Central Pneumatic 2 HP, 8 Gallon, 125 PSI Portable


This is a vertical category compressor which has the capability of accommodating various types of hoses featuring a universal quick connector which is inbuilt. It has a power output of 2.5 horsepower. This is enough power to run most of your tools and inflate the tyres and still spare some energy.

The product can be rolled on its 2 six inch wheels and onto two rubber foot stabilizers. These reduce vibration as the compressor runs.

The Central Pneumatic weighs in at 97.7 pounds. This is kind of heavy when compared with the Campbell Hausfeld that is in the 20 gallons’ category.
The compressor measures 45x18x18 inches. This is a sturdy shape for a 21-gallon compressor.


The air delivery specifications are 5.8 CFM @ 40 PSI, 4.7 CFM @ 90 PSI. This is made possible by the directly driven pump. These capabilities are greater than those of the Campbell Hausfeld.

The over 2 horsepower of power it produces makes it a heavy duty pump capable of running all the tools you probably have in your garage.

The 21-gallon tank has the advantage of supplying a constant amount of air. There is no lag even when using a blow gun which is big. This is beneficial unlike in Campbell Hausfeld FP209000RB where the compressor struggles to keep up refilling the tank

Vibrations can sometimes be a nuisance when a compressor is running. The designers of the compressor introduced foot stabilizers made of rubber to absorb these vibrations. The result is a smooth running compressor.

Pump Type

Most quality air compressors have an oil lubricated pump just as the central pneumatic compressor. It is a single stage pump which is very durable.

For ease of monitoring of the oil levels in the reservoir, an oil indicator window is provided specifically for this purpose.

Noise Level

From the outlook, this compressor seems very bulky and noisy. However, this is not the case. The heavy cast iron it is made from reduces the speeds of rotation of components, thereby reducing noise levels.

Who It’s For

The Central Pneumatic is an amazing, cheap compressor for garage and workshop projects that require large storage tanks to prolong the period of usages.

It is the better compressor than the smaller ones that struggle to keep the tank full when using tools that need a constant supply of air.

The wheels make it easy to push or pull around in the garage or workshop.


  • It has a large air storage tank
  • The spares are easy to find
  • The rubber footings minimize vibrations


  • It is very heavy. You have to labour to carry it upstairs when need be

Final Verdict

The Central Pneumatic air compressor is not the most easily transportable compressor you will find out there. All these shortcomings are compensated for by the high power output and minimal noise it produces.

It does not serve all the needs of everyone, but if you have the fitting project, i.e. car building or putting up a structure in your backyard then it is the compressor that performs the tasks with ease.
