I'm running this off of a husky/campbell hausfeld 30 gallon air compressor that claims to be 5.5CFM @ 90 PSI. I dialed the regulator down to 90psi on the compressor, the compressor itself holds at 135psi. It kept up very well, I was able to run for 3-4 minutes before the compressor would kick on and with it running it would hold at 90psi. I'd take a minute to catch a breath every now and again as I'm doing this out in the 95 degree Texas sun according to the thermometer and the compressor would kick back off, so it wasn't taking long at all to refill and keep up. I wasn't running back to the compressor to time it or anything, but a minute recharge to let me go another 3-4 without it running seems like it's doing just fine to me. I know this thing calls for 9 something odd CFM but it was doing well enough with however much this thing puts out, could it do better? Probably, but I can't afford another $500 worth of compressor.
I'm also running one of those little cheapie $10 oil water separators, for whatever that's worth.
I did a shortened piece of hose like another poster did. Also like him I didn't check the before with the full length hose, but I was blasting on the ground right next to the bucket of sand and didn't need the long hose for siphoning anyway. I didn't have any problem with the threads scraping like he did, so maybe a bit better QC on this one. And yes like another poster mentioned, this doesn't come with a quick disconnect, but I've never encountered a tool that does. So nab one of those ahead of time as well.
Next, the media. Straight up bag O sand from home depot. People recommend play sand, run through a screen.Read more ›
I also purchased the 3M face shield, DuPont TY127S Tyvek Fabricsuit, and the "3M 6000 Series Half Facepiece Respirator, Medium" "All here on Amazon" (Note buy extra shields for the faceshield (2). Here is a tip "pulse the trigger to draw sand a little faster
NOTE: my dual chamber compressor is not large enough to run this thing. I think it has two 2.5 gal tanks. Here's the problem with small compressors- moisture. The more the compressor runs, the more moisture the builds up in the compressor and lines, especially in humid climates, and even here in dry Boise it was too much. The water clogs the sand and it won't work. I had to run to Home Depot and get a moisture filter/ remover that hooks on just before the tool, it's pretty small and doesn't really get in the way, about $12. The filter did get some water out, but it was not good enough and the tool still clogged up. I barely got through the job, but I think I'd only use this on a very small job with my small compressor and figure on it clogging after about 5 minutes. I'd have to take it to a buddy's house with a larger compressor if I wanted to do a larger project.
It seemed to work pretty good doing my project on the grass, some sand is good anyhow to help loosen up the grass. Just put a tarp under your project to catch any larger pieces/ most of the sand. I wouldn't try re-using the sand (has junk in it).
CONCLUSION- get it if you have a large compressor, although you may still need to buy a $12 moisture filter (as noted in the instructions), especially in more humid climates.
I was using it to blast the underside of my Jeep with Quickrete play sand. The sand fed great at 90 PSI, started to sputter around 80 PSI, and basically stopped working at 60 PSI. I have a 2.5 HP Ingersoll Rand compressor that claims to do 6.4 CFM @ 90 PSI. Boy was that a lie. I was getting literally 20-30 seconds of decent blasting (basically the time it took to bleed the 20 gal tank from 110 PSI down to 80 PSI), then I'd have to stop and wait several minutes for the compressor to catch up. I even added my 7 gal portable tank into the mix at one point to buy myself a few more seconds with the extra volume.
Richard J. Kinch has a great page called "Evaluating True Horsepower and CFM Ratings of Air Compressors". After reading that, I did the experiments with my compressor and found that it was actually only putting out 1.4 CFM @ 90 PSI. Talk about frustrating! DON'T TRUST MANUFACTURER COMPRESSOR SPECS!! Needless to say, a new compressor is now on my wishlist. And I'm not going to buy it unless they let me fire it up and stopwatch its cycle-time first.
Kinch was also a bit of a depressing read. He explains that there simply is not enough energy coming out of a 15A 120V outlet to generate more than about 6 CFM at 90 PSI, and that's with a two-stage compressor in a perfect world. After you account for the various inefficiencies and losses, the best-case is really about 3-4 CFM at 90 PSI.Read more ›
