For Xmas I decided to get an air compressor for myself to save time removing lug nuts and the occasional use around the car.
To keep things on a budget I bought the following:
At 90psi it outputs 4.7CFM.
To go with it I bought this 1/2 impact:
On the site it says 4.4CFM at 90psi to run
, however upon purchase the actual box says 6CFM at 90PSI
I haven't broken in the compressor yet but when I hooked it all up for testing, set the pressure to 90PSI and the gun felt....really weak. Haven't actually tried it yet on the car but when I stopped by Harbor Freight and spoke to a sales guy, he said my compressor won't cut it.
So the question is, the gun runs optimally at 6CFM @ 90PSI. If I was to use it with my current compressor which only does 4.7CFM @ 90PSI, it'll work albeit weaker than rated/designed/optimal correct?
Any insights appreciated!
