Portable Horizontal Air Compressors

 

Campbell Hausfeld VT6271The Campbell Hausfeld VT6271 air compressor will handle almost any task you need done with air tools because of its airflow of 10.2 cfm @ 90 PSI and 26 gallon tank. That performance comes at a price as this unit is very heavy at 182 pounds. The belt pump is built for heavy use and the unit is rated for 5000 hours of life. Campbell Hausfeld air compressors are made in America and come with a 3 year warranty. Users also need to be aware that this unit runs on 240V power so you will need a circuit wired for that.

Customer ratings for the VT6271 are all over the place, although very few complaints are in regards to its actual performance. Most complaints are about damaged parts done during shipping.

Taking everything into consideration we give the Campbell Hausfeld VT6271 air compressor an 8.1 overall rating. We would recommend this compressor if you have very high airflow needs like a sander/grinder or cut-off tool, just be aware that there is a chance of damage during shipping.

Pro Force VPF1580719We score the Pro Force CPF1580719 air compressor with a 7.6 overall rating. At just 72 pounds, and with its small foot print this unit is small and easily maneuverable. It has a shroud around the working parts to keep them protected from the elements. This compressor works well in cold weather as it is designed to be easily started in the cold. It requires little to no maintenance and plugs into a standard outlet.

However, the performance of the CPF1580719 is only average. With 3.5 CFM @ 90 PSI you won’t be able to use any high end air tools, but it will handle a nail gun with no problem. This air compressor is also very loud at about 85 decibels.

GMC 6310 Air CompressorWe give the GMC 6310 air compressor an 8.6 overall rating. It is smaller than other compressors in the portable horizontal category and its performance reflects that. It only has a 6.3 gallon tank with 2.35 CFM of airflow at 90 PSI. If you plan on using any high end air tools, then this is probably not the compressor for you.

The biggest positive is that once again this is another GMC air compressor that is the quietest in its class. At only 60 decibels this compressor barely makes hum. So if you are just using this compressor for light duty jobs like using a framing nailer, blowing up tires, etc. then it will certainly do the job, all while you can easily talk over it.

DeWalt D55167We give the DeWalt D55167 a solid overall rating of 8.6, which is amongst the tops in the portable horizontal class. It ranks very high in max PSI at 200, and with its 4.8 CFM @ 90 PSI. The 200 PSI along with the 15 gallon tank allows you to fill up the tank then unplug it and roll it to where you need it. This compressor is easily portable with its durable handle and wheels and not too heavy at 89 pounds. The coupler and gauges are solid and are easily accessible located in the middle of the compressor.

We highly recommend this air compressor.
