new 220v air compressor?

Im wanting to wire in a big shop style air compressor at my house. Im wanting to put it right on the outside of the wall from the cloths drier which is on the opposite side of the house from the panel so I was thinking of installing some kind of transfer switch in the wire to the drier so I can switch back and forth from the compressor and drier. this is the motor I will be running:

Marathon Electric® Air Compressor Electric Motor, 6 HP - 3241003 | Tractor Supply Company

I was wondering if this would work?

Double Circuit Transfer Combination Switch HZ10-25P/2 | eBay

If this wont work, any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I cant afford to pay $300-$400 or more for the other transfer switches Ive seen. Thanks

You need to run a new circuit for the air compressor.
