Porter Cable 20 Gallon Portable Belt Drive Air Compressor is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 121.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quieter operation I bought this compressor a month ago after purchasing and returning an upright oil less compressor. The oil less compressor was advertised to quite. Well I’m a sound guy and quite it was not. Standing 10 feet away it showed 95 Db. This Porter-Cable compressor showed 82 Db at 10 feet away. I use it to run a tire machine and automotive air tools and it handles them with no problem. I replaced, believe it or not a 42 year old 20 gallon compressor. This is one of the few 20 gallon horizontal compressors out there. So far I am very pleased with it’s performance. It pumps up the 20 gallon tank plus the tire machine air tank in about 4 1/2 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shop Compressor About 3 wks ago I bought my Porter-Cable compressor from TSC for General work in the Shop & run my plasma cutter. I have an Ingersoll-Rand Big compressor to run a Power Hammer but noisy & to my surprise, the Porter-Cable belt driven was quite to run & a LOAD of power !! Very Pleased & would buy another !!

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?

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.

If this unit is 120 only. Then why does tell you how to switch it to 240?????

Asked by: Moose01
There was an earlier model of this compressor that was able to be dual voltage and the instructions were a standard part of the manual. The manual has since been updated to remove these instructions. The PXCM201 is a 120V only motor.
