Topic tags/keywords: compressor

I was given two compressors- one (what I think is) better-quality 1-gallon Senco compressor, and one lesser-quality 2-gallon Campbell Hausfield. I’m wanting to get rid of one, looking for advice. Would you keep the smaller better quality compressor, or would you opt for the larger-capacity, lesser-quality brand?

Keep the Senco…I have the Campbell- Hausfield and it amazes me that it even works. You do need to go to a oil supplied compressor for the longevity.

Guys say those little Senco ones don’t last. I was tempted
when they first came out because compressors are so awkward
to haul around when installing cabinets, but I put it off
and kept hauling my 3 gallon top-heavy oil-lubed Craftsman
around and it’s held up great. I still grunt when I lift it
at the end of a day. ugh.

Well I’m stuck between one that barely works and one that won’t last. I’ll keep the Senco. Thanks folks.
