New Quiet Series air compressor from Makita

Makita has added a new air compressor to its Quiet Series range.

Designed for use across a range of applications to enable efficient and consistent operation of tools, the new, compact MAC210Q is the latest air compressor to be launched by the tool manufacturer, and it is available in 110V or 240V options.

Makita says the new one-HP, two-gallon, oil-free electric MAC210Q including case and base, ‘carries all the Makita hallmarks that users rely on’ – faster recovery time, lower noise, longer tool life, and consistent performance.

With a noise level of just 60dB(A) and weighing just 44lbs, the MAC210Q is perfectly suited to indoor use and easy to transport around site.

To increase ease of operation, a low AMP draw reduces incidents of tripped breakers at start-up, while the lever-handle tank drain system makes for easy air tank release.

Other key features include a powerful 1 HP induction motor which provides two CFM at 90 PSI with a maximum tank pressure of 135 PSI. Additionally, the compressor runs at a lower RPM, ensuring a longer lifespan for both the motor and pump, which are also protected by a roll-cage construction that provides added protection during transportation, storage, and on the job site.

On the control panel of the compressor are four things of note. At the left is the current air tank pressure, next is the regulator control dial, then the regulator pressure gauge, and finally is the air hose hookup.

The small size and weight of the MAC210Q allows it to be used as a portable air compressor. It is available in either 110 Volt site AC or 230V mains AC variants. During operation, the compressor can generate up to 56.6 Litres per minute.
