Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sandiegohaunted Great middle weight air compressor
This unit is a great upright air compressor. I particularly liked the fact the unit came with out an air hose because I could buy what I needed for my specific needs. The unit takes around 7 minutes to fill, and has a decent air flow 5.0 scfm @ 40psi & 4.0 scfm @ 90psi which is perfect for home garages, and house hold needs. The unit only requires two wheels to be put on and your up and running - I made sure I bought an air hose for my specific needs right away. The noise level isn't bad on this unit when you consider it's an air compressor- hey their loud.

This is an excellent value air compressor. The unit is a bit heavy so you'll need help getting it home. Setup a easy. All you need is to install the wheels and your good to go. The compressor is a bit loud but bearable. It takes about 7 minutes to till to max (150psi). The compressor can do 5.0 scfm @ 40psi and 4.0 scfm @ 90psi. This enough for most household projects and air tools. Overall I am very happy with this compressor, its easy to move around, recovery rates are decent and its well made. I would recommend this to any looking for a value 20 gallon air compressor!!

Couldn't ask for an easier, ready to use air compressor. The only thing I had to do was to put on the wheels, and these are no cheap wheels either. Very well made 7 inch wheels. After the wheels are on, it's ready to go. Just plug in a quick release hose and get to work. It took just under seven minutes to fill to its maximum pressure, 150 psi. Its small and easy enough to move around, if needed, and the pressure to do what I need around the house. Very well constructed. The gauges are up high and easy to read. It has a nice heavy duty cord, oil and maintenance free motor, 120v 1.5hp motor, 2 year manufacturer warranty. The weight on the label says 106lbs, but it feels lighter than that on the concrete floor. I maxed out the pressure and left it for a few days, no hose attached, and no loss of air at all. None! This is the perfect size and unit for around the house use and more. I really like this one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nivek What will you be using it for?
I've been using this compressor constantly with a number of tools and have not had an issue. The true question you have to ask yourself is what will you be using this for? And making sure that the compressor matches with the the amount of air scfm the tools requires to operate good. Also, be sure to read the instruction manual before using. Things like draining the valve under it every hour can go a long way.
What have i used this for?
I recently painted a whole 4x4 short bed Nissan truck. Now i knew that a 20gal compressor was not going to keep up with painting the whole truck at one cycle so i painted sections at a time and then like the compressor refill to insure i had the recommended 40psi going through my Husky HVLP. The results where beautiful. I couldnt be happier knowing i spent 160 on this compressor. Below are the estimated continuous run times before the compressors starts to loss the tools recommended psi scfm due to not cycling fast enough to keep up.
Husky Gravity feed HVLP- 3min @40psi
Husky DA Sander- 2min @ 100psi
Husky Air Blow Gun- 1min @100psi
Harbor Frieght 3'' cutter- 2min @ 60psi
Iwata Airbrush- For every @30psi
Again, this compressor will not keep up for large projects such as painting a car. But it is possible if you do it in sections and have patience waiting for it to refill with air.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bondo not such a good purchase
when I first bought my compressor I loved it then 6 months later the regulator went out, after I installed a new one it worked better than ever then 4 months later it started to going down hill almost every time I went to use it, it would build up and shut off like it was suppose to but would not build pressure when it was suppose to I had to order a pressure switch for it so overall spend the little extra money and get a better brand. I love my compressor when it works but I shouldn't have to work on my compressor when it is just over a year old so husky you need to better I hope this helps everyone on there decision on this unit

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ejsilver26 Bought the floor model, huge discount, huge worries
I bought the floor model expecting to have issues, eventually. I used it sparingly for bigger projects (swapping tires, etc). A few times I tried it at the barn last year, but it didn't seem to want to work. Figured it's number was up. Took it out this year and it seemed to work for taking the tires off. Bought a nail gun for a fencing project, and ran into issues again. Went to the manual and said "wrong extension cord". Plugged it in directly, worked. Bought a heavy duty cord, and it worked. Looks like that was the issue (user error). The bottom line, it is a solid unit. No issues. No more worries. I would definitely get this again, or recommend it to someone else.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ValAlonzo Works But Loud
Easy to use, nice upright position on tilt-wheels, good price, not sure on value as that's an normally an equation of price, reliability/use over time and I've only had it 2 months. It is very loud; louder than your average pneumatic compressor when running to build pressure in tank. Good enough to use for blowing out my sprinklers and using for air tools but I think I will have to build a baffling-box around this thing to make the noise more tolerable.

We bought this air compressor to do home improvement projects around the house.
The first project, and the only project this compressor will see, was screwing 3" lag bolts into the ceiling trusses for ceiling shelves using an impact wrench. The first bolt may get half way into the ceiling joist before the compressor kicks on and it takes a good two minutes to drive the screw into the ceiling. By the third bolt, there is not enough air to drive the wrench. You might as well screw the fourth bolt in by hand; it's faster than waiting for the compressor to recover.
