Campbell Hausfeld Commercial Debuts New Products, New Program at SEMA


Cincinnati (October 30, 2012) – Campbell Hausfeld is bringing new energy to its commercial product line with an updated product offering and a preview of what’s in store for 2013 in Booth #10218 at the 2012 Specialty Equipment Marketers Association (SEMA) Show, October 30 – November 2, 2012.

SEMA marks the public debut of the new CH Commercial program. “Although Campbell Hausfeld has always served the auto repair industry, we feel the time is right to create a dedicated program that positions us as the one-stop shop for air power and powered equipment. We offer not just a comprehensive selection of heavy duty tools and equipment, but also a national service center network,” said Terry Atwater, president of Campbell Hausfeld.

CH Commercial leverages Campbell Hausfeld’s more than 175 years of tool and powered equipment experience and offers a full line of commercial-grade air compressors, welders and pressure washers intended for basic repair, tire and lube, paint and body and service truck applications.

New products on display at SEMA include:

Rotary Screw Air Compressors: Campbell Hausfeld’s new CS Series rotary screw air compressors deliver high performance in demanding automotive and commercial applications. Rated for 100 percent duty cycle, the CS Series features energy-efficient, oil-injected compact air modules with air ends, oil reservoirs, separators, oil filters and air filters; 125 PSI or 150 PSI operating air pressure; pre-wired electrical controls mounted in single enclosures; forced air coolers with independent motors; 120-gallon ASME air receivers and adjustable V-belt drives. The MSRP ranges from $4,000 to $9,500.

Tire and Lube Series Two-Stage, Fully-Packaged Compressors: The Tire and Lube Series includes ten fully-equipped air compressors with features such as durable cast-iron, two-stage compressor pumps and reliable industrial-duty NEMA motors; ASME code tanks certified for 200 PSI maximum pressure with automatic drains; mounted and wired starters for quick and easy electrical hook-up; aftercoolers to remove moisture from the air stream; low oil guard shut-offs, fully-enclosed metal belt guards for safe operation; and digital hour meters to monitor maintenance intervals. The MSRP ranges from $2,500 to $4,900.

Plasma Cutter (WK2500): Ideal for light body shop use, the new 120-volt input, 13-amp DC output plasma cutter uses inverter technology to produce a lot of power from a 22-pound package. The WK2500 features a professional torch with contact-striking pilot arc for distortion-proof cutting of mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper and brass. Additional features include an error indicator light for faulty connections, thermal overload protection with automatic shut-off and a built-in regulator and gauge for in-bound compressed air. The MSRP is $599.

In addition, Campbell Hausfeld will preview its CH Commercial Pneumatics Series slated to launch early 2013. The series will feature 22 new heavy-duty air tools to complement Campbell Hausfeld’s extensive air compressor product line and will include impact wrenches, ratchets, grinders, sanders, drills, needle scalers, a screwdriver, an air hammer, a tire buffer, a rivet gun and a reciprocating saw.

“Our goal is to be a leading and valued supplier to the automotive industry,” added Atwater. “We’re actively pursuing strategic acquisitions to expand the breadth and depth of our commercial product offerings.”
