80 Gallon Compressor Upgrade (painting)

Hi folks I'm looking for recommendations to replace my 80 gallon. Its 1969 vintage and has developed some scaling and oil leaks. I'm looking something reliably high CFM for basically any gun and 100PSI minimum for tools. Maybe $1500 price wise? thanks.

Curtis, Quincy, Ingersoll Rand Industrial, Atlas Copco are all industrial type, heavy duty units. A 2-stage, 80 gal, 5-7 hp compressornis what you need. Last your life time if maint kept up

I would submit for your consideration, the DeWalt DXCMV5048055 2-stage, cast iron industrial air compressor, 80 gallon, 5 horsepower. 17.9 CFM @100 psi to run multiple air tools at the same time.

I was looking at the IR Type 30 for $1600 but the CFM rating was a bit low at 14. The Quincy units look great but they are pricey. This is definitely the value leader but quality I have no idea

I've had a Quincy for my home shop and love it. They have an outstanding reputation. I maintain it well and it always keeps up with my tools and has never let me down. Good luck.

Worked around Quincy's in bodyshops, bought an IR for the house. It gets worked hard and haven't had any issues with but wished I had bought a Quincy. They run at lower rpm and much quieter then most others.
