Default Small air compressor for filling well tanks

What kind of air compressor do you SERVICE guys keep on the van? I don't need a huge one like the carpenters use for nail guns. Just something that can fill a 30ish gallon well tank in like 5-10 minutes. Preferably quiet but it really just needs to be small because I rarely need one and don't have much space on the van.

That looks real similar to the ones sold for small airbrush kits when painting models. I am considering one.

Some of our guys have these senco ones, looks the same but with a tank. I might take the tank and pressure switch off and just add a relief valve.

You have the makita tool line? They make one too. The next one seems to be rebranded for several names, HD, goodyear etc.

Sorry, didn't see your first post. I have makita stuff. I don't really want a cordless one because it will just kill batteries. Especially a 12v model.

That goodyear model looks good. If that makita model was 18v maybe I would get it. I only have 18v batteries. 12v would die way too fast.

I have a husky that runs on 12 and 120 volts. I've had it for years and have used it to fill up everything from expansion tanks to truck tires. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Husky-12...2120/302752823

I think they have an updated model now.
