This is an easy-to-use and portable pancake air compressor from Porter Cable. The six-gallon pancake compressor delivers excellent performance and the two hose connection points are handy. The price is good, and the overall build quality is satisfactory. The knobs on this air compressor feel kind of cheap. It can be used for filling tires, nail guns, and other household air compressor tasks. This is not a quiet unit, though. It has a long hose, and the included accessory kit was handy, but the hose felt kind of cheap and low quality.
The compressor worked great for inflating tires, and the included accessory kit was handy. It comes with an extended high-pressure hose, and the compressor is well built overall. The hose feels a bit cheap, but it has a quiet operation, and the accessories that come with it are great. Very nice quiet overall build design.
It worked fantastically to pump up some tires quickly, but it’s a bit heavy and not as portable as Porter Cable claims it is. Obviously smaller than a full sized air compressor and quieter too. Plus it has an oil-free design. One of the worst things though is the short cable of 3 feet, so you’re going to need an extension cord. Other than that it is a very well built air compressor and the regulator is accurate, and overall it’s easy to use.
