Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by air compressor Compact, fills up fast not the quietest unit but quieter than the oil less unit it replaces. Easy to assemble. Pleased with the performance. November 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Money well spent This is what I was looking for...big enough to do the jobs around my shop , but small enough to go under a work bench... . Great recovery time . plus so much more quiet. easy to move around.....set-up was a snap , had to buy a few fittings to make it fit my tools...was missing nuts & washers to install wheels..other than that....great compressor for the money...highly recommend this one for a small work shop or DIYer...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice compressor. I have an 80 gallon compressor in my shop already but needed something for airing up tires and blowing off things in the garage. This one had some decent reviews and was supposed to be quiet so I picked one up after Black Friday. The compressor arrived a week later, only issue was a broken weld on one of the straps on the back of the unit (weld had no penetration on the tank). Not sure if it is supposed to be a handle or an anti-tip device. Compressor comes with oil and a quick disconnect fitting. I filled it with oil and followed the break in procedure. It is definitely quieter than the previous oilless compressor I had but it's still loud. The tank fills in about a minute and has no problems holding pressure for weeks at a time. The supplied universal quick disconnect did not work with any of the automotive or industrial hose couplings I had, ended up swapping the disconnect out for another. Only thing to watch out for is when moving the compressor don't pick it up too high off the front leg. The compressor is balanced so that if you bring the front end up too high the unit wants to continue rolling away from you putting the full weight in your carrying hand. Went to move it quickly and this caught me off guard. December 11, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by not recomended Well boys i bouth this compressor but i am total disapointed because. 1-loud as oil lubricate compressor sound. same as oil less. 2-powerfull but Poor dising. Based on that it got oil leaks two diferent places near to the out regulator. 3- i contact california air tool as they say on the return policy and they took about week to anwere me so i contact home depot where i bought it and they did a exchange, So i reorder it. 4- when the suposted new compressor arrived. Was oilet everywhere missing air filter It was looking like was returned for some one and they just stick new shipping labe then send to me. So i don't know how is the quality of the california air tools are but that the rason why i am not recoment this product February 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cant beat it I have been looking for a small compressor for some time and was comparing the CFM ratings. I found this one had pretty high CFM's and contacted the manufacturer for some additional questions. they were responsive. Have used already and it is worth every penny. I also heard oilless units don't last as long so I went with the oil lubricated unit. April 13, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Runs well; good performance, but some minor assembly issues The compressor requires some assembly when received (mainly attaching the wheels). This was simple enough, however, the washers included for the wheels were not correct, and until I find and install the correct ones, the wheels wobble pretty badly. Also, some of the fasteners on the housing were loose. They were easily tightened up. I'm very happy with the way the unit operates. Overall, a very good value. March 13, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product for the price This air compressor is very well made. I was able to follow the instructions and get it up and running all by myself. It's smaller than I expected and noisier than my large very old one, but it does the job of airing tires and cleaning equipment. I don't expect to ever use it for air tools. September 4, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sweet compressor! This Compressor does an excellent job running my hopper sprayer. I use it for spraying textures,it does great. Drives nails well also. For me it's a great compressor for the for the 'noise' factor?..It's a compressor! January 28, 2015
