    Just picked up a 30 cfm lindsey mounted on a factory trailer , very little use on it , 13 horse Kohler electric start with a new battery . Bought it from a apartment complex . They used it 4 times . Its smaller than I am use to , but for $ 600.00 I will pay for it before noon the first day I use it next year. I love craigs list .

    Dweeb compressor, our 125 will be in & out before you get zone 1 blown.

    Makes a pretty good backup unit, and for one-zone-at-a-time residential work, it's plenty. 30 cfm is very good for a 13 HP engine.

    ....and how many amps does this remote supply, if it's going to fire a dozen or so zones at once?

    I can efficiently fire off four zones at once without losing track of what's running (the Rain Master remote will do more). Don't know the amp's.

    i'm a fan and a user of a 185. run as many zones as possible. but the little truck mounts will do fine in most situations.

    Yup , the 125 is faster , I also have a 125 diesel Ir and a 90 gas lindsey . But when I throw this smaller compressor in the back of the toyota truck with the electric hose reel it will be a quick little unit for my small residentials . The time saved by not backing up a compressor , the gas mileage of the toyota vs a full size van , will negate the speed of the tow behinds I have .
