    If it has an output of 4500psi or more then yes. But most likely the one your looking at wont. Most compressors that will have an output of 4500psi cost about $5000 min. You can find used ones on ebay for around $3000.

    Service on air compressors are easy. Just keep them clean and make sure you empty them out every few weeks to make sure there is no water inside the tank to make the tank rust.
