Just the racket that pursueded me to go for this upright. Space was major issue and it fits well. Looking at the small print, it’s a Ald/Lidl factory job from Germany.
    Luton based retailer using proper courier.
    I will update once in use.

    Still only 9.5 but added air storage just helps for short run plasma and spraying. I hope

    I have one of these and it has been good, I do spray using an LVLP gun and it seems to keep up enough for hobby spraying a car. I do like the vertical tank space saving and (not sure if it is deliberate) but the over pressure seems to act as a water trap, if each time you go to use it you pull and let out some pressure some of the trapped water comes out as well (you also need to drain the tank). My water filter for the spray gun stays bone dry.

    Looks really nice. I wanted an upright. But prioritised belt driven, and all the belt driven ones I saw were way over my budget.
    I wonder if one could buy the tank and wheels as a spare. Could make a great portable additional storage tank.
    What psi is it rated at? Only need to run 10 Bar.

    Its still going to run, maybe less often, but now longer, once the tank pressure drops. Direct drive are just noisy. Belt drive are a lot quieter.

    agree with you
    I am pretty pleased how quiet mine is compared to a friends direct drive. I did put it on a cheapo £5 anti vibration sound deadening mat from screwfix.
    The exhaust dump when it turns off is horribly noisy though. Makes you jump lol
    Hopefully I can fix a Solberg Air filter-silencer on it- seen them really quieten compressors .
