If you are buying an air compressor, the single bit tank "Hot Dog" is a better choice, if ya have the room, They have larger air storage tanks, vs a wheelbarrow style compressor.

No New Posts What's the difference?
This is probably a question for Lori,but I'm sure there'll be someone else that would know too.What's the difference between a demand pump and a bypass pump?Which is the better of the two for cleaning roofs as that'll be all I'll be cleaning?Thanks
