Below is a list of customers comments and reviews (by item) regarding the product they had purchased.
1675A – “This compressor really is quiet. The only problems I have with it (1) the braided steel hose was installed with a crimp in it [...] Other than that it works fine.”
“a) This is a very quiet machine. I can be in my 16 x 20 shop listening to the stereo at moderate level and this comes on and I can barely even hear it. By comparison air blasting the dust off my bench is probably three times as loud as the compressor!
b) This has one of the fastest recharge times of any compressor I’ve ever used, which is good because it’s a small unit. And that’s the main advantage of it. Small and Quiet.
c) It’s good enough pressure and a quick enough recharge time for finish work and dusting, and being that I make guitar amps and cabs in a small shop, that’s exactly what I needed.
I have a 20 gallon oil compressor for any bigger jobs. It’s also quiet, but big as a cow and just about as heavy – not the kind of thing you can use in a small shop like mine.
d) For a sort of ugly duckling appearance, the look kind of grows on you after a while.
e) It’s easy to carry. As in I’m 5’6″ and 55 years old with a back problem and I can just whisk it off the ground with zero pain.
Overall I’m very happy with the performance of the unit, but a bit disappointed in the quality control, and the foreign language translation was just an extension of the lack of attention to small detail. ”
”This is exactly what I was looking for. This compressor is quiet enough to run inside the house. It appears to be of high quality and worked out of the box exactly as the instructions indicated. What else could one expect?”
“I needed a quiet air compressor to run a small dental operatory. The compressor had to be basically in the same room so it had to be relatively quiet. This one exceeded my expectations. It is very quiet and efficient, and the price can’t be beat!. The first one that was delivered had a small air leak, [...]”
“Rock on and have fun with this son of a gun. Exceeds all your expectations
and you won’t damage your ear drum, sooo-oooo go getum-um all”
you dental ego lab rats
”All that it said will be. Love It !!!”
”Sturdy, well built and quiet. I would recommend this to anyone who needs a compressed air source where quiet operation is important. Documentation is somewhat lacking, though.”
“ We were looking for a lo-noise compressor to supply air to a couple of small tools for assembling connectors. This unit is perfect, it was installed right by the users and it is very quiet. It is well worth the money we paid for it.
A second unit was installed in our machine shop and it supplies several machines, usually one at a time as we have no need to power them simultaneously. Plenty of air and ultra quiet.”
“As of 7/17/10, I will have purchased and used this compressor to install a rooms worth of baseboard, toe molding and window trim, so I cannot speak to the longevity of it, but it is rated for 3000 hours.”
“I had never heard of GMC Power Equipment, but while visiting a local hardware store someone was purchasing this model. When the clerk fired it up, I could not believe how quiet it was, so I walked over to find out what kind of compressor the gentleman was buying.”
“When I arrived home, I checked the ‘net for reviews, but could not find any. I did find out that GMC Power Equipment made an aluminum tanked version, which made the compressor even more tempting. The only negative I could find, and the reason I gave it four stars, is the relatively low CFM at 90 PSI. I’m splitting hairs here though, because my ultra-loud and heavy pancake compressor only manages 2.6 PSI at 90 PSI, which is plenty for finish trim nailers. Also, with this model being so quiet, you won’t mind having it cycle to keep up with demand. Needless to say I bought this compressor. When I picked it up, the clerk fired it up in the store and once again a crowd of guys gathered around to see which compressor was running so quietly. For something so quiet, it draws a crowd.”
“This compressor it is very well built and well balanced. It is also extremely quiet. Did I mention it’s quiet? We’re talking easily carry on a conversation while standing right in front of it quiet. It’s amazing.”
“At this time I highly recommend this compressor. Unless you need the extra durability of the steel tanks (things slamming in the compressor all of the time), get the aluminum tank version for $10 more and save your back. ”
“Use to power Gentleman Door Opener so compressor is in the house. Hardly notice. Like oil free and quick response.
Avalability of aluminum tanks great if move around a lot! As mine is stationary, used steel tanks.
Everyone who has seen this is amazed.”
”I use the air compressor to power my Chiropractic adjusting tables and am amazed how much quieter this model is than my previous. My only complaint is I wish it had a bigger tank as it shuts on and off alot during patient flow throughout the day.”
”Greatest and quietest air compressor ever, you won’t be dissapointed at all”
”This is SUPER quiet, and recovery is very fast, excellent product”
“I live in a shared housing situation, and really needed a quiet compressor to avoid annoying my house mates. This one certainly fits the bill. I got it in and turned it on for the first time, half expecting to be disappointed by the loudness. But I was actually pleasantly surprised at how quite is. The only downside is the somewhat low CFM rating, but it still produces enough air for what I need.”
