I need a big compressor I have a guy here at my place that is going to redo the black 77 we have.
For sanding with a DA sander, spraying and possibly sand blasting what should I consider?
I want 80 gallons but they are about $1100-$1200 with 5hp motors and $1900 ish with 7.5hp.
Should I step up to the 2k range or is the 5hp still plenty? Also who has the best value so far
I seem to see the best price at Tractor supply.
Shown is the truck we are starting with. Lots of rust repair etc being done.

Thanks PG

Way back when, I had a  30 gal. Devilbiss compressor w/ a 2 hp. motor.  It did all the spraying I needed and quite a  lot of the sandblasting.  I don't remember what cfm the compressor was.

Might check Harbor Fright or Northern Tool to see if either has affordable alternatives.

The air tools like the DA sander takes a ton of air we have a 30 gallon now and it can't keep up with the sanding
so we need bigger for sure. Thanks PG
