California Air Tools sucks


I bought this California Air Tools CAT-4620AC air compressor over a more respected brand like Makita because it's supposed to be so quiet. They claim it's only 70dB, about the level of a spoken conversation.

Well, it's not.  It's as loud as my existing compressor that's rated over 90dB.  Being 20dB louder than claimed isn't an accident.  I actually like that it has an aluminum tank, and I might have even bought it for that reason alone, but lying about noise level really ticks me off.
