The California Air Tools 10020CHAD-22060 ultra-quiet and oil-free air compressor is designed to be 1 of the quietest 2.0 HP (220-Volt 60 Hz.) air compressors in the industry having only 70 decibels of sound. The powerful 2.0 HP (220-Volts) motor operates at only 1680 RPM creating less noise and less wear. SP series of ultra-quiet air compressor motors have been designed to increase duty cycle and allow for longer continuous run times. The oil-free dual piston pump system is engineered for high performance and durability. The CAT-10020CHAD-22060 air compressor has a oil-free dual piston pump designed to have a life cycle before wear of 3000 plus hours compared to other comparable air compressors with life cycles of 500-hours or less. The easy start valve feature allows for a easier start up using less starting amps. The easy start valve releases a small amount of air from the pump at start up to produce a no-load condition allowing the motor to spin freely. This no-load start up requires less amps for a easier start up in cold temperatures. The large low profile 10 Gal. steel horizontal air tank makes storing under a bench, desk or shelf very easy. The factory installed California Air Tools EZ-1 Automatic Drain Valve has been designed to eliminate manually draining your air compressor air tank. The 10020CHAD-22060 is designed for the person looking for power, air flow, less service and maintenance with at least 30% less noise.
