Get the job done with more efficiency and less noise with the California Air Tools Light and Quiet 1P1060SP Portable Air Compressor. Designed to be one of the quietest air compressors in the industry, it operates at only 56 dB of sound. The 0.6 HP motor works at only 1680 RPM, so there is less wear as well as less noise. The updated "IP" ultra-quiet and oil-free motor has a single piston pump designed for high performance and durability. The 3.8L steel air tank is lightweight (34 lbs.), making it very easy to transport. This compressor has an oil-free single piston pump designed to have a life cycle before wear of 3000 plus hours compared to other comparable air compressors with life cycles of 250 hours or less. The oil-free pump allows for use in a variety of different temperatures (cold) and uneven terrains.

Even though I'd read others' reviews and watched some videos about this compressor, I was shocked at how quiet it was. I bought it to replace a 3 gallon Kobalt compressor that fried after only 13 uses in about 14 months. That compressor was supposed to be quiet but I couldn't use it in the garage without wearing earplugs. As far as noise level, the CAT has the Kobalt beat by a long shot. I only use the compressor to air my vehicle tires, and so far I've only had to top-off the tires rather than fill one from empty. The compressor easily handles that job. It's also very lightweight and easy to move around. I'm slightly concerned about the durability. The tank and frame are sturdy enough, and the metal panel on front protects the components behind it. The power switch is just a lever behind the panel and it doesn't have a good solid feel about it. My broken compressor had a power knob on the front that felt solid. But as I said, that unit didn't last long. The CAT shouldn't have a problem outlasting it.

I need a compressor to: Occasionally inflate a tire, Occasionally power a framing nailer (slow pace is fine), Occasionally blow out the dirt between floorboards on my outside deck. I like that this compressor is quiet and light. Will it do these jobs?

Asked by: Big Guy
Thank you for the interest in the Light & Quiet Air Compressor. The California Air Tools 1P1060S is good for inflating (tires, beds and balls), Finish or brad nail guns, engraving, airbrushing and blowing things off. Framing, Flooring and Roofing nail guns require 2.0 hp air compressors to work properly.

I haven't tried filling a flat tire, but adding a few pounds of pressure is as quick as you'd want it to be.

You can crush as many cans as you wish BEFORE waiting, but WHILE you are waiting I would estimate that you could crush 21.72 cans.

Can I use this to SLOWLY use my Milwaukee framing gun? I don’t need to speed, but will it actually push nails through?

I don’t have a lot of space for a big compressor and the other option is renting, but I don’t need to fly through the framing.
Asked by: Kate
I dont think this has the pressure for a framing nailer. It does 1.20 CFM at 90 PSI, while a framing nailer needs more like 5.8 CFM. It works for brad nailing.
