Best 110 Volt compressor?

Given the limitation of 110 volt service, what is the best compressor and best deal? Something that would produce 10 CFM at 90 would be nice.

110 V compressor

Lots of luck. Looking at my Northern tool catalog, the most output it shows from a 120 V compressor is 6 CFM at 90 PSI, and I'll bet that it needs a 30 Amp circuit to do that. It says dual voltage motor, which means that you would be well advised to find 220 somewhere for it. I rigged a 250 ft extension cord using 12-2 with ground romex, (the kind of wire you install in a house wiring system), and a 30 A outlet and plug, in a plastic box. I plugged it into a plug that was meant for an electric dryer. The romex is rated for 600 V, and the plug and outlet were for a 220 V air conditioner.

Agreed. If you bite the bullet and go with a 220 you can get a nice compressor for decent money. I paid $430 for a compressor at Tractor Supply Company that will do what you want. It is rated for any air tools out there.
