The one thing he said it keeps up with, but barely is his high dollar HVLP gun. So...the amps on the $400-500 compressors are the same, 14-15 amps, and the SCFM is about the same, and they are single stage, but the HP of what I've been looking at is half of what his is. I can't find any that are in his HP realm that aren;t 2 stage and almost 1000 bucks?

I have that same Compressor.. Mine is 15 yrs old.. A DA Sander will give it he** !!! Believe me.. If you try to use it a lot it ''WILL'' start to pump water..
