Easy on the arm!, November 3, 2006
Bob Hagen "tool hound" (Seattle, WA USA)
As a general contractor I have several compressors. At least 90% of the time I grab an Emglo because they do everything I need except texturing. But I've grown fond of this little Senco WHEN IT IS USED PROPERLY! That means if I have a small trim project or a VERY small framing project it does the job, and both takes up less room and is a lot easier to pack around. It'll drive 3" framing nails no problem...when the tank is topped off, but the last couple nails before the compressor cycles always need to be hammer finished. Same is true for 15 or 18 gauge finish nails. When the tank is just about to cycle the nails don't completely set. My workers love the Senco...much to my chagrin. For one, it's light, and takes FOREVER to refill (relatively speaking) and my guys love to stand there with their thumbs you know where taking a break every 10 to 15 nails or so! So if used for small jobs...or trim where you nail one piece at a time while cutting, well then it's a champ.

This is a great second compressor. I wouldn't buy this as a primary or first compressor but it works fine to support small nail guns. My other portable weighs 68 pounds and will keep up with 1 to 2 framing or roofing nailers. My shoulders ache from the number of times I have lugged it up 78 steps to a job site. This goes anywhere with a bunch of tools in the other hand.
Other than nail guns, NO it won't do much at 0.7 cu ft per min when paint spray guns need 10 times that, and a blow gun will empty the tank in 10 seconds or less. But seriously, this compressor gives me at least 10 shots from my 16 ga finish nailer before the motor kicks in; a couple more off of an 18 ga finish nailer, and as an acid test, I got 3 shots from a 3 1/4 inch framing nailer (not recommended but if all I need is 10 nails I'd rather carry this in - especially considering that my ripe old age keeps me from doing much serious hammering!)
Last word, the first one I received had a leaky reed valve and.

Preliminary testing is 5 stars, December 26, 2012
Jonathan Brett
I am a kitchen bath remodeler, and have yet to use this on the job. I have, however, done some preliminary testing in my garage tonight. The results are stated below.

My first impressions are all positive: Better quality than expected at this price (great value). Smaller (better) than expected. Quieter than expected. Now for the tests.

Quantity of nails shot with various nail guns before motor kicked on, using this Senco PC1010:
23 gauge = 20
18 gauge = 10
15 gauge = 5
Framing nailer = 3

To give a comparison to a larger pancake style 4 gallon 1.5 HP Campbell Hausfeld that I have been using for 15 years, which weighs more than twice as much (52 lbs.):
18 gauge = 40
15 gauge = 18
Framing = 13

Obviously, these numbers coincide with the number of gallons of compressed air, as the 4 gallon unit delivered approx. 4 times more nails than the 1 gallon unit. No surprise here.
