Question 60 gallon air compressors

Does anyone know anything about air compressors because I want to purchase one. I went to Sears today and saw one for $427 and one for $590. Both the same size. The difference is 2 stage compressor on the expensive one. Any preferences or tip on which to buy? This information would be useful since this compressor might be used for suspension upgrades, exhaust, pulleys, etc.....AKautogear.com

Apparently, the construction business likes Ingersoll-Rand compressors.

Looks as though they make something that you might be looking for:

Thumbs up

I am looking for opinions on stuff because any salesman on this stuff can fill me with BS. I like PorterCable, Craftsman, and the overprice SnapOn. IngersolRand is sold at Sam's Club I think for $799. I guess you can almost say I am shopping for a snowmachine. What should I get? Long track, short track, trail riding, highmarking, etc.

I gonna have to go with Sir Wally. Ingersoll-Rand is pretty good, but a little overkill. You might want to check out Grainger. They carry Ingersoll-Rand (premium), Speedaire (good quality), the rest of them I have no experience with and they look to be more bargain then quality. Also you might want to check with them about discounts, based on where you work and how much they use grainger. For example, Phillips and contractor employees get a good discount because we deal almost exclusively with grainger.

Go with the Craftsman dual stage oil free one, but join the craftsman club, that will save you 10% off of the price. One week every month it's craftsman club week and you can get some pretty good deals on tools that week, they send you out a flier to let you know what's for sale. The great thing about Sears is if you ever have a problem with the product, regardless if it's warranty has expired, just go into the store and make a big scene they'll give you what ever you want just to shut you up.

Theres about a $175 price difference on the dual stage and the reg one. Is the oil free better? Dual stage?

KappaFool,
Dual stage same as 2 stage. I persoanlly would spend the extra money. You could also look for ones that have been returned to sears for whatever reason, you can usually get one heck of a deal on those. The same warranty applies, and as always the make a scene get what you want rule applies at sears. I personally got a steal on a 175 PSI 25 gallon dual stage on from sears I paid $340 for it. I imagine that is the same one your quoting for $590, I found it on sale this summer and then added my 10% discount. Sam's also has a decent air tool kit for $70 considering all that you get it's a good price.

Sam's does have some good looking kits, and usually at a great deal. If you don't have a membership, and want to go check out what they have, let me know and I can take you.

The Sears outlet mall (what's left of it) always had SCREAMING deals on powertools -- I got a bunch of stuff there for fantastic prices. Worth checking out.

Corner of Dowling and OSH. It's the Sears Bedding building. They actually stopped storing the damaged/refurbed goods there, and are now just using if for furniture/bedding, but I believe the repair department and rebuilt/refurbed parts department is still there. Worth checking out.

Cool

I think I will wait for a better time to buy a compressor because our new shop is turning into a storage depot and running out of space. I asked some coworkers about some air compressors and they said get the 2 stage ones because you won't run out of usable air as fast.
