HuntinDoug Posted June 8, 2011 Report Share Posted June 8, 2011 Been on a "shop gear" buying spree the past few months. Growing ever tired of small inadequate power tools, so I've been upgrading. Today it was the compressor. I hammer my little 30 gal harbor freight special on a semi daily basis. So, I dont see it lasting much longer. I found a good price on a 60 gal/3HP Cambell-Hausfeld at my local Tractor Supply: http://www.tractorsupply.com/tools/air-compressors-air-tools-accessories/air-compressors/campbell-hausfeld-reg-60-gallon-cast-iron-air-compressor-3310006 Fairly large at 71in tall and 254lbs. After dealing with the argumentative "customer service" lady , my wife and I pay for the compressor, and we are told to pull around back. Where we meet none other than Bevis and Butthead in the flesh. They have the bright idea to load the upright style compressor with a dolly...and no strap I got to watch it fall like a tree from the loading dock to the bed of my truck. Fortunately, it missed taking out my rear window by about 6 inches. It wasted the motor on the compressor, and put a nice big dent in the bed of my truck. But it is..well...a truck. So it's not a big deal really. Until Bevis tells me that it was my fault for standing 20 feet away and not stopping them. And that having things loaded is an "assumed risk". Needless to say I had the manager load the replacement...The End Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
