I found a gas powered one near me, 8hp and 17 gallon tank with 16cfm. Would this work for me? Or do you have any recommendations?
Thank you, Connor
Hey Connor. That's awesome that your family supports you. The one you found for rent should work just fine. The more CFM the better. You don't want the gun spiking or dropping pressure on you. Investing in a pre gun regulator/ water separator would be a smart move too.

Make sure you document your progress and ask any questions you have.
