    Figured I would ask before I start closing them down this week. Just bought a gas rol-air over the summer. We did a lot of irrigation repair and start ups just haven't did any shut downs. Seems pretty simple. Just don't want to really damage anything and want to make sure I'm prepared with the right tools, etc. Thanks

    does it run of the trucks cigarette lighter?

    If it was 10 times that much , it would be considered a small one.

    Get a lawn chair and a good book. Most of us use compressors rated from 80 to 185 CFM. We could winterize a system and be down the road before you even get to chapter one.
