Here's the most important factor in choosing an air compressor: CFM. Cubic Feet per Minute.

If you're going to run a nail gun (short, small bursts), then it doesn't matter. If you're going to top-up a tire, then it doesn't matter. If you're going to air up a big truck tire then it starts to matter. If you're going to run an air impact gun or a paint spray gun then it matters tremendously.

The only thing that a larger tank does is reduce the percentage of the time that the compressor is running. You can put a 60 gallon tank on a small, 5 CFM compressor, and you'll still be stuck waiting for the thing to refill when you're trying to get a rusted lug nut off.

You could have a measly 5 gallon tank on a nice, 13 CFM compressor and you'd be able to knock lug nuts off or paint a car no problem.

My advice for general use is still to find an older 1970s - 1980s Sears/Craftsman, Campbell Hausfeld, or Speedaire (the latter two making the units for Sears) 20 gallon compressor. They'll put out in the neighborhood of 9 CFM, and you can find them for $50 - $150 all the time on Craigslist. Plus, you can still get parts for them.

Great price! I wouldve got this over the oh so popular porter Cable pancake comp, as that is terribly loud (look up comparisons btw California and that). I got a cordless nailer from Ryobi instead tho. Thumbs up!

I used mine this weekend. It's super quiet. It will get hot if you are running it continuously.

I have a 20 gallon right now from craftsmen that works like a charm but loud... I want to reduce the size to save space as well as a more quiet one since I live in townhome.. any suggestion ? prefer horizontal

I dont know about this model but I just bought the 10 gallon 2hp version. It is horribly constructed, coming from the chinese factory with an off centered weld on the wheel bracket to tank making it unlevel, tons of edges and a leaky quick connect. Mines 70db, which is not super loud but not ultra quiet either. it does have a nicer, lower pitch when filling up though. the air release valve is LOUD. Definite qc issues though, a sale might make it worth it but ill never pay full price for another one.

not nearly as skookum of a deal as the husky silent flow (re branded CAT-4610A) last year for 99, i have to admit this was temping as a back up until i saw this is the steel model and not the aluminium that they a somewhat know for.
Edit: frack it, i'll buy it anyway.
