the Toro 250 series were the ones that I feared to bleed - the really old ones had urethane diaphragms

The reason why I really like this Atlas is that I know the guy who is selling it.

I know it was garage kept for its entire life outside of doing blowouts.

I like diesel engines.

I like the fact he is throwing the new reel and hose is for the price..

don't let the hose and reel make you pay $2000 more than you could for a diesel tow-behind with twice the air capacity

Just as equipment you buy and sell, that particular truckmount compressor will be a lot harder to re-sell than a tow-behind

Next year boots when I get enough scratch for my utility body, I'll be a very happy Joe backing right up drives..Thinking to myself, "boy wet boots was wrong"..

I love truck mounts brotha.. Best way to haul a compressor..And worth the CFM loss.

if your current client list has systems supplied by inch-and-a-half water meters and their well-water equivalents, you can certainly use the 90 cfm machine. If that list, however, is of sub-acre properties fed from 5/8-inch meters, then even a really-dinky truckmount like I once used will completely clear the water from them.
