What happens when you add volume to oil-less compressor?

I have a few spare tanks from Craftsman 30gal compressors. (tanks good, motors all shot) Can I combine a few (three) but still keep only one compressor on that system?

It will increase the pump/motor duty cycle - more volume to fill. So it's a good idea to make sure the pump/motor don't overheat. Other than that, I don't see any negatives. Will help keep pressure more stable.

I would use AT LEAST a 3/4" piping between tanks.

Also, put a good ball valve on each of the secondary tanks to keep them from airing down inbetween uses so you don't end up running the motor for 30 minutes each time you start a shop day!

Might be good insurance to take them to a welding supply and be hydro tested. Last thing you need is old tanks that have possibly rusted internally exploding in your garage, and at the minimum ruining your car and damaging your house
