Yes Campbell and Husky are the same ,the compressor you have in the pic is a very decent compressor,the only thing I ever had to do on those are these guys will buy them and try to use them like an industrial compressor and burn the head gasket out of them,I don't know what Campbell does to them at the factory ,but ,It seems like when you first get them and you work them pretty tough the check valve int the tank will occasionally stick causing them to blow the gasket out of the valve plate.This will be taken care of under warranty though.Don't let me discourage you from buying this one because this does not always happen ,But ,it does ocasionally nonethless.I have seen these compressors work as long as you want them to,most that dont last is because of sheer neglect.Just be sure and change oil regularly and clean the air filter and you'll like it,the are also not as noisy either!!
