You probably don't need this reminder, but somebody else might.
Read the fiine print on that thing and make sure it's 7.5 *running*. I bought one of the Lowes compressors just to get a 60 gallon tank (cheaper than buying the tank alone + shipping, GRRR) and it has 7.5HP in giant type, but 3.5HP (running) in small type. Maybe the one with the 80 gallon tank, like you're talking about, has a different motor, though. (BTW, I sold the compressor and motor off that system for $100 so the 60 gal. tank ended up costing me $327).
