Best Buy For The Money
I was pleasantly surprised how well this handled my little 110 lb sandblaster though I have to admit that I blast under 90lbs psi. so that may account for the fast recovery.

As far as any other air tool I have thrown at it the performance has been flawless. No complaints about hook up or plumbing in a drain petcock.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, Fast

"Air Compressors Direct fulfilled all that was stated in the purchase. Though due to my missing an important note about full size semi delivery I was forced to arrange alternate pickup arrangements. So read all shipping instructions closely."

Ken,
Factory Warranties cover defects in materials and workmanship for a set period of time, in this case 1 year of consumer use. Since you purchased your unit from Tractor Supply instead of us (Air Compressors Direct) I'm sorry- we're not allowed to intercede in your case.

You may want to call the folks at Porter Cable at 888-848-5175 to see if they can reconsider your claim, just please be sure to have the serial number of your compressor handy when you call.

An Upgrade I Am Very Happy With!
Shipping was on time and the compressor arrived undamaged. It has performed as I anticipated and expected from the reviews and the fact that my neighbor had the exact same one which they also were very happy with it's performance.

I went from a small China-made compressor that never performed well and had a short life span after it just basically fell apart, giving me the incentive to purchase the Porter Cable Compressor.
Pros: Reliable, Durable, Price, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: None

"Ordering was easy, customer service right on the money, and you couldn't ask more for the coordination on the shipping. I live on a private road in the woods near a lake where semi-trailers cannot traverse because there is no place for them to turn around. Coordination was made with the trailer truck driver and I met the truck approximately 3/4 miles from my house at a boat launch site with my tractor and a set of forks. Comment from the driver... "guess you are going to make this a very easy transfer", which it was. Great experience.."

Not The Least Expensive, But Still A Good Value
I had a Porter Cable compressor for nearly 14 years and it was great. It stayed with the house when I moved and I needed a new one.

My previous compressor was 5 HP. The new one is listed at 3.7 HP but pushes more air than the old one. It is not quiet, but I find it hard to believe that anyone could say that an air compressor is quiet.

The tank fills pretty fast and that's nice. It had no problem keeping up with some of my air-gulping tools, but that was no surprise.

I would... more

Fine Large Compressor For The Money
I've only had this compressor for a couple weeks but as far as I can tell it is all I hoped it would be -- a large tank and high CFM at 90 PSI for a relatively small amount of money.

I don't have to run a compressor all day long, but when I need to run it (using an air hammer), I need for it to keep up with me so I don't have to wait for it. This is meeting that need fine at a price I could reasonably afford.

Also, my background is woodworking -- and in that world, Porter Cable is a... more

Porter Cable Air Compressor
Hooked up the electrical and it works just like advertised. Nice air compressor.

I would advise people to contact Air Compressor Direct to get freight information. It took over 2 weeks to get my compressor, and I had to reach out to the freight company to see what was going on as there was no tracking information on the Air Compressor Direct website, and I had never been contacted by either company.
