BatorBite and SharkBite

I am getting ready to plumb my two car garage with a Sear 80 ballon 5 hp air compressor which is rated at 175 max psi. I have looked around for systems that will allow me to do this, however I do not agree with paying the outragouse prices they ask for. I was at Lowes and Home Depot yesterday and saw copper fittings that are designed for water at both stores that only require the copper pipe to be pushed in. The one that Lowes carries is GatorBite and Home Depot carries SharkBite. I could not find any specs for GatorBite but I did find spec info for SharkBite through Home Depot's web site. The SharkBite fittings are rated at 200 psi. My question to you gearheads is could i use SharkBite fittings to plumb my set up with 3/4 copper piping or has anybody ever used this set up?
