Thank you for the interest in the California air Tools 15020C Ultra Quiet 2.0 hp Air Compressor. The 15020C produces 5.30 CFM @ 90 PSI. Please check the air requirement (CFM) of your air tools.

I would think it would well for that. I seated car tires on nights and weekends with it.
All the fittings we bought for it were 1/4"
You might want to check to see if your drain plug is closed completely or if you have a leak in your hose. Also maybe a bad or burnt up relay switch.
Looks like this is an Induction Motor as well. In the parts breakout, there is no Commutator or Brushes. The California Air Tools site specifically says that the Ultra Quiet and Quiet Flow series of compressors use a 4-pole induction (brushless) motor.

According to the California Air Tools site, both the Ultra Quiet and Quiet Flow series compressors use an Induction Motor (I didn't look at their other series). Looking at the User Manual for the 2.0 HP SP-9421 Motor/Pump assembly, with a Parts Breakout, there are no Brushes shown. Unless I see anything that conflicts with that info, this appears to be an Induction Motor.
I knew that had to be a mistake. It's 16" wide at the axle which is the widest point. No guess, real measurement.
Unfortunately I do not believe it is. That can be an issue pending on where it is used and for what use. I would call them to verify.
When air is compressed, it heats up. Also, the friction of the seals against the cylinder walls creates heat. These are normal conditions. The top plates with the cooling fins get very hot, very fast. Hot enough that you don't want to touch them. Absolutely normal.
