Question about Porter Cable Air Tools & Compressors
When searching for a tool or machine part at eReplacementParts.com, the product's model number and type number are always necessary to ensure an accurate part match. Even when a model or type number is only different by one digit, the parts for that model or type may not be compatible with other models and types.
Each manufacturer uses a different model and type number system, and manufacturers often call type numbers by different names. Some type numbers are especially difficult to find on the tool or machine.
This article provides explanations and pictures for finding model numbers and type numbers for several tool and machine brands, making it easier to order the right part for the right tool.
Explanations are listed below alphabetically by brand, but first, some additional information about model numbers and type numbers will be helpful.
Model and Type Numbers
Model numbers distinguish a manufacturer's models for a certain kind of tool within a given tool category (like drill/drivers and nailers). For example, two different power sander designs from the same brand would be distinguished by having two different model numbers. This is true for every b rand, that they separate major designs by model number.
However, manufacturers often update the design or features of a tool model, creating types of tools with the same model numbers. Most manufacturers distinguish the different types of a tool model from one another by assigning type numbers to them in addition to the tool's model number.
This is where it gets tricky. Finding type numbers for tools can be difficult because of the following reasons:
In general, when searching eReplacementParts.com for the right model number and type number of a tool, the most important idea is just to match all numbers displayed on the webpage (under that tool's picture and name) with the numbers on the product.
On eReplacementParts.com, type numbers are displayed under the tool picture to the right of the model number. Sometimes type numbers are displayed in parentheses, like "(Type 1)" or "(0601916460)". Models that are not assigned type numbers will not have a type number displayed on the web page.
However, we will often list "Type 1" or "Type 0" for the first redesign of a tool model in a type series, even if the manufacturer does not list "Type 1" or "Type 0" on the name plate. This makes it easier for our customers and us to tell the first type apart from the rest.
