What experts liked
Takes just 67 seconds to fill it's tank. Most machine takes several munites.
- BestReviews
In term of efficiency, the product is definitely reliable. A lot of people have discovered that air-powered tools produce more force than the standard ones. I feel also feel very lucky to have found this great ally when working on my old home and changing some of its parts little by little, depending on my budget.
- Miranda Made
As far as sound, the Senco PC1131 is rated at 77 decibels and is actually one of the quieter pumps out there. With the amount of airflow it provides, you'll be hard pressed to find a quieter air compressor.
- Best Air Compressor Reviews
The cast-iron sleeve and cast-iron head cylinder keep the air compressor running for much longer run time.
- Pro Tool Zone
The first and probably some of its best features are the direct drive pump and induction motor as they provide an efficient and more reliable operation.
- Wood Working Toolkit
Quick recovery time from 90 PSI to 125 PSI is typically around 16 seconds only.

The handle above the compressor lets you carry this compressor into your truck and around the job area and the garage. For your garage, this is a good piece as long as you don’t want to move it around much.
- Toolez
What experts didn't like
Sometimes has trouble starting outside in cold weather,but if you take it indoors to warm it up a little, it's trouble free.
- BestReviews
A few not so good feedbacks about the product revolve around its heftiness because some people were expecting it to be very lightweight.
- Miranda Made
Twinstack engine makes it a little more difficult to store.
- Best Air Compressor Reviews
Doesn’t work well in weather below 32 degrees.
- Pro Tool Zone
Inconvenient pressure gauges placement.
- Wood Working Toolkit
The major issue with the Senco PC1131 is that it’s fairly heavy at 60 -pounds. It doesn’t even come with wheels that would have made it easier to carry.

Hard to carry.
