The Campbell Hausfeld HS5180 is a two-stage compressor that is often used in a professional setting, meaning it is super-heavy and super-expensive. It uses a 230V motor and is rated for 19A so it is best to install this on a 30A-rated houshold electrical outlet. Even though it is very powerful, this compressor is not designed to be continuous duty but it is expected to be working about 75% of the time (75% duty cycle).
Which air tools does it work with?
- Air Nailers: it will work easily with all Brad, Finish and Framing air nailers.
- Air Impact Wrenches: it will work fine with all 1/2″ impact wrenches.
- Air Sprayers: it will work fine with all air sprayers even on larger jobs (such as a car)
- Air Sanders: it will power most air sanders (one at a time).
