I just picked up a 15 gallon upright for the garage. I am going to be running a variety of tools, nothing greater than a 1/2" impact.

What size hose and fittings should I be running? The biggest tool uses 4.4 CFM and my compressor will flow 5.0 CFM at 100 PSI.

Are you hard lining multiple fixed outlets? In my old house I ran lines on both sides with quick connects off the walls and a retractable line in the middle from the ceiling.

I would just buy a craftsman hose but I will tell you don't go cheap on impacts. I have a craftsman and spent the money and upgraded to a Snap On and well worth the money! Breaks bolts loose without issue. When I had to take the driveshaft bolts off my 88 notch and they had never been loosened and it was the year 2008 they zipped right out. My 1/4 in Snap On is stronger than the 1/2" Craftsman.

The hose is professional series where it's less likely to stretch under pressure it's supposed to keep better line pressure.

1/2" hose is pretty standard.

I had a PVC hose before the rubber one I have now. That sucked as it always wanted to stay coiled, especially before the garage was heated.

So we seem to keep glossing over NPT fittings and it is confusing me. I just looked on my compressor and it has a quick connect coupler that is 1/4" coming out of the unit.

If I run 1/4" coupler out of the compressor, 1/4" coupler at the end of the hose, and 1/4" quick connect on the tool....won't it choke the tool out assuming I am running 1/2" line?

Never had a problem with the basic fittings from home depot with my IR2135 etc. When I redid my setup though I went with the Milton Hi Flo fittings. Wasn't a need more of a want. The impact goes a little bit better but I haven't challenged it too much. This is all with 3/8 hose though. Don't see a need to go 1/2 inch until you get to the bigger 3/4 or 1 inch impacts.

When you say "basic fittings" are you referring to 1/4" NPT fittings? I have a 3/4" & 1" impacts, but that is overkill for anything I will be doing.

Good to know that your 1/2" IR runs off of that setup though. Thanks!

People on garagejournal claim it will run better on 1/2 but I haven't run into anything even honda crank bolts that have stopped it without snapping first. No reason in my book to lug around 1/2 but that is my garage wrenching opinon.

Well I should be all set.....Ordered up a Goodyear 3/8" 50' rubber hose, all new Milton Hi-Flo 1/4" fittings, air chuck, and blow gun. The Hi-Flow fittings/couplers are nice upgrade over what came installed on the compressor. Looking forward to testing everything out!
