Works well. Nice having a lightweight compressor for the job. Runs my finish trim nailers and pin nailers no problem.
This is a good choice for someone working in a confined space that doesn't need a lot of air volume for the tool they are running. I am using it for a box stapler in a small storage space, so the small tank works fine. It's wonderfully quiet compared to less expensive small compressors and I accepte...
Bought this air compressor because it runs quiet and it does everything my pancake compressor does now but a lot quieter
Super quite good for small dyi jobs lite weight
Ultra light weight, I can lift with one arm completely stretched out. Only wish tank could be larger to hold more air.
I love this compressor. It's super quiet and has good recovery. I use it every day to air up gas lines and it has proven to be very durable. Its size also doesn't take up much space in my truck.
Bought to keep in the RV. Worked fine for <80lb but beyond that it struggles. My RV tires call for 125lb at load. The compressor couldnt get them beyond 110 with lots of coaxing. Dually tires call for 80lb at load, it was a struggle to get those done.
The only dissadvantage of this compressor is that he's me Depot doesn't keep them in stock! On sale but now plus shipping. Vendor reps need to pay closer attention to hotcake sales. I would by more but not if the store will not inventory them.
Compact and very quiet. Worth the extra $$ for these reasons to me.
Great compressor for trim work. So far it works great.
BEING A CABINET INSTALLER THIS LITTLE COMPRESSOR IS EXCELLENT FOR MY APPLICATION.THOUGH YOU CANNOT FLY ALONG WITH A BRAD NAILER ITS LIGHT WEIGHT AND SMALL SIZE MORE THAN MAKE UP FOR THIS LITTLE INCONVIENIENCE.I MAINLY USE A PIN NAILER SO IT REALLY DOES NOT AFFECT ME.I HAVE HAD MINE ABOUT THREE YEARS...
What a great product! Light-weight, fast re-charge, plenty of pressure for my needs. Easily moved from point-to-point while working.
This is plenty good for most home tasks like putting down baseboard and trim. I use this one instead of my bigger one because it's so light. I never have had to wait for it except for blowing air. It won't blow air for more than 30 seconds or so because the tanks is so small. But for any kind of nai...
This is built to last! It's small and light weight. For a trim finisher with a medium to small job this is the one. This is great for a one nailer job. The motor is very quite so if you are in a customers home with them it isn't distrubing to them. It comes with the quick connect already installed o...
I've used this little senco for all kinds of jobs around the house - particularly trim work and recently building a large buffet height cabinet in our kitchen. Everything I used for has gone without a hitch and I really love it! I also bought a senco brad nailer and narrow crown stapler, as well as...
I love this compressor! It is very quiet and lightweight. Perfect for home wood shop, trim work, bicycle tires, etc.
This works great for light-duty jobs such as powering a pneumatic staple guy (which was my intended use for it). However, it is not so good for continuous use, as the tank is fairly small. Pros: lightweight and small enough to be easily portable; good value. Cons: moderately loud, not for extended o...
I was airing up the 10 ply tires on my truck. With 75ft of air hose, it was a struggle to get 50psi in them. I should have turned the truck around so I could have used my shorter hose. Probably would have worked a lot better. Still, I'm very pleased and feel it will work great for my purposes. Very...
Very impressed with the performance of this little air compressor. Has a nice handy handle for carrying and does not take up a lot of room in storage. I follow the directions and not let it just "sit" too long without use. I recommend it highly. Heck of a lot better than the expensive one I had that...
I purchased this compressor for use in our motor home as well as small jobs around the house and horse property. I have a large compressor in the garage for heavy duty jobs, like painting and running air tools, and don't expect it to do be able to do that. In the motor home, I run it off shore/park...
Questions & Answers
Knowledge requested on compressors
I have this compressor and several others. This compressor is too small for what you need. It is light weight and perfect for short bursts of air and small volume applications (ex: small to medium size nail guns, inflating a bicycle tire, inflating a ball, etc). For blowing out water lines, spray painting, inflating big mattress, car tire or pickup truck tire you need something with a bigger tank 20Gal or larger. Don't get me wrong a small compressor can also do these things but the pump will run all the time, you will have to wait 60 seconds for the pressure to build up to use a 3 to 5 second high volume air burst (depending on how much volume you need) and at that rate the pump will overheat and fail very fast and it will take you for ever to get the job done.
Too small, get a 20Gal+ unit to get the job done efficiently (Bigger is better for blowing lines out)
What's the difference between the PC 1010 and the PC 1010N?
The PC1010N has forward-facing gauges, regulator, coupler, and a cut out pressure of 135psi. The PC1010 has a cut out pressure of 125psi and is one pound lighter than the PC1010N.
N = newer model with protected gauges, extra padded feet. Nicer than the none "N"
Will this run a 15 ga nail gun all day?
Senco tools take a “gulp” of compressed air for each fastener drive. Big tools take a bigger gulp; smaller tools use less of a gulp. The technical term for this gulp is “air consumption per cycle”. If you divide the air consumption per cycle into the CFM of a given air compressor you will determine the possible drives per minute. This should give you a clear picture if the compressor is able to properly supply the tool you are planning to use. As an example, the Senco FinishPro 42XP 15-gauge finish nailer has an air consumption per cycle of .0645. The PC1010N at 90psi has a .7 SCFM rating. Therefore, if we divide the .7 by .0645 we get 10 fasteners per minute maximum rate we can fire the FinishPro 42XP with 90psi being supplied from the PC1010N air compressor.
No. It will run an 18g & smaller. 15g can be used but only intermittently.
What is the duty cycle?
Senco air compressors have a 50% duty cycle.
Maybe 3 min.
This is a light duty model.
The compressor does not list the information on unit. The unit will run continuous depending on how much air is needed. This compressor is perfect for small jobs and its light easy to lift and store. I'm am still happy with it . I have used it for tires and even an nail gun on a small job. It will go to the 135psi and will last in tank without cycling to build pressure on small jobs unless your using it to blow air with an air nozzle
Will it run a framing nailer.The specs are .2cfm for the gun.Ridgid 21degree 3 1/2"
I use this compressor for a pin nailer. I would not recommend it for a framing nailer.
This compressor is made for finishing and brad guns. It runs smooth and quiet. It will operate a framing gun but you will have to be patient because this compressor does not have a lot of reserve and does not recover quickly. Hope this answers your question.
Pneumatic nailers and staplers take a “gulp” of compressed air for each fastener drive. Big tools take a bigger gulp; smaller tools use less of a gulp. The technical term for this gulp of air is “air consumption per cycle”. If you divide the air consumption per cycle into the CFM/SCFM of a given air compressor you will determine the possible drives per minute. This should give you a clear picture if your air compressor is able to properly supply the tool you are planning to use.
It will drive a framing nail once or twice with a pause to recover but not enough to do continuous work. Works great for trim work. Love it for that because of light weight.
Yes, this model is compatible with nailers.
