Fortress compressor
Posted by goldhammer on Friday, June 19, 2020 5:44 PM

I just picked up the 2 gal ultra quiet version.  It's as quiet as a state dinner at a monestary.  Puts out 135 psi so it will run my framing and finish nailers as well as inflating duties.  Weight is about 35 lbs. Cost is about $165, so not real cheap.  I happened to catch a coupon for $30 off.  Cycle time is quick as only a 2 gal tank.  Add a water trap before the AB, and you're good to go and the significant other won't complain about excess noise.

I bought the version with the 1 gallon tank in March and I'm happy with it. It was $120 - 125. Took me a little while to get used to the pressure relief after the tank fills but I don't notice it now. Besides, it relieves pressure on the compressor itself so it's a good thing. I started to get the one you bought, kinda wish I had, but I can live with it. :-)
