This review is from PORTER-CABLE C2002-WK Oil-Free UMC Pancake Compressor with 13-Piece Accessory Kit (Tools & Home Improvement)
After reading plenty of reviews on various air compressors, I knew I’d buy the Porter-Cable version. I’m a home-owner and am NOT an expert in power tools. But I do enjoy home improvement projects and need to shop for the simplest tools I can afford and take excellent care of them.

That being said, I went out and picked this model up today at Lowe’s for $159. Exactly as advertised and exactly what I want.

However, there are some serious reviews from serious users cautioning of absolutely the NECESSITY of BREAKING-IN your compressor BEFORE USING IT!! Somehow, if you do not break it in properly beforehand, you’ll be literally wrecking your expensive hardware before you even get to use it.

EXCEPT THAT THE OWNERS MANUAL THAT CAME WITH MY MODEL C2002 (Type 5 – I found this in very fine print on the labels on the rear of the tank) SAID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT “BREAKING-IN.” So I did what some reviewers did and searched for a web manual which may be found at this link:…

This review is from PORTER-CABLE C2002-WK Oil-Free UMC Pancake Compressor with 13-Piece Accessory Kit (Tools & Home Improvement)

I’ve used portable work-site compressors of varied types for over 30 years; primarily for pneumatic fasteners and framers. The Porter-Cable pancake compressor is, by far, the sole one that’s truly, comfortably portable, without sharp corners, while at an equivalent time having the PSI and air capacity of six gallons to stay an air-thirsty framer working.

I’m amused by the occasional complaints here and at other sites of the Porter-Cable not having sufficient power for framing nailers, or that the unit kicks in regularly.

Regarding the primary commentary, my response is that this compressor has ample capacity to stay two framing nailers busy, as long as the user understands the straightforward physics in volume air handling. The hose ID is, in actual terms, a secondary stage air tank. The 25-foot x 1/4 inch hose

furnished with the compressor may be a terrific, light-weight hose and suits the machine’s portability. For berating things around the home, and filling tires or delivering air to a…Read more

This review is from PORTER-CABLE C2002-WK Oil-Free UMC Pancake Compressor with 13-Piece Accessory Kit (Tools & Home Improvement)

Was employing a one gallon Campbell Haus compressor. it had been incredibly loud and didn’t hold much air. Using it for filling car and ATV tires. I wanted more air capacity and quite useful. This Porter-Cable six gallon is way better and quieter too.

The additional accessories included with the WK version is a smaller amount expensive than the quality C2002. Very nice unit and well built. Meets all my needs and runs less often thanks to the 6-gallon tank. Delivered on time as promised by Amazon. Well done!
