Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 53 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great mechanics, aesthetically challenged We are very pleased with the performance of this compressor. It is indeed very quiet and more than enough power to run the plasma cutter we use with it. We were disappointed at the quality control, however. The base of the compressor was chipped and poorly constructed, which makes us worry about the quality of the parts we can't see (photo attached). We aren't particularly concerned about a paint chip on the base but we are a little nervous how the rest of the compressor will last in the long term. I would suggest Home Depot work with the manufacturer on quality control since this damage did not happen in shipping. October 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product has great features. I needed a quieter compressor and this fits the bill. It is quiet enough that you can have a conversation right next to it while it is charging. It's great for blowing dust out of the garage and filling bicycle and other tires. Haven't tried it with a nail gun yet, but recharges in less than a minute. The aluminum tanks make me less worried about corrosion due to there always being water in the tank when I release the pressure at the end of the day. It have a very handy finger-switch for releasing the pressure. Much easier than the knurled fittings on most generators. I have it connected to a 50 retractable hose mounted to the ceiling. The compressor is small enough to fit under my workbench (picture). I couldn't be happier with this compressor. April 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great compressor I have had the compressor for over a year now and it is still running strong. It gets a lot of use. It is so quiet and everyone that sees it can't believe that it is running. September 7, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice compressor Had shipped to store and arrived in good condition. Initially had air leak at the drain valve. Discovered valve was not seated tightly. Couple of turns to tighten the valve solved the problem. Compressor is very quiet and recharges quickly. In using a stapler and nail gun to screen in a large porch, the compressor only had to recharge a couple of times over the course of a couple of hours. My third compressor, I'm very impressed and would buy again. August 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Way better than what I had anticipated based on some other reviews Quality level was high. Very quiet and quick recovery. Not super light, but light none-the-less. So Far - So good! Added bonus is that it did not trip a 15 amp breaker! September 1, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth every penny! I did an immense amount of research before jumping into air compressor tools. I checked through all major retail outlets and also some online only ship-direct warehouses and this one by far is the best value per dollar out there. It's very quiet, oil-less (practically maintenance free), has two quick connects, and for it's size puts out a high amount of CFM. When you start to compare compressors you realize how important the CFM rating is and this one has one of the highest for the price range, HP, and tank size. Short of shelling out $1000 for a high volume, high HP compressor this is easily the best value out there if it is in your price range. Plenty of power for my (fairly beefy) IR impact wrench, air chisel, air ratchet, nail guns, airing up vehicle and bicycle tires, etc. April 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works as stated in the ad Had mine shipped to Home Depot to avoid a possibility of poor shipping. Came to me in perfect shape. No damage, but there was a loose pressure switch (sits behind the ON/OFF switch box). Using a dB (A and C) meter, sound was measured at 68dBC (dBC includes freq below 500Hz dBA is greater than 500Hz). Note: Every 10 dB is considered a perceived human hearing of doubling of loudness so the Husky 4 gal equiv. (1.5HP, 3.8 @40 2.8 @90) is more than twice as loud as this, for example. I have a 4CFM sander from Harbor freight (25% duty cycle so really it requires 12 to 16 CFM for on all the time performance). I charged the tanks and ran the sander without stopping and it seemed to maintain a good grinding ability at 45 psi without stopping. On the Husky 4gal the same stopped after 10 seconds, meaning I could stop the rotation of the sander with my hand. I have a blower. I can hold it ON and the air blew constant at 45 psi, down from 123 psi. The outlet diameter of the blower is about 3/32" so it is pretty wide open. The air use at 45 psi was very good and very usable so I didn't care. The tank filled from 45 to 123 psi in less than 30 seconds, I would say. It is astonishingly quick to charge. From 0 to 123 it is amazing how quick it is compared to all the other compressors I have used. It is heavy so I would not want steel tanks. It lifts with balance, however. Picking it up when it is hot could be an issue. The motor looks to be of great quality. Overall, I think the build is equal to any I have seen at Home Depot so I have no complaints. From the front it is aesthetically nice as well, better than the pictures on the websites. Dials and so on are equivalent in quality to others. I have no concern because this stuff is easy to replace with better if that is what I wish to do in the future. The parts are not expensive to upgrade, that is. Mine came with the new air release valve design California Air Tools just came out with. It was much better than that found on the Porter-Cable pan compressor which, btw, is about three times as loud as this compressor. That compressor you cannot have in the same room without having your ears ring. Anyway, it is easy to drain. I wanted Alum tanks because I plan to leave it charged so I don't want rust in the tanks. I left it charged and their was no drop in pressure at all so I was lucky with seals, I guess. The motor gets very hot. You will not be able to touch it after about 15 min of 100% on time. They say in the manual that you can have it on 100% for one hour. The filters are made of metal, not plastic. If you twist them, you will see what looks to be a mini paper -- car like-- air filter. I guess this can be replaced as the filters are made to twist in half and the paper filters, serviceable. I guess you could blow the filters out? In any case, these are not like the red filters you can get at Harbor Freight which are used for Powder Coating. I want to try Soda Blasting. I think it would work as the volume of air at 40 psi is 7CFM. I use a 12CFM air compressor to do this in a high dollar blasting cabinet and I have to dial that down to 40PSI for a better finish so I know I can be happy at 40 psi, and because the Harbor Freight 15 gal soda blaster is rated at 7 CFM at 40, I should be OK with this compressor. As my sanding tool eats air like crazy and since it seemed to be working -- good enough to sand anything I need -- at 40 psi, I believe the air is 7 cfm and believe, therefore, that the soda blasting tank should work. Overall, this is the best compressor I have used and I have used many. I don't know how long this will last. I say I'm concerned because of the temp of the motor when used heavily. However, because all other compressors I have used have plastic over the motor, I would guess that they also got very hot so I do not have a comparison for this concern. The sound is no louder than an 10" house fan set on High. I would say it is quieter, in fact. I chose this over the 10 gal 2HP California Air Tools compressor equiv. as the 10 gal does not give you any more than about 20 seconds more of time before the motor runs again. That is not worth the weight of a ten gallon steel tank. My air tools are likely going to make the compressor run all the time anyway, but it is rated for 1 hour so I should be fine and because it is so darn quiet, why should I care that the motor is on? The use of the tool is 3 time louder so why care that the motor is on as I can't even hear it over the tool? They say the motor lasts longer than the traditional, as it is electric, so if this becomes so, I will never own another type again as the sound and high CFM of this compressor is hard to fact, I don't think it has been, yet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet Operation, Compact Design Initially, the compressor would trip the circuit breaker due to overload issue. Had to disassemble to clear debris in line, most likely from assembly. Once done, the compressor has functioned as designed and expected. May 15, 2013
