Senco PC1010 1-Horsepower Peak, 1/2 hp running 1-Gallon Compressor
The Senco Air Compressor PC1010 1-Horsepower 1-Gallon Compressor is an awesome portable compressor that pacts a big punch. Smaller than most pancake compressors, it can be easily carried from job to job. It is most suitable for crafter, cabinet maker, or finish carpenter.
-Perfect for DIYers and for Professionals
Depending on the application you are looking for the PC1010 has a direct drive/pump that is extremely efficient. It also is half as quiet as most pancake compressor motors. That comes in handy if you are working in small quarters. Plus it can work for 128 seconds with only 35-second recovery. The smaller size makes it easy to travel with if you are a contractor and compact enough to store under a workbench. It can change a tire or drive a nail.
-Light weight but Power-Packed
At only 20 lbs. you can carry the Senco Air Compressor 1010 around without feeling exhausted at the end of the day. You won’t be able to finish a roofing project with this as a primary compressor but it will handle small nail guns. The machine is perfect for trim jobs or for hobbies. It takes up less room and is easy to carry with convenient handle placements that are padded. The Senco-PC1010-1-Horsepower-1-Gallon-Compressor is perfect for the woman who loves to work with her hands. Small, lightweight and powerful at the same time, the Senco PC1010 is simply a MUST-HAVE.

-Customer Reviews and Scores
I found 532 customer reviews at the time of writing and they had awarded the Senco Air Compressor PC1010 1-Horsepower Peak, 1/2 hp running 1-Gallon Compressor
4.4 stars out of a possible 5 on average.
The customer reviews on Amazon are positive overall, so a lot of customers said, “This is a great second compressor. I wouldn’t buy this as a primary or first compressor but it works fine to support small nail guns. My other portable weighs 68 pounds and will keep up with 1 to 2 framing or roofing nailers. My shoulders ache from the number of times I have lugged it up 78 steps to a job site. This goes anywhere with a bunch of tools in the other hand.
Other than nail guns, NO it won’t do much at 0.7 cu ft per min when paint spray guns need 10 times that, and a blow gun will empty the tank in 10 seconds or less. But seriously, this compressor gives me at least 10 shots from my 16 ga finish nailer before the motor kicks in; a couple more off of an 18 ga finish nailer, and as an acid test, I got 3 shots from a 3 1/4 inch framing nailer (not recommended but if all I need is 10 nails I’d rather carry this in – especially considering that my ripe old age keeps me from doing much serious hammering!)
Last word, the first one I received had a leaky reed valve and it had to be replaced by Amazon – I’m very happy with the replacement and have used it on several job sites.
