Product Overview

The California Air Tools 20020 Ultra Quiet and Oil-Free Air Compressor is designed to be 1 of the quietest 2.0 Hp air compressors in the industry having only 70 decibels of sound. The Powerful 2.0 HP motor operates at only 1680 RPM creating less noise and less wear. The SP Series of Ultra Quiet Air Compressor Motors have been designed to increase duty cycle and allow for longer continuous run times. The Oil-Free Dual Piston Pump System is engineered for high performance and durability. The Cat-20020 Air Compressor has an Oil-Free Dual Piston pump designed to have a life cycle before wear of 3000 Plus hours compared to other comparable air compressors with life cycles of 500-hours or less. The Oil-Free pump allows for use in a variety of temperatures(cold starts) and uneven terrains (no oil in the pump). The Easy Start Valve feature allows for a easier start up using less starting amps. The Easy Start Valve releases a small amount of air from the pump at start up to produce a no-load condition allowing the motor to spin freely. This no-load start up requires less amps for a easier start up in cold temperatures. The large 20 Gal. Steel Air Tank is designed to store more air for higher demand air tools such as spray guns and sanders. Prefect for the shop or garage. The 2 (no flat) wheels and sturdy handle makes moving this air compressor very easy. Designed for the person looking for Power, Air Flow, Less Service and Maintenance with at Least 30% Less Noise.

If you use this at 40 psi it is 6.40 CFM, if you have the pressure relief set at 90 psi you will only get 5.30 CFM. As simple as that.

AMAZING!!
Just picked up this compressor. Easy assembly of wheels & bumper pads. So far just tested a few pin & brad nails. But will be using several other tools with this. Can't believe how quiet this thing is. Fit & finish is high quality and overall a very attractive machine. My next DIY project, will involve framing & trim nailers, so I needed a quiet compressor as to not drive my neighborhood crazy with early morning work. This fits the bill! So far, I'm thrilled to have gotten this compressor. My others drove me nuts with their ear piercing noise.

This is the best air compressor i got by far, its very quite you can have a peaceful conversation right next to it with out raising your voice or having any issue hear the other person. fill up time takes about 4 min which isn't bad at all. the compressor came very nicely package and easy to assemble. I highly recommend this air compressor for anyone with a small shop or just for tinkering around in the garage.

Excellent compressor. Very quiet (there is a little extra noise from the easy start bleed valve for about 30s.) Operates my air tools very well. If you need a basic home workhorse that uses minimal space, I highly recommend this compressor.

So far so good, the unit works great also the level noise is reduced by half. I'm very happy with my buy, I will recommend it to anyone that is thinking of buying a new air compressor, you won't regret it.

Very Quiet
I just replaced a VERY noisy Craftsman compressor that was about a week old. You couldn't hear yourself think with it running. The California compressor is so quiet you can stand next to it while it's running and carry on a conversation. I was a bit concerned that one review said it wouldn't run a 1/2 Inch impact gun, not true, it works fine. Maybe that person had a small tank compressor, but I can say for certain the 20 gal tank keeps up fine. If you have a small shop, the extra money you may pay for this compressor is worth it to save a bit of your hearing. I guess the only thing now is to see how it holds up to normal use.
