Reply To: what is the best compressor for the fx wildcat?
I have a Shoebox Freedom 8 plus a JB filter/dryer. I like the adjustable automatic cut off and ease at which one can lube the Shoebox compressor and rods. I also like the fact I can easily put it in the car and take it with me to a range or friends place. I don’t think the other compressors being discussed lend themselves to being transportable.. The Shoebox also came with everything needed for a rebuild and the rebuild looks easy.
I already had a other 150 and 200 psi shop compressors so that was not a cost add for me. The only downside is it is slower as everyone noted. No big deal for me though as I start it up and forget about it and come back to my tank sitting right at the psi I set. I fill the guns off my tank so I only use the Shoebox like once every two to four weeks.
Customer support and communication from ShoeBox is top notch.
