First, stick with good quality name brands, that will exclude anything with the Ryobi on it. I've never heard of California Air Tools, it is likely a cheap, rebranded something or other, I would want to know the manufacturer before purchase.

This brand appears to be pretty good, based on the reviews. Leaning toward this 4610A. Two tank, 4.6gal, oil-less, quiet. Very well rated. Made by GMC generators. $198 @ HomeDepot.

think :confused: Oiled compressor is better

Re: Oiled or oil free compressor?

Either type compressor is fine if you find a name brand for a good price. If you use it during cold times you'll want the oil free. The oil type requires about 25 degree F to start. However, once you get them going, they run fine all day.
