  • What buyers say about California Air Tools CAT-1P1060S Light & Quiet Portable Air Compressor, Silver

    The fit and finish is very good and I can say that if you are looking for a small, quiet car, this is the one for you.

    I have been wanting my own air compressor for a long time, and I finally got one, it is not a heavy-duty unit, but for occasional use it is wonderful.

    I have been using my new air compressor for the first time and I have to say I am very happy with the way it works and the fact that I am not going to have a seizure because of the noise it makes.

    I chose this one over a Master Airbrush compressor as it will be ok as a compressor for my model railroading Paasche airbrush.

    The features and hardware of this CAT-1P1060S would be ideal for a full range of user needs, as I have owned or used air compressors ranging in size and capacity from small basic airbrush types up to industrial stationary belt driven ones in a military carpentry shop.

    Common Questions


    Has the problem of metal pellets in the tank been resolved?


    I bought one six months ago and didn't get any pellets, but I just bought another and blew the pellets out.


    What is the height of this compressor?


    Not useful


    I don't know what I need to buy to be able to use iwata airbrushes.


    If you want to use a smaller air hose/fitting, you may need to get a reducer coupler.


    Does this unit have the ability to go up to 150psi?


    Sorry, but I bought it as a gift.


    Can this compressor be used for continuous duty as a blast air system?


    California Air doe's offer larger air compressors that will do the job, even though it's too small.
