Rated 5 out of 5Â by Aayan Quiet, Powerful with great safety features
This compressor replaced my 3 Gal. compressor and thatâs certainly a big jump for me. It ships in a well packaged box and requires two people to lift since its 124 lbs. Once out of the box, you can move it around easily using its 9â semi-pneumatic wheels. It stands tall with the help of two sturdy feet that have rubber pads at the bottom. These pads restrain the feet from scratching the floor due to vibrations produced while its 1.7 HP motor is engaged. It takes about 8 minutes to fill the tank up to 165 psi max and only 2 minutes to completely empty it out.
So far, this compressor has delivered above and beyond my expectations. Iâve used it with my disk sander and wood floor nailer for a mid-size project and I am very pleased with it continuous performance.
Even though it runs continuously, it is recommended that you maintain a 50% duty cycle; which means for any given hour, you should not run the pump for more than 30 minutes. The tank becomes a bit hot after using it for more than 10 minutes.
Talking about safety, on board Safety Valve works as failsafe if pressure switch does not shut-off the air compressor at its cut-off pressure setting and Thermal Overload Protector shuts off the motor if it becomes over-headed for any reason. These are very important features and deliver peace of mind.
The compressorâs construction is of top quality and it comes with 2 years warranty. Be mindful, this warranty is for only household consumers. For commercial and rental use, the warranty is only 90 days. I strongly recommend reading the included Use and Care Guide before you start it.
It does not ship with any hose or connectors, so that is an added cost. On board power cable is about 5 feet long and I wish that it was a bit longer than that. Overall I am very pleased with what it offers and certainly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Lorena Excellent quality and price, well built unit
I was very excited to have this shipped to my home and placed directly in my garage. The packaging is excellent, well-padded on the sides and the surrounding cardboard slides right up, so no need to rip the box open to slide the unit out. I like it that itâs easy to move around, good design with those big rubber tires. This unit has an oil free 1.7 HP pump and motor for low maintenance and itâs fairly quiet and powerful. Iâm very happy with this compressor; I will be buying more tools to use with this. This looks a lot more expensive than it is as itâs well built and you can see the quality in every angle. The warranty is 2 years!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by itsthaiiii Fantastic Air compressor
I do not see why you would need a bigger compressor for the home. I use it for my 1/2 air wrench and it works flawlessly. I did have an issue, i plugged it into my oulet that is connected to a circuit breaker that includes the downstairs bedroom and bathroom, so if this air compressor is running and someone uses the hairdryer, the fuse will blow. But you can just reset it real fast. It takes awhile to fill up but its a 33 gallon tank, it;s expected. I have a real nice hose reel setup that i installed (pic) with this compressor and i'm telling you, you would never want to wind up an air hose manually ever again. The drain valve is plastic so i hope i dont roll it around and set it down on something and break it, but i dont plan on moving it.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by WashReviewer It took 3 trips to Home Depot to get a Air Compressor that worked.
First compressor I got leaked air around the regulator. Took it back. Second compressor hesitated when It went to turn on, had to flip the switch several times to get it going. The next morning, nothing. Took it back. I had Home depot unpackage the 3rd one in the store and run it to make sure nothing was wrong with it. Everything seemed fine on it. Cross my fingers this one lasts. Not very good odds 1 in 3 that works correctly. If this ones quits, i'm getting a refund.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dcrider Best air compressor for the money
I picked this compressor up after a week of research and reading reviews. Don't let the reviews on the other Husky(looks similar) deter you from this one. It packs a lot of power for the small footprint it has. I rotated tires on my car and it only cycled one time. Relatively quiet, easy to maneuver, two outlets, regulator works perfectly. It's not that heavy, wheels are good quality, and the entire machine is built well with good material. I am very happy with this compressor.
