air compressor noise
 
I just purchased a 33 gal, 2hp craftsman compressor and am suprised by the noise level. Is it ok to keep it in an enclosure that is not heated? Temps do go well below 0 degrees F.

Long as the condensation is drained out of the tank on cold nights it should do fine.

you must have bought the "oil-free" instead of the cast iron like myself. They're much louder.

I've had several compressors, and I found that the compressor that is driven by a separate motor using a fan belt is less noisy. They are about $100.00 more, but I think worth it.

I think the Makita would be a little small for what Loudodge actually needs:

VS.

My assumption (especially based on the member's name) is that the compressor's primary use would be for running pneumatic automotive tools.
