WOOD magazine review

High pressure gives you more operating air

Review Summary

Campbell Hausfeld’s new line of compressors gives you about one-third more usable air per gallon of tank capacity than most portable compressors by jacking the maximum pressure up to 200 psi. Available in 8-, 15-, and 20-gallon sizes, these compressors have oil-free pumps, which means they generate noise in the 85–92 decibel range. So be sure to wear hearing protection when the pumps engage to refill the tanks. We tested these units with a number of tools, and they performed admirably.
Because the motor and pump sit on the base just above the axle, the compressors feel less top-heavy than other tall-tank units we’ve used. They each have the same easy-to-read gauges and easy-to-adjust regulator. Although the two smaller models come with no accessories, the 20-gallon model comes with a 3⁄8"×25' air hose, 3⁄8" ratchet, 1⁄2" impact wrench, 3⁄8" butterfly impact wrench, spray gun, tire-inflation gun, and assorted accessories.
