Exactly what I needed!!
I purchased this compressor to keep the tires aired up on my RV. The built in compressor in the RV will not reach the PSI necessary for my tires. This PC fits perfectly in one of the basement compartments when stood on its end, which can be done since it is an oil free compressor. It builds up to 135 PSI in a matter on minutes. I didn't cut the rating to a 4 star for the slight bleeding off as I don't use for the tires on a daily basis anyway.

First Rate Compressor
Great. I've been using it in the house with pin nailer (also purchased at CPO) to set moulding in construction adhesive. Nice not to have to drag an air hose. The unit is quiet and does not require me to use hearing protection.

Porter Cable, and low amp rating, nice
I work 40+ in a furniture shop, and needed an air source in a home shop which the power is supplied via a 12/3 100' extension. My 11 gal comp draws 17V and trips breakers. The low amp on this has ran to full 15-20 times, with lites and radio on, and no problem so far. Finish nail and brad nail away, decent recovery for it's size, just don't get covered in saw dust, takes a bit to get clean.

I needed it for an art project. Silent air compressor wasn't so. That was understanding. It was pretty quiet but not quiet enough for my project so I had to return it. Customer service was wonderful. I will continue to buy things from this company - they truly stand by their products.

I would buy this product again.
Makes doing things in the home easier than trying to use my larger compresser. It was always such a hassle trying to get the heavier compresser to my upstairs roooms.
