Rated 5 out of 5 by from This compressor works great!! We really like this compressor. It is quieter than we are used to and really does a good job of keeping up with demand. We definitely buy this again—wish we’d bought it sooner actually.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great portability and quiet I purchased this two weeks ago using my Neighbors Club discount. It is not top heavy like the others I checked out, easy to move around farm and less chance of it jumping out of truck as bar-b-que grills like to do. Provides enough air to power impacts and air tools, also blow guns. I was using the all in one motor compressor types, this is far above those for air service I need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and Powerful !!! I bought this compressor a month ago and am super happy with it. I am impressed by the quality and performance in a smaller and portable package.

Can I increase the (CFM @ 90 PSI: 5.3) rating if I add an additional 30 gal tank?

Asked by: Jimmy73
CFM is determined by the performance of the pump and motor. Adding another tank will not increase the CFM. Adding another tank will increase the amount of stored energy that you have due to the increased air volume.

Can I use this compressor to paint the outside of a 6x12 enclosed trailer?

Asked by: Tdaniels48
The PXCM201 should be able to handle this application. However, you should always use the proper filters and oil separators to make certain contaminants do not get into the paint.

My garage is not heated and I would like to know if there are any start up issues because of the cold. Normally the garage temperature does not drop below the upper twenties.

Asked by: RJM212
This should not be an issue. The pump may be a little sluggish if the temp gets down in the 20s as the oil will thicken up a bit. However, once the pump gets going and everything warms up, it will run like normal.

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?

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