Briggs & Stratton 4-Gallon Quiet Power Technology Review


This compressor is the ultimate game changer in terms of being quite. This is especially critical when you want to undertake an in-house project. The four pole motor works in tandem with two pumps to evenly distribute air flow. All these produce enough horsepower to run a broad range of air tools. Some of these include roofing nailers, spray painter, caulk gun and polishers.

This compressor is 22 inches long, 19.5 inches wide and 12 inches high. This is somehow standard for such a compressor. It weighs about 55 pounds. Lifting it onto your truck for transporting would be a little harder.

A 4-gallon storage tank has been installed in this compressor. Expect continuous air supply when carrying out light duty jobs.


When you need varying pressure outputs depending on the type of tool you want to run, the Briggs % Bratton compressor will deliver it for you. The air deliveries can be varied at 0.5 CFM @ 90 PSI, 2.2-3.0 CFM @ 90 PSI, 3.5-4.0 CFM @ 90 PSI, 5.0-5.5 CFM @ 90 PSI and lastly 8.0-10.0 CFM @ 90 PSI.

The maximum pressure is 125 PSI with a power output of 1 horsepower. At these slow speeds, the product life is 3 times that of a standard compressor.

Pump Type

The Quiet power technology compressor uses an oil-free pump. This guarantees quality performance without any stoppages to do maintenance works on them.

It is almost quieter than a vacuum cleaner.

Who It’s For

This product runs at 1700 rpm, making it very quiet. If you routinely operate in places that need some level of silence, then this compressor is your best bet. At 125 bars of air pressure, it can comfortably run the following air tools: inflating, bradding, wrench, spray painter, chisel, grinder, sander and polisher. If these are your common work tools, then this is the compressor for you.


  • It is very quiet
  • Has wheel and pull handle for moving around
  • Has a compact design
  • Oil free hence there is no maintenance needed
  • Easy to operate


  • It’s On/Off buttons feel cheap
  • The AC cord is not well placed

Final Verdict

With a guaranteed 80% quieter running and a 3 times longer product life, the QPT compressor is truly the best in its category of QPTs. The low noise levels promote hearing safety in the workplace and reduce environmental noise pollutions. It produces good air pressure too which runs all sorts of tools.

It is a good compressor to have, but regarding silence levels, the Eagle EA-3000 Silent Series 3000 outperforms it.
