There are a lot of portable, single stage air compressors out there; we've tried to round up the cream of the crop for you.

Quincy has been around for a very long time, and this compressor has a cast iron cylinder, crankshaft & valve plate for sturdy reliability that lasts and lasts.

This unit is perfect for small shops and devoted home craftspeople; it puts out 7.1 CFM at 100 PSI to operate a wide range of air tools. The lengthwise setup and fully enclosed belt make transport and... more

Quality Quincy
I had a Porter Cable 60 gallon, I had to down size and found this much smaller 20 gallon Quincy compressor.

So I ordered it on line and to my surprise 4 days later it was delivered by ABF truck in perfect condition. I unboxed it and went through the start up procedures and finished an hour later with a perfectly running compressor with zero leaks.

I have been impressed with all experience including trucking company and driver who delivered this product. Hats off to Quincy and ABF.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Quiet, Light Weight, Exceeded Expectations, Fast, Reliable, High Quality, Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Expensive

Not What I Expected
Wanted a portable compressor to replace my 20yr old Craftsman 25 gal. oil-less compressor. Thought the horizontal style would be more portable than the vertical style but not for me.

This compressor has very slow recovery time and is more of a nail gun, tire inflator than a work compressor. Do not expect anything else. I have used it with my nail gun and it does a great job. Used it with the die grinder and painting- not so good. I'm sure it may last a while but disappointed in the... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Reliable, Made In The Usa
