Snap-On Compressor Help

I've a chance to get a Snap-On compressor for $350, but I can't find the specs anywhere, and the guy whose selling it doesn't seem to know either.
The model # is BRA5140H, and it isn't listed on the Snap-On website. The guy did tell me that it's a 37.3 gal unit though. Do any of you fine folk have any insight on this thing....especially with the CFM specs? I want to run an assortment of air tools, maybe paint, and maybe sandblast.

Waiting on a new pressure switch from Brama. Funny story, I had to remove the motor in order to remove the switch. After I pulled the switch out, I thought I'd drain the pump oil to change it out. Well, the oil drain tube doesn't extend far enough out the front of the tank, so I thought I'd jack up the back end of the compressor just a tad to help the draining oil clear the tank. As I was jacking the end up, the motor (which I had neglected to bolt back on) fell off the front end, breaking the motor switch/terminal pad on the inside. So after a little searching, I found the term. pad for $30. All in all, a small job got bigger.
