Portable Air Compressors: Tested models

Shop Test: Air Compressors

A portable air compressor won't cut, shape, or join wood, but it's one of the handiest tools you'll ever own. You can use it to power pneumatic nailers and other tools in your home, shop, or job site; to inflate all sorts of things; and to blow away wood debris. We like the 3- to 6-gallon size for its all-around usefulness, ease of moving from place to place, and affordability. Here are the 11 models we tested.
