    I put mine in the corner of my shop close to the panel box

    Basement. It's a 5 horse 60 gallon upright compressor. No room for it in the garage and I prefer it to be in a stable temperature. I ran a hard line from the compressor thru the wall into the garage and all is well.

    I put mine outside of my shop inside a lean to with a concrete floor built by the previous owner.

    The exact location was decided because there is a fuse panel right behind where it's sitting...I just tapped for 220 and went straight through the wall with a receptacle mounted on the wall for the compressor to plug into.

    I also screwed it down to a homemade wood pallet with foam cushion to keep it still and help with noise and vibrations
