I don’t think 10 gallon is very big. Canadian tire had the 8 gallon on sale at $130

I don't know about the quality but having a 10 gallon tank at 135 psi is pretty good for that price, IMHO. My compressor is fairly useless for my needs, but it's only 2 gallons or so and at 100 psi. Might be worth the purchase price for me.

i bought the 8g version a few years ago and its great. Oil-filled. I like the 10G because it's upright. Go for it if all you need is general garage usage

should work. depending on your lot size and distance to sprinklers, you may need to cycle it a few rounds.

if your planning to use a wide range of air tools, get at lease 15 gallon tank, or bigger the better.

SCFM is very important- can it maintain sufficient pressure to power the most useful air tools. 3.8 SCFM at 90 PSI seems pretty good.

Good price for what it is.
Ok size tank, oil lube so a longer life than oilless. Seems rebuildable. Made in USA.
I suspect it will be loud.
A larger tank would be nice, but for $154, it’s a great value.

Suitable for any nailers, impact guns and some spraying (as long as you don’t mind waiting and have a filter in the airline for oil).

As with any compressor, watch out for duty-cycle if you want it to last. That info is in the manual. 50% for this one (typical for this type).

Can't get more from a 120v outlet.
Sure you can at more than 15 amps.
