Senco PC1010 Pros

  • Portable. I’ve seen a lot of air compressors that claim to be portable, but the Senco PC1010 1-Horsepower Peak 1-Gallon Compressor has to be the best. This compressor is so light, and the handle is so convenient, that you can take this model anywhere with ease.
  • No maintenance. Since the engine requires no oil, it is virtually maintenance-free. Of course, you still have to keep it clean, but that’s about the only maintenance required.
  • Tough. The Senco PC1010 1-Horsepower Peak 1-Gallon Compressor is surprisingly tough for a small air compressor. Senco apparently put a lot of care into making this a tool that will last for years.

Senco PC1010 Cons

  • Small capacity. The one-gallon capability of the Senco PC1010 1-Horsepower Peak 1-Gallon Compressor means that you don’t have a large tank of compressed air at your fingertips
  •  Not versatile. Due to the lower capacity, this is an air compressor best used for small air tools, like staplers and nail drivers. You can’t use a wide variety of instruments with this model.
