Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 54 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super Quiet I needed a very quiet air supply to run a test stand. Did and internet search and found this Ultra Quiet Compressor at Home Depot. I had my doubts, but when I turn it on the first time "WOW". You can easily talk around while it's running. June 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice compressor but pay attention to what comes in the box My compressor arrived in good shape with excellent packaging. It started up easily and ran smoothly and quietly. The unit does not shake when in service and it is quiet enough to speak in a normal voice while standing next to it and still be heard. It is also lightweight and easy for me (female) to carry around. Please note: the only item in the box other than the compressor is an air filter. If needed you are required to purchase air hose, couplings, accessory tools, and such separately. April 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very quiet and capable compressor I use the CA Air Compressor to power my models of steam engines. At a recent Mini Maker’s Faire I used it to power a group of my engines. Since the event was held in a library a quiet compressor was necessary. I also use it at my test bench when I’m tuning up my engines and appreciate its quiet yet powerful performance. It’s as quiet as my airbrush compressor but 7 times more powerful. April 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by VERY QUIET COMPRESSOR, GREAT AIR DELIVERY Bought this compressor to do Airbrush work. It is very quiet, and the air delivery is greater than a noisy higher horsepower model that I also own. The only thing I can say negative about it is the supplied regulator, it is cheap. But on the plus side I had plans to replace it anyway with a 60PSI full scale regulator and good filter/water separator. I am very happy with this purchase. November 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great machine! I replaced a "pancake" type compressor that was mounted in the engine room of a sport fishing boat I captain with the California Air 1610A. The compressor supplies the air needed to open and close the air door to enter the boat along with the air horns and small air tools. The old compressor was noisy to a degree that it could be heard inside the boat when it would run. The California Air is so quiet I can be in the engine room and not even realize it is running at times. Great compressor and very light weight too! January 17, 2012
