|From the Manufacturer|
New from Porter-Cable! This heavy-duty stationary air compressor has a high-pressure design that allows it to store as much air as a 77-gallon tank. This provides more usable air and longer run times between refills-it's like being able to fit 20 gallons of gas in a 15-gallon tank-you'll get more done! A 7 hp, 240-volt induction motor powers this unit for maximum efficiency. The oil lubricated pump has an aluminum body with cast iron sleeves for durability and maximum cooling. The automotive-style pistons, rings, and connecting rods provide long-lasting reliability. A higher operating pressure of 110 psi start and 135 psi stop, provides more operating power. Supplies 12.1 scfm at 40 psi and 9.7 scfm at 90 psi. A 60-gallon, ASME tank provides enough reserve for heavy-duty, intermittent, multi-tool usage. Includes compressor, tank gauge, and operator's manual.

Porter-Cable CPLC7060V reviews (6)
This air compressor has alot of power, more than enough to run two tools at one time. Was simple to set up (wiring, piping, etc.)
The only drawback that I found was the drain plug on the bottom, it leaked air even after tighting it up.
It is not real loud. Runs smooth. Makes hard jobs easy.
It only took me about 10 minutes to rotate my tires because I had an impact wrench.
It makes me feel like I'm a professional mechanic now :)
My wife is always on me to rotate the tires. Now I can do it in under 6.5 hours!!
Thank goodness, now I've got enough air to last me dozens of rotations and the compressor hardly ever has to come on. We've even tried to really stress it out by blowing up my daughter's pool toys AT THE SAME TIME! :-)
Don't you just love being a neeto "mechanic" with these fancy power tools we appreciate, oh so much?
you can get this at Lowes for 379........
pump bearings leaking after one year of light duty use
after one year of light duty use pump bearing leaking oil and fly wheel belt won't ride true . unit now in shop waiting for parts, down time three to four weeks, had to borrow small compressor from family member. I would not recomend this compressor at all. A better compressor would be home depots huskey 60 gal a much better built unit at 399.00 pump is solid cast iron and the tubing is copper vs alumium that poter cable uses .I think poter cable should stick to building beltsanders, routers,& sawzalls
So far so good
I've had this compressor for about a year and like it. It was ready to go after adding the oil which was included. I bought it when I switched to air tool sanding and it easily keeps up with that job.
The drain is a little hard access. The manual advises you to releive the air pressure though the quick relief valve, automatically down to about 10PSI, then opening the water drain and closing the valve before restarting.
Pleased with compressor but not with Amazon
I received the compressor, but no electrical cord and nothing in the instructions to indicate how to connect it. I called the P-C 800 number and it took another two weeks to get a cord, except it had the wrong connecting pieces. I adapted it to get the compressor running. It's quiet and looks like it will do the job; however, it did not have an adaptor for the standard hose, so I still can't use it. So now it's back to Home Depot to get an adaptor. I'd not usually write this up, except for the fact that I bought a lathe duplicator a couple months ago also from Amazon and it was missing the universal adaptor that when I called the factory, they said Amazon had bought several of the duplicators but without the universal adaptor, even thou the instructions with it and on their web site said it fit all lathes with the adaptor. The factory rep recommended I box it up and send back to Amazon, which I didn't do, but made my own adaptors to fit my lathe.
I've bought lots of things from Amazon and have been pleased overall; however, it appears the tool area needs improvement. It's frustrating to have to make adjustments and/or buy additional pieces to make the tools I've bought from them work.
After I get some experience with the compressor, I'll update this review.
