 What Do Customers Say in Reviews

This is one product which has seen an alarming amount of negative customer reviews. While many of such reviews are shipping related, a substantial number are still based on the quality of the air compressor. Many customers complained of the long refill time for the machine. Other issues were centered on the noise level of the product and the below par flow rate. The positives according to the previous users were the affordability, the portability, and a few others. With all this information, the Campbell Hausfeld is badly rated by previous customers.

Verdict

This model might not be the bargain it appears to be. While it is portable and has several good features, its flawed construction dents all of such attributes. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to use this air compressor for tasks with little pressure demands.
