Hello Everybody! Welcome to my blog, I’m Lucy. Yesterday, I went and bought myself a new toy. There’s like three things that I really want for around the house here an air compressor, a wood chipper, and a leaf blower and I went and bought.
The first of those things I went to amazon.com and here’s what I picked up got myself an air compressor. This is a porter cable I think this is 6 gallons and this was 135 bucks. This is a really highly air compressor reviews on Amazon and I think I got a pretty good deal for it all. I was really looking to use it for was to blow out the leaves for my tractor like I kind of take you in here and show you what I’m talking about like?
Overview about Porter Cable C2002-WK
It’d be kind of nice to get rid of all that stuff. That’s under there and just like all the random junk that kind of gets on this every time you. I’d like to be able to blow that off and also my four wheeler here which I haven’t had out for the year yet. It’s got flat tires and stuff on it and this thing’s tires are kind of flat. So be kind of nice to have something that could blow those up a little bit and help me out and I think this thing will be perfect.
It’s probably actually a little bit overkill. I needed six gallons one for that but it’s such a good deal. Because it comes with as you can see down here 13 piece accessory kit included which is pretty sweet. It’ll have all the stuff that I need to do this and I haven’t actually opened this thing up yet. So if you I’ll do that here on post and we’ll see what’s inside here’s everything out of the box as you can see it wasn’t too much in there got the main component here. Which is the air compressor itself?
There’s my dog and here is the court that goes with that and you’re gonna plug that in and then here are all the parts of course made in China like everything else and little doohickeys are in there that. I can use for this. I don’t have much experience and using an air compressor. So I’m gonna have to absolutely use this, which is the instruction manual which comes in a variety of languages.
I’ll probably use the English version and so I’m going to fire this thing up and well. I actually do some reading. First I suppose so I don’t mess it up and I figure out what I need to do to pump my tires up and blow the leaves off. That’s gonna be pretty awesome. That’s everything that came in there and I guess next we’ll see how I can use this thing dude. This is a freaking manual holy crap look at this-this thing is just going on.
I haven’t actually read it yet I just unfolded it but I was a little overwhelmed. I guess there are some photos to go off the pictures. But I might have to actually do some reading here I did read online the important thing. You want to run this thing for 15 minutes with the valve open letting all the air out just as a warmup period. That’s what one guy said on Amazon where other people said that’s not required but I’m going to do it.
The way that I use air compressor
Because I really don’t have anything to lose and I spend a hundred thirty-five bucks on this. So I really don’t want to damage it. That’s what I’m going to do first alright. I got that thing all done warming up it ran for 15 minutes and the air is just coming out of it right now the meantime while I was playing around with these things here. This is probably what I’m going to want to use for spraying off the mower to get all the dirt and stuff off of it so all these elements kind of go together they all go into this.
I figured out that this is the main adapter that I’m going to use basically this is going to go into the back section here like this trying to do it one-handed. That’ll go in there like so of course. It’s not easy to do here threading this in so there it is and then. I’m gonna plug that into there and then this becomes my sprayer and I’m like that what is that? She’s gonna be freaking out when I do this give me a scaredy-dog video, isn’t it?
This is obviously for pumping up the tires which I’m definitely going to be using bro come on and then this is what I would use for a basketball pump. I suppose then there’s a bunch of other little doodads here all to figure out what these are for it doesn’t really say in the manual here. You think in this whole big thing half of this is just warnings on operating it. I guess so they don’t get sued by people which probably is pretty reasonable.
So I’m going to probably be using this with that adapter in there and plugging it in here. So the next operation I have is going to be to start this beast up. If you’ve read any of my post in the past this thing is a mother to get started especially efforts at since probably October. I’m going to try to get this thing started and at least move it out I need to get it from here outside. Because I don’t want to blow all this stuff around in here.
Even though it’s a good bit of a mess in here as it is I mean you look at the woodworking and crap that we were doing building this trailer. It’s a bit of a mess anyway so I’m going to try to get it out of here wish me luck we go. So you push the clutch in pull the choke out. I do the three flicks for good luck. We keep trying that get some choke point I just keep doing that I don’t know if does anything or not but try to jumpstart the battery sometimes that works.
I don’t know that’s gonna do me any good. We’ll give it a shot here all right. I got the battery hooked up to see if that does anything fairly new batteries so it should work. I’m pretty sure there’s a nest of some sorts inside this thing I started up all this crap flu and this is what happened last year frickin something made a Nestle right inside there. Which is probably what the case is?
You smell nest in there what is that mice. It’s our mouse in there. I’m gonna have to really blow this thing out that’s another reason that this thing’s gonna be really nice to have is to make sure I don’t catch my freakin tractor on fire when I go to use it okay here we go. I’ll show you the rig that I’ve set up here. I got the hose plugged in I got the thing on the end like I was showing you a little bit earlier that I’ll just be able to spray this hopefully not that.
I’m really sure of so I’m going to turn this on and hope for the best let’s give it a shot you know this thing is not strong enough to take all these leaves out. I’m gonna have to go in here myself and pull them all out of it that’s what I’m going to do now then we’ll blow this thing out really nice and I think I’m gonna try to take this cover off as well to see what may be hiding inside there. We go take a look at this that’s a mouse nest in their little jerk.
That’s like completely packed in there. You were right this is so bad like this is just packed in here all this Mouse debris and grass and junk in there. It’s like a yearly ritual sighs fair for it but it sucks nonetheless to have to dig all this out of here well. I’m gonna wrap this post up here. It’s starting to get dark out. I found the hugest mouse nest in here and I’m starting to take this thing all apart and hopefully get that all cleared out.

Before I start mowing which is coming up pretty soon. This grass is getting pretty long out here so this is the end of the post. I really love the air compressor worked out really well. Unfortunately, I found a bigger problem inside my mower than what I anticipated I was actually going to start mowing tonight but that’s going to be put off. I’m going to finish this up here hopefully tonight and put them over away and I’ll have an update for you here soon but again recommend the air compressor really nice the porter-cable definitely something. Goodbye!
