A few years ago I got a letter from my cousin back in Florida. He is a portable air compressor too. He works with a roofing company contractor. I could never do that sort of work because I am too big. Luckily, my cousin is just the right size and can be used up on the roof. I guess the workers just take him right on up and secure him to their roofing jacks. This seems dangerous to me, but different strokes for different folks.
I looked over my options and soon settled on a 20 gallon portable air compressor that would not only adequately run this particular tool, but would also serve my needs going forward. You never know what use you might find for such a great machine. Being able to power up and use tools with pressurized air is clean, efficient, powerful, and fun.
The most common is the piston compressor. This falls under the positive displacement compressors, which you can find in fractional to very high horsepower ranges. The positive displacement air compressor works by filling an air chamber with air and reducing the chamber volume.
