Is this powerful enough to run a tornado gun from. I don't know anything about compressors and the like but always fancied one of those tornado guns for cleaning interiors

You need to know the volume of air the tornader uses it’s a lot and this compressor would need to run constant I bet to keep it going, I have used one on a 150lts tank 3x that tank and it was ok, rep at AS will say 50ltr ok , if you had maybe dual pump this will likely be single pump I think at price

Yours was actually 6 x that one, the tank is 24ltr.

I have the Lidl equivalent one, and it's OK for the nail gun, tyre gauge etc but I doubt it'd power the Tornador.

I got the code too.

From the Aldi website:24l Tank Air displacement: 262 l/min, 9.3 CFM

From Elite car care: All you need is a compressor with a discharge rate of at least 270 l per minute (9.55 cfm). This can be achieved using compressors with a reservoir of as little as 50 litre capacity.

It will really struggle as tornados are very thirsty. It will be constantly recharging and even then won’t manage to keep up if you dont wait for it.

No way that will run a tornador even with the specs being close.
