For the people who want a more powerful model, there is Westward 4B220 portable air compressor. This machine uses a powerful Briggs engine. Its powered by a powerful 5.5 HP motor. The machine uses a 2 cylinder pump made of cast iron. It has a horizontally placed tank which has a rated capacity of 20 gallons. It uses a four cycle aluminum block engine. The machine has 21 oz engine oil capacity and 12 oz of compressor pump oil. The machine uses a time tested reliable type H tank which makes it one of the longest performing and most reliable machines that you can buy.
An important factor is also the factor of oil. The oil is used for lubrication of moving parts of the compressor, but it also has some side effects. For example, traces of oil can be found in the tubes that deliver air to your airbrush tool, so it can be mixed with paint. This problem is more pronounced if the compressor is older. One possible solution is to purchase an oil free air compressor.
