Might be interesting to see what a real compressor outfit rates those things for CFM.

That's the same compressor but with a more believable 15.5 CFM@90 PSI and even that's being generous! When IR had to do some back -up on that ridiculous 18+ CFM rating some places like Tractor Supply, etc still use the inflated figure.
