That's the one. Mine kicks on at 110 psi & runs to 140 psi where it shuts off at. Takes 52 seconds to run an 80 gal tank from 110-140 psi, one day I will bleed it all the way down & see what it takes from 0-140 but never measured it during the initial fill & read where it wasn't good to drain tanks often so haven't let it get empty since. Remember to budget in for hardline piping such as copper, galvanized or black pipe, NEVER PVC!!! If you just plug a hose directly into the compressor you will have water coming out of the hose everytime you use it. This seems have been a bigger problem with my compressor before doing the hardline than it was with my buddies hotdog compressor, maybe it's the bigger tank size?
