I'm having problems running my 71 Piece Air tool set with my air compressor?

Question:

Hello,
I purchased the Alltrade 481030 71 Piece Air Tool Set and have had problems running the tools with my air compressor. I'm sure my compressor is too small but I was wondering if you can tell me the specifications needed to run these tools. Basically looking for SCFM, horsepower needed, etc....
Thanks,
Jason

Answer:

Hello Jason,
These tools will require more CFM than small compressors can produce. First, a compressor needs to run on a dedicated circuit and second, you'll need a compressor that produces at least 5CFM on a 2.5 or 3HP unit with a tank of about 25 to 30 gallon capacity.

Thanks for asking,

Carl
