    Looking at air compressors so we'll be ready this fall.

    Anybody know what kind of CFM (cubic feet a minute I think) they get?

    would 45cfm be enough volume to do it? what do you guys recommend? Right now I got a 10hp compressor that I load into the back of the truck... looking at something similar as well as towbehinds... couldnt find much info on the tow behinds though

    i like 100cfm...they fit nicely in the back of a pick up or van...185 cfms are great in the back of the utility body vehicles...you can blow out 3 zones at a time with the 185 cfm.
