Question

Does is make sense to use a 1/2" hose?

Since this unit has a 1/4" air outlet, would using a 1/2" hose to the air tool deliver more of the rated cfm than a 3/8" hose or is that limited by the size of the outlet so hose size doesn't matter?

On this Campbell Hausfeld Air Compressor, a 1/2" or a 3/8" will not make a significant difference with the cfm output.

Staff Answer
This compressor needs to operate on a 20 amp dedicated circuit/breaker. Meaning, the compressor is the only appliance using that breaker. The compressor needs to be plugged into a 240 volt 20 amp grounded outlet.

The peak HP rating is 6 HP. The running amps is 15. The 15 x 8 would give you a split second start up amp rating of 120 peak amps.
