Quiet and Capable Compressors
Three low-profile models from Makita are the quietest heavy-duty compressors on the market.
Makita brought three new ultraquiet compressors to the show. The line includes 1-gal., 2-gal., and 3-gal. models, all with oil-free pumps and a low-profile design. All three models have pro-grade features, including ball drain valves, protected gauges, and a tubular roll cage around the pump and motor. In addition to their great design, these are among the quietest heavy-duty compressors soon to be available on the market (prices are still unknown).
