This product measures 18.7 inches long, a width of 14.2 inches and has a height of 14.75 inches. Weighing in at 35 pounds, it is considerably lighter than the California Air Tools CAT-6310


The pumping system produces compressed air at a maximum pressure of 120 PSI and a CFM of 3.10 at a pressure of 90 PSI.

A very powerful motor with a rated power of 1.0 HP and a peak power of 2.0 HP is mounted onto the compressor for superior air quality. This motor requires a power supply of 110 volts at a frequency of 60 Hz. It can be plugged into the garage power outlet very easily.

The four-pole motor has a running speed of 1680 RPM. This is considerably slower to reduce noise and wear and tear of the components.

Filling the tank when empty takes 50 seconds. The compressor can recover from a pressure of 90 PSI up to the maximum of 120 PSI in exactly 14 seconds.

Pump Type

The pump used is oil free with a large piston (dual pistons). The cylinder is made of cast aluminium; the cylinder rings are made of Teflon with dual plate valves. Reed valves are cast from stainless steel to make it rust resistant.

Noise Level

Rated at 60 dB, this product is quieter than most conversations. Slow moving motor parts produce very low sounds. It might not be the quietest but is down there with the best.

Who It’s For

This equipment is ideal for anyone who works in an environment where compressor noise becomes a disturbing issue. The oil-less pump can run in even areas of extreme temperatures and non-uniform terrains.

If you need to drive brad nails, finish nails, light surface finishing and carpentry work, then look no further than this.


  • The tank is rust free as it is made from aluminium
  • It has impressive recovery times, so you continue to use it as the tank refills
  • Easy to transport
  • It is quieter than lots of vacuum cleaners.
  • Has thermal protect from overloads.


  • The power cord is kind of short, at 4 feet.
  • Customer service is not very great.

Final Verdict

The California Air Tools 2010A Ultra Quiet and Oil-Free is a decent compressor capable of running lightweight air tools quite well. Its shortcomings arise when you want to operate tools that need more power.
