The hardest part of putting this unit together was carrying it in the house after the UPS driver left it by the back door. Box was a little crunched on the corners. Had me worried, but once opened, seeing the fome inserts around compressor, everything was OK. Assembly was easy, if you own tools you should know how to put the wheels on. It did come with a coupler so no need to go out and buy one. Have a hose from my old compressor, so I'm good to go. The picture is of it running during break in, as you can see the TV is on, didn't even have turn the volume up. Will do another post in a few months to let ya all know if it's still going strong. Hope this helps.

    Really Is Quieter!
    As you can see in the photo the compressor comes mostly put together. You have to attach the wheels, handle and the air filter assembly. There was nothing in the instructions as to where the air filter assembly was supposed to be attached. It didn't take me long to figure it out. See the video. It took me about 15 minutes to assemble the wheels, handle and air filter assembly. Once assembled, I followed the instructions for breaking in the compressor. All the controls and valves are clearly placed and easy to find. It takes approximately 3 minutes for the compressor to fill the tank and shut off. The gage on the tank indicated the tank air pressure was 120 pounds. I was impressed with how quiet this compressor is compared to other oilless units. I ran my own test, as shown in the video and it was indeed 50% quieter than the 12 volt inflator I compared it to. If it lasts as long as claimed on the box then it will indeed be a great value. Like most compressors this size it is suitable for light to moderate duty work. Information on the box indicated it was not suitable for use with continuous duty tools like paint guns, grinders and sanders. It does not include a hose or 1/4 inch coupler.

    Quiet Compressor
    The Campbell Hausfeld 8 gallon quiet compressor lives up to it's name. This well made compressor, is quiet and strong. You assemble the wheels and a handle, along with the air filter, which simply screws in, and the compressor is pretty much set to go. You'll need to buy a 1/4 inch connector, and a hose, because they are not included. This is an oil-less compressor and requires no lubrication. I would recommend this quiet compressor.

    Quiet, Quick Recovery, Good Volume
    I was really impressed as to how quiet this air compressor is. The compressor requires some minor assembly out of the box, and is fairly simple to accomplish. The controls for the compressor are clearly marked and easy to operate. I liked the relief valve on the bottom of the compressor; simple to open and close. The compressor kept up with the demands of a 1/2" drive impact gun removing lug nuts from a vehicle. The 8-gallon tank allows some continuous use of air tools; but does need to recover frequently when using a high volume tools. This is a perfect compressor for multiple guns in use, intermittent use of air ratchets and guns and other air tools. The compressor also worked well when used to blow wood debris off tools and clothing. Compact, portable, and quiet.

    Extremely Quiet and Efficient Air Compressor
    Just about everyone that maintains a vehicle or home has the need for an air compressor. Oil-Less Compressors are more convenient, but the tradeoff has always been the loud, annoying noise. Well that noise problem has been solved with the new Campbell Hausfeld 8 Gallon (Oil-Less) Quit Compressor. I have done some side-by-side comparisons with older style oil-less air compressors, and the reduction in noise level is astonishing. Performance wise, the new Campbell Hausfeld Quiet Air Compressor is more efficient than similar sized oil-less air compressors. It uses two cylinders running at 1750 rpm and produces 1 hp with a current draw of only 7 amps. A similar traditional oil-less air compressor uses a single cylinder operating at over 3000 rpm and has a higher current draw. The dual pistons and lower motor speed results in half the noise and approximately four times the lifespan compared to traditional oil-less air compressors. Highly recommended for anyone needing a small air compressor.

    The quieter you are, the more you can hear
    This is a review for the Campbell Hausfeld DC080500 8 gallon 125psi hot dog air compressor. Out of the box it is mostly assembled with the exception of the wheels and the handle. Bother are really easy to install though. The wheels install with a standard open end wrench and the handle installs using a couple of thumb screws (provided). Per the instructions it should be run for 30 minutes with the bleeder valve in the open position. I assume this is to help break in the motor and/or pump. Right off the bat I was blown away by just how quiet this little air compressor is during the thirty minute break in period. If you need to use this is an environment that requires a little as noise as possible this is definitely worth a look. Campbell Hausfild (CH) states that this is rated at 68dB. I'm not sure where that measurement is taken from since the loudness will decrease as you get further away, but it is definitely quiet for the amount of pressure it can produce. After the thirty minute break in period expired I closed the drain valve and the compressor began to slowly fill the 8 gallon tank. The tank gauge is located at one end of the tank while the pressure valve, relief valve, pressure control knob, and outlet fitting are at the other end. Not sure why CH decided to do that but it is not a huge inconvenience. It took approximately 2 minutes and 50 seconds to go from a completely empty tank to the 125psi rating. During initial startup while the pressure was very low in the tank the motor drew about 525 watts of electricity. As the pressure inside the tank increased the power draw increased as well, until it reached a maximum of 810 watts. CH specifies it uses a max of 7 amps at 120 volts so it would seem their estimate is correct. This compressor is rated as 3.5 SCFM @ 40 psi and 2.4 SCFM @ 90 psi. So, it is not a huge compressor. If you're looking to paint a car or house, sandblast metal, run an air chisel... forget it. This will have nowhere near enough power unless you don't mind waiting for it to keep refilling its tank. This little compressor would be great for running an air brush, air-nailer, staplers, etc. Anything requiring up to 125psi but at a low flow rate Every so often you should open the drain valve on the bottom of the tank and drain out whatever moisture as accumulated. As the air is decompressed out of the tank the moisture will condense inside the steel tank. If left long enough it will eventually cause the tank to fail due to corrosion. If the tank is at its full 125psi pressure make sure you open the valve slowly. It can be a little painful if you open it fully and have a finger or two in the way. This is an awesome little air compressor but there are a couple of little things that concern me, so I deducted one star. 1) At various weld points on the tank it looks like the enamel paint did not fully cover the steel. For instance the grab handle at the front of the tank and the mounting fittings for the larger handle. Even though mine was brand new out of the box I could see rust was starting to form. Probably not big deal unless you're in a humid environment. 2) The outlet pipe 90 degree fitting from the compressor pump to the tank gets extremely hot as the pump is running. Most of the compressor pump is covered with a shroud to prevent you from being burned, however, this metal fitting is exposed and I measured a max temperature of 145 degrees F. Hot enough to cause you quite a bit of pain. Not sure how hot it would get if the pump were running continuously. Aside from the two issues I encountered this seems like a solid little performer for small tasks or situations requiring as little noise as possible.

      Bought one 5 years ago, I loved it but I beat it up a lot in my truck. It ended up not cycling correctly. It was cheaper to buy a new one then repair. This compressor is super quite and keeps up with a ton of different air tools I’ve put on it. Bought a new one to keep in my garage and not beat up as much on job sites.

        I’ve had this hot dog compressor for about a month now and I love it! Very quiet compared to my old one. The gauges are accurate and the pressure holds up when using a paint sprayer. I tested a few tools like a pad sander, a circular sander and a nail gun and worked well!
