Compressors are already fantastic machines, so why wouldn’t you want to take all of their benefits on the road, to just about anywhere? There is a myriad of benefits that portability can provide to your home or business. For example, portable air compressors can provide compressed air to tools on construction sites, where access to electricity may be limited. Since they are lighter and smaller than regular air compressors, they are great to take on long distances to the most remote destinations.

Less Noise

Standalone compressors can sometimes be noisy, and therefore be a bit disruptive in residential areas. Due to their smaller footprint and lower power use, portable air compressors produce significantly less noise. 

If you plan on using a portable air compressor in an indoor workshop, their lower volume eliminates the need to wear earplugs.


All portable air compressors are inherently more compact – after all, they must be easy to transport! Further, they are lighter than a typical air compressor, meaning you won’t spend a fortune while transporting them. 

Flexibility & Usability

Portable air compressors bring all the best features of standalone compressors to anywhere you need. They can supply air to fuel ratchets, nail guns, air hammers, staple guns, air chisels,  impact wrenches, paint sprayers and grinders, and a myriad of rotary tools. If you have any air needs whatsoever, portable compressors can probably help. 

The following industries can benefit from portable air compressors:

  1. Construction
  2. Manufacturing
  3. Agriculture
  4. Oil & Gas
  5. Pharmaceutical



Since portable compressors need to be transported across various distances, through different types of weather, and through constantly changing road conditions, it is extremely important that they are durable and flexible enough to withstand these environments. 

For example, Kaeser’s MOBILAIR portable compressors, feature a “heavy-duty chassis and canopy design to provide excellent protection from corrosion and the elements” to protect them from the elements. You can ensure that your portable compressor will arrive safe and sound to your destination and perform to its highest caliber.Overall, portable air compressors can drastically improve your experience using compressed air in the most distant or inaccessible places.
