I need to add a tool to my garage for filling up tires in my tow vehicle and trailer.
I currently use a 12V DC compressor that does the job but is painfully slow and occasionally blows the 15amp fuse for the DC plug in the back of my truck. Its fine for topping off when we are on the road or camping, but I want something bigger and AC for home.
I freely admit a woeful lack of knowledge when it comes to these compressors.
I am looking at:
Porter-Cable’s C1010 heavy-duty one-gallon 135 PSI max quiet trim compressor
. Cost is $99. This is a one gallon tank that yields air at 0.75 SCFM at 90 PSI with a max PSI of 135.
My SUV tires are LT-Cs so they go up to 55lbs or so and the trailer tires are the typical trailer tires.
So my questions are:
Will the smaller compressor with the one gallon tank do fine? Is there any reason for me to look at a 2, 3 or 6-gallon tank pancake compressor?
I'd rather not buy another one in two years so any better options or recommendations?
