PowRyte Elite 6 Gallon Oil-Free Pancake Portable Review


This compressor is marketed as the best for trimming nailers, roofing jobs, general inflation jobs and blowing air tools. There are two air couplers which enable two people to use it at a time. The pancake tank lowers the C.O.G for optimum stability and portability.

For a 6-galon capacity compressor, it still delivers more air pressure than the All Power America APC4016-A, that is some pretty powerful performance for a portable compressor.

Weighing in at 32.7 pounds, this is truly one of the most powerful compressors in the market. This weight allows you to carry the compressor around your workplace. The size is also not too big. It measures 16×16.4×18.3 inches. This compressor can fit anywhere in your garage.


This product has the capacity to deliver air at a cut in pressure of 120 PSI and a cutout pressure of 150 PSI. You are hence able to drive more powerful air tools. It is able to deliver air at 2.6 SCFM @ 90 PSI and 3.5 SCFM @ 40 PSI. With these, the number of nails you drive shouldn’t be a worry.

The 6-gallon capacity air tank is able to store decent amounts of compressed air for a steady supply during operations.

The power requirements can also be found in normal houses and garages. It requires 120 V, 60 Hz, single phase and 12 Amps electricity supply.

The low Amp motor can start even in cold weather. An extension cord can also be used too in conjunction.

For maximum efficiency, two air couplers which are installed in the factory are provided so that you can accomplish two tasks at a go.

Pump Type

There are those of us who are not mechanically gifted. I mean you hate it when you have to open up a pump to fix something. This pump saves you from all the hustle. It is an oil-less compressor which means that there is no maintenance that you’ll be required to do at all. In case it breaks down, just buy a new one, it is cheaper.

Noise Level

The noise level is unfortunately not provided by PowRyte, but there are some complaints of loud noise from the compressor.

Who It’s For

This compressor works well for compressor newbies. If you frequently inflate tyres, trim nails when doing finishing, roofing jobs and use air tools, then this is your compressor. It performs these tasks efficiently.


  • It performs small jobs efficiently.
  • It offers good value for money as it is relatively cheap.
  • Works with normal power connections. There is no need to make special power arrangements.
  • It is portable.


  • Accessories do not work well
  • Loud under some circumstances
  • Occupies a large area in your garage
  • Threaded connections have to be thread sealed or else they leak.

Final Verdict

This compressor model is an amazing option for someone who wants a portable low gallon capacity compressor. It performs the tasks rather well with the 6-gallon capacity air capacity that keeps the air supply uniform.  This model is better than the previous version in our opinion.
