Porter Cable Air Compressors

 

We give the Porter Cable C1010 Trim Air Compressor a 7.0 overall rating. The main thing that lowers this rating is the reduced capabilities that the minimal airflow this compressor provides. With only .75 CFM @ 90 PSI, this model is limited in what it can do. It will handle a staple gun or nailer for finishing purposes, but not really anything else. However, it was designed only to be a trim compressor used on job sites, and it does excel at doing that.

It is very lightweight and portable at just 23 pounds. It is super compact at just 9″ tall which makes it easy to transport and store. With its 1 gallon tank and 135 max PSI it recovers in just 20 seconds. The C1010 is also pretty quiet at just 71 decibels. The metal control panel and full-protection roll frame make this air compressor ideal for a job site as it prevents general wear and tear on the machine.

At a cost of around $99, this unit is good value if used for the right purpose.

Porter Cable C6110

The Porter Cable C6110 scores high all across the board, which is why we gave it an overall rating of 9.3. Its vertical design and 9″ wheels along with a padded handle make it very portable. Many compressors that are this portable are lacking in performance, but not this air compressor. It has a 25 gallon tank with a max PSI of 150. Once the pressure drops below 125 the motor will start running to build pressure. The C6110 airflow is rated at 5.3 CFM at 90 PSI.

The biggest downside to this compressor is the noise. It is loud at 86 decibels. It also will not handle air tools that require more than 5.5 CFM very well. But if you are not concerned with the volume then we highly recommend this compressor.

Porter Cable C2002-WKWe rate the Porter Cable C2002-WK as our best pancake style air compressor with an overall rating of 9.3. It is very portable because it is lightweight at just 34 lbs, small, and is well balanced with a comfortable handle that makes carrying it a breeze. The airflow of 2.6 CFM @ 90 PSI makes it a great compressor for everyday homeowner tasks like tire inflation or blowing dust off your workbench in the garage. It handles finishing guns easily enough, although framing guns can give it some difficulty. The 6 gallon tank and 150 max PSI are more than most compressors of this class and allow for longer run times and add an extra ‘boost’ when nailing into harder wood.

The C2002-WK only draws 10 amps so running it on a standard outlet will not be a problem. Other compressors can trip breakers frequently. It also comes with a 13 piece accessory kit with a 25-foot nylon hose, blow gun and attachments, tire chuck, tire gauge, quick coupler, plugs and Teflon tape.

About the only negative on the Porter Cable model is the noise. It is rated at 82 decibels which is noisy and there certainly are other air compressors that are more quiet.

This compressor is the number 1 best selling compressor on Amazon with a very positive 4.2 stars out of 5 as rated by customers. For small to medium airflow needs or basic homeowner use we highly recommend this air compressor.
