HOW QUIET IS IT??? California Air Tools 8010 Ultra Quiet Compressor Unboxing and Testing the noise

WOW WOW WOW! That's all I can say about how quiet this California Air Tools 8010 Ultra Quiet Compressor actually is! I would not hesitate to get yours here now. Just watch the video if you don' believe how quiet it is. I have a full conversation over it with my co-worker. It sounds like a sewing machine.

The compressor has an 8 Gallon tank and a 1HP rated motor.

I purchased this compressor with intent to use it, so this was not given for review, nor was I asked to review it for any compensation. I'm only providing this unboxing and test so that others can make an educated decision if they are considering buying this compressor.

At the time of posting this video, I have already been using this compressor for over a year. It works great and is so quiet that I use it at home. It is in the garage, which is directly under the kids' room, with no sound insulation other than the drywall ceiling and the floor above it.


- Blow Gun: I like this simple, reliable, high-quality Milton (S-148) 1/4" NPT Lever Blowgun

- 1/4 Quick-Connect Air Fittings: Coupler and Plug Kit (14 Piece), Industrial Type D, 1/4 in. NPT, Solid Brass Quick Connect Air Fittings Set

- 5-way air splitter: This is a must for having multiple tools connected to the compressor at the same time.
