    I'd love something like this if it could fill to say, 4000, and really existed.

    I downloaded the manual and it reads like a grammatically edited Harbor Freight tool manual.

    Interesting points.
    Only fills to 2750 so your aluminum 80 is actually only a 70. But you can over fill a steel 72 and get 80cf if you want I guess.

    The compressor has a mechanically operated pressure relief valve that opens a 3000 psi or 3300 psi depending where you look on the page.

    Temps over 86ยบ do not allow for continuous operation. The times given to fill an "80" are the same regardless of temp though. How long is the cool down?

    Filters last 20 hrs. 18+/- fills of an 80.

    Oh yeah, don't run if it's hailing!

    I really wish I could find a reliable compressor for around this price that could fill hp tanks, had good filter life, ran off 110v, and was quiet. Not much to ask right? Living in a townhouse places limits on noise and storage. I wouldn't care if it took an hour to fill a 100. Would be nice to have an auto drain if it took that long though.

    Anyway, the manual is fun reading.
