campbell hausfeld compressor value
 
:confused1:
after my grandpa died i was given one of his air compressors, a campbell hausfeld model VT559501 230V. Took it into a shop and had the gasket replaced and was told this is one of the oldies but goodies, it runs great but i cant use it and i need to know the value of it so i can put it up for sale........i can't find any values of it.....at all,
help please

honestly, campbell hausfeld are a lower end compressor you wont get much for it. even though gaskets and seals get replaced.. theres no way of knowing what kind of condition the inside of the tank is in. as they age the corrode from the inside which can be a saftey issue

your best bet is to look for a similar model by ch and try to get 30% of the price of the new one
