Iam looking to buy a new pancake comp. Most guys I work with have the Bostitch . They love it. What do you think? I had a PC. This will be mostly for trim.:thumbsup:
I have a oil free that runs at 62db (quieter than a conversation) and it has aluminum tanks so it's lighter and no worry of rust. Oil compressors are only good indoors or in warm climates.most of the pancakes are oil-free and noisy - I can't stand them. Get a decent oil-lubed quieter compressor.
Most pancake compressors are junk. The motors are too small. I am usually not a fan of Bostitch but this little guy is a rock star!
A lot of guys have it backwards and think a bigger tank and smaller motor is the way to go. In fact for a trim nailer a smaller tank and bigger motor is the right set up. I even run my framing nailer with this little bugger. I have had it for a year and its still running strong, no issues.:thumbsup:
