What the hell are you going to do with 2 gallons of air? Make some ballon dogs for a birthday party, you will hate life if you get anything smaller than a 5 gallon tank. A lot of people have a 5 gal skinny with an AZ, and I have not seen one reported problem yet. Should work well for you :tup:

Hey guys, I think he's saying (2) as a quantity amount, and (5) as in gallon tank, meaning he's saying an AZ comp. with a total of 10 gallons of air (2 tanks 5 gallons each) would be perfect.. blah blah. It'll work, yes, but you won't be getting a ton of play time. (2) AZ comp. for each tank would be much more fun.

Ohhhh, I musta been pretty wasted to miss that last night. I wouldn't recomend doing 10 gal on any one compressor (except maybe the new oasis or something). Plus I never like having just one mean of filling up a tank. What do you do WHEN something breaks. If your gonna be laying frame you will definetly need to save up and run two compressor, because if you only have one and it fails your screwed. If your not layin, then you can sure start with one AZ, it may hate you for asking it to fill 10 gallons, but hey thats why they are rebuildable, right? Hope it works out well for you. Good luck :tup:

Good call, which is why I'm gonna run (2) 5 gal. tanks with 2 comps. Lots more play time than having one comp fill 10 gallons of air.

edit: as long as we're on the subject. I was planning on running (2) Viair 460's with my (2) 5 gal. tanks. Now, here's the question: Is it really worth the extra $200 for AZ comp's instead of Viair's 460s? I know 460s are 150psi, and AZ's are 200psi, but has anyone had both and can tell me an unbiased opinion on if it's really worth $200 more?
