Im in the market for a 60 gallon air compressor and i only have about $500 to work with. I found a US General/Air Superiority for $479.99 at Harbor Freight. The specs if they can be believed are pretty good;

Air delivery: 12.8 CFM @ 90 PSI, 14.5 CFM @ 40 PSI

All the other compressors in this price range seemed to be like [email protected] or 11.5

So what do you guys think?

Know several people that use Harbor Freight. Prices always bothered me, the old "Get what you pay for" is always on my mind.
