About a week and change after posting our first article on the beginnings of our compressor test, we found two things. We’d missed a few brands that needed to go along with that test, and we’d have to wait a little to get them and put them through the same ringer the rest of the field endured. In that spirit, a Bostitch, a DeWalt, and a Porter Cable compressor joined the cast of competitors.
The Bostitch CAP2060P Pancake, DeWalt D55151 Twin and Poster Cable c2004 Pancake became the fashionably late newcomers to compressor hell. Yet again we broke out the testing gear and started with our basics chart.
Interestingly, the very models that readers pushed in email and blog comments for us to pit against the rest of the field fell squarely into the middle of the basic charts measurements range. It would prove to be an even more interesting outcome later on in the testing.
Next time in the compressor testing, finally, we can get on with the nitty gritty: features and performance of the now eight shop compressors.
