I don't do blow outs so take this comment with that in mind.
When we were doing custom gunite work we had a 500 cfm IR that was truck mounted. We had SE tags and could pull the Ridley gunite rig behind it.
The truck was sweet driving without the rig behind it so we ended up pulling the rig with the scaffold truck. Backing was easier and there was less wear on the drivers.
That said, if i were to winterize i would lean towards a skid mount 185 with a reel attachment for the receiver.
Mounted on a 1 ton p/u would be a sweet setup.
This could work quite well for a 1 man operation. You would store the compressor for the summer, leave the truck loaded during the season.
Just my opinion.
