Q: Is this made in USA? Most seem to be assembled here of overseas parts, my 15 year old one is made entirely here and that's what I want again
by Phil Mathews from Connecticut on November 27, 2015

A: Made in USA is a legal definition that applies to items not only assembled here, but all the parts have to be made here as well.

That's gotten very expensive over the past 15 years, and since folks usually chase the lowest cost, Made in USA units have priced themselves right out of the market.

Even companies that used to make all their parts like Ingersoll Rand, Jenny, and Quincy have started to use some globally sourced parts so they can stay competitive- but their quality has remained high.

Q: Hello,
What size transformer would you recommend to operate the CH VT6271 on a 110v outlet?
I'm concerned about the starting watts when the compressor is refilling.

by Chris Roualec on April 08, 2011

A: Hello,
This air compressor requires a 230V AC single phase electrical circuit. It can not be run from a generator, inverter or transformer connected to 120V AC. If 230V AC service is not available, then an engine powered air compressor can deliver 8+ CFM.
Regards,
Customer Service

Made In America... Hopefully Not In This Case
I waited over a month to write this review because I wanted to give everyone ample time to get my issues resolved.

Unfortunately, itís now been over a month (almost 6 weeks) and I have not heard from anyone since I voiced my concerns to Air Compressor Direct and was told the manufacturer would be responding to my questions and concerns.

First the good news. I ordered the compressor and it was shipped the next day and arrived a few days later in excellent shape. Looks like the shipping... more

James,
I'm sorry your issues haven't been addressed since we asked the folks at Campbell Hausfeld to step in on 9/15. Since Campbell Hausfeld has a great many customers it would be perfectly OK for you to follow up with a phone call to them at 888-441-8847. They may ask for the serial number of your unit if you call, so you'll want to have it handy.

I will be happy to ask our Campbell Hausfeld rep to follow up on the parts you need. I'm not sure why you are saying this unit is Made In America- it's not, nor do we or Campbell Hausfeld say that it is. This is a legal definition that only applies to items where not only is it assembled in the US, but all of the parts are made in the US as well. Campbell Hausfeld products are made with US and globally sourced components.

When I get a tracking number on your parts I will email it to you privately through your account. We appreciate your business and apologize for the inconvenience.

First Impressions Very Good
I am replacing a Campbell Hausfeld compressor of same capacity that I've used for 35+ years. It will handle all air tools and high volume paint gun applications continuously.

It has new style regulator/controls which appear generic (which is good for future maintenance), it is quieter and performs as it should. This is the best buy on the market that I'm aware of for this CFM capability and price point.

I am pleased and would recommend.

So Far, So Good!
I just received my VT6271 today. My compressor was delivered into my garage exactly one week from the day that I bought it and RL Carriers delivered it in perfect condition. And it was strapped to a wood pallet straight from CH factory so I would imagine damage should no longer be much of a issue in shipping like some people have recently stated.

After doing the final assembly of the wheels and handles I ran the break in cycle. After that I changed the oil and did a couple of quick... more

Almost Perfect
Ordered it on line, showed up in a week's time, couldn't be home for delivery, shipper was very cooperative and dropped it off in the driveway.

Only complaint is that drain valve, can not access easily- yes I understand why it is on the bottom, but you should at least turn it out 90 degrees and add another couple of inches of pipe, ship it loose like the wheels so it will not break in transit.

Joseph,
Campbell Hausfeld makes a Drain Extension Kit that will help make the drain more accessible.

Depending on your setup, you might want to think about adding an Automatic Drain Valve so you don't have to mess with it at all.

Air Compressor
Overall I am very satisfied with the air compressor and Air Compressors Direct.

I have only a few minor negatives: the oil drain set up was messy, a few modifications of the piping drain fixed this.The water drain was fixed by the purchase of a better drain system from Campbell Hausfeld.

The viewable size of the owner's manual I fixed by using a copier and enlarging the viewable print.

Replacement For My Pancake Compressor
Now my (first impression, limited time use) review:

The compressor is so quiet compared to my pancake compressor you can barely hear in the house, running in my attached garage. First chore, winterize my sprinkler system, 12 zones in 24 min, was a 2 hr job with my pancake (6 gal). Still need to learn to adjust regulated pressure setting a little better.

Just received a 1/2 inch impact gun from my brother-in -law, when the weather warms up a a little, I plan on rotating my tires on my new... more

"What can I say but, I can't say enough about my wonderful experience Air Compressors Direct. Read reviews, picked my compressor, placed order and was delivered on Long Island, NY in 4 days. Pack and skidded well. I received it so fast, I did not get a chance to install the new wiring that was needed (220V), it took a few weeks but now it is up and running."

As Advertised
Everything was as advertised. I got free shipping and free lift gate on the delivery truck.

The tank drain valve is too close to the ground, making it very inconvenient to use. I raised the compressor by installing the wheels in the lower set of mounting holes and bolting a board under the front foot. I then piped the drain out to the side and clamped it to the front foot. Now it is very easy to reach.

Pros: High Capacity

Look At The Way I Fill Up My Tires
I run a cool monster truck, and it takes a lot of air to keep these massive babies full.

I love using my Campbell Hausfeld Air Compressor to do the job right! It doesn't sputter, and fills them 'ol tires up right quick!

Campbell Hausfeld is the only brand I have ever used, or will use!

Keep up the great work!

Speedy Help
I love my Campbell Hausefeld air compressor and 12" impact wrench...

I have to rotate my tires every 1,000 miles because they are low profile, 22" diameter, and very expensive.

It is usually a long and tiresome operation to rotate all 4 wheels every 4 weeks or so. With my impact wrench and compressor, I have been able to rotate all wheels with 5 lug nuts in just about under 25 minutes. (It used to take me an hour and a half or more to get the job done.)

This has given me a... more
