I agree with 69Widetrack on the desiccnat dryer. They are kind of expensive but they work really well. I have a homemade one that im working on for the air line system that i plumbed into the walls of my garage but i also have one from Ingersol Rand that is about 6"in diameter and about 16 inches or so long. My small angle grinders use to get enough moisture going through them that they would freeze up if it was cold outside. I put quick disconnect Milton type M fittings in my system but what ever you like will work. When using the IR Dryer it has a radiator petcock on it and i usually tilt the dryer so any moisture runs to the bottom and just crack the valve a little so any moisture that condenses will run out. This saves on the desiccant use. BTW pure crystal cat litter is a great desiccant and its cheap in comparison.

The CFM "rated" output is respectable both at 90 and 40 PSI, any use of a paint gun for extended periods would tax the ability of this compressor to keep up, causing heat and moisture to develop. If you where planning on painting or priming parts, a desiccant dryer would be a good investment...even for air tools a desiccant dryer would help...it would remove the moisture coming from the condensation created from compressor head heat.
It looks like a decent compressor, as long as it's not used past it's limits.

I have the same compressor. So far so good for what I use it for.
I have a tee connection coming out of the tank so I can run one line at system pressure and one line regulated down to a lower pressure.
What are you planning to power with it?
