compressor for wintering

Can someone tell me where one can find a compressor that can put out 80 to 100 cfm? I was looking online and could not find any compessors that came close to putting that out, and these were some pretty big compressors with a big price tag..I guess the average guy can not do this himself or can he.
Thank you in advance for your help..

I doubt you will find the compressor you are looking for the traditional way...you will need to speak with some heavy equipment companies....Ingersol Rand....etc.

I think it is well worth paying the $60-$80 per year to have it done professionaly...occassionaly you will be able to find a used tow behind compressor that will suit your needs for under $5000.00....but you would never need it again....seems like a no brainer to me...

Post your city/state and I will help you find a good contractor...I have a few contacts around the US....

I use my little pancake compressor (probably 3 cfm)and it has worked fine for years. My system is about 1.5 acres and I live where it gets -30F. You dont need a compressor like the one you are looking for.
Thanks,

Pete
