I've been looking at the systainer compressor offerings and I'm doing a comparison.  I'm new to air; I'd like to use air for riveting, stapling and nailing, mostly lighter stuff.  I think riveting would be the most taxing and the gun I'm looking at needs between 4-7 bar so all compressors below would work.

Schneider SYM 150-8-6 WXOF A911000
Bar 8
PSI 116
HP ?
Weight (kg) 13

Is the Prebena worth a shot?  Not bothered it's in the classic systainer format, it will always be at the bottom of a stack.  It appears to be the most under powered and heaviest.  What does a smaller tank mean in the real world?  It takes more time to build something as you are waiting for it to refill?

I have spoken to Prebena and they are willing to consider a discount code for a multi purchase scheme if any one else is interested.

Thanks for your time.

I doubt you'll find many round here that will want a new tool in an old style systainer.

The weight isn't going to win many guys over either.

We did sell one of these, very well made, a tad heavy and a tad noisy when sitting on our shop floor. This was some time ago though so maybe they are a little quieter now? I think we even have a Systainer based additional tank in the warehouse somewhere.

I'd prefer a Senco for the T-Loc Systainer, lighter weight and low noise. However the price differential is substantial.  [eek]

Your comparison table omits the most important spec of a compressor, the rated delivery volume at specified pressures (CFM at 40psi and 100psi in Imperial units).  This tells you how much work the compressor will support.

I got schneider compressor in the systainer. Using for second fix nailer and headless nailer. Worth the money [wink]
