Thats the one it was. It was regular $399CDN and they only wanted $300 for it.


What do you think? 7CFM @ 40PSI seems fairly decent to me. Most impacts I've seen only need 5.2CFM at 40PSI.

Would this be a good air compressor to get?

Things I may need it for:
Impact
Air Rachet
Sand Blaster

thats pretty much it other then the basic filling tires with air.
You would be ahead to search this forum about compressors before you buy, I think you will be seriously underpowered, especialy for a sand blaster.
