"I’m really impressed with how the business has grown since I picked up my last compressor at the old Wyoming, MN location. The entire process was a great experience from the receptionist who answered my first call to the excellent service at your loading dock when I picked up the new compressor. Keep up the good work."

Air Compressors for Home & Hobby Industry by C-Aire

Home & Hobby Customer

"I needed a bigger compressor, did a LOT of research and the C-Aire units just kept coming up with 5-star ratings across the board, especially with customer service. The similar-sized Ingersoll Rand and Quincy units were 50/50 with many low customer service ratings and complaints on how loud they were. This C-Aire wasn't the lowest priced but had better ratings, lower RPM, quieter, and significantly longer pump warranty. I haven't used it with the sandblaster yet, but at 24CFM @ 175psi it should keep up nicely. It just chugs along nice and quiet with less vibration, refills very quickly and the fit and finish are outstanding. Plus that beautiful orange color!"

"Powerful but quiet compressor. Got this compressor a week or two ago. Shipped quickly and arrived right on time. We have been very happy so far with both the performance and how quiet the compressor is. It's actually quieter than the smaller compressor we replaced it with. Our CNC router is running like a new machine and we plan on attaching a sandblaster to this compressor as well before we're done. Highly recommend!"

"Great Compressor!!! One of the Best Buys on the market. My last C-Aire was almost thirty years old and was just starting to get a little tired. I would not even think about buying another brand. This is way more than I'll ever need for a home shop."

Tim S.

"We are a manufacturers representative in New York and Northern New Jersey. We have been stocking and selling the S261R-LD1-115P and S281R-LD1-115PD for approximately 3 years. The C-Aire product represents a technological improvement over the prevailing method that utilized a separate air maintenance device, and it takes up less physical space when installed. We have also found that C-Aire provides consistently strong customer service and support."

"I had a borrowed two-stage Ingersoll Rand compressor in my garage. I bought my own C-Aire. C-Aire is a much quieter compressor with less vibration. There was minor damage from transport to the air filter housings. I emailed C-Aire and three days later there were two filter housings on my doorstep. Thanks, C-Aire."

Degenhardt Tire Testimonial for C-Aire Compressors

Alton Degenhardt
Degenhardt Tire Inc

"This air compressor is hands down real American quality and this thing is very quiet - you don't have to yell to talk over it. There is nothing cheap about this and when I drain the tank at night and start it back up it might take 6-7 min to fill, if that!! I was going to purchase an Ingersoll Rand but I'm glad I changed my mind!"

Jon R.

"Nothing is better than having my OCD in check. I shopped for many months before making this decision. At this price point, I had many really solid choices but I went with C-Aire for a number of reasons. The first impression is WOW, really high attention to detail, not one blem anywhere, and it is quite obvious the employees take pride in what they do. I am super happy with my choice, I can't wait to fire this beast up and start working."

Compressor Pros Testimonial for C-Aire Compressors

"When I contacted them for a compressor part they were very friendly. I got a live voice on the phone after just a couple of rings and the person was very helpful. They gave me the part number I needed and a phone number for the auto parts store in my town that sells their products. The entire call was just a couple of minutes. It’s nice to know good customer service still exists at some of these big companies."
