Answer: 
I use it to air my truck tires to 80#. It can be used to top tires off but it will equalize at about 80# tops. It will only hold 120# so you could only air up one tire unless you are plugged in so it can recharge.

Answer: 
Yes you can. I have used mine to inflate the tires on a sweeper truck I drive to 85 psi with no problems whatsoever. The only problem I got is that the tires have a slow leak in them but then that was the whole reason for getting the compressor.

All you will need is the right head to put on the compressor hose to fit the truck tire. Might be a larger valve stem than a car version. I found a good variety of them at Home Depot too!

It's a 150 psi compressor, so depending on what type of tires you have on your truck it may be able to cause them to explode (blow up).

Answer: 
No, manufacturer's website. Probably better just buying a new one if you need to replace anything major. Similar to all products these days. For some reason it's cheaper to buy an entire new unit over just the part you need. Wonder why our country has become such a "throw away" mentality. Cheaper to buy new than to replace. Sad...

Answer: 
Hi Randy;
I dont know if it specifically needs a "Break In", We played around with it the first day, trying it out on different things, before we put it to work on nailing flooring.
I suppose while my husband was toying with his new toy, it allowed seals to be seated properly before a load was put on it.

After reading TONS of reviews on various air compressors, I knew I'd buy the Porter-Cable version. I'm a homeowner and am NOT an expert in power tools. But I do enjoy home improvement projects and want to buy the best tools I can afford and take good care of them.
That being said, I went out and picked this model up today. It was exactly as advertised and exactly what I need.
However, there have been some serious reviews from serious users cautioning of the ABSOLUTE NECESSITY of BREAKING-IN your compressor BEFORE USING IT!! Somehow, if you don't break it in properly beforehand, you may be literally wrecking your expensive hardware before you even get to use it.
EXCEPT THAT THE OWNERS MANUAL THAT CAME WITH MY MODEL C2002 (Type 5 - I found this in very fine print on the labels on the back of the tank) SAID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT "BREAKING-IN." So I did what some reviewers did and looked for an online manual which can be found at this link: [...]
Bottom line is that breaking-in your compressor is MANDATORY, but it's also a cinch.
Here's the exact wording from the online Porter-Cable manual:
Break-in Procedure
Risk of Unsafe Operation. Serious damage may result if the
following break-in instructions are not closely followed.
This procedure is required before the air compressor is put into service and when
the check valve or a complete compressor pump has been replaced.
1. Make sure the On/Off switch is in the "Off" position.
2. Plug the power cord into the correct branch circuit receptacle. (Refer to Voltage
and Circuit Protection paragraph in the Installation section of this manual.)
3. Open the drain valve (counter-clockwise) fully to permit air to escape and prevent
air pressure build up in the air tank during the break-in period.
MY NOTE: this is sort of counter-intuitive as you want the valve to screw UP
toward the tank - giving the appearance of being closed when it's actually open.
You will quickly realize whether you're right or not because you WILL hear the
air blowing out the valve. No blowing air?? Turn the screw the other way.
4. Move the On/Off switch to "On" position. The compressor will start.
5. Run the compressor for 15 minutes. Make sure the drain valve is open and
there is minimal air pressure build-up in tank.
6. After 15 minutes, close the drain valve by turning clockwise. The air receiver
will fill to "cut-out" pressure and the motor will stop.
The compressor is now ready for use.
Bottom line: open the drain valve to prevent pressure from building up.
When you turn on the compressor, it will blow air out the valve.
Run for 15 min. Basically a "dry run." No pressure.
After 15 min, screw the valve the other way to close it and let
pressure build up until it shuts off.
You're all set.
Thanks to all the guys that took the time to warn me ahead of time.
I'm grateful and hope this post will remove the boogieman of breaking-in
your new compressor.

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 200 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Worth the money but very loud The first one I got leaked, the tank seal would slowly loose compression. I had to take it back but got it exchanged, I was for the most part happy with it once I started using it. Its got enough pressure to run my air gun and small air tools. My only critique, is that its a very load compressor. Its not one you could use in doors without ear protection. If your looking for a compressor you use once in a while, this would be a good fit. Its affordable, and so far is working well. I have only had it a couple months so I can't speak to its longevity. August 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Works great until it breaks.. Broke after 1 year.. The drain plug is such a bad design.. always leaks, I had to put a real valve on it. August 9, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Portable Air Compressor The air compressor is easy to use. It isn't super heavy so you can easily haul it upstairs to work on your second level flooring. It isn't unbearably noisy either, so you can work for several hours with it kicking on and off without a headache. We bought the compressor to power our floor nailer; it does a fine job with that. If you need a compressor to blow up a car or truck tire, it isn't going to do a satisfactory job. It is slow with a car tire and it doesn't have enough compression to air up a truck tire. But it is good for bike tires. If you need a lot of air compression you should go with a larger air compressor. If you just need it to drive nails, push paint, blow up balls and bike tires, this will get the job done. Finally it doesnt take up a lot of room, it is small so you can easily store it and it will be out of the way. July 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This device works great when its new - Not a quality item for limited use I purchased this product back in 2012. I've used this product a handful of times and maybe 10 times, limited use. Its 2016 and needed my porter-cable pancake compressor for a small job of nailing down a hardwood floor in a classed for a recent conversion and the screw behind the regulator blew off as pressure was building in the tank. The screw was stripped and could not be screwed back on. I contacted the manufacturer who states no recall on this item and pointed me to a local facility to repair the compressor. I described the problem to the technician at the repair facility and said that the part and labor will be a little over $100, which is the cost of a new pancake compressor. Very disappointed with this product for its poor liquidity regulator. **** PLEASE DON"T BUY this compressor unless you like to buy new tools every few years. August 1, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great Little Compressor IF They Would Fix Regulator Design This is a lightweight, convenient little compressor with enough capacity for a pretty big range of jobs. However, right out of the box it had issues with the output regulator acting up. Setting it at 90psi for my nailer, it would randomly stop adjusting back up to set limit, and my nails would end up not driving. Sometimes it dipped as low as 40psi without the pressure kicking back up. When that happened, I had to adjust regulator knob to get it back to 90psi, but then, several nails later it was up to 120psi! Adjust back down and start all over. Pretty maddening in the middle of a job. If Porter Cable would fix this known regulator issue (I wish I had read reviews before I bought), I would love and recommend this compressor, but as is, it is too much trouble to be worth it. July 12, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not so hot Not enough air storage. Compressor runs continuously when in use. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Portable Air Compressor I bought this to power a finish nailer and also as a quick portable source of air for car and truck tires. The compressor/motor is relatively quiet and brings the tank up to pressure in a reasonable time. Plenty of pressure for the air nailer and easy to move around. Great for adding air to the car and truck tires. Beats firing up the big compressor and running a long air hose out the garage. Overall a good purchase. July 27, 2016
