Porter-Cable 24-Gallon Portable Air Compressor is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 442.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from THREE YEAR REVIEW: So far so good! I bought this compressor at a Black Friday sale three years ago. I use it for a few hours per day, about half of the weekends out of the year. This unit is still going strong- I attribute that to the proper break-in procedure, which I describe below. Three things to note: 1. The drain valve is NOT the typical "screw in" type valve on consumer-level compressors. This is actually a ball valve with a knob on the side. It is MUCH better than the screw-in type valves. 2. Winter usage: some reviews report that the compressor doesn't work properly in cold winter months. I have a propane radiant heater near the compressor that I'll fire up about a half hour before I intend to use it. This seems to help quite a bit. 3. Breaking it in: there is nothing in the manual about a break-in period. In my opinion this is something you need to do. In my case, the compressor oil was a very light transparent yellow as it came out of the bottle; when I changed the oil after a break-in run, it was an opaque dark blue. To do a break-in I first filled the compressor with oil. Then I opened the drain valve and put a male fitting in the output, so that it would not build any pressure. Then I ran the compressor for 20 minutes. Finally I changed the oil. (I had to go buy another bottle of oil, because the oil provided with the compressor wasn't enough for two fills.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy and capable. Great compressor for my garage and shop. Works all of my tools, haven’t had any issues with it. I just changed out my F250s front rotors. 8 lugs aren’t a problem.

This can be laid down for transport when purchased. It is an oil lubricated unit but the oil is not installed at production. A bottle of oil is included with the unit to be installed once you are ready to use it.

Can you install another muffler on it to make it quieter? If so, any recommendations?

We do not recommend altering the Porter-Cable 24-Gallon Portable Air Compressor in any way. This could void the warranty or damage the tool.
