Air or water cooled?
Deutz runs hot as hell, but they love runnin that way. When the muffler craps out an empty 55 gallon drum works well.
That ought to be one hell of a machine for abrasive blasting. Seems about the right size for a citydweller forhis basement shop.

I spose it could be up to 25 cfm, it would certainly be a pricey unit unless there was a special application where realatively low pressure air was needed on a long term basis. It probably would sandblast pretty fair.

Before today I have never heard of a screw air compressor, now I have heard it twice in one day. Is this you also?

Didn't know they made rotary compressors that small. WhishI could find one, will have to start looking.

9hp on a compressor ain't a whole lot of power, especially when it comes to sandblasting.
The rule of thumb on screw type compressors has always been that they don't become economicle under 20hp. Above 20hp, they become very cost effective, especially if you reclaim the power they waste as heat to heat a shop.

I'm not a real big fan of IR, they've rebadged too much Mexican junk and flat refuse to support it. No Parts, and No Habla English when you call the factory for information. Just another American company turned whore by the MBA boys.

We had a couple of single cylinder Deutz diesels running high pressure three stage compressors. Used them to fill a bank of bottles to operate an air gun for siesmic. They'd put up around 2000 psi. Great little engines. Had a hand crank with a decompression lever. Always started and ran all day well above 100 deg in the African sun.
