8 Gallon OIl-Free Quiet Air Compressor (DC080500)

The Campbell Hausfeld 8-gallon Quiet Compressor (DC080500) is designed to be among the quietest air compressors in the industry. At only 68 dBA, Quiet Compressors have the lowest sound levels of any air compressors we offer, so they can be used virtually anywhere — even in noise-sensitive areas. The oil-free, maintenance-free pump is among the key components that are designed to last up to four times longer than those of a conventional oil-free air compressor, so every Campbell Hausfeld Quiet Compressor is ready for a long — and quiet — life.


With dimensions of 11 x 23 x 26 inches, the DC0 is a little on the long side compared to some of the competition. Similarly, it is different in the sense that it is designed to be rolled around on wheels, rather than carried by hand, though the latter is still an option. It is a little bigger than some portable compressors, so if easy storage is important to you, keep this in mind. It may also present a larger problem in maneuvering, since larger objects are by nature more unwieldy than smaller ones.


Campbell Hausfeld DC080500 Air Compressor has both strengths and weakness compared to most of its competition. It certainly weighs far more, at more than double the weight of your average air compressor. It has wheels to offset this, but the weight difference is still significant. It has about thirty percent more capacity than most of the competition, but has about fifteen percent less maximum PSI.
