where to buy a compressor?
 
Who in the lower mainland sells compressors?

Ive already checked out kms and i know princess auto sells them.
I know the big box stores cary a few but not what i want.

Im looking for a 60 or 80 gallon 220v compressor.

harbor freight is the same crap as princess auto though. cheap compressor equals cheap parts. and if you ever need to warranty it then your screwed. i would definitely prefer local.

BC Compressor (2007) Ltd. | Air Compressors | Our Trusted Brands | BC

I think these guys are a little more industrial/heavy commercial oriented though, but at least none of it will be the cheap crap.

Princess Auto offers more compressor bits than HF. You can get the tank and the motor separately and match it if you like. However 60->80Gal is a magnitude more expensive.. for that price I rather get 2 60Gal (with proper plumbing) rather than 1 80.

It depends on the OP's price range. KMS has factory refurb CH for cheap from time to time.

For the size, make sure your 220V is on its own panel you have good bracing on the floor if you are getting a vertical one. Also do think about cooling.. those things run hot!
