    I am a weekend warrior for the most part, so I don't use this compressor every day or even every week.I have to say though, it's been a pretty tough little machine. I've ripped out thick cement walls using an air hammer with this compressor, and while I had to wait now and then (the compressor isn't really made for this load), the machine worked through days of running 8 hours and more under rather strong load.It's also driven a framing nailer very well, for my usage anyway.It is very versatile overall, and easy to transport.Now, after two years the valve at the bottom failed, the drain valve. It leaks air. I am not too happy about that, however, it is apparently replaceable with some elbow grease. The part costs about $2 online, so I ordered 3 of them and will give this a try.If I can give a few good tips for this unit, it would be: After using it, before screwing the drain valve back in, clean the thread off to avoid dirt jamming it up.Also follow the instructions and tilt the tank after work so it can completely drain.Another word of caution, there are TONS of different models of this compressor. Mine is a C2002 Type 3, so my review applies to that.

    Used it once. Let sit and the regulator won't send any pressure.appears to have frozen and nothing in troubleshooting manual helps. Will try to return for one that works

    USed once to inflate tires and did a good job. Hopefully will be able to use to get lug nuts of tires too. Good value.

    Why did I rate this a 1? ...Because zero is not an available choice. Like many others I purchased this unit for light duty use at my house. I followed break-in instructions and did everthing the manual stated like bleed out the tank after each use, etc. I have gone thru 4 units each lasting about 6 months. I keep exchanging this worthless compressor for a new one and each time for a different problem. The regulator failed once, the one-way valve that holds air in the tank after it is pumped in failed once, etc. I have had great success with all other Porter Cable tools including a cirular saw and a router so I can't understand why this is so bad!!! It broke again this weekend so I will now take it back, and like the one review posted prior, I will try to get a store credit and go with another brand. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS PRODUCT!!!

    Hasn't had a lot of use, but sure seems to work fine for light duty work. Very Good value.

    Had it over a year and working fine. I did, however, have to replace one of those tiny rubber gaskets in the air release valve.

    After less than a year it just stopped working. It seems to be a common problem with this compressor.

    Like several others on here I purchased this unit just to use around the house airing up tires and using the occasional brad/nail gun. I got this in Jan. of 2010 and as of today 5/21/11 the regulator malfunctioned. After reading other reviews complaining of the same problem I contacted my local store, told them what happened and that evidently this is a recurring problem with this unit...and they agreed to let me bring the unit back in and either get a store credit toward another compressor, or to get a new replacement of the same compressor. So I'm giving the compressor a 1 and the store a 3. I would not recommend this product to anyone, but I greatly appreciate this kind of customer service from my local Home Depot.

    Over the last 2 years, I've used this a total of maybe 2.5 hours doing mostly tire inflation and some light brad nailing. I've kept it in great shape. The motor died last night after surging a few times. This is the last Porter Cable tool I purchase.

    The compressor works great and builds air quickly. I performed the break in as instructed and got about a year's worth of use out of it. After about 2 months of down time I went to use it and no air was being supplied to the air connections. The tank had 120 PSI but nothing would come out. I found that the regulator is a fauly design and the cost of a new one from the company is more than the purchase price of a new compressor. The fix for all of you that don't want to throw away a perfectly good compressor or purchase a factory part for $130 is to purchase a Husky 1/4" regulator (SKU 401931) supplied at Home Depot in the tool department and purchase brass fittings to plumb the air how you want it. Make certain to pay attention if doing this to allow for a sensing port for the pressure switch or the compressor will not stop running and blow up. If you don't already own this compressor, don't buy it! The only reason I give it 2 stars is that the compressor portion really is great. I hope that Porter-Cable steps up and installs a better regulator as this seems to be a common problem with this compressor.

    I bought the 3 nailer combo in 2006 and have never had a single problem with it. I bought a Porter Cable framing nailer in 2007 and have resided three houses with it (for myself and family). Still going strong. Bought a Porter Cable pin nailer for it this year.Based on my experience, I'm skeptical about the complainers.

    I used this product for one year and it quit working. When it worked it was great, just didn't last long.

    This is a great little compressor, for the money i don't feel bad bringing it back and forth from my truck! I purchased the three nailer combo with it. Also very solid nailers, good metal construction and extremely old-school rugged feel. I have used this thing non-stop since its purchase and it plows through job's.It can handle large framing guns but you may find you'll be limited on the amount of nails you can throw in short periods of time due to fill-up time!
