  • What buyers say about California Air Tools CALIFORNIA AIR TOOLS CAT-1P1060SP GAL 56DB Air Compressor

    The old giant is noisy and takes a long time to come up to working pressure, despite the "4 HP" label, so I thought this 1 gal quiet compressor might be just the ticket.

    I decided to use this as a spare tire for my SUV since I was tired of burning out the little 12volt tire pumps that take forever to inflate a big all-terrain tire.

    I spent a lot of time looking for a small air compressor/ tire inflator, and I didn't want to spend a long time filling my truck's tires, because I could not stay in a kneeling position for very long.

    The rubber cups look like cups but they're not very durable and I'm concerned about the impact on the table or floor, but I think the feet are thoughtful and will last a long time.

    I had to box it all back up and wait for another to be delivered, so I was annoyed when Amazon sent me another no charge, it was brand new and never opened.

    Common Questions


    Can this air compressor be used to clean off dust on computers and electronics?


    I think if you use the cans a lot, the return on investment would be amazing. You would need to by the hole and an attachment for the hole but other than that I think that would work.


    Is there a framing gun?


    You could run a framing gun on this, but you'd have to wait a while between nails.


    Will it work with a sandblaster?


    The air tank is small and wouldn't be able to keep up with the air demand, even though this is a great compressor.


    What are the accessories that the unit comes with?


    I would not inflate a car tire, not enough volume with the small tank, if I sold mine.


    There is a black plastic tube in the plastic bag with the air filter. What is it for?


    The ambient pressure needs to be through the filter so the compressor doesn't get dirty.
