About This Product

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.

      Q:is it good for spraying accustic .
      by|Jan 29, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Yes, but depending on your nozzle tip size and particulate coating viscosity, you may need to limit spray bursts in intervals (i.e 90 sec to 2 mins at a time). NOTE: Some acoustic coatings are quite thick and normally require a large 4 hp (220 volt) air compressor to shoot them. The CAT-20020 is our largest and most powerful 110 volt model.

        Q:What is the duty cycle of this compressor?
        by|Oct 22, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  The 20020 (20 Gal, 2 Hp) air compressor has a duty cycle of 70/30 and is intended for intermittent air tooling usage when running at maximum PSI and CFM output (i.e. may run continuously at 2.1 cfm @90 PSI all day long, ....OR up to ~45 minutes at a time at 5.3 cfm @90 PSI). If running at maximum PSI and CFM levels, for example upwards of 1 hour max. continuously, then it is suggested to allow the motor pump to cool off for ~15 minutes, then you may repeat.

          The air compressor works great but showed up damaged and bent!

          The unit came damaged. The box was beat up with , two rolls of tape holding it together. The unit power switch got hit hard enough that it was pinching the wheel that was placed in between for shipment. The switchbox will not reassemble anymore and unit does not power on. I contacted Homedepot PRO and this unit cannot be picked up for return and I have to return to store. Furthering the inconvenience of buying this unit.

          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.

            Quiet and fills fast, unit is great Packaging is not good, I had to go to UPS to get it because the package was gone. Just a unit. Even had to load it in my truck myself, so much for free shipping. Other then horrible UPS delivery and very weak packing for a heavy unit its a good machine

            It arrived having only 1 of the 2 wheels. Had to order a wheel from the manufacturer.

            Other than the delivery issues - one person to unload by himself, and me chasing him down the road to help him off load it from his truck, the CAT compressor is as advertised.
