Quincy Compressor Help

Brand new to the forum and need some good advice. I spotted a used Quincy Compressor i need some help with. I'd like to upgrade my Oilless craftsman for the home shop. Uses will be some sanding, grinding, cutting and impacts, etc. No plans for major blasting. So the unit is a 3 HP 17 gallon with a QTS-5, 4-cylinder pump.

Somewhat concerned with the tank size, but could probably get a secondary tank. Also - any ideas what this unit is worth? Have seen unit and it's in great shape. Thanks in advance.

I think that pump with a 3 HP motor is capable of around 11 CFM so that tank could be a tad small, a 40 gallon would be about right for shop use and even 60 would not too much. Is that tank a factory setup? I think the smallest tank Quincy normally mounted those pumps on was about 30 gallons but of course the pump was available for installation on about anything.

Hard to say what it might be worth but it should be a good compressor if it's in good shape. Looks as if the CFM rating is higher than I thought and if you could find one it would work nicely on a 60 gallon tank.
