The tank size on the All Power America APC4016-A is 6 gallons. It is a great size for home use and smaller professional use. It can handle quite a load and keep up to power when you need it the most. Although it weighs almost 70 pounds, it's easy to roll on its wheels. It has an easy tow handle so pretty much anyone is able to move it from place to place.


This compressor puts out 5.2 CFM at 40 psi, 4.2 CFM at 90 psi and the maximum pressure is 115 psi. The value at 90 PSI is what air compressors are generally measured at the amount of airflow the APC4016-A provides is comparable to compressors costing three times the price. The 115 PSI maximum pressure rating is definitely on the low end where almost all compressors are at least 125 PSI. It runs on standard 120 volt electric power. It features a 3.5 horsepower engine for consistent pressure for a short period of time.

Pump Type

The pump type on this compressor is oil lubricated. While this takes a bit more attention than the other type of pump, it also makes the compressor last longer. The included instructions make maintenance easy. The oil helps to keep everything running smoothly.

Noise Level

The noise level on this pump is about average. It is not the most quiet air compressor on the market but it is also not loud. If you’ve ever run one of those portable inflators that plug into your cigarette lighter, the APC4016A is actually quieter.

Who It's For

While this type of portable air compressor is not meant for large contractor jobs, it can be used for many smaller jobs. It is perfect for at home use when you need to pump up tires, an air mattress or work with smaller air tools. It is quite useful but does have a limited “full” power stage making it not ideal for larger jobs.


  • Longer life due to the oil lubed pump
  • Protection against thermal overload for safety
  • Lightweight and mobile
  • Compact for easy storage
  • Includes accessories
  • Rubber tires for ease of movement


  • Cannot keep up if using for extended periods of use
  • The handle feels flimsy and a bit difficult to use
  • Keeping up with the oil means you need to use the pump more often to ensure proper working conditions

Final Verdict on the All Power America APC4016-A Air Compressor

Overall the All Power America APC4016A is a good basic home air compressor. It can be used for larger jobs as long as you are aware you need to give it more time to recharge than some others. When you are using the higher psi settings you should take a bit of a break between nails or whatever you are shooting. This will ensure a consistent level of power. It is great for small to medium duty tasks but we're a little concerned with the quality of the compressor. For the price, it's a really good deal but that said we would recommend going with a more proven model such as the Porter Cable C2002.
