Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Used in dental office. Quietest compressor we've heard. Easy to work with. After being given a quote for $6000 for the dental standard oil-free compressor by DCI, I called up California Air Tools about this air-drying compressor. I've had great experiences with other California Air Tools compressors for personal use. The gentleman I spoke with was very familiar with dental applications- something I wasn't expecting. We ordered it through HD, had it plumbed into our office system, and it's perfect. Quiet, easy to work with, and very effective air dryer. We'll see about longevity. But I could afford to buy 3 of these for the cost of a "normal" dental compressor. June 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Dental Compressor Ordered this compressor for my office! The guy that worked on our old compressor couldn't believe his eyes! We got a new stronger compressor that made less noise for half the price of the old one! Can handle Hygienist and Dentist at the same time! January 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice and quiet This is a nice and quiet air compressor, small but powerful. October 7, 2014