”Purrs like a kitten. I use it on my Tormach PCNC Mill power draw bar. Charge from ambient pressure for me was 1 minute 35 seconds. Recharge from kick in pressure 23 seconds.”
“Check out their video on YouTube. It is that quiet.”
“I only do woodworking on weekends and evenings so quietness is very important to me.
I had a pancake compressor before and couldn’t use it much because of its noise.
This one is so much quieter that I can use it at night or when baby is sleeping.
Size is compact compared to my other wood working tool and can be easily stored under a work bench.
It can be easily lifted with one hand.
Used it with nail gun and after work cleaning and results are outstanding.
It would be nice if the compressor came with nail gun or tire package but its quietness!! is why I purchased this compressor.
“I’m a light duty air compressor user. It will pump air into my bicycle and car tires. Once in a while I’ll use it to blow dust off something or other. So the main consideration for me was simply whether or not I could tolerate using the compressor as most of them are incredibly noisy. Well, this one is not. Friends of mine who are familiar with air compressors are impressed with the GMC’s quietness. Having said that, of course it functions very well for the tasks I ask it to do. No problems whatsoever once I figured out that teflon tape was essential for making all the connections. Also, the built in gauges appear to be quite accurate.”
”I am a retired professor of Electrical Engineering. I taught actoustics for 40 years at the University of Wiscoonsin. I understand noise and industrial noise problems. When I saw the ratings on this conpressor, 60 dBa, I was skeptical. Most small compressors similar to this one are around 70 dBa. This pump lives up to its noise specifications. It is very quiet. I can verify with acoustical measuring equipment readings that this is an amazing 10 dBa quieter than other compressors I have used. If the other specifications suite you, this is the one to consider. ”
“I purchased this Syclone 4610A based on a friends opinion and the reviews on Amazon’s site. I have been using this unit now for 4 months, and I could not be more pleased with the operation and performance. Quietest compressor I have ever used. The unit arrived at my shop with an inoperative regulator gauge. I called CSN and advised them of the problem, I told them I needed the part as soon as I could get it. Customer Service were the nicest folks and said they would get it on the way for next day delivery, I recv’d the part the next day as promised. I will go back to this store for many purchases. Thank you CSN and Amazon for a great price and product !!”
”Runs super quiet. That is so nice. Can literally have a conversation with it running and hardly even notice. It does everything you would expect for the rated cfm’s. I use it with staplers, nailers and air brushes”
“I was looking for a quiet compressor as it is in my house running my weaving loom. No earmuffs needed. You can really stand right next to the unit and converse with someone and not have to strain to hear them. I am very happy with the GMC compressor.”
”Perfect for use in my apartment! Replaces my small 1/4 HP “quiet compressor” that I ran in a cooler box because of noise, and is even quieter than that! I needed the extra flow for painting with spray gun, and this compressor is perfect. It even charges the larger tank faster than another 1.5 HP model I bought but which was just way too loud.”
“Product is what I expected, quiet, good air delivery and light for the air and horsepower”
“It’s a little guy and you would expect it to be pretty much powerless. Not so says I. It is a god awful silver color and does actually say GMC on it. Putting the UGH in ugly aside for the moment, this thing does exactly what it says it can and does it without waking the neighbors after a midnight paint frenzy. Nah you can’t use it to paint a car in an hour but who cares. If you buy this your running small paint jobs, nail guns, brad guns, small to medium air tools along with tire chucks and blowing crap out of a corner that the broom and vac wont reach. It is quiet and goes all day if you need it to. It is medium-small so you can take it with you without to much trouble.
Eat your heart out Briggs. Now if they would paint the ugly duckling black and yellow or blue or, well anything other than stark-blinding silver. Oh I think I should mention to all of you perfectionists out there that the welding points where they attached things to the tank are rough. They didn’t grind ‘em down to be smooth or look good-thus the silver to cover it all up.
I like it and will buy another when this ones life force blows out.
Thanks for reading.”
”I’ve owned many compressors, and I’ve been looking for a quiet compressor without compromising power. I wish I had known about this one sooner. This is absolutely the quietest compressor I’ve ever seen. I don’t have decibel numbers, but it is about as loud as someone talking in a normal voice. I bought this for my lab at work, and I plan on getting one for home use as well.”
”I selected this using because I was looking for something as quiet as possible with decent airflow. I am into racing offroad RC cars and mainly use it for cleaning them in the garage.
