Get one of the quietest air compressors in the industry and work almost anywhere - even in noise-sensitive locations.

CAMPBELL HAUSFELD DC060500 Air Compressor

The Campbell Hausfeld 6-gallon Quiet Compressor (DC060500) is designed to be among the quietest air compressors in the industry. At only 68 dBA, Quiet Compressors have the lowest sound levels of any air compressors we offer, so they can be used virtually anywhere — even in noise-sensitive areas.


The DC060500 has a 1 HP, 7 amp induction motor that delivers 2.4 SCFM of air at 90 PSI (and 3.5 at 40 PSI), with a maximum PSI of 125, which is fine with me, as none of the air tools I regularly use require more than 100 PSI, and all consume less than 2.4 SCFM. While you could use it with a finish or framing nailer the tank would likely be constantly recycling. It takes a full 75 seconds to initially fill the tank, but then only 35 seconds for recycling.


This product has a very slim and simple design. It is a vertical air compressor with everything positioned on the top. The tank is the vertical part of the model, and you have a maximum of 135 PSI (pressure per inch).
