The PORTER-CABLE C2025 is a great portable compressor for use with Prestaflator. At 24 pounds, this compressor is very lightweight. It has a nice carry handle built-in to the top of the motor that is comfortable and in a balanced position for carrying. The small size of this compressor makes it easy to fit in many places. It will fit on the rear seat floor of most passenger cars. A 2 1/2 gallon tank holds air ready-to-go to inflate a few tires even without power. The compressor can inflate tires up to 150 PSI, and with a cut-in level of 120 PSI will always offer 120 PSI or more when plugged-in. The motor is oil-free and maintenance free. Air Delivery is rated as 2.6 SCFM @ 90 PSI. Power draw is rated at 10 amps, so you won’t need a full circuit. This also means it should work fine with a standard 50 foot extension cord. We use this compressor ourselves here at Prestaflator. It’s great to take out for ride and racing events, trade shows and anywhere else when there will be power available at our destination.

The PORTER-CABLE C2002 is a great option for shop use with Prestaflator. The C2002’s Air Delivery is rated as 2.6 SCFM @ 90 PSI. It has a 6 gallon tank. The larger tank offers more reserve so the compressor will run less often than the C2025 under frequent use. A benefit since there’s no such thing as a quiet compressor. At 34 pounds, the C2002 is also a good option for portable use. It’s low and wide, so it’s pretty stable in your trunk or cargo compartment. The C2002 offers two hose connectors so two tools can be connected at once. There is actually the ability to add a third tool connector on the left, however that one would not be controllable by the regulator. It has a handy power cord wrap and offers multiple hand positions at the top for carrying. It can inflate tires up to 150 PSI, and with a cut-in level of 120 PSI will always offer 120 PSI or more when plugged-in. You’ll find this model offers the best street price of the Porter-Cable line. This is due to this model’s wide distribution into retail and internet sales. It’s a better unit than other models costing more. We use one of these compressors as our shop unit here at Prestaflator. It provides all the power we need for tire inflation, parts cleaning and various other duties.

The PORTER-CABLE C6001 is a great option for heavy duty shop use and works great with Prestaflator. The C6001 has a similar head unit to the C2002, but it has a more powerful motor. The C6001’s Air Delivery is rated as 3.3 SCFM @ 90 PSI. The C6001 has a 17 gallon tank offering far more capacity than the C2002. It should allow for many inflations and other uses without the need to run the motor. The C6001 can offer two hose connectors like the C2002, but the second one is not included so you will need to install it yourself. There is also the ability to add a third tool connector on the left, which would also not be controllable by the regulator. It has a handy power cord wrap and offers multiple hand positions at the top for wheeling the unit around. It has sturdy wheels and stands upright to take-up virtually the same amount of floor space as it’s little brother. It can inflate tires up to 150 PSI, and with a cut-in level of 120 PSI it will always offer 120 PSI or more when plugged-in.
