California tools 2010A air Compressor review

For anyone looking for an ultra-quiet, durable and powerful air compressor, look no further than the California Air Tools 2010A. It runs at only 60 decibels, which makes it ideal for highly populated suburban areas, indoor areas or any other places where a loud machine would cause problems. If you have never used an air compressor that is designed with low noise in mind, you will be shocked at how quietly you can get all your work done without disturbing the neighbors with the 2010A.

You may think that a compressor designed for quiet use would be weaker than average models, but the 2010A has more than enough power for all your air-brushing, cleaning, inflation and other jobs. It has a strong 1.0 horsepower motor that reaches 2.0 horsepower at peak. The motor has 1,680 RPM which performs 3.10 CFM at 40 PSI and 2.20 CFP at 90 PSI.

The California Air Tools 2010A consists of a two-gallon aluminum tank that is rust-free and very durable. The oil-free pump is efficient and reduces costs associated with maintenance. It is also easy to transport and great for all small jobs, no matter the location.

Features of the California Air Compressor Tools 2010A

Ultra-Quiet Performance:

This compressor runs at just 60 decibels. If you are unfamiliar with common sound measurements, that is about the same amount of noise as a normal conversation. The quiet performance makes it perfect for indoor use, and it is also great for use in dense or highly-populated urban and suburban areas. The small vibrations created by the ultra-quiet performance allows for less mistakes and the sound is barely noticeable from a few feet away. For a relatively large tank with a powerful motor like this, that kind of quiet is almost unheard of.

Durable, Rust-Free Aluminum Tank:

The tank is the heart of any compressor, and the California Air Tools 2010A are made from a strong but light aluminum material. It is also rust-free, meaning it will last longer, and you do not have to be as concerned about storing it or using it in damp or wet areas. It is a 2.0 gallon tank that fills in under 50 seconds.

Surprisingly Light and Easy to Transport:

Another benefit of the rust-free aluminum tank is how surprisingly light this tank is. As opposed to other models that consist of steel or other heavier metals, the aluminum tank design is much easier to transport without losing out on any durability or strength. The entire unit only weighs 35 pounds and has an easy-grip handle for even easier transport.

Oil-Free Pump System:

The oil-free design of the pump system makes the 2010A much less expensive and troublesome. Oil-free means less lubrication, less frequent maintenance and less clean up. These types of pumps are also much more durable and reliable than some other styles that were more common in the past. Aside from occasional cleaning, the motor and pump on this model require almost no regular maintenance and will still last for many years.

Quiet Doesn’t Mean Weak:

For a motor that runs this quietly, it would be understandable to assume that it is relatively weak. However, that is not the case with the 2010A. The motor reaches 1.0 horsepower while running and 2.0 horsepower peak. It is powerful enough for just about all small jobs without creating the noise that many 1,600 RPM motors would.
