Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DangerRick Marginal, but okay in a pinch
Received as a gift a few years back. Actually came in handy for a few projects, and I still use it when I can get it to turn on.
The bad: On - Off switch is crummy. Cage on top has way too many screws holding it together, making the frequent repairs tedious. After occasional use, it can barely crawl up to 80 PSI these days. When running "perfect," was very slow to fill tank.
The good: Big and red - it looks like it's a good compressor from a distance. If you like waking up your neighbors, this is the compressor to get! Haven't lost any capacitors yet. As others have said, it functions for filling low pressure tires, or running very low air volume tools.

I'm here looking to replace the second of these I had. The pressure regulator broke within a month of the first one, HD replaced it and guess what broke again, yep the regulator. I actually have had it for awhile but had to rig it to run at full pressure all the time. I would not wish this thing on my enemy;.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Riskson Time in use disappointing
I used this compressor just under 5 years. Suddenly, it powers off and begins to smoke. It will start up again after cooling down but won't fill to capacity before shutting down several times. Tried all the YouTube fixes I could find but to no avail. Unit is compact but noisy. Also, for service have called the number in the manual. They referred me to a number-wrong. They referred me to Ridgid who doesn't handle this model. Contact number also says my local Tarwater Farm store is the service center. It isn't.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rick What a waste of time and money
I bought this unit for very light use, even though an impact wrench and torque wrench came with it. It has only been used to inflate tires and it failed after four to five months. The motor runs, but it will not build air. I removed the top cover to see if I could find any loose hoses, and so on. I was more than a little surprised to find the cooling fan laying next to the piston rod to which it used to be connected. This may be why so many of you are having heating issues.
Yes it is loud, but that didn't bother me. Not being able to do the small jobs when I need it, does.
If you see one on sale, please keep looking for another brand.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mohsen The worst Husky product ever
Within few months of purchase and only less than an hour use in total (4-5 occasions) the belt busted. I replaced the belt (at the cost of $23) but noticed that the piston rod is out of alignment and it tends to push the belt out; probably that's why the belt busted in the first place. By then the compressor was over one year limited warranty and Husky repair center was asking for $250 flat rate repair. I had paid about $250 to buy it so I decided to toss the compressor in garbage because could not get the piston rod fixed.
Having charity organization to. Pick it in couple of weeks, maybe they are more successful fixing it for resale.

I bought my Dads house a few years ago and this thing was in the garage. It's basically a tire inflator with a big tank. I still don't know why they gave out an impact wrench with it because it can't even keep up with the wrench so I don't bother. What they should have done is given a supply of ear plugs with it cause it's so loud.
But it wont be long before the noise maker and the rest of the leaky junk on the top of the tank are a memory. I just ordered a real compressor, a real motor and all of the other real stuff I need to make up a nice one. The only reason I gave this a one is because I'm keeping the tank.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wydranater Don't waste your money...Husky don't have a clue on how to make an air compressor!
The 1st one I bought lasted 2 months and the cooling fan broke and came off and it leaked air. Took it back and got another one under warranty. That one lasted 3 months before the fan broke and I didn't want to take it back again so I positioned a box fan over it to keep it cool. That worked for 6 months and believe it or not, the shaft that turns the crank that pushes/pulls the piston, broke flush with the motor. I ain't takin' it back for another one. I'm going to Harbor freight tomorrow and buy a compressor head and fabricate it and a motor and use the tank. When it comes to compressors, Husky needs to get 'Schooled' before the make any more.
