What Tank Size Air Compressor Should You Buy?

Selecting the correct tank size for an air compressor hinges on your specific needs and the nature of tasks you intend to perform. For light tasks such as inflating tires or powering a brad nailer, a small tank size (1-6 gallons) might suffice. However, for heavier, more continuous tasks such as running impact wrenches or sanders, you should consider a larger tank (20-60 gallons). Remember, a larger tank doesn’t necessarily mean more power, it simply means you can run your tools for a longer period before the motor needs to kick in and refill the tank. Always assess your needs carefully, factor in your budget, and choose a compressor that aligns with the demands of your tasks.
