Air Compressor For Texturing


Like to know if anyone has an idea what a good air compressor or some type of pump to use for texturing. I usually do just a room or two at a time all the way to large additions. 99% of the time it is a knockdown or an orange peel. I just use a air compressor now that don't keep up.Let me know if you have any ideas or need or information. Thank you

What set up are you using now? Texturing doesn't take all that much air. Especially if you're doing a room at a time with a hopper.

This is the best thing going for what you are wanting to do

The pressurization in the hopper is were its at. It takes a constant and consistent air flow which a standard compressor has a tuff time doing.
The hopper may seem a little small but is much better than a half full conventional hopper with poor air.

I’d rather not carry a hopper around. Get a little tiring doing a whole house. Rather just do a hose with a gun if there’s something out there to use

This is the smallest hose fed model I think Graco makes, Id do a search for texture machines and see what you can find. The one I linked above only has 25 ft of hose and you will want at least 50.
Good luck
