I believe (may be wrong but its over 30 years old) ours has a 3hp motor, with a decent size air pump, it's a 200 litre item and hasn't given major problems... I've recently had to change the head gasket due to the original being cracked but other than that all I do is change the oil once a year and keep it clean.yes but they only have small motors so take ages to refill. for that size you need one with decent pump on it. I could add extra tank to my compressor but there is no point.
Three phase for a 200 litre compressor? Most I've seen run fine on a standard household plug
i havea 50 ltr v twin compressor, its in the shed so i can hardly hear it. But, it sprays well, does the nut guns reasonably, blows off etc. Now, really, if you want to do sanding, buy an electric Da, or use a jig saw for cutting steel instead of an air saw. The size of a 200ltr compressor, and more than likely the 3 phase you need to run it, forget it for the home gamer really.
You can get one like mine on ebay new for £200.
