I have a choice between 2 ***** shop air compressors. One is belt driven single stage, NOT oilfree. (***** Item# 18419)

The other is a two stage oilfree. (***** Item# 16561)

Both are 240 volt.

Can anyone tell me which model would be less noisy? I am installing in a garage, and am looking for the more quite model. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

belt drive units ,oil type, are much quiter. twin v cylinders run smoother,produce less heat,more cfm,and less moisture. they are less maintenance free and the cost of repairs are much less on parts. oil free compressors run hotter, have more noise,and are short lived. you should consider a 2 cyl cast iron 60 gal single stage if using in single bay shop. if you need lots of air, 2 stage are excellent. kick in at 125 off at 175 produce aprox 19.o cfm per min. if need further look at www.tool-central.com
