if it can pump air quicker, that's a plus.
