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.

On RV sites, there is a recommended air compressor selling for $250 (!!) that is also 150 PSI max working pressure which would fill any RV tire.

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).

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...

Hello Rick, As for leaving it on in the winter months, it may be harmful to the compressor , if the moisture that is created by compressing the air suddenly freezes and expands inside the pressure switch, it can cause premature failures, I would not leave any compressor unattended while it is turned on, just in case the pressure cut-off switch fails. I own the same compressor, left it on while unattended in my detached garage during the early spring season, and found it running continuously due to a pressure cut-off switch failure. I haven't any idea how long it was running for when i noticed it, but had the pressure release valve also failed, I would have likely had a pressurized explosion device waiting to cause serious damage to life and property. Also, considering there was not an indication that the motor would shut down on its own, the motor could have become overheated and caused a fire. I hope this answers you question. Read Less

Answer: 
As mentioned already, why would you want to keep it pressurized? No matter if it is winter or summer, you want to depressurize and drain after each use or at least every other day if it is in constant use. As far as winter/cold, it probably won't damage it but it will put a bit of stress on the compressor to get it going. If you can take it in, the better off you will be.

Answer: 
No t100% sure but I'm going to guess yes this is harmful. For one, it's super easy to let out the pressure so you should just do it, especially if you're not using it for an entire winter. Why would you keep it under pressure? Also, when you compress air, it also squeezes water out of the air which ends up on the bottom of your tank. Keep doing that and you'll eventually rust out the bottom of your tank. Read More

Answer: 
I wouldn't recommend doing that. You should drain the tank to get the water out. Otherwise the moisture will be sitting on the bottom of the tank and start rusting the tank inside. This will shorten the life of the compressor.

The owners manual states that you should drain the tank daily or after each use. I would recommend at a minimum drain the tank monthly to make sure there is no moisture in the tank to cause corrosion.
Cold temperatures will cause the different metals to contract at a different rate, so If the temperature inside the garage drops below 40-45 degrees for extended periods, or if the temperature fluctuates over a wide range, I would recommend shutting it off. The owners manual doesn't state any operating temperature ranges. Read Less

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 212 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice little machine but somewhat noisy. After several years of service the "pressure switch" that kicks OFF the unit when it reaches 150 PSI stopped working correctly. It currently stops at approx 120PSI. The switch is located at the other end (not visible) of the black hose inside by the compressor. October 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good size and weight The compressor is doing an outstanding job for our project. Glad I made the decision to go with the te.m October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reliable and quiet This is my second Porter Cable Pancake Compressor. The earlier model served me well so when it came time for a new one I purchased the same model. Runs smoothly and is quieter than the older model. October 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tire Inflator The compressor works great for a carry around tire inflator. I bought this compressor to be portable carry around for my RV tires. It is compact and light weight enough to carry around in the back of the truck to keep my tires inflated. I run 80# in my truck and 65# on the trailer and it has no problems keeping those pressures. It fills up quick and holds air well enough that I air it up at home and carry it with me to maintain air pressure. For the price, this is the best air compressor for my needs. It is fairly quiet compared to some of the small pancake compressors I have seen. August 14, 2016

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Stay away from this unit. I have owned this for a year. I had this unit fail twice on two jobs sites. The first was the drain valve failed and striped out and leaked air. So I returned it for another one. The next unit same thing with the drain and this time the regulator was not holding pressure when shooting nails. I would recommend purchasing the ridgid that is almost 5 stars! September 16, 2016
