Product Overview

  • Engineered to provide best-in-class power and performance
  • Increases duty cycle for longer, more efficient run times
  • Ultra-quiet operation offers less noise with plenty of power
This California Air Tools 10-gallon electric air compressor delivers reliable power and air flow with less maintenance and noise. Operating at an ultra-quiet 70 dBA, the powerful 2.0 HP (SP-9421) motor produces 1680 RPM creating less noise and less wear. It is designed to increase duty cycle and allow for longer, continuous run times. Enabling a variety of use in varying temperatures and uneven terrains, the machine’s oil-free dual piston pump system is engineered for high performance and durability. The oil-free function extends the compressor’s life cycle to more than 3,000 hours before wear compared to comparable compressor’s 100 hours or fewer. You can start this compressor using fewer starting amps with the easy-start valve, which also releases a small amount of air from the pump to produce a no-load condition that allows the motor to spin freely. The included wheel kit permits easy movement around your jobsite, shop or garage.

  • Powerful 2.0 HP motor
  • Oil-free pump produces cleaner air for better tool operation, less maintenance and costs
  • 6.40 CFM at 40 PSI; 5.30 CFM at 90 PSI
  • 10-gallon steel air tank with wheel kit makes it easy to move around
  • 125 PSI maximum pressure

Can you use this compressor to fill a 20 gallon storage tank to help with capacity

Can you use this compressor to fill a 20 gallon storage tank to help with capacity
Asked by: Chief
usually the pump is the limiting factor. this puts out 5.3 cfm at 90psi and has a maximum pressure of 125psi. You can do the math on that. with that said, you are also limited by the duty cycle ( which is likely 50% ) on this unit. So again you can do the math on that. then finally, the performance is limited by the settings on the pressure switch - as to what pressure it will cycle on and off trying to keep up with demand and pressure reserve in the tank. This all formulates in to a equation. I am not wanting to go through the math exercise on this. However, Just by the numbers, I think the unit is capable of handling something closer to a 20gal tank. 30 may decrease cycling on it.. but also double or triple recovery time. but may depend on your use whether this is acceptable.

Can I run Shop tools with this compressor? Pneumatic tools, like inpact wrenches or air ratchets or air drills?
Asked by: jim
the compressor will not run for any extended period of time. I was very disappointed with it. It seems like it builds up head pressure and shuts off and will not start up again unless you unplug it, bleed off all the air and start over.

10 Gal. 2.0 HP Ultra Quiet and Oil-Free Electric Air Compressor is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 463.

I've been going back and forth for over a year now looking for a top-grade air compressor for my old "insane loud" junker that I had. This model was always toward the top of my list and I finally pulled the trigger and ordered it up. So happy I did. It's really, REALLY quite, came packaged in double boxes with thick cardboard padding on all sides. Fills from 0 psi to 120 psi in about 80 seconds or so, recovery is about 15 seconds. Seems very well built with a satisfying heft to it. Rolls very nicely. So far it's worked perfect for my nailguns and also a few mechanic tools in the garage. I kept thinking the whole time I needed something much bigger when I was shopping for a new model since my old unit was such a let-down the minute I bought it a few years back. But so far this California Air Tools 10gallon 2HP unit has been suburb. If your on the fence, order her up! I'm sure you'll be happy.

I was a little skeptical about buying this, but I thought I would take a chance anyway. I am glad that I did. This is the quietest compressor I have ever owned. The controls you don't have to fight to get too. Easy set up (about 5 minutes). The 10 gal tank fills is about 2 minutes. I tried a little test to see if there were any leaks. I filled the tank and left the compressor on auto. It took two days before it kicked on to fill the air that was lost which was about 2lbs. Very easy also to move around. I can take it from my garage to my yard barn which is quite a distance away with no problem. The dials are very easy to read. This is, in my opinion is the best machine on the market.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The unit came fully assembled except for connecting the electronic components to the bottom drain... The unit came fully assembled except for connecting the electronic components to the bottom drain which was simply accomplished by pushing two pieces together. One of the legs with the rubber pad was bent inwards where I used large flat washers to fill in the pushed up metal causing the rubber pad to sit lower and equal to its twin pad and the front wheels. I guess this happened prior to shipment as the box was undamaged. Paint had lifted off where the dent metal flexed. Called customer service and discussed issue. Explained I wasn't returning it for that. Used it with an 18 gauge nail gun to fasten cedar tongue and groove boards to an outdoor room ceiling. After the initial tank fill I think the compressor kicked in once or twice during the entire afternoon. I suspect this tank which is very quiet will meet my needs in the workshop. Having said that I am not a professional 8 hr/day tradesman, but a garage hobbyist.

This seems to be an excellent compressor when overall features are considered. I have only just picked it up and started using it. However, some attention to details by the manufacturer and better quality control would really help them out, as well as the customer. I had to fiddle with the rear feet to make the compressor sit perfectly stable. Overall not too bad considering they are rubber pads squished by tightening their respective nut/bolt. My biggest complaint with the compressor is it was supposed to have Universal/ Industrial style air connectors. Even says so in the manual. The two female quick connectors installed on my compressor were "Automotive" or Type B style, not Universal like every other air compressor on the market, so I had to swap them out. I thought this was very odd and thus far is why the review sits at 4 stars. Outside of that annoyance I really like this compressor so far, but I've only used it to air up a few bike tires and blow off a work table since setting it up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Design concept is good but execution is a little flawed The overall design of this CAT air compressor is nice but some of the parts used and some of design details make me concerned about long term durability. The water drain valve is small and rather delicate. The 110V electrical wiring has exposed electrical splices that are simply covered with heat shrink tubing. Additionally, there is no rubber grommet or other form of abrasion protection where the electrical wiring passes through the start capacitor metal housing. Since this air compressor is a vibrating piece of equipment and it is typically used in a workshop environment the wiring seems to pose a potential an electrical shock and fire hazard. The wheels, rubber feet and air tubing connectors do not seem to have been designed for use in a shop environment. They don't appear to be parts that will hold up, trouble free, through several years of use. I'm giving the CAT 10020C two stars because I'm disappointed with the overall quality. This air compressor seems to have wiring and components of low quality and durability.

I put it in my race car trailer because the other air compressor chased me out of so loud. You could literally lean against this thing while it's running and talk on your cell phone. Plus it refills quickly. I've been recommending these to my racibg friends who get chased out if their trailers while the compressor is running. And even though it's 10 gallons it delivers plenty of air to my ProJacks to lift my race car off the ground quickly.

This air compressor was very easy to assemble and came with all the parts needed for assembly. The working sound volume is super low. That's the reason I purchased it. I highly recommend this item. I used it for some mild sand blasting the back sides of my intake valves on my vehicle and it worked great. Plan to use this for many years to come. Constructed very well and again super quite.
