"Tricking" the compressor is the problem with my larger 125 PSI 6 gallon tank shop compressor - it's lower "kick in" PSI is about 80 PSI, so when I'm wanting to air up the tires to 90 PSI or better, and the compressor kicks off, it won't restart, and the tire isn't aired up to the PSI I want, and I had to "trick" it into restarting and completing the job.
The Craftsman (Sears) unit cycles between 125 and 150 PSI, so continues to run until I have reached the PSI I am wanting in my tires - and the CFM has also proved to be entirely satisfactory as well...
