I would only be using it mainly for light duty. Probably just for nail guns and maybe some small spraying projects. If I were to get into larger spray projects I would go the stand alone type of sprayer. I like the low noise level of them because a lot of times when I'm in my basement shop everyone is sleeping. The 10020c is the model I was interested in buying. It's a 2hp, 10 gal. compressor.
