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.

Air Compressors Direct Recommended

Our choice for the "Best" slot is a step up in power. You will need a 230 Volt outlet to run this compressor, but what you might lose in convenience you will gain in power.

A larger, 3 HP engine produces almost doubles the CFM (10 instead of 5.2) at 90 PSI so you can run larger volume air tools, or use multiple, smaller tools at the same time.

The larger, 26 gallon air tank and pump weighs only a few pounds more than our "Better" selection, but it's the hefty 3 year... more

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.

Great Deal
I read mixed reviews but had good experiences with brand, I think some people just don't know what they're doing.

The unit arrived on pallet strapped & wrapped in a box. Put it together and once I wired my garage outlet for it, it ran quieter & filled quickly- better than my older unit.

It has great recovery, and is easily maintained.(Watch your oil gauge.) Make sure you're willing to have a dedicated outlet for this compressor. It takes a double pole 20a breaker with a 230v... more

"Shipped the next day after ordering by freight with free shipping arrangements. Nothing but positive experiences from this company. The freight company however could be a little more proactive by calling a day in advance for shipping to home, so I could've made arrangements. But they were willing to go out of their way later that day to deliver in another area out of town for the inconvenience."

Patrick,
The freight companies are supposed to call to set up a delivery day and time- I'm sorry that didn't happen, but glad everything worked out OK. We will work with the folks at R&L to improve service in your area.

Great Buying Experience
Great compressor delivered quickly. All fittings were tight and sealed, requiring no secondary tightening.

Seems to run my impact guns fine. I will be putting them to the test next week when I replace the shock absorbers on my truck.

I put a 90 degree fitting and an extension nipple at the tank drain connection making access easier.

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."

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
