Rated 4 out of 5 by from Read the reviews! So far I love this compressor. I am so happy I read the reviews before my purchase. This is the first belt drive compressor i have owned. I found from the reviews to check the belt and other things. The belt was way too tight. The belt was out of alignment. I read from other reviews that the motor and compressor bolts were impossible. So I replaced the alan bolts right off. I adjusted the belt tension and alignment. I found air filters barely tightened and a few loose screws and bolts. I also had no manuals. The store tried to print them from the WEB site but none of the pictures were legible. I called porter cable but they do not supply manuals. Tractor Supply printed them again and all printed fine. You would think after all that I would be unhappy. But I am not. Its a good compressor for the money. PS: Thanks to all who posted the tips.

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.
