What kind of compressor do you carry on the van?

  • None, I drive an open-bodied pickup and don't want it stolen.

  • Tiny, less than 100$

  • Medium, good enough for all the leaks in my drains! ~300$

  • Large, Let's reroof this house!

  • Trailer

What compressor do you carry on the van?

For a while I've just carried a tiny compressor, good enough for your average well tank from 0-35psi in ~10mins. It has a glow in the dark gauge which is nice. When I knew ahead of time I'd need something bigger I would grab one from the tool crib.

Lately I've been carrying a "full size" compressor on the van, a Speedaire 45PL19. I didn't pick it out but I do like it. Plenty of volume, not terribly loud, pretty compact. We had one of the other service guys leave so I've been getting sent on more well pump calls and drain offs. That Speedaire was in the tool crib and brand new ;)
