2017 Air Compressor Reviews
Unbiased Air Compressor Reviews are Difficult to Come ByIf you are in the market for an air compressor I have good news for you. Today's air compressors are more durable, powerful, and affordable than ever before. The benefits and uses of air compressors are vast. They make many jobs quicker and more efficient or if you are a home owner they make it very convenient for you to keep your tires and other inflatables properly inflated.
The problem lies in knowing which air compressor is right for your needs and separating the good from the bad. One way you might go about researching a purchase like an air compressor would be to ask your friends who have made a similar purchase as you are preparing to make. If you don't know anyone who has purchased an air compressor or just don't trust your friend for their advice, we all have that friend, you might search air compressor reviews. Unfortunately, most of what you are going to find are going to be biased reviews from people who make money from writing reviews and referring you to buy one product instead of another. Or you might land on a page from a company that sells air compressors and of course they are biased leaning towards the products they sell.
Of course we want you to buy your air compressor from us, but we think the best way to do that is by providing as unbiased of reviews as possible and that's what we're going to do here. If we think a certain air compressor is the best but we don't carry it we will point you in the direction of someone who does.
Best Hand-Carry Portable Air Compressors
Rolair JC10 - The JC10 is the quietest air compressor we've come across and features a 1 HP oil-less engine, 2.3 gallon capacity, and delivers 2.35 CFM. It's great for trim work or a kitchen install and for working around people because you will actually be able to carry on a conversation. One down side to the JC10 is that the gauges are difficult to see when it's placed on the ground, you'll have to tip the compressor up on it's edge so you can see the gauges clearly. Other than that, there's not much not to love. Priced at $239 it's a steal. You can buy the Rolair JC10 here.
Best Home Garage or Shop Air Compressor
The Porter Cable PCFP02003 is wildly popular and a great choice for home owners. It's only 26lbs which makes moving it a breeze but more importantly it delivers 2.0 CFM at 90 PSI and can deliver up to 135 PSI which is plenty for the majority of homeowner. As always, we recommend you reviewing the air flow requirements if you plan to run any air tools from your compressor. It also has a 3.5 gallon tank which is pretty large for basic home use which means it will have a longer run time and quicker recovery time. Priced at $99 at the time of this review. Unfortunately we don't carry Porter Cable at this time but due to the popularity of this model you can pick it up at your local Home Depot, Lowes, or Menards. If you want to have it delivered here is a link to it's listing on Amazon:PORTER-CABLE PCFP02003 Pancake Style Compressor(Disclosure: this is an affiliate link and we may earn money when you click on this link or purchase anything on Amazon after clicking on the link)
