Rated 5 out of 5 by from Downsized from a shop size $3,000 Ingersoll Rand to this.... Downsized from a shop size $3,000 Ingersoll Rand to this. All I now need compressed air for is to blow things clean, keep tires inflated and occasionally run a pneumatic trim nailer. This is light, quiet and will do all these things. Debated between the 1hp and 2hp models, went with the 1hp, twenty pounds lighter because I knew I would sometimes carry it up/down stairs, I don't regret the choice and I've had no issues with the unit or delivery. Caveat: don't be fooled by lower price units that boost higher PSI, its just eye catching advertising hype for the less informed. As a rule you can't use an outlet pressure above 90PSI or you will damaged your air tools and void warranties. Even a huge factory with a air compressor the size of a locomotive will limit air pressure to 100PSI. Higher PSI compressors will run much louder, hotter and wear out faster. If you really think you need a bigger compressor then compare CFM and only CFM. An industrial compressor may be limited to 100PSI but could put our 1000's of CFM. Last item, I'm retired from a regional Ingersoll Rand industrial compressor service center.

I was considering the 2 HP version, but the added weight would have been just enough to make it cumbersome. Recovery is quick enough for what I use it for (blow drying my bicycle after washing the winter off, filling car and bicycle tires, etc.). I dream of being able to justify the purchase of pneumatic staple/nailer to my shop and I’m sure this would work well. Summary: I’m glad I paid a little more and got the aluminum version. I’m glad I didn’t opt for the additional weight of the 2hp version and it really is quiet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent quiet compressor! I purchased the 4610AC compressor because I need to use it in my indoor art studio for airbrush use. Been using it daily for a fair while now. Noise level is very low so I am pleased with that. With some finessing, it will also run my ANI R150 Mini Gun for small repaint and clear coat projects, i.e. motorcycle tanks and side covers. So this compressor was the best option for my needs. Great combo of low decibels for indoor use, combined with adequate CFM for some serious spraying with the mini gun.

Stunned by the functionality of this compressor with regards to capacity and power. It kicks the stuffing out of any pancake style I've used (usually 6gal) and the low noise output is fantastic working indoors. So far, it's run an 18g, 15g and 3.5in framing nailer with absolutely no issue. I wouldn't run a roof line firing dozens of nails from the framer and expect it to keep up, but knowing the limitations of a less than 5gal tank is important. For reference, I fired so many brads from the 18g before the motor turned on I lost count. The framer went well over a dozen. These were all with a 25ft 1/4in hose. For reference, a 1/2in compact impact wrench (AirCat 1055) zipped through 3 lugs before the motor activated, but this was with a 25ft 3/8in hose. Knowing you could use this to rotate tires at a moderate speed is great value. The only con was not performance related. When I received the compressor, the packing was excellent and there was no damage. However, one of the fan shields for the compressor intake was missing a screw on one side and the screw on the other side had stripped the plastic. This was a simple fix by finding appropriate replacement screws for less than $2 and refastening the shield. Not enough to give less than 5 stars, but definitely a quality control issue at the manufacturing level. The concern here is someone with less mechanical inclination would have just returned an otherwise outstanding product. (See associated images for details) Overall, I enjoy this so much I'll be buying a second one for our other property, not because it isn't portable enough to travel between locations, but it's so affordable, it's worth removing the hassle of packing it.

I only need it on occasion to fill tires or run a small air blower. It wouldn't be suitable for tools that require high CFM like automotive air tools. I also like the quiet nature and size of this compressor. After reading about experiences where the compressor was damaged during shipping to their house, I decided to special order it through Home Depot. In that way I was able to inspect the compressor at Customer Service before bringing it home. In that way, I avoid returning a potentially-damaged large item. Home Depot is good in that way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best compressor I use this compressor just about every day. I like how light it is, it's easy to get in and out of my truck. I also like that it is 8.5 amp soft start. I haven't blower any breakers using it and my circular saw. I work alone mostly and it keeps up with me using my framing nailer, sometimes when I am nailing beams it starts to get a bit low towards the end but it still works. For the amount of time that happens I don't mind, it's worth it to have it be 20 lbs lighter and 8.5 amps.

I have owned this compressor for less than a week and the hose from the switch to the regulator has broken off inside the switch, rendering this thing USELESS! Total run time was less then 30min spread over the week, used for a stationary setup in my garage. Returning this thing for another brand that uses higher quality connections.

What is the difference between this model and the 4610S?

Asked by: Confused
The difference is the weight. I have owned several compressors and this one is by far my favorite. It is extremely quiet and since it is aluminum can be hand carried. I think the steel version of this unit would be too heavy for frequent hand carry.

Does this compressor cycle on and off too much

Asked by: Mark
To answer this question, we would have to know what you are using the compressor for. If using a Brad nailer for picture framing, then no. If you hooked up a die grinder or a sander then this would run constantly and then run out of air very quickly. When deciding what the proper compressor is for you, you have to make of a list of the air tools that you will use and then look at the sfm or scfm that they use. Based on tool air demand, you buy the compressor that will keep up with and supply the air demand. It might seem complicated but if you read what I wrote a few times you will see how easy it is to choose the proper compressor for you. One thing to remember, you cant have too much air or too big of a compressor. But you sure can too small of a compressor that can’t provide the air you need. Good luck!

I am purchasing a Dewalt 21 framing nailer & looking for an air compressor that’s compatible with that ??

I am a home improvement ( part timer ) .
Asked by: Bryant
NO. Unit is only rated for 2.2 cfm at 90 psi. Your nailer want's 8.7 cfm at 90 psi. It will operate the nailer, but you won't be able to nail as fast as the nailer is capable of.

Is there a performance benefit to having twin tanks or is it simple a packaging consideration?

Is there a performance benefit to having twin tanks or is it simple a packaging consideration?
Asked by: Jim
Stability; Stacking tanks thin and vertical lowers the center of gravity by putting the motor closer to the ground.

Is there a place to put a water trap on this unit so no water gets into air delivery hose?

Asked by: Craig
We suggest you use an in-line water filter/trap to remove moisture at your air tool. As air goes out your tank into your hose the air cools and creates moisture. The California Air Tools 317 Water Tap attaches at the end of your air hose and than to your air tool.
