It's actually the Kobalt branded one, but has a C-H pump on it the last time I looked at one.
Kobalt Air Compressor 10.7 CFM at 175 psi.
It's also $100 more than a friend bought one for. The $650 is an Alaska price so might be a bit less down in the Lower 48. (Yep, priced at $589 in KC). I think the $550 he paid was a sale price.

BTW, HF's 20% off coupons exclude compressors, welders, etc. frown

Thanks very much, Kevin

Thanks also for the HF discount info.

That Kobalt unit looks good, but, my local store does not stock it.
3 year "limited" warranty (not clear on what)

they will not ship it to my store.

$589
less 5% discount for new charge account
plus $79 for shipping/delivery (or, drive 50 miles to pick it up - I'll probably pick it up).
plus $150 for an added 4 years of warranty

When you read HF’s fine print on the 20% off coupon all the cool stuff is exempt. No jacks, compressors, welders, etc.🛠

You're welcome, Tim. I think you'll be happy with the compressor. My friend likes his.
I wouldn't pop for the extra warranty, myself. Compressors are dirt simple, and unlikely to wear out/break on you within either the standard or extended warranty period. $150 down the toilet, IMO. But it's your choice.
