How to buy a good truck or car found at the Internet site?Written by Pavel Borodin

What should I mention during my first contact with seller? Important - write down everything seller will say to you. Later, when you think everything over to make decision, you will appreciate it. 1.First of all represent yourself, name reason of your call and website where you have found truck. Ask if vehicle is still available. 2.Let's assume it is not sold yet. Then ask about every word in description to check it is really true. It is much better if you spend 2 minutes of your time now, than to come to buyer after and find out that there is no air conditioning, though it was mentioned at website. 3.Ask about everything that was not described - minor technical problems, condition of engine, body, clutch, suspension, tyres, interior. Do not forget anything, you should have complete picture in your mind. 4.When it comes to price, do not be shy to argue a bit. Usually people put a little higher price that would actually satisfy them. Anyway a little of bargaining never harmed anyone.
It is much better for if you choose several vehicles and make several calls. You should not restrict yourself to a single truck, remember - more choice you have, better truck you will buy. So by this time you should have called 3-4 sellers and have 3-4 papers with complete description at your table. Now its your time - relax and think everything over and make your final decision. Sometimes it is wise to call sellers again and tell them that you have a little better offers - it will surprisingly move prices down and help you make your final decision.
That's it, now you are ready to go and pick up your new used truck. Just don't forget to let your eyes see everything your ears heard - take paper with vehicle description (that you have written down during your talk with seller) and check everything. It is very advisable that you check truck or car at local service center - let professionals do their job.
And by way, last price is always fixed after final vehicle examination.

The Basics for Choosing the Right Air CompressorWritten by Jason Miller
Continued from page 1
The next rating criteria for air compressors is CFM. CFM stands for "cubic feet per minute". It is a measurement of volume. Basically it is how much air is being moved. Air tools require a certain amount of air volume to run on. PSI is just part of equation. Don't be confused by different CFM ratings at different pressures. Every manufacturer is trying to make their product look better by giving higher CFM ratings at different pressures. The only real concern is how much CFM you will get at 90 PSI. Remember 90 PSI is what most air tools require to operate. To find out what your air tool needs to run, just look on box for manufacturer’s specs. Generally, air tools require 4 - 6 CFM. A good rule of thumb on air compressors is you should get 3 -4 CFM per real HP at 90 PSI. The final factor to consider is tank size. Tank sizes are generally stated in US gallons. For example, 30 gallon is a common tank size. So question remains, how large a tank do I need? First of all, don't confuse a large tank with more run time for your air tools. If you use your impact intermittently, a large tank is fine. However if you have need for continuous use, you will need a small tank with big enough pump and motor. If pump and motor are powerful enough, you shouldn't run out of air. You can save some dollars by purchasing an air compressor with a large tank and smaller motor for intermittent use. If you need to run a 1" impact wrench (about 20 CFM) intermittently, and have a small compressor with a large tank, you might have enough air stored in tank to do job. However, if you are constantly running your air tool, you will need to invest in a more powerful air compressor to do job. You should be able to select air compressor armed with this information. Basically, you need to decide ultimately what you going to use unit for and pick appropriate model.
