Porter Cable 20 Gallon Portable Belt Drive Air Compressor is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 48.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compressor! This compressor is very powerful for the size it comes standard from the factory with 120V set up but I changed mine over 220V It starts better in 220V and run smoother I have broken three oilless compressors in this is one I probably can’t because it oil lubricated and has real filters!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth buying Bought this one when my compressor failed and was going to cost alot to fix. Decided to buy another. This one pumps up quick and doesn't make a lot of noise. Only complaint is you have to draw off a 20 amp circuit or it will trip the braker when it starts back up. No problem on an empty tank and on a 20 amp circuit will start up with pressure in tank.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from An absolute piece of junk Bought this compressor about 2 yrs ago for light duty use.After 12 to 15 uses for short periods of time the motor quit. My motor service company told me the motor was not repairable. Tractor Supply checked on a replacement motor and it costs as much as the complete compressor unit. I got a replacement motor online and installed it but it was extremely difficult due to the mounting base being built too close to the tank. It is very difficult to get tools or fingers where they need to be to remove or reinstall the motor mounting bolts. In my opinion both the operation and design of this compressor from a maintenance standpoint is substandard. Don't waste your money on this unit.

Looking at the manual....wondering if the tank drain valve which is described as a screw type petcock, can be swapped out for a ball valve?

Asked by: nelbruce54
Yes. The valve can be change. The manufacturer also does advised that, any replacement parts that are not OEM will void the warranty.

I know this comes set up for120V, but the Porter Cable site indicates that the one with similar specs can be converted to 240V. Can this one sold by TSC be converted, or is the motor only 120?

Asked by: Buddy49
This unit is fixed at 120.
