Porter Cable 20 Gallon Portable Belt Drive Air Compressor is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 321.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang for your Buck. I have a small home shop where I use automotive and woodworking air tools. I looked at several different compressors before purchasing the Porter Cable 20 Gal and was torn between an upright or horizontal unit. After reading reviews on all I decided to purchase the PC as it received good reviews and I felt the best buy for the price. After several weeks of use I am very satisfied with the operation. It is fairly quiet and builds air quickly. It worked as it should with no leeks from the minute I plugged it in. I would recommend this compressor to anyone looking for a 20 gallon portable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good compressor Haven’t used it much but so far I’m happy with it. Very quiet compared to most. Seems to build air quickly. Only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 is because it had a small air leak. Nothing a little thread tape didn’t fix but it’s a shame it came from the box that way. Not a huge fan of the plastic on/off switch but seems they have all went to that. I would recommend it it for light duty use.

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.

is it 110 volts or 220 volts

Asked by: cody1955
Standard 120 V, 60 Hz power supply with at least 15 amps will be sufficient.

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.
