I bought the compressor for 60.00 in like new condition today. Very happy! I wanted it badly for running nail guns on the job site. At 35 lbs I really wanted it and it is extremely compact.
About two weeks ago I almost bought the compressor new at HD for 169.00. I talked myself out of it then. Now for 60.00 I bought it in very good condition. The owner explained to me that he buys contents from over due storage units and sells for a profit.
Now we will not have to lug around our high output dewalt that is about 90 lbs. And, even though we are a small shop, the dewalt is the only compressor we owned and desparately needed another compressor.
My only concern is I have heard that porter cable has greatly cheapened the quality of this pancake compressor and it may not be a long life tool. The guys at the shop had wanted me to just go buy a cheap pancake compressor from harbor freight but I am not a fan of that place.
So I am hoping this porter cable is an upgrade over harbor compressor.
