Questions & Answers

I bought a Home Depot Numax SFL618 Air Nailer but was hesitant to buy this 5510A California Air Compressor not being sure its being so quiet sacrificed any of the CFM value needed to sink nails or cleats into 3/4 inch hardwood flooring. So, is the stated 2.2 SCFM value of this air compressor adequate to sink 1 1/2 and 2 inch nails into 3/4 inch Bruce oak hardwood flooring? If not, what's the minimum CFM value, HP, and #Gallons of air I should shoot for in an air compressor.? Thanks everyone.
Asked by: merc
Please contact the air tool (nail gun) manufacturer for the CFM requirement of their air tool. They should advise you of the CFM and operation of their air tool.

How quiet is it

Technically I don't know, but it is unbelievably quiet. Seriously - I am shocked at how quiet it is - at first I kept checking on it to make sure it was working!

California Air Tools 5.5 Gal. 1.0 HP Ultra Quiet and Oil-Free Air Compressor is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 454.

The only real cons I see are that the motor mount bushings could be softer thus further reducing vibration noise. Wheels are uber cheap and wobbly. Why wheels are on a unit so small is beyond me. Even with the handle you have to stoop over to pull it. The regulator is the cheap part. I will probably replace that at some point. It is finicky to dial it in to your set pressure. Caught it on sale for 20% off with free shipping so at $109 bucks it was worth a try. I use it mainly for my finish nail guns. I don't work professionally any longer as a finish carpenter so this suits my home workshop needs just fine. Definitely not a commercial unit. The way the regulator is mounted to the tank seems weak in that there is zero reinforcement, it could easily be snapped off of the tank IMO. I will build a caddy for it to sit on in my garage with improved vibration control and a manifold for the air hose connections to act as a strain relief on that reg.

I have wanted this compressor for quite some time now and I finally pulled the trigger on the purchase. I bought this compressor mainly for airbrushing, but needed it for other duties around the house. First off, this compressor is extremely quiet which allows me to airbrush in quiet without disturbing others in my home. Second is that the compressor has plenty of power as well as a generous 5.5 gallon tank. Craftsmanship is top notch and the compressor is very lightweight because of the aluminum tank. The only things I had to add to the compressor is a moisture trap and my preferred regulator (nothing wrong with the regulator that comes with this compressor). I very much highly recommend this product and it has worked flawless for me, and is a great value considering the quality and technology. When the compressor arrived, on time I should add, it was very well packaged and double boxed. If you are looking for a great small compressor than this is the one for you!!!! You won't be disappointed.

I owned this compressor for about a month and probably used it 5-6 times for little jobs. The last time, I was using a blow-gun to clear sawdust from my bench. The compressor cycled on 2-3 times while I was using it, then it stopped. My air pressure was dropping to almost nothing, so I went to see what was wrong. When I got to the unit it was smoking and it sounded like the motor was trying to turn but couldn't. In retrospect, I should have never kept it. Upon arrival, I noticed that the wheels looked uneven and that the struts that held them up were not symmetrical. I thought that maybe the box had been dropped, until I looked closer and saw that they had been welded that way. The whole thing was canted and it's obvious that quality control is lacking. It sounded great on paper, but this thing is just absolute junk.

Yeah it's quiet, and it's a good thing because it's going to run a lot with all the air leaks. I purchased this air compressor four months ago, and fixing all of the leaks has been a nightmare. I used soap suds to find and fix three leaks. One was the main fitting from the tank to the braided steel hose; it leaked where it was threaded into the tank. It was very difficult to remove because it was extremely tight, but the soap bubbles definitely revealed the leak. I finally got it out, put teflon on the threads and it doesn't leak now. I found another leak where the air pressure gauge screws into the control box. More teflon fixed that one too. And there was a significant leak at the outlet from the control box to the second pressure gauge. Even six layers of teflon wouldn't stop that one, so I measure the thread diameter and found it to be .517 inches, but the pipe thread standard calls for .525, so no wonder teflon wouldn't seal it. Purchased a higher quality 1/4" male to male connector from Grainger to solve that problem.

If your looking for a small, fairly low output compressor, this seems to be a pretty good one. Do not buy this model for high volume or rapid filling needs. I appreciate that it came nearly fully assembled. All I need to do was snap in place the air filter and plug it in.

This compressor is relatively inexpensive and is so quiet compared to my old pancake compressor. It is like night and day how good this is in comparison. If you need a small compressor for your shop, this is a "must buy". Your ears will thank you for it.
