110 volt compressor use

Ok here's the deal, I am maxed out on my panel and because of insurance I need to pull a permit and get a licensed electrician in to add a sub panel on order to use a 220 v compressor. Very expensive.

I have searched the site and see that the Ingersal Garage Mate has a rated 5.5 scfm @ 90lbs (the 20 gallon model). My cut off tool says it needs 5 scfm @ 90lbs. On paper this leaves with a 10% margin of error. I do not intend to paint or use more scfm than the cut off tool.

I am looking for input from someone who has the 20 gallon IR Garage Mate and how it has performed with their air tool use. I do not want to make this purchase based upon paper performance, but would rather hear from a user.

In addition if there is a 110 volt compressor that delivers more scfm I would love to hear about it.

Thanks in advance,
