Will I need anything to pump tires with this?

This would be my first compressor purchase. Sorry if this is a dumb question. We mainly will use it to pump our tires up.
Asked by: VLeppek
Yes, you need a tire inflation accessory. You can buy this separately or there are Air Compressor accessory "kits" where you get tire inflation tip/tools and more !

Plug broke in extension cord can it be replaced?

Asked by: kathy
Yes a new plug can be put on.It needs to be heavy duty with a ground. Take it down to your local Home Depot and I'm sure they can assist you in finding the right product.

Customer Reviews

3.5 Gal. 35 PSI Pancake Electric Air Compressor is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 118.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 135 PSI Porter Cable Air Compressor Purchased this unit for a house remodel project and am about 50% done. Due to arthritis in my wrists I can no longer use a hammer and use this compressor with a palm driver. This reason I bought this particular unit is because my son has had this make and model for several years and has used and abused it. He leaves his unit in the back of a pickup constantly irregardless of the climate and it still functions. I am extremely satisfied with the performance of this compressor and would highly recommend it to anybody who is in the market for one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This is an excellent unit with very fast recovery. I don't understand why they don't sell this unit in the store. They only carry the 6 gallon in the store which is the same compressor with a larger capacity and a longer recovery time. I bought the 3.5 gallon unit because I carry around in my work vehicle to the jobs and its smaller and takes up less space. If you are using this for your home or garage the 6 gallon with work great for you. Just know that if you plan on running one of these compressor off a generator you will need a minimum of a 4k generator if you plan on running anything else at the same time. if you're using an extension cord don't go with any less than a 14 gauge 50 foot 12 gauge 100 foot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value overall but top heavy This is my first air compressor. I bought it to seat mountain tubeless mountain bike tires. I liked its relatively quiet compressor, small size and light weight but that weight comes with a price: it tips over fairly easily. The first time I used it outside, I pulled too hard on it, and it rolled over and scratched the gauge rings. They're both fine, but, if this happens too often, the gauges will be broken. Lowe's has a 200psi, 2 gallon Blue Hawk compressor that seems a bit less prone to tipping, but the capacity is lower. I added a Flexzilla 25 foot hose (from Amazon) and a Husky 12-Piece Brass Air-Compressor Accessory Kit, both of which I love. Overall, this is a great value and should last a long time. It seems to get some of the better reviews here and on Amazon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I got more than what I paid for I bought mine about 4 years ago as a kit and then bought the 16g straight finish nailer to install a hardwood floor and all the appearance trim. The compressor has not faultered, although I did replace the relief as the threads wore out. The compressor still holds its pressure and charges quickly (although very loud). Regarding the nailer, I shot approximately 11,000 nails while installing the floor and had less than 5 misfires. I consider that reliable. If either break, I'll happily buy another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent item especially at this price I have used the Porter cable cpancake type compressors before (owned by others) and always wanted one but could not afford one. The price came down on these just as the compressor I was using failed so I purchased one online. It was deliverdby UPS, no damage in shippng and I went through the break in recomended by opening the water drain valve on the bottom and running it with no pressure build up for 15 minutes. I then let it sit for 1/2 half hour cooling off then I closed the valve and started using it. Works perfectly, no leaks, very quiet compared to others in this class and it's 26 pound weight makes it easy to carry to 3rd floor jobs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I noticed my roofer had one of these. I asked him how he liked it. He said he had his 6 or 7 years with no problems. That sold me. Very pleased so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for what I wanted Performance specifications make this compressor a real bargain. Comparably priced compressors not only seem cheaper but do not have the output capacities of this one. Most importantly, this one can handle all tasks that I might want to use it for around the house. It is easily portable with a handle that makes it very manageable. The small size is nice for handling, and, while not quiet, it can be used inside the house without making ear-busting noise. A very handy and useful air compressor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little Compressor I bought this as a replacement for my HF 125 psi, 8 gallon compressor and this Porter Cable is at least as powerful with a smaller footprint with no maintenance (oil) required. My HF one started leaking oil and was just not worth repairing. I used the new Porter Cable one I got from Home Depot to drive nails through a 2x4 and it handled the job quite well with the heads of the nails sunk in just right. I hesitated to buy it because of the smaller size but it was just what I needed for the job.
