Compressor?

What is a decent size compressor to start out with, doing only about 4-8 zones per house. I rented a 6.5hp gas honda and that seemed to work fine. Would that be adeuqute for these style 4-6 zones with 3-4 heads on each zone?

I would like a tow behind but I would like to wait until I get atleast 100 until I get a towbehind unit (which at this rate should be next year).

It just might, but I bet it takes some time. It's volume (cubic feet per minute)
your looking for, not pressure. I'd be looking to buy a 125CFM with adjustable
psi. Ours blows everything from tinys to systems with 4" mains.
