I'm using a Campbell Hausfeld 5 "peak" hp 20 gal 110v 15amp compressor. It will run my harbor freight cutoff wheel but not continuously. IMO 110V compressors are just toys good for airing up tires and thats about it. My compressor is almost 7cfm at 90psi IIRC.

It is hard or impossible to get a good compressor on 110V. Of course this is just my opinion. They will get your job done but will take some time and will slow you down quite a bit. If you aren't ever pressed for time and are patient then i am sure it will work just fine for you.

I am putting together my own air compressor. 80 gal horizontal tank, 705 Saylor Beall pump 17.1 CFM, load genie continuous run unloader, and 11hp Honda gas engine. I am in a situation just like you. No access to 220v for a compressor. I suspect this will work for me very well.
