Iâ??m in the market for a compressor.  Iâ??m looking for about 10 CFM at 90 psi.

I actually have an Eastwood scroll compressor on backorder, but Iâ??m getting 
anxious, and thinking about other things to spend the price difference on.  I 
do like that the scroll compressor is very quiet, though.

Iâ??ve looked at four possibilities, all much cheaper than the Eastwood:

        Husky 60 gallon (from Home Depot)
        Kobalt 60 gallon (from Lowes)
        Puma PK-6060 (from Amazon)
        Campbell Hausfeld VT6195 (from Grizzly)

The Husky and Kobalt are very close in price, the Puma and CH are a bit more.

The Kobalt is dual-stage, the rest are single stage (but dual cylinder), but 
all meet my expected air requirements.

I believe the Kobalt is made by CH, though it is not the same as the CH model 
Iâ??m looking at.

Any experience or comments on any of these choices?  Anything else I ought to 
look at in a similar range?
