Rated 5 out of 5 by from New compressor Will like it because it’s easy to move around light weight heavy duty just what we need

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty color, but...... I bought this product to replace and old one that developed a hole in the tank. it is the same capacity as the old one, but lightweight in recovery and seems to take way too long to fill. I just use it to fill tires on my farm equipment. It doesn't have enough air to use an air nozzle on it to blow out chaff. Not very impressed, but keeping it because it will work to fill tires if given enough time and it is too much trouble to return. And, yes, I know that TSC will refund if I return it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I will let you know I bought the first one, got it home and lower leg was damaged. Would not stand upright. Took it back and traded it for a second one. Got that one home, hooked everything up, plugged it up, thought everything was fine until it started leaking oil all over the place. I’ll be taking this one back tomorrow. Maybe the third time is a charm.

What is approximate amp draw at cut-off?  Or does this require more than 15 amps.  Sizing off-grid power for this.  Its what TSC customers do, right?

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.

I just bought PXCML224VW on 24 May 2018. I am trying to register my product on the Porter Cable website and it does not pull up the product. I am not sure I received all the appropriate literature with my product. What do I do?

Mine did not come with a cap for the oil fill in the compressor. Should it be a plug or a breather?

the oil that came with the compressor was semi synthetic and not quite enough to get it half way between the red dot on the oil sight gauge, can I use a synthetic compressor oil to top it off ? It's a model number pxcml224vw

Asked by: matt24
Halfway up on the red dot is considered full with oil. However, if you need a little more oil in the unit, you can use synthetic oil.

Can this be transported laying down or does it have to stay in a up right position?

Asked by: Dtky
This compressor must be transported upright and strapped in to prevent tipping over.
