    Recommend me the SX equivalent to air compress, and air gun. I need to work on a SUV and a bike so the most adaptive the better.

    Cheap Basses can be modded, cheap tools can't. If you're even remotely serious about wanting an air compressor and air tools buy the good stuff right off the bat (not that you need Snap On, but Craftsman would be ideal).

    As far as the compressor, avoid oil-free ones like the plague, and I wouldn't get anything less than 5 horsepower and 30 gallons. If you're doing any serious painting or running a die grinder or cutoff wheel for extended times, 5 horses and 60 gallons is the minimum I'd recommend.

    As far as an impact wrench, an Ingersoll-Rand IR231 is all the gun you'll ever need.

    ditto, I also love my Makita 3/8" cordless impact, I don't know how I went 20 years without one as a pro. quiet, and I can use it inside a brand new lexus without dragging a dirty hose accross the cream colored leather.
