I use the compressor for cleaning out my radiators, airing up tires, running impact wrench to change teeth, and running other tools like a cutoff saw, ratchet, and a few times where I needed a small chisel.

Now that I'm thinking, if I had it to do over, I'd just figure out how to mount the 12 volt and keep it out of the weather. One option is inside a toolbox or under it. I have heard about compressors that fit under the hood and are powered off the motor.
There are winch setups that I've seen that have a small compressor built in. It probably won't run an impact wrench but it would air up tires or blow out a radiator somewhat.
