I agree with Red take it from experience get a 220 V 2 stage unit. I have a 7 hp. 2 stage, 80 gallon tank, which I got from Sears, paid $1100.00 4 years ago, found identical unit, just a different color at a Lowe's for about $800.00 a few days later after the fact, so shop around, the unit I have does the job, but under heavy use condensation gets to be a problem, be sure you have water traps and a way to drain frequently. As for Harbor freight be careful, the quality of most tools they sell is just not there, I have a cheap pressure blaster and the valves on it cut out from the abrasive quite fast. I did change the nozzle got a heavy duty one fairly cheap at a head stone dealer, where they blast the marble monuments--kinda weird huh but it gets the job done!
