PORTER-CABLE Introduces Air Compressors Designed for
Professional Woodworkers and Trim Carpenters

PORTER-CABLE introduces two new air compressors specially designed for the needs of professional woodworkers and
trim carpenters. The lightweight, easy-to-use air compressors, models C2002 and C2002-WK, are designed for any work by someone that requires intricate detail and accuracy, including base boards, chair rails, crown moulding, window or door casings, cabinet or stair trim, upholstery and furniture assembly.

The six gallon compressors, models C2002 and C2002-WK, feature 2.6 standardized cubic feet per minute at 90 pounds per square inch and 150 max pounds per square inch for longer air tool performance to easily support a two-man trim carpenter crew. Weighing only 34 pounds and equipped with a sturdy, ergonomic handle, the compressors are easy to carry and feature a no-maintenance, oil-free pump and 10 amp 120-volt motor that provides reliable starts in cold weather or with an extension cord.

The pancake style tank of the compressor, along with the rubber feet on the bottom, provides excellent stability while in use. For added convenience, the compressors also feature two air couplers to support two nailers, along with a console cover for the controls and a shroud with built-in cord wrap.

The C2002 is the base compressor, and currently retails for $179. The C2002-WK features a 13-piece accessory kit, which includes a 25-foot air hose, blow gun, four inflator adaptors and a five-piece kit with OSHA safety nozzle, and retails for $189.
