Portable air compressors are a great and versatile item that can be used with mechanic's, handyman or woodworking tools with ease. Of all the different styles of portable compressors, pancake air compressors offer the best combination of power and portability for those jobs that just need a lightweight but strong air compressor that can handle most household and garage tasks.
Pancake compressors are compact compressors made up of an oval or pancake-shaped air tank topped by the compressor motor. These styles are easily portable and take up very little space in your shop. Plus, their portable size comes with an added bonus; they are typically oil-free, which means less maintenance work for you. Your pancake air compressor can go wherever you go, whether that is the back shed or up on your roof for a quick fix-it job.
