Air compressor

I need to replace my air compressor at home. Does anybody have suggestions for me? Are there units I should avoid? Thanks.

I have a Porter Cable pancake compressor that does a nice job but I don't use it for much other than airing up tires. Not very expensive and I pack it away in the 5er so I can air up the truck tires when ready to leave a campsite.

I have a Harbor Freight pancake that I've been using for over 10 years. Airing up tires, and blowing out the water lines in the trailer for winterizing.

I have a 15 year old 15 gallon Porter Cable in the shop (garage) and a 10 year old PC 6 gallon pancake that I carry on extended trips.

This is the one I use too. Works well so far, but mine is only 3 gal, so it cycles a lot...

you don't state what your use would be, this will drive how many CFM it needs to provide and how large a tank it will need to be.

I had one of the Porter Cable 3 gallon one and last year when we got ready to go home each trailer was 20 pounds down and the truck tire were 15 pounds down. To fill 8 tires it took me over 2hours. So I would not recommend that air compressor.

I have this one, Porter-Cable 165 PSI 4 Gal. Compressor, and it works great. I fill my 5'er tires, 110psi, and truck tires, 80psi, in just a couple of minutes per tire.

It isn't a cheap, but it works great even on large high psi tires.
