The EC28M Quiet Air Compressor is the first in a Low Noise Series from Metabo HPT that produces just 59dB’s of sound — so quiet that a normal conversation can be easily heard while the compressor is cycling nearby. It features an industrial oil-free pump for high durability with low maintenance, and a 2.8 Amp direct drive induction motor for longer life. The motor is protected by an overload protection circuit that cuts off power in the case of an overload situation. Extremely compact and weighing just 25.2 lbs, the EC28M has an ergonomically shaped rubber carrying handle to make it easier to transport around any jobsite. The steel roll cage design protects the factory installed universal quick coupler and steel encased industrial gauges. This quiet compressor has zero set up time, and is ready to go straight out of the box.
