Default Correct Quincy compressor for me?

I'm about to pull the trigger on a Quincy compressor. I decided on the QTSV-45-60 1 phase model.
http://www.quincycompressor.com/prod...ub=3&subsub=10

The primary qualities I was looking for is low noise and dependable service life.

The tools I would be running on it most of the time are:
Nailers (finish,framing..)
Impact wrenches and ratchets
die grinder

I will also ocasionaly use it for:
Sandblasting cabinet
Plasma cutter
air hammer
Paint gun


If any one has anything negative to say about that quincy model (maybe I'm not aware of some quirk of a perticular model) or thinks I should go for a different model, please let me know.

Thank you

Remi, I bet you would get more relevant comments if you'd post a link instead of depending on
Barry to do it for you. He might not catch this for an hour or two.

Wellsir, I looked it over, Remi & it sure looks good so long as you don't need more than 125 psi. Contrary to popular belief, I don't consider myself to be any kind of compressor expert although I do play one on TV , but I think the single stage units are probably better suited to most of us on this site. I woupld probaby be better off myself than I am with my old 2-stage; I've never pumped it up beyond 130 psi because I don't need it & the extra pounds would just mean more stress on everything in the system.
Looks like a good choice to me.

Cutter - ROFLMAO!!!

IMO, Quincy Compressor is one of the finest companies today to deal with. They register the serial number of your compressor & the selling dealer & date of sale. If you have a problem five years later, Quincy looks up the history of your unit.

I had a valve plate fail on a QT3, two cylinder, under warranty. No problem, free replacement parts. Then, two years later, same thing happened. This time the company sent the parts plus new head bolts - problem solved - and even though well out of warranty, no cost.

I'd buy another Quincy in a heartbeat.
