For those in the market, Amazon has a nice price drop. This is a good price since they average above $180. But I'm still going to wait out for the Aluminum, which is much lighter. But if you don't care, this is a good price.

3.00 CFM at 40 PSI - 2.20 CFM at 90 PSI

While really quiet at 60dBs, this is only meant for light jobs. Don't expect to blow your sprinklers with it.

I paid 125 for this same one from Walmart.com a few months ago and it included a hybrid air hose. These drop lower if someone isn't in a hurry.

Had to return mine due to the same reason, although its silent and 8gal it's not suitable for most of the jobs that a 6gal pancake compressor capable of...

Powerful, quiet, inexpensive. Choose two, because you can't get all three.

The HF Fortress 2 gallon has similar CFM and is cheaper and lighter.

One of my best purchases ever. Always using it to fill tires, as a blow gun, light auto repair. I mounted it about 6' up in the garage, and put a hanger below with a 50' hybrid air hose. Use Teflon tape on your quick connects. Hybrid is the best as it's light weight and durable.

Looks like the price is $161.49 currently, which matches Home Depot's price.

https://www.homedepot.com/p/California-Air-Tools-8-0-Gal-1-0-HP-Ultra-Quiet-and-Oil-Free-Electric-Ai... [homedepot.com]

But if you've got a Menards nearby, Home Depot should match the current 11% rebate sale.

Should bring this down to <$144 AR before tax.

I've got one of the aluminum tanked CAT's and it's a nice (quiet) little compressor.

Sorry, I was thinking of a different HF compressor. That one is tiny in comparison to this and should be compared to the CALIFORNIA AIR TOOLS 2010A [​https] instead.

Yes, but overkill for that purpose.
