Got some good input to think about. My next question is; Anybody have any expierence with Coleman air compressors? Only reason I'm asking is that's the only brand sold in our little town. I like to buy local when ever possible but I'm not stuck to that

I have a roofing company, and of all of the compressors I have ever used, the Coleman was the best. The pancake one to be specific. It has the fewest start up amps, of all of the other aircompressors. others are 12-15 amps and start up for them is x3, so your looking at 45 amps to start them, the Coleman is about 9, x3 is 27amps, that is few enough to run just about any outlet.
Colemen quit making them for awhile, so we had to go and buy all different ones, but now they are back. I can't wait for our compressors to break !!!!!

Most everybody I talk to loves theirs, but there are some bad ones out there also, but thats with anything I guess.

I got several Coleman air compressors, all built into my lanterns and camp stove...and they work fine!

Sorry, Jim, I couldn't resist that.

I agree with you about buying local. Only Coleman products I own are lanterns, stoves, heaters, and coolers. I happen to like every one of their products that I own (I've had most for many years), but I don't have any experience with their compressors. I'd be willing to give one a try, though, if I was in the market for a new one.

I have a late 60's vintage 2 mantle Coleman lantern that was in storage for over 20 years. After oiling the leather thingy on the plunger it fired right up. Didn't even change the mantles.
