Metabo HPT Tank XL Wheelbarrow Compressor: The Big Deal

Metabo HPT Tank XL compressor

This is Metabo HPT’s third entry in The Tank air compressor series. It also looks very similar to the discontinued EC2610E that came out several years ago. They have a lot in common and the updated model has some performance gains.

This air compressor was engineered to run a crew of framers, roofers, or siding installers on large jobsites without the need for electrical power. Metabo HPT tells us that it has the capacity to run up to five framing, siding, or roofing nailers simultaneously at the rate of production expected for a jobsite compressor.

At 9 gallons, The Tank XL also has the largest capacity out of any of Metabo HPT’s air compressors. It’s powered by a Honda GX160 gas engine to deliver better performance than the company’s previous compressors.

The Tank XL achieves 9.5 CFM at 90 PSI and provides up to 11% more air. This coupled with its large 9-gallon capacity lets you and your crew operate more tools on the job.

Additional Features

  • Assembled in the U.S.A
  • Oil-lubricated pump provides durability and long life
  • Solid rubber maintenance-free tire for traversing rough terrain
