Hi I need to get a compressor and I also want to makje sure it is strong enough. I found a craftsman 33 gallon 150psi with 8.6/6.7 @ 40/90 psi. I was wondering if this will be strong enough to use tools like impact gun, grinder, air cut off tool, etc. And I also need to use a spray gun which I think take 7.0 cfm @ 40psi. I just dont want to run out of air so I was wondering If this air compressor will work. Thank you anyone who helps me out

just look at the compressor specs and look at the tools your wanting to use specs, if the compressor capacity meets or exceeds the tool specs then your all good. That compressor will run most anything you want it depending on how long you want to run it. Your sanders, drills, and things like that require alot of air if your going to use them constantly. All the stuff you listed you should be fine on.

You Craftsman compressor should run most everything for a home workshop. What's nice about Craftsman is that although you may pay a bit more up front, you can easily get repacement parts for it which will save you $$ in the long run.
