Any input appreciated: when using a compressor for spraying is there any difference between using an oil free compressor as opposed to a oil lubed compressor?

Thanks Drag

Oil-less are somewhat better for painting but I gotta warn you they are MUCH louder than oiled units. If you go oil-less do yourself a favor and get the biggest tank(most gallons) you can afford. It'll run longer to fill initially, but it'll run less often during use than a smaller tank will. Just my experience.

i use a oil sump compressor for volume. 5 hp. 60 gallon. they are consistent and last years.. it depends if you have the room and need for volume air, and if you have a 220 line
