Air compressor install questions

I was given a small compressor I know I will need an inverter to run it. Im just not sure what size or what kind to get any help would be great.

Compressor:
Puma LA5706 1-HP 1.5-Gallon Direct Drive Hot-Dog Air Compressor

I want to mount it in my tool box to have onboard air.

Re: Air compressor install questions

the site does not list the AMP draw so ??

typically these don't do well with inverters it's better to get a 12v motor IMO

you figure 1HP may be around 16 amps and would need a inverter over 1000 watts that needs a big cable but you can mount close to the batteries then run the compressor cord to the inverter

it's far from ideal even for free

Re: Air compressor install questions

What do you want to use the air for? That size compressor is not going to let you use air tools of any size.
