Compressor 8 Gallon $ 149 Campbell Hausfeld 50 % cheaper then HD.

Retailer:
Costco
Picked one at Costco -looking for light occasional garage DIY and sprinkler blowouts.
Quiet Air Compressor, 8-Gallon, Horizontal (DC080510D1)
Good reviews on homedepot.ca but pricy at 294 and old model DC 080500.

The specs are about the same as my oil leaking Mastercraft, my local Costco are still selling for 199, so I am thinking to claim my warranty from Canadian tire before it expires the coming summer, will that be a difficult process?

I got it for 149 as it was on promotion for weekend ,back to 199 .
I did return it beca of very low CFM and hot dog style took much space .
Instead bought this one from homedepot for 148 ,more gallons and CFM too, had good reviews on HD.com.Tx Prod for pointing out.

After a little more research, even the stronger husky might not be enough for me. More like 5-6cfm at 90 psi for automotive tools.

These lower output models/styles will usually work for sprinkler blowouts, but keep in mind that the CFM is far too low to totally clearly out a line. The lower numbers are still going to be enough to blow out the majority of the water to prevent cracking of the line due to freezing, but only of flatter layouts. Anything remotely uphill will be too much for these smaller compressors. I have a similar upright snap on brand one and although it works to prevent damage, I know I'm leaving a lot of moisture in my system when compared to commercial high CFM compressors.

Also, there aren't really meant to the majority of air tools. You can still run an impact etc.., but only in shirt bursts while it recovers. If you plan on doing anything beyond zapping a lug off, you'll be spending a chunk of downtime between nuts/wheels.
Please don't ask or beg for "thanks". Don't act like this is Facebook. If someone found your post helpful, let them decide if they want to make that click. The more you beg, the less you'll get. Cheers
