How loud is the compressor? Is it an oiless or sealed unit?

Wonder if it would be good for drying a car? Lol. Detailer trick to use compressed air to blow water out of everywhere and off the paint without wiping the car down... reduces swirl marks and scratches

Stapler or nailer...
If you are not needing contractor grade or Brand name then look at flyers from Canadian tire and Princess Auto.

With my Porter Cable Pancake compressor I would correct 2 categories:
It CAN definitely run a finish nailer and a Framing Nailer <--not continuous Contractor duty

I concur with the finish nailer. I use a Mastercraft compressor that is about the same size as this for light trim work. If you have to install a few feet of baseboard it should do the trick.
A framing or roofing nailer will probably cause it to cycle so frequently that it would be standing around more than nailing though.

It would have been far less effort for you to click the conveniently placed OP linkread the description than
1/ type out your question
2/ wait for a response
3/ filter out responses for any with an answer instead of telling you to go read the description.

It's 70db noise and oiless.

At this level I wear ear protection. Indoors it is annoying enough that I run the compressor/hose into 2nd room, door closed.
