Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 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
