Thumbs up Attn "GregH ", thanks

I had read thru the sticky you post and I purchase the HUSKYPRO VT6315 $377 make by Campbell Hausfeld instead of the Craftsman 2 stg 175psi which is on sale for $389 (craftsman club).

The spec for my huskypro is
$377 at home depot
135 PSI maximum pressure
26 Gallon vertical tank
Air delivery 6.6/5.8 SCFM @ 40/90 PSI
Up to 5,000 hours of extended life
Protective belt guard designed to channel air to cool the pump
American made CAST IRON pump
100% duty cycle

It this an "ok" compressor for back yard mechanic, I have 1/2" and 3/8" impact gun, die grinder, air drill, 3/8 and 1/4 air rachect, 3/8 regular and angle drill, impact hammer, air grease gun.

Just one question, my manual said after 1 hour of the motor running, replace the oil, do not use regular motor oil because of the additives, use industrial grade compressor oil or full synthetic oil like Mobile 1 10w-30. So the Mobile 1 from costco or wal-mart should be ok?

Hello CBR,

Sorry for the delay!

This is a fine compressor at a bargain price. i'm sure you will get good service from it.

The Mobil should be fine although I use considerably less expensive 30 weight, non-detergent motor oil, available at most auto parts stores.
It's what is often labelled as "air compressor oil".
