DeWalt D55167We give the DeWalt D55167 a solid overall rating of 8.6, which is amongst the tops in the portable horizontal class. It ranks very high in max PSI at 200, and with its 4.8 CFM @ 90 PSI. The 200 PSI along with the 15 gallon tank allows you to fill up the tank then unplug it and roll it to where you need it. This compressor is easily portable with its durable handle and wheels and not too heavy at 89 pounds. The coupler and gauges are solid and are easily accessible located in the middle of the compressor.

We highly 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.

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.

Thomas T-635HDThe Thomas T-635HD is a quality portable air compressor that we give an overall rating of 7.4. This unit is very lightweight at just 26 pounds which makes picking it up often a breeze.  It is also very small at just 16.5″ tall, 16.8″ wide and 8″ deep. At 69 decibels it is pretty quiet too.

Having said that, with just 1.7 CFM @ 90 PSI of air flow, this air compressor won’t do much other than run a single brad nailer or maybe a framing nailer.

Customer support from Thomas has been reported to be outstanding and customer reviews are mostly positive for this model.
