Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it's supposed to do. Now, I got this for $69 on Black Friday. I have quite a few compressors already so this was only bought as a spare. I decided to take it to the job (already performed break in/change oil) and put it through the paces. For a oil lubed compressor it's very loud. My Makita is crazy quiet and I'd say this one is as loud as the Porter Cable pancake that I used to have. That's all I can say negative about it. Easy to roll and pick up. Fills fast. Get plenty of shots off with my trim guns. Recovers fast. Don't know what it will do as far as long term but for now it does what I'd want it to do. After all, it is a $129 compressor, not a $200-$300 Makita.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable product; terrible Husky Customer Service Purchased this unit July 2015. Used once or twice a week simply to blow out grass clippings from around mower engine. Very pleased at that point. Put it away end of September, pulled it out mid-March, and it won't turn on. Callled Husky and was told the On/Off Switch is bad and needs to be replaced; however, the switch is on backorder until sometime maybe in June. Totally unacceptable! This tells me Husky is being inundated with faulty switch complaints and can't keep enough repair parts on hand to cover them all. Besides, how am I supposed to replace a switch? Have no idea what I'm doing in that regard. Husky did not offer me a replacement (nor did they offer me an apology - 'that's just the way it is" attitude) - told me to contact the store where I bought it and see if they will help me. Brought it back to Home Depot and they refunded my money. I will never purchase anything Husky again - except maybe a dog ...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tank rusted out - NEW UNOPENED BOX Open in the store if you must buy. Mine was in a factory sealed and banded box. When opened I noticed the side and bottom of the tank was completely rusted out. Rusted through the paint. The date of manufacture was 7/2015. Purchase date 3/2016. That is not a lot of time for the amount of rust. Made in CHINA.....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from READ INSTRUCTIONS I bought this compressor today to replace one that failed after 18 years. As I was reading the instructions after unpacking everything there was a paragraph that stated "tighten all screws and bolts" WOW were they right. The four bolts that held the motor to the frame on the tank were finger tight. The four bolts on top of the cylinder were almost tight. They all needed a slight turn to snug up. You have to take off the plastic cover to get to two of them. There are four bolts that hold the motor / fan housing on. One was loose. Once I had the wheels on the compressor had a slight wobble to it. That was an easy fix by adding 2 washers to one of the rubber feet lowering it a little. Wobble gone. Only time will tell if it will last. I think I will go back to the store and buy the buyer protection plan just in case something goes wrong after warranty is over. My rating is based solely on the product build quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy this thing. Bought this for the first time 2 days ago. I added oil and started it to make sure it works. Then assembled the tires, handle, and air filter. Filled the tank and it leaked. Bad weld where the drain is on the bottom of the tank. Take it back to exchange and the store was out of stock. Traveled to another store and got another one. Again, add oil and make sure it works and does not leak. Put the tires and stuff on. Was stoked to start working with the nail gun and the hose wouldn't plug in because the socket on the tank was stuck open. Is there something wrong with everyone of these things?

is there a cold weather issue with this compressor? I turned mine on yesterday and the temp. In my garage was around 40

It's only a month old, and It ran very slowly (like the oil needed heating) and then cut off with sbout 50 PSI in the tank. Usually the pressure is well above 100 PSI and the sound while running is a much more rapid "rpm". Thoughts??
Asked by: John
Low temperature could be an issue if the wrong lubricating oil were used in the compressor crankcase. As long as the correct lubrication oil was in the crankcase, temperatures above freezing should have no noticeable effect on operation. Rather than temperature affecting the compressor, low voltage may have caused the compressor motor to malfunction. Possibly low temperatures affected the wiring, circuit, or plug supplying proper electrical current to the motor.

can you adjust the opperating air pressure on this unit to 20-30psi ??

can you adjust the opperating air pressure on this unit to 20-30psi ??
Asked by: logan
The air pressure regulator supplied with this compressor does allow the air pressure to be reduced to 20-30 psi. If you are asking if the pressure switch that cycles the compressor motor can be adjusted to 20-30 psi, doing so is not advisable, nor may it be possible

I just bought it and attempted to do the break in. All it did when I start it was him and the cut off.

Put oil in and followed instructions
Asked by: Kylegas
As long as the oil that came with the compressor was added to the crankcase before the break-in process, the compressor motor of your unit was dead on arrival. As long as the oil was added to the crankcase and the motor did not run, simply return it for a refund or replacement. Failure to add or maintain oil in the crankcase is not a failure of the compressor.

is it easy to replace the pressure switch?

Asked by: woodman
Ease of replacement depends on two things. One is being able to obtain a suitable replacement switch and two is the technical proficiency of the person performing the replacement as a new switch will likely need to be properly adjusted as well. Asking the question in this forum suggests a person may not have the necessary knowledge to complete the job safely or successfully on their own.

Will this compressor be able to blow out a sprinkler system with 4 individual zones?

Asked by: Schlitz
Alone, this air compressor is too small to properly blowout an in-ground sprinkler system. A high flow rate of air is required to properly blowout a sprinkler system which this compressor cannot supply either by its storage tank, by the compressor motor its self, or both.

Wrun a palm nailer for deck joist hangars? It meets the required CFM but I'm not sure about the capacity.

Asked by: ED
Sorry don't know for sure. Never used a palm nailer. I am guessing as long as it meets the CFM you will be fine. Worse case scenario you may have to take a break to give it time to catch up. Mine regains pretty fast. I think it took like 2 minutes to fill the tank from zero pressure to shut off pressure. If it doesn't work out you can donate the nailer to me. Just kidding.
