Great day at OBBN’s home as we finally got a real air compressor at the house. A full sized 80 gal, 5hp, 16cfm workhorse that hopefully should be the last compressor we’ll ever own. We purchased it at Lowes, it is branded under their name but is a Hausfeld Campbell. This is the compressor in question:
I was looking over it today preparing for the install tomorrow and noticed that there doesn’t appear to be a quick connect chuck anywhere on the damn compressor. I have looked everywhere, read and re-read the manual and I can’t locate it. Every single compressor I have ever owned had had the chuck right on the face of the thing. So, thinking that I am a moron I head over to Lowes to look at the display model and there isn’t one on there either. I ask the sales guy and his suggestion was to remove the pressure safety valve and put a chuck there. Well, the pressure safety valve is there for a reason.
So, am I a moron and just can’t see the obvious or is there some sort of inside compressor joke that I am not getting? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
