Answer to Bad Reviewer who couldn't attach hose or attachments

I have the same compressor/model - different make. It does what it's advertised to do. Great for small framing / molding /trim jobs. To the reviewer who was upset about not being able to hook up the air hoses - DO NOT buy a power tool. If you can't figure out simple things - YOU will hurt yourself. Hire someone with common sense!

Poorly Made

This is an air compressor made by Porter Cable. I bought this one to replace a Porter Cable branded air compressor that died on me after only about 10-15 hours of use. Other than the plastic cover on the top, it is identical to my previous compressor...unfortunately it is the only one that will fit in the space I need it to fit in (operates a paper creasing machine in my print shop). On my older machine, the pressure regulator stopped working first after about 10 hours the machine would keep running building up pressure until the safety valve popped. Then after a few more hours use, the release valve on the bottom of the tank wouldn't seal, so all the air would leak out. The machine that the compressor was operating used probably about the same amount of air as a nail gun, so it's duty cycle was only about 10% (motor was only running 10% of the time the compressor was being used). I'm hoping that my old compressor was just a lemon and the new one will last longer.

Regulator is junk


Needed 150 psi compressor for my nail guns.

OK compressor but regulator is plastic and stripped out on mine after first use. Replaced the regulator with an Ingersol Rand and everything else seems to be OK now.

For the price, OK 150 psi compressor but know you will probably have issued with the regulator.

I wish there was an "unsure" option for recommending to a friend. I would recommend to a friend who needed a 150 psi compressor, but I would make sure he knows about issues I had.

Poor Quality


Regulator leaked from the first time it was started. Obviously no one does quality control on these compressors else they would have known this one did not work. Let it run for 5-8 minutes and never got above 20lbs. Compressor gets very hot while it is trying to charge up which is very bad.
**Would not recommend at all even if it worked due to how hot the unit got**
I am out the time and gas to pickup and return this defective item.

Have had this for awhile and it has worked as expected. Plenty of air flow and pressure for airing up tires and operating my nailers. Being able to move it around easily is a big plus.

Beat bostich hands down


Appears to be made by Porter Cable and Sears has a better price on it than ****** or HD. This unit has met and exceeded all of my requirements in my small shop.

Great for RV tires


Arrived quickly. Used mainly for inflating motor home tires. Does a much better job than the 3 gallon Campbell Hausfeld.
