Think that this compressor could keep up with one nailer?

2 CFM at 90 PSI with a two gallon tank

Simple answer is no. A roofing nailer needs more air storage.

It will work but barely adequate, you will notice when laying shingles in the open field.

If you use a cap nailer/stapler for your underlayment this will not work for that.

You need to find another one.

This is the bigger brother of that model. 3 gallon instead of 2 gallon. 2.6 cfm at 90 psi instead of 2 cfm at 90 psi. Perhaps this could be a better choice.

It depends how fast you nail…general answer no. I have the bostitch trim air, bought it for doing carpentry work but have used in a pinch for roofing gun on smaller cut up jobs without a problem. Too small for the fraiming nailer unless you get paid by the hour, have a cup of coffee with you and smoke.
