Choosing 50 Litre Air Compressors
50 litre air compressors are a mid-sized compressor for both professional and personal use. Their relatively small size means they won’t be out of place in a home garage, but their power and output make them viable for general-purpose workshops and factories.
They can be used for a variety of operations, such as – painting, spraying, nailing or a wide range of air functions, including – cleaning, inflating, blowing and others.
What is Available?
A reputable provider, such as Machine Mart, offers a wide array of air compressors, including several different options on the 50 litre scale. A compressor with two horsepower and 7.5 CFM (cubic feet per minute) can cost around £170, including VAT.
For those in need of a more powerful machine, a 3 HP model with 14.5 CFM can be purchased for under £300. Obviously, the latter machine will offer the buyer more bite for their buck. You should assess your needs and approach the market accordingly.
For rental, TV Tool Hire offer daily prices between £44.55 and £55.00, depending on the required CFM, or weekly rates of £81.00 to £100.00. If you are looking to use the machine for anything more than a couple of days, it would make good financial sense to purchase and consider the compressor as an investment for the future.
Different Elements to Consider
Many machines now come fitted with automatic pressure gauges, twin outlets and noise reduction hardware. Be sure to take into account all the pros and cons of your desired model before parting with your cash to make sure you get the right compressor for you and avoid frustration later on.
