So I just picked this up.....

...from Tractor Supply. I've been looking at compressors for over a year and reading reviews until my eyes crossed. I was leaning towards an Ingersoll Rand but the reviews were not as good as this Dewalt. The Dewalt was 4.6 out of 5 stars with 650ish reviews. On sale for $529 here in my neck of NC. so I think its a decent deal. Anyway, hooking it up next week and going to try it out on a small sandblasting project.

Is that 5 hp? I bought the 5hp 60 gallon compressor at Tractor supply years ago. Looks similar to yours. It works great for all that I need it for. Sandblasting included.

Two stage or single stage?

Tighten it till it strips and back it off a quarter turn.

Good compressor when the motor burns up replace it with a 5hp and it will last a long long time.

Re: So I just picked this up.....

I have another brand 60 gallon, which is similar in specs to yours, and it's still going strong over twenty years in. Just drain it after using it, keep clean oil in it, and let it rip. One thing about blasting with these though. As big as it is, mine can't keep up with my Scat-Blast cabinet for more than a few minutes. Pay attention to the duty cycle of it if you blast with it and don't over run it. I plumbed a ball valve under mine to drain it, and left it on the skid.

Re: So I just picked this up.....

That will keep up with most of your needs not sure about sand blasting to long straight tho.
I bought one of there 80 gal Ingersoll compressors about 8 years ago for 999.00. It has been a great compressor but will only keep up with my speed blaster when it comes to sand blasting.

Re: So I just picked this up.....

I only do die grinding, not sand blasting, but I easily outrun my 30 gal Craftsman. Let us know how this does. Good purchase!
