Senco, a fastening tool supplier, recently introduced a series of 200-psi oil-free portable air compressors to its product portfolio. The new line includes two 4.5-gallon units, offered in either a twin-stack configuration or as a roll-away and a high-capacity 15-gallon vertical tank model.
All three units deliver up to 4.9 scfm at 90 psi, providing plenty of air flow and tank storage for multiple applications, including finish and trim carpentry, framing, flooring and more, according to the company.
Product manager David Shumate says the compressors were developed with the criteria that the pumps and motors can easily stand up to everyday use.
“Any of these three are good for woodworking applications, but it really depends on the specific application. The one without wheels is really small and compact so it can be conveniently tucked out of the way. Or, if you are in a situation where you need to be more mobile and move around the job site, the rollaway version is the ideal solution. The 15-gallon unit is better for spray applications because of its higher volume capacity,” Shumate says.
Senco says its 200-psi compressors produce about 40 percent more useable air than 150-psi units. They feature a 1-3/4-hp motor that fills the air tank quickly, thus reducing recovery time.
An oil-free design requires less maintenance and eliminates the risk of leaving oil stains on expensive stock, Shumate adds.
All three compressors have dual couplers for multitool use, a 95-volt start — especially useful on job sites that might only have a temporary electric pole or a generator — and a full roll cage to protect the components.
The twin-stack unit, model PC0968N, weighs about 65 lbs. and sells for $249. The roll-away compressor, model PC0969, sells for $289. The 15-gallon model PC0970 weighs less than 100 lbs. and sells for $329.
Senco will feature the new compressors and its pneumatic tool offerings at IWF Booth No. 7363.
