I have a 5HP 60 gallon single phase 15 amp air compressor along with two hundred dollars’ worth of 75 ft. of industrial grade flexible hose, with wall mounts with 4 quick connect drops with one valve drop for clean out. The unit comes with a water separator and shut off valve and a extra long cord (about 35 ft) . This was used in my hobby shop and not commercially.

Asking $525.00 for everything.

It is not possible to continuously run a 5 horsepower motor on 15 amps. That is simple physics. Nice compressor though.

Many compressors are advertised at “developed HP”, which is calculated without load. My “3HP” compressor runs on a 115v, 20A circuit, which is obviously not possible if it were actually putting out 5HP.

On 220v, 15A, you would be getting just about 4HP.

-- This is not the signature line you are looking for.

Different brands often size there motors differently. Often companies supplying the consumer market with imports, size their motors close to 100 percent efficient based on the imput current and 746 watts per HP. Actual output power at the shaft is quiet a bit different. Older motors could be as low as 65 percent efficient, newer motors can top 80 percent efficient. This motor at 15A and 230/240V is closer to 3 HP than 5 HP at the output shaft. It’s all in the way they size their motors to promote sales.

I don’t think a company like Campbell Hausfeld would play specification games like Sears/Craftsman used to.

Below is a picture of my metal shop compressor it is 3 HP, I have two more, a 3/4 HP in my outdoor equipment shed and a 1.5 HP in the woodwork shop.I guess you can say I am the manufacturer, I built all three from components I collected over the years when the prices were right. The 3 HP is a beast, it’s a 2 cylinder single stage with aftercooler and I don’t have a tool that will run it down.

As you can see in the picture above, at right, it is plugged into a 15A 230V circuit. It has never tripped the breaker and I have even started it with the air unloader isolated. Below is the motor label.

The motor is an A.O. Smith motor, made in the USA in Tipp City, Ohio. Take a look at the specs. it is basically the same motor as above, 15A at 230V. Notice the one difference, the HP is actually an accurate statement of the power available at the shaft, 3 HP not 5 HP.

Campbell- Hausfeld has been around a long time and they do make an industrial line of equipment, but for the consumer market they are no different than anyone else and have turned to imports to reduce there costs and increase there profits.

Have your say...
