My old hand me down compressor (probably 40+ years old) finally took a crap. Electric motor is shot, it was a small 25 gallon, and had a hard time keeping up with air tools. Looking at something to replace it with in my shop, will run my plasma, air ratchet, impact, ect.

Currently looking at a IR 60 gal for $750, or a Industrial Air 60 gal for $500.

Specs look better on the Industrial Air compressor, but I know IR is a great name and should last me forever.

Anyways, how they break down on paper...

IR
10.3 [email protected]
Max Pressure 135
DB rating 85
3hp motor

Industrial Air
11.5 [email protected]
Max Pressure 155
DB rating 83
3.7hp motor

Thoughts, anything else I should look at in that price range?

All i know is that whenever i finally do upgrade i will be looking into a similar size and style, i bought a 45 gallon Kobalt a few years ago and have had to replace the valves in the compressor head 4 times.
