I've got a 33 gallon, 150 psi max, 1.6 hp, 5.1 [email protected] and 6.3 [email protected] I was wanting to buy a 50ft hose to avoid using an extension cord. Should I buy a 1/4 or 3/8 hose? I'll be using the compressor for mechanic work. I'll be running a impact wrench and air ratchet most of the compressors life (at home mechanic), with the occasional home projects (nail gun, hopper, etc.)

I'm geared more towards the 1/4, because I would think the pressure would drop a bit by the time it got to the tool, after running through 50ft of 3/8 hose. It's just my theory.
