This California Air Tools 30-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 500 hours or fewer. The large 30 Gal. Steel ASME 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 California Air Tools EZ-1 Automatic Drain Valve has been designed to eliminate manually draining your air compressor air tank. 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.

Asked by Buddy April 21, 2019
Thank you for the interest in the California Air Tools 30020CAD Ultra Quiet Air Compressor.
We do not have a model number 30023CAD.
We do have a model 30020DCAD. This model has an air drying system included.
It met ALL my requirements, 30 Gallon tank, 110 volt motor, oil free compressor, very quiet motor, portable, filtered air input AND output and to top it off it has an automatic drain valve. I just picked it up on Dec. 08, 2018. As I stated earlier, it meets ALL my expectations.

Compressor came and only ran for two minutes before overheating. CAT sent another motor which had the same issue. Returned to HD for a refund. HD was very accommodating for the return and helpful. I cannot say the same about California Air tools. They were helpful at the beginning but didn't seem like they cared about their product not working.
