    Vertical Garage Air Compressor Recommendations
    My 25-Year-Old, 10-Gallon Compressor is end of life.
    I want to go to a vertical compressor to save some space in the garage.
    Needs to be 110-120V unit.
    Don't need anything to extravagant plus I do not w=want to spend a bunch.
    What are you guys using??

    For Example:

    Mine's 60 gallon and 220V, so I'm no help. I would like to increase storage capacity if I could.

    Edit: 60, not 80 gal.

    [FLAME]I wonder if it's safe to remove the old compressor and turn the tank into a separate storage tank? [/FLAME]

    I was considering buying one I came across on craigslist a while back....my concern is on the condition of the tank if it's not new.

    Often times those oil-free compressors are real loud 'buzz bombs', unless they have the twin pump setup like the Lowes model. Check the DBA ratings.
