A Crapsman vertical tank compressor with a "rating" of
6hp and a 60 gal. vertical tank is "about" $300-400.
This depends on sales, and alot of other BS. This
compressor, (which I own) is marginal for continuous
sandblasting. Again, this depends on your gun, the
media and the pressure you decide to run. Mine's on a
50 ft. cord with a dryer plug on the end. I used the
shipping skid addeddded wheels to the bottom. Now I
can take this b*tch anywhere I want and also plug it
in in MOST houses. This has become vconvenientient
over the years.
