Senco portable air compressor review by mytoolkit

Senco Portable Air Compressor

We are regularly asked about portable air compressors.

So looking at such a model that fits the bill. I am going to introduce  the portable PC1010N model from the Senco range.

This compressor  has the power for upholstery staplers/brad nailers. Yet weighs less than 10Kg, hence it can be very easily transported.

First Impression

Way back, when the first delivery arrived here at My Tool Kit, I was truly amazed at the compact box size of this unit and immediately knew this would be a hit for upholstery work and general DIY.

This compressor is well designed, very compact and easy to use – just plug in – switch on and away you go.


The 3.8 Litre tank capacity and 0.5 hp motor gives great portability but enough power for upholstery staplers and brad nailers. So if you are working in confined spaces fitting out that boat, caravan or upholstering those new dining chairs this unit is just the job.





Chuck rating 4


This 240volt portable air compressor is a very welcome addition to our range in fact it is one of the 2 that we decided to stock longer term. As compressors are not really our thing, we had to be particular about this.

So if you are that interior designer, master craftsman, or the DIY super hero, this compact bit of kit with a 4 Star Chuck rating is just for you.

Until next time.

Take Care,
