Yes, you can do it, not sure how the CFM would be figured exactly, but my
Dad and I do this whenever we blast from a pressure blaster.
Just make sure that the tanks are rated the same. Don't wanna be putting
175lbs into a tank with a 150lb ratings, probably be okay, but don;t take the
chance.....just adjust the pressure switch to match the lowest rated tank
