Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Porter-Cable C1010 1 Gallon Quiet Trim Compressor Preview

Having a full sized 4-gallon compressor for framing and other construction projects is great, but what about the smaller job where you don’t want a larger compressor that takes up lots of space and is bulky to maneuver? For that, Porter-Cable has introduced its new heavy-duty, one-gallon, 135 Max PSI quiet trim compressor (model C1010). This is the kind of tool you want to bring with you to do punch lists and smaller trim work, making it perfect for general contractors, trim carpenters, and remodelers. It’s even suitable for woodworkers, wanting a lightweight tool for furniture assembly.

Having a full sized 4-gallon compressor for framing and other construction projects is great, but what about the smaller job where you don’t want a larger compressor that takes up lots of space and is bulky to maneuver? For that, Porter-Cable has introduced its new heavy-duty, one-gallon, 135 Max PSI quiet trim compressor (model C1010). This is the kind of tool you want to bring with you to do punch lists and smaller trim work, making it perfect for general contractors, trim carpenters, and remodelers. It’s even suitable for woodworkers, wanting a lightweight tool for furniture assembly. We’ll be getting one in for review within a week, so we’re looking forward to putting it through a lot of local projects and testing out its use on the jobsite.


Porter-Cable C1010 1 Gallon Quiet Trim Compressor Features

ThePorter-Cable C1010 delivers 0.75 SCFM (standard cubic feet per minute) at 90 PSI, which is a decent flow rate for most trim tools. Since it has a 1 gallon tank, and operates at up to 135 PSI (max) you can get some decent performance out of it with a relatively fast recovery time (the time it takes to refill the tank back to capacity). The compressor uses a maintenance (oil) free pump, so there’s not much involved in keeping everything up and running and it’s fairly quiet, operating at just 71 dbA – this is a very impressive stat for an oil-free model and one we’re anxious to measure when our review sample comes in. Another thing that’s nice is that the compressor only draws 2.6 amps – and that means you’re not going to trip a bathroom or kitchen breaker if you’re using it in a home where you’re not sure what’s the circuit capacities are.

The Porter-Cable C1010 1 gallon Quiet Trim compressor weighs just 23 lbs and is only 9″ tall, making it easy to carry from jobsite to jobsite. Picking it up is like carrying around a toolbox in both size and weight. It has an integrated roll cage that means you’re going to be able to use this compressor in a variety of conditions without worrying about damage to the tank or its components. Even the air manifold is covered by a metal control panel cover.

Other features we liked include:


  • Ball drain valve
  • Convenient cord wrap
  • Full roll cage
  • Quick-connect port

The Porter-Cable C1010 1 gallon Quiet Trim compressor is available online and at The Home Depot and carries a one-year limited warranty.
