Top tools: Rolair Systems’ Hand Carry Air Compressor
It’s nice to have a buddy on the jobsite. The Air Buddy hand carry air compressor from Rolair is compact and easy to carry (at just 22 lbs.). The 0.5 hp electric, oil-less motor can generate 0.7 CFM at 90 psi and 3,400 rpm while producing a relatively low 68 db of noise. Other features of the Air Buddy include manual overload protection, a ¼” universal quick disconnect, a ball valve-style drain, and a roll cage design to protect the pump and motor from the rough and tumble of the jobsite.
