    Basic needs would be anything bigger then a 20 gallon. The smaller the ac the longer it takes.

    Compressor size is measured in CFM ( cubic feet per minute) The minimum I would recommend is 40 CFM . Tow behind units are the best for this application. Others may recommend smaller units , but its like digging a hole , you can dig a hole with a shovel , or you can dig a hole with a backhoe , at the end of the day which will do more work.
