A large number of businesses – from garages and SCUBA diving centres; to construction companies and manufacturing plants – benefit from the use of air compressors. They have an almost endless range of uses, as high pressure can be used for cleaning, operating hand tools, inflatables, spray painting, and sandblasting. Depending on usage, the type – and cost – of an air compressor varies greatly, and there are a number of factors which will affect the price.
