PORTER-CABLE Introduces 17 Gallon Vertical Portable Compressor
Compressor Designed for Tradesmen and Professional Finish Woodworking Crews
(July 20, 2007) – PORTER-CABLE unveiled a new 17 gallon air compressor,
model C6001, with a vertical tank design, increased stored work capacity and an updated shroud for improved performance. The compressor, designed for
tradesmen and professional finish woodworking crews, was introduced during the 2007
Association of Woodworking & Furnishing Suppliers® (AWFS) Fair from July 18 to July
21 at booth #5401 in the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas.
floor space is at a premium, the 17 gallon vertical portable compressor tank, which
includes a water drain valve, has a smaller footprint than horizontal tanks to
take up less space and can be easily stored when not in use. The C6001 is factory-assembled
with two wide-tread wheels for excellent stability and to allow the compressor
to be easily moved.
convenience, the shroud design features a no-maintenance, oil-free pump and low amp, 120-volt universal motor that provides reliable starts in cold
weather or with an extension cord. In addition, the C6001 is equipped with a
console cover to protect controls and vital components; an easy-to-grip,
protective handle; a large 2-inch air regulated pressure gauge for easy
visibility; and a built-in cord wrap.
Ideal for the extended
application of tools requiring low to medium airflow and for shorter burst tools
requiring high burst airflow, the C6001 features 3.3 standardized cubic feet
per minute at 90 pounds per square inch for fast recovery time and 150 max
pounds per square inch for more stored work capacity and longer air tool
performance. The C6001 will be available for purchase in the third quarter of 2007
