I have a big compressor that has a bigger tank. Will this work also with ECKO pneumatic tools?2018-12-03T15:20:55+13:00

ECKO pneumatic tools typically run between 90-120PSI (discharge). Some bigger compressors cannot get that high. Also the big compressors drain most of the air causing the discharge pressure to be too low before refilling causing miss-fires. The best compressor for ECKO tools is the ECKO V8 Compressor.
