Anyone carry air tools with them?

Hey, I have an on board air compressor and air tank.. its a 5 gallon 200psi setup and was debating if it is worth carrying around an impact gun for tire changes or whatever, and I was wondering if I'd be a bigger tank to use the impact gun or if that would be enough to change a tire. I already have the air hose and regulator all set up since I use it to fill my tires.

Anyone else have this type of setup or anything different that works like a charm?

Well it depends on the impact wrench, it should say how much psi takes to run it on the wrench but, that would be cool as hell if you ever had a flat. It sure does beat the hell out of tire iron.

What you do need also is a 100% duty cycle pump so that it can just run and run if it has to.

it'll take a little longer to take off a wheel but it should work, just let the pressure build up past 100psi and it should take a lug off with minimal effort

I put a regulator on the air line for 90psi, which is what the gun works at, and had my tank full up to 200 psi, and it is a 100% duty cycle compressor, I was playing around with it, it uses alot more air then I thought.. I never actually tried it in lug nuts because i didn't have the impact sockets, but just fooling around with the gun I'd say I can change one tire before its completely dead, well sad news, i returned the gun, and figured I'd use that money to upgrade my tank and maybe go dual compressors, then invest in another impact gun
