Product Description ?

This brush is a genuine Porter-Cable replacement part, not generic. As pictured, this brush is ready to install and includes carbon brush, wire lead, and spring. This item is sold individually. Over time, brushes will wear down and eventually require replacement.

This brush will fit the models listed in the 'Compatibility' section below. It is not guaranteed to fit any other power tool models.

• Worn brushes are often the cause of a poorly running motor
• Replacing brushes can fix an intermittent motor
• New brushes can restore a motor’s electric braking


Carbon motor brushes are one of the most commonly replaced power tool components. Because carbon brushes are wear items, meaning that through friction and use they will gradually wear away, they will eventually require replacement. Worn brushes are common causes of intermittent motor function, reduced electric braking, and reduced motor power. A worn out brush will often be worn down near the wire lead and may be cracked, pitted, or burned. When replacing carbon brushes, be sure to also inspect your armature for burns, cracks, or other damage which indicates a larger motor problem.

  • Sold individually (usually two are required)
  • Includes brush, lead, and spring
