Customer Reviews

4 Gal. Portable Electric Air Compressor is rated 2.9 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't Last This is the second one of these that has gone up in puff of smoke. The surface on the motor shaft where the brushes contact it is so thin and apparently weak that after a relatively short amount of time of normal use they just wear away and begin chewing the remainder of the brushes. I am a contractor and have 2 other larger compressors so I am not asking it to more than it is supposed to do. I used it to run finish guns only. As I said this is the second one to fail in exactly the same way after 13 months of use. Steer clear of this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Leaks after little use Used this unit for only 2 hours in one year. Seven days after warranty expired a leak developed in the upper portion of unit. The leak seems to come from a tube that connects to the head of the unit. Seems like this is a regular problem for this compressor ,in other reviews. Waste of hard earned money in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and Quiet! This 4 gal. Air Compress by Porter Cable is a high quality tool for many air required tools/jobs. It is very quiet for a compressor which makes for a nicer work environment. The 4 gallon size (29 lbs.) is great for ease of movement around the job and also for loading and unloading. It has 2 hose ports for using multiple tools at once along with a compressor that has a relatively fast recovery time. This has an "oil free" no maintenance pump! It has a solid handle for carrying and nice cord wrap. It also comes with a 25 foot hose with installed couplers...out of the box it's ready to go! This unit will work great for the PRO or DIYer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke after light usage of about a year. I bought one of these almost 2 years ago, but only started using it this year - light usage on half dozen minor jobs and filling a car tire a couple of times. It developed a leak somewhere in the head and unfortunately I did not have an extended warranty -- mainly because I expected it to last a little longer than that! Buy another brand. Very disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic little air compressor!! This little 4 gallon pancake air compressor comes with 25 foot of quarter inch air hose, complete with MT couplers. 165 pounds maximum PSI, light weight it only weighs 29 pounds, it has tow quick connect outlets and has a handy ball drain valve. This unit is 35% quieter than other models . It is durable, maintenance free pump and motor. I really like this little air compressor because it is lightweight and easy to move around from job to job. I actually put this in our garage for my wife to air up her tires when they get low, and she loves it. It is so portable we use it for an air tank, pump it up at home load it in the truck and travel to our grandsons to pump up bike tires.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from C2004-WK 4 GAL. PORTABLE ELECTRIC AIR COMPRESSOR I kept this in my garage for emergency air purposes. It at times continually kicked on to restore pressure. When checking the front plastic covering there was loads of air coming out. I did discover the fault was at the tubing from the piston to the air tank. Don't know if this a manufacturing error or not. I cannot depend on this was always recycling when in my garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, light weight. This is a great light weight, compact portable air compressor. This makes a great secondary compressor for any small job or emergency situations. It is light enough for my wife to carry outside and fill her car tire or our bicycles, even when filled. It is not very loud and runs with consistent pressure once it is full. I would recommend for anyone who isn't looking for a big job compressor, but one for small function.
