Hand-Carry Twinstack Air Compressors

 

Bosch CET3-10
The Bosch CET3-10 is a solid yet unspectacular performer that is designed for job-site conditions. It scored a 7.8 overall rating in our review. This compressor delivers 2.6 CFM @ 90 PSI with 3 gallon tank capacity. It is also pretty quiet at 72 decibels. For protection on job sites, this Bosch compressor comes with a roll cage and a recessed control panel.

One negative is the price versus performance. This model is expensive for its class, yet does not outperform some other less expensive models.

GMC 4610AThis is the quietest compressor you can buy.  Many compressors are simply too loud to even have a conversation when they are on. Not this one. It is super quiet, check out the video below to see a comparison between some other compressors and the GMC.

This air compressor rates very highly across the board and we give it an overall rating of 9.3 which in the hand-carry style is second only to the Ingersoll Rand twin-stack model. This unit is lighter and quieter than the IR.

Overall we highly recommend this compressor if your air flow needs are below 2.35 cfm @ 90 PSI.

Senco PC1131The Senco PC1131 is a great compressor in the hand-carry category, thus we gave it an overall rating of 9.2. To start with it is not too heavy at 60 pounds and its footprint is very small. Another positive it has is at 69 decibels, this compressor is quieter than most other models. With a  4.3 gallon tank and 4.4 cfm @ 90 PSI air flow it will handle a framing nailer with no problem. This compressor is well built with a cast iron cylinder and cast aluminum block to reduce weight and increase heat dissipation.

About the only negative is that air tools with high airflow requirements, like a spray gun, won’t work very well with it.

Customer reviews of the Senco PC1131 are all positive. We haven’t found any real complaints about this model and users recommend this model for a home owner or someone who needs a portable air compressor for everyday use.

Campbell Hausfeld FP209599AVWe give the Campbell Hausfeld FP209599AV a 5.3 overall rating. What drives down this rating is the numerous negative reviews on shopping sites. Overall user ratings on Amazon average out to 3.2 out 5 stars, so there are also positive reviews for the product.

Another negative is that the performance is lacking in this air compressor. It features just 0.8 CFM @ 90 PSI of airflow and very low max PSI of 100. That limits its uses to small jobs with a brad nailer or tire inflation. It is also very loud at 90 decibels. This unit is of average size and weight for a portable air compressor.

As for positives, this unit comes with a brad nailer/stapler kit which includes a 2-in-1 Brad Nailer / Stapler, (500) brad nails, (500) staples, (2) allen wrenches, male plug, 25-ft recoil hose, female coupler, air chuck, inflation needle, inflation needle adapter, and (2) inflation nozzles. The price is also cheaper than other twin stack compressor models that don’t include an accessory kit.

If price is a factor in your search for a compressor and you don’t need to handle any high CFM uses, then this might be a model to look at, otherwise you are better off spending a little bit more to get a better air compressor.
