The California Air Tools 1610A air compressor is super quiet compared to other compressors of its clsss allowing people in the same room to converse as they normally would do without having to shout over the noise. The air tank is made of aluminum which gives it added protection from rusting but reduces its durability against accidental impacts. It takes 1 minute to reach tank pressure from start-up, and when it comes time to empty the tank and release excess condensation, it has the less desirable pull-type drain valve.
Which air tools does it work with?
- Air Nailers: it works fine with the smaller Brad and most Finish nailers but will struggle to keep up with the bigger Framing nailers.
- Air Impact Wrenches: it is NOT recommended for powering air impact wrenches.
- Air Sprayers: it is NOT recommended for powering air sprayers.
- Air Sanders: it is NOT recommended for powering air sanders.
