Portable Vertical Air Compressors

 

The DeWalt D55168 air compressor is an excellent choice for a vertical portable workshop compressor which is why we gave it an 8.6 overall rating. With an airflow of 5.0 CFM @ 90 PSI, a max PSI of 200, and a 15 gallon tank it allows you to handle almost any task you can ask of it including filling up tires, blowing off parts, or running an impact wrench. About the only thing that this compressor struggles with is handling air tools like a die grinder, air sander or rotary grinder that require a very large volume of air.

The D55168’s vertical design means that its footprint is kept small while not sacrificing performance. At 92 pounds it is still pretty heavy and can be a little awkward to wheel around. It is a little bit more quiet than most other compressors at 78 decibels, but make no mistake it is still loud.

We would recommend this air compressor.

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.
