[Lowe's] Briggs & Stratton 3-Gallon 100-PSI Pancake Portable Electric Air Compressor - $54.50 (50% off)

Pretty good deal on a little air compressor, have been looking for one for quite some time now and this seems like one of the best deals I've come across for something this small and portable. Great alternative to the painful little 12V compressors. Not going to be enough power for anything other than inflating tires and some brad nailing. Nonetheless, great little unit to inflate your tires way faster than a little car pump around the same price point if not cheaper.

Great price. Great post.

And the influx of “will this be enough to change over my winter tires?” Comments in 3,2,1...

Nope, this thing only has a output of 0.5 CFM at 90 PSI. An impact wrench requires a CFM of around 4.0 (at least) at 90 PSI.

Agreed - effectively it's only useful for trim work haha!

But ultra portable so if you’re doing a bunch of trim and baseboard or even craft nailing it’s great.

This is the first time I've heard of this US company. More here: https://www.basco.com/who-we-are.html
Not a bad on price.
My only concern would be Warranty and parts in your locale.
The regulator is usually the first thing that goes. Once you buy this it'd be a good idea to cycle it [fill and empty] a few times to make sure the motor, regulator and seals are working as they should.

Topping up tire pressure no problems.
For lug nuts running a full sized pneumatic Impact gun 2x a year would be okay. Definitely not daily use.
One reviewer on his Kobalt Impact wrench wrote: "My compressor is a bit light for my impact wrench - 5 cfm vs 6 cfm. It still worked fine - would remove 5 - 7 lug nuts before the compressor cycled (cycles at 90 psi). "
