I have a 20# Co2 tank with a regulator and 10' hose, I can air up about 200 mower tires before I need a $10 refill and the plus side is that I can run a impact wrench in the middle of BFE if I need to

If you have a decent tank that dosn't leak it should hold pressure for a long time. Mine will hold 100 lbs all winter sitting in the garage. if it leaked even the slightest bit it would be empty in a few days... My tank came fron a neghibor, someone told him that after 5 years or so he should get a new one cause they could rust inside and explode. I think the guy that sold him a new one told him that... Iv'e used it ever since and if I run the presure down in it I promptly re-fill it when I get home. Never sees a day without air pressure in it (usually 120 lbs) and it hasn't exploded yet... lol.

Just remember, all that air in there can be heavy, so make sure you have it where you want it before you put 120 pounds in it! :alien:
