Came here expecting a machine that made more dense hot dogs, left disappointed.

In all seriousness I have one I inherited from my late father and it's been an awesome machine to have around the house.

Awesome for putting in baseboards or any type of trim around the house.

Wifey uses it to put new fabric on seating to match the decor of the house

I also no longer buy compressed air in cans to clean the inside of electronics

I use it to pump up car and bike tires.

Plus there is something bad-assed about the sound an air compressor nailer makes when it's fired.

Is this too loud for a wood-framed apartment? 85db is harmful so we'd need to pair this with some ear muffs right?

Look into the California air tools lineup of compressors if you need quiet.

I had a campbell hausfeld before and everytime it kicked on it would startle me in the shop. Since switching to CAT, It's been whisper silent (relative of course)
I don't fail, I succeed at finding what doesn't work

These things are horribly noisy. I used to use one with my air nailers as it was easier to carry than the pancake but I got so tired of the noise I binned the damn thing.

Is this enough to hook up to a torque wrench to take off and put on tire lugs? I know the CFM isn't rated for it, but I've seen enough videos that state that similar compresses can offer just "enough" for pulse use to remove lugs, but it appears that most people agree that if you are planning on using it for continuous use, it certainly is not enough.

Does anyone own this and has been able to use it to remove tire lugs specifically?

This is a "special buy", is it a good price? I usually wait when Canadian Tire has 80% off regular price.

I got a 62dB quiet compressor and will never go back to a deafening one again

Always wear ear protection with air compressors. Even the noise level of a blower nozzle or disconnecting a pressurized hose can be sufficient to cause long-term damage.

Yeah, insulating the compressors makes them super heavy, definitely a trade off. That said I have the Maximum 5 Gal double hot dog, and sounds like a jet engine.

No joke I click because i though it was a kitchen tool to make hotdogs, LOL.

Personally unless you are barely putting up any trim or something that takes less than like 20 brads to put up... get something a bit bigger because something this small the motor will go on so often it will annoy the hell out of you (as it needs to re-pressurize). I can barely stand my porter cable pancake compressor and that's bigger than this.

I think it's more because of the large induction motor, it does have larger rubber feets and rubber mounts for the motor to decouple the vibrations, tank seems to be about the same size.
Looking at the picture of the Maximum, the motor cover looks identical to the DuraTwist (IHL Canada), probably same manufacturer (at leat the motor)

Generally, for something like a brad nailer, you're going to want portability. If noise is a big concern, I would suggest a cordless nailer.
