I would suggest you do a search on compressors, this has been discussed in depth almost to the point of overdoing it. There is no such thing as an 80 gal or 120 gal or any GALLON compressor, a big tank WILL NOT help in the least in keeping up with your tools. Look at the CFM rating as that is what counts and although a lot of people simply won't believe it a big tank does not make a big compressor. It sounds as if you are about to spend a lot of money so I would suggest you educate yourself on compressed air before you do and spend wisely. Remember a good compressor will be a balanced set-up of HP to compressor displacement to storage tank size. Bigger is not always better and you are putting far to much emphasis on tank size and almost overlooking what really matters.
