Is the air flow on these any good? Bought one years ago and the air tools …Is the air flow on these any good? Bought one years ago and the air tools and it hardly gave enough constant pressure to operate them....


It depends what air tools you run off it and for how long. This machine has an air displacement of 9.3 cfm but the free air delivery cfm will be lower (the useful air flow). This is how the calculate the free air delivery... Multiply the max working pressure on bar by tank size in litres (8x24). Then multiply by 1000. Now time now long it takes to fill the tank from empty in minutes (eg. 3 mins and 36 secs will be 3.6). Now divide your first answer by the time it took. And lastly divide by 28.3 to get your actual free air delivery figure.
With the true free air figure you can then buy air tools to suit the compressor. BUT there is another issue! The figures on tools like drills/impact guns/spray guns and grinders are misleading because they are almost always rated at 50% of their true air demands (often worded as 50% duty cycle or intermittent). So when you see this wording you know to double it or else the compressor will not keep up for more than the initial first few seconds.

These are good for inflating tyres, air beds, kids paddling pools etc plus, also for using an air gun to clean blast of dirt dust etc. Don't expect to be using it with a 1/2 air ratchet or gun to remove wheel bolts etc. The pressure will be enough initially but the compressor and tank will be to small to keep up and you will have to keep stopping. I have a very similar one I bought from screwfix a few years ago well worth the money in my opinion handy to have

if you have the space, add a big tank to your system. Makes a hell of a difference. I used an old compressor tank mounted in the corner of the garage. Takes a while to pump up but you can do a lot of work before the compressor cuts in again. My compressor would not cope on its own for many seconds.
Not worth the price at such low PSI/HP also I doubt it’ll be able to deliver anything near the 9.3 CFM they claim.
Is this going to be good to use with a paint spray gun? Or is the one from Lidl better?

Performance wise they are both about the same, should run a spray gun ok but you might have to pause every now and then to give it time to build up pressure. Chances are that you will pause anyway unless you are spraying a battleship.
These are often sold along side impact guns and air chisels, and they simply are not man enough to run these 👿

I have a similar aldi one and tried all the tools... half of which went back for refund...
Spraying isn't a problem, inflates tyres and drive pins/staples a treat, but for playing at car mechanics... spend more, swear less.
I'm guessing this is alittle overkill to pump up my son's size 3 football. 😁
Why would you even consider one of these now you can get excellent battery powered tools? (Genuine question, I feel I must be missing the point in view of the widespread use of air tools in garages, but I'm just puzzled)

Definitely, but his mates will think you’re the coolest dad in the street.

A word of warning though, you’ll be the ‘go to’ dude for all the other lads. Speaking from experience here.

Spraying, drying, cleaning, blowing up tyres etc
Helpa ! Ferrex or Parkside? Who makes them, which is better? Someone said Ferrex is Scheppach but the Parkside has the same wheels. Is oil lube better than oil less. Looking to run Schultz gun and waxoyl car job. Thanks.
