Campbell Hausfeld’s New 200 PSI Compressors

New 200 PSI Compressors Combine Power and Smart Design for Faster Project Completion

July 2011—Campbell Hausfeld debuts its first 8-, 15- and 20-gallon 200 PSI air compressors that provide the power to run air tools 40 percent longer than traditional models, resulting in faster home and automotive project completion.  Packed with smart design elements and user-friendly features that make it easy for a DIYer to “do it like a pro,” the units will be available at Lowe’s Home Improvement starting in July 2011 and will range from $179-$329.

Advantages of the Campbell Hausfeld 200 PSI Series

In addition to 40 percent longer air tool run times (based on initial tank fill of 200 PSI compared to an initial tank fill of 150 PSI max on same size tank; assumes tool operation to 90 PSI), the new 200 PSI family of compressors are:

  • Guaranteed Tough: Feature American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) steel tanks made from 15 percent thicker steel designed to exceed 10 million cycles.  All units are backed by Campbell Hausfeld’s exclusive 10-Year Tough Tank Guarantee.™
  • Easy-to-Maintain: Oil-free pumps.
  • Easy-to-Move: Pumps and motors are located at the bottom of the tank for improved balance and stability.
  • Space Savers: Compact, vertical designs provide the same air power in more efficient configurations.
  • User-Friendly: Feature 2.5-inch soft-touch regulator knobs and easy-to-read 2-inch outlet pressure gauges.
