I got a 40 cu.ft. nitrogen cylinder with regulator....265.00....I use it for working on chainsaws and weedeaters etc. out in the field where electricity is not available. I like it because it is small and tough. costs 12.00 to refill. Lasts me a long time. If you let everybody at the track use it it won't last long.

If this is for your house what you want to look for is the highest CFM and Gallons you can afford. And one with a motor that belt drives a oil filled pump, vs the direct drive air cooled cheapo. If you go that route you will have one that will last forever and fit ANY needs you have. CFM and capacity is what you want if you are just passing air through a hose. PSI means little. I bought a little 2 gallon job from wally world to take to the track and it will not keep up with the air flow required to clean a nitro well. It's OK at best, but my home compressor with 16cfm and 30gallons is simply awesome.

I use this same compresser. It's great and the wheels make it nice at the track. It runs out of air fast but it recovers faster than most. Great little compresser.