This unit is so quiet it is really amazing. It used to be that as soon as I turned on power to my old unit my wife would yell at me to turn it off if she was home. The first time I used this one she only came to see what the noise was once I started blowing air. The air makes more noise than the compressor.
If you are looking for an air compressor for light household duty and quiet is important then this is well worth the extra over a unit from the local hardware store.
Mounting of wheels not well thought out. They rubbed on the side of the tank and the mounting bracket is not perpindicular to the bolt where the nut sits. A quick trip to OSH for some nylon washers and nyloc nuts and all was OK.
I have used it a number of times now and I am really happy that I took the chance and ordered this unit. Shipping was very fast too.”
”I tried so many others that I ended up having to take back because of how loud they were. This is the first one I am keeping! Works great, works quietly. If you were searching for a well built quiet compressor this is it.”
”This is a terrific value for the money. For one thing, it’s a twin-cylinder compressor so it fills up its air tank pretty quickly. And boy is it quiet! I live in an apartment building but I have no hesitation at all in using this compressor at all hours, it’s so quiet. On the other hand, it does transmit a good bit of vibration to the floor, so if someone lives below you I would recommend setting it on a couple of solid cement blocks as I have done; this dampens the vibration very nicely.”
“Now it’s true (as other reviewers have pointed out) that the construction is somewhat rough-and-ready (big ugly welds) but that does NOT detract from the overall quality, it just means it’s not as pretty as it could be. Also, the wheels are not the very best design for mobility, but hey, considering the incredible bang-for-the-buck you’re getting, why complain? Besides, just how much are you going to be moving it around anyway?
In addition to its other merits, this little workhorse comes with a combination air regulator/air gauge/moisture trap/quick-disconnect socket. The regulator is adjustable and if you push the cap down, it locks in place so the specific air pressure you want stays the same until you pull up the cap to unlock it again. All the hardware appears to be good solid quality too; it does not give the impression of cheapness. Also included is a 2nd air gauge that tells you what the pressure is in the air tank itself.
I have had five different air compressors over the years and this is definitely the most useful of the bunch. I can’t believe what a wonderful bargain this is. Very highly recommended.”
“I researched compressors for days and was spooked by all the problems people had with various models. When I came across this one and read the four or five reviews that had been posted, along with the specs of the compressor, I decided to give it a try. This is absolutely the quietest compressor I have ever seen, particularly considering how quickly it pressures up the large tank. The on / off switch is very accessible and the unit can easily be moved around. This is a perfect unit to have in a home shop or garage as it won’t drive your family or neighbors crazy as you work on projects late. Know that it does not come with a hose or attachments. I bought the 50′ Goodyear hose and Ampro accessory kit, which was exactly what I needed. Placing the compressor at the head of my garage, I can reach vehicles parked in front of the garage with ease. Don’t scrimp on your air hose and the Goodyear one doesn’t fight you … it just lays down and behaves. My only complaint is that they should include adequate washers to space the wheels away from the axle mounts so the tires do not rub. Before you start to mount the wheels, get at least 3/16″ thickness in washers to fit on each axle or you will wish you had. Couldn’t be happier with the unit and would recommend it to anyone.”
”It’s about your average garage air compressor in size, volume and use. But stands out extremely well in that it’s so quiet. At this point, in my opinion, they have no competition in this area. Doesn’t even scare my baby.”
”We had couple of other brand compressors to work with our equipment but none of them are as quiet as this one. It is also easy to operate – A great product”
“This is a great little compressor. I bought this compressor due to the lower current load than my existing compressor and after reading all the positive reviews.
This actually filled the tank as fast as my 3hp compressor. However, this compressor is extremely quiet and I was delightfully surprised. It seems to be slightly louder than a refrigerator”
”Very quiet compressor, this may offset the price but I found that it was quite expensive for the performance.”
”one of the best purchases I have ever made, works like a champ in my dental lab and makes very little noise and the price wonderful at 200 and change THANX SO MUCH”
”I am an airbrush artist in Charlotte, NC and one frustrating aspect of it for me was the inaccesibility of a quiet if not silent Air Compressor. I didn’t want to pay $1000 or even close to that for a good compressor that would not terrify my kids or clients. So when i saw the Cyclone I thought it was just hype. I bought [...] and i am not only pleasantly surprised, I even suggested to airbrush speacialty site [...] that they look into being a reseller for startups. Because the compressor is quiet (you can hear it running)you never feel disturbed while painting. [...]”
