Customer Questions & Answers

Will this work with a floor nailer?

I'd like to use this with a blind nailer
Asked by: 911mike
Thank you for the interest in the California Air Tools Ultra Quiet Air Compressors. We recommend that you check the CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) air requirement for your nail gun to operate properly. The CAT1650A (1/2 hp) air volume is most likely too small for a flooring nailer. You should look at a 2.0 Hp, CAT-4620A) model for flooring, roofing or framing nail guns. 5.30 CFM @ 90 PSI. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great with Shoebox compressor !!! This compressor is quiet and cycles like a dream. I fill my portable air tank with it and hook it to my Shoebox compressor to fill my 4500 psi tanks for my air rifles.The controls,fittings and gauge are sweet. Buy it now. It is shipped from California. Worth a little wait !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for airbrushing! Super quiet is the best feature. Great PSI and tank is large enough to do considerable spraying before it turns on to refill. PSI is constant, no fluctuation. Would be nice if it had water filter on, but added one easily. Would recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic little air compressor! This air compressor works exactly as advertised. It is so quiet that I can use it in my basement shop while the family is asleep. It also provides plenty of air for my small shop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compressor for the cost!! I had been researching this compressor for some time before purchasing it. Everything I had heard is true, this is a great set up. I am an avid model builder and I do a lot of airbrushing. My set up with this brush will switch between 2 well known brand airbrushes, one with a .3 needle and the other with a .2, both airbrushes function very well with this compressor. I have already got several hours of operation with this compressor and I have not been disappointed, it has a fast refill rate, and I am able to spray without loss of pressure while the tank refills, this is huge for me as I do a lot of detail airbrushing and fluctuations in psi have been problematic in the past with other compressors I have owned. As you can see from the photos, the compressor sits in the room with me. While it is running I am able to have a conversation with my wife, and I can work into the wee hours of the night without waking my wife or children up. The layout of the regulator was a bit frustrating, but nothing that can’t be fixed with a few extra fittings. I like to run a water trap on my air compressor and getting everything to line up was a bit finicky, but once set it is working great. The compressor is also surprisingly lite and easy to transport. Set was a snap and the overall craftsmanship seems quite solid. Overall I am very happy with this compressor and I expect it to give me many years of service!
