Rated 5 out of 5Â by alti Great Air pressure
I would recommend this Air compressor. It works great and really holds the air pressure. I used it to blow out my sprinkler system for the winter. The pressure held between 50-60 psi the whole time. This air compressor is much quitter then my old one, I did not have to wear ear protection while running this machine. No vibration or movement of the tank while it is running. Great quality product. Handle and wheels make it easy to move to any location. Oil free so low maintenance. 165 psi, 33 gallon tank. Dual quick connectors for running 2 tools at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by hpiguy Dual Outlet! Excellent Refill Speed, Compact Vertical Profile, Easy to Wheel Around
I've had a smaller single outlet 20 gallon compressor for a decade, and I always ended up wanting something that could deliver more air for longer periods of time before the motor kicked in. This large compressor from Husky has fit those needs.
When the compressor arrives on it's large pallet, you quickly realize this is no cheaply made machine. It's made to work and work hard. It weighs about 125lbs.
Unboxing takes a few minutes and then this is ready to go. It rolls around easily on the large wheels and the base legs are sturdy and spread out wide to avoid tipping. Large rubber feet and the rubber wheels keep floor vibration to a minimum.
Plug it into a standard 120V outlet and let it fill with air. The power cord is about five feet long, so locate this near a handy outlet. From empty to full pressure it took about 15 minutes the first time. That's not bad at all. It runs surprisingly quiet compared to the older compressors I've used. It's actually not bothersome at all. They use a good amount of sound insulation and it works.
Pressure is adjusted with a single large red knob in the center. I have the tank set for just under max pressure and then I adjust final line pressure with a wall mounted moisture filter and oiler set (not included). I prefer this method personally. You can do it all with the included built in dual pressure gauges and adjustment knob if you desire.
I love love love the dual outlets on this compressor! Both are factory set up to accept standard snap on fittings. I can have a permanent 3/8" line hooked up with 100 feet of heavy duty airline spooled on the wall for big jobs like nailing, and using other air tools, and on the second outlet I can have a 1/4" coiled line for quick refills of tires, inflatable toys, and dusting off work tables, etc. The best of both worlds in one machine. Of course what line(s) you choose to buy are up to you and your needs. No air line is included.
Very little maintenance is required on this machine. You just need to keep it clean of debris so the intake doesn't get clogged, and you'll want to drain the air tank to keep moisture from building up inside and corroding the tank. Draining the air tank is very simple and easy to do using the quick release valve at the bottom of the tank. Follow the directions in the manual and you'll be golden.
Overall I highly recommend this compressor for anyone that uses air tools or has a need for a large quantity of compressed air (such as blowing out sprinkler system, etc) frequently.
It's also backed with a two year warranty. You simply cannot go wrong with this 33 gallon Husky compressor.

What is the perfect size air compressor for you garage? The age old question, asked by many the home mechanic. You need one big enough to tackle the removal of the most stubborn lug nuts, yet not to big as to take up the entire corner. You know, that corner where the lawn mower, snow blower, golf clubs and Christmas decorations also need to be placed. This Husky 30 gallon is the perfect size. Fits oh so snug in that corner, and can be moved easily from place to place using the wheels that are attached. The 33 gallon tank will handle most, if not all pneumatic tools, from impact wrenches to tire inflators, to DA sanders. I am actually really impressed by this compressor. Now, letâs talk about sound level. For an air compressor, the decibel level is quite pleasant. It wonât shake the house, so as to wake up the baby, make the wife mad, and inevitably assure you a comfortable space on the living room couch for the night. Although I wouldn't run it in the basement at 3:00AM, working with it out in the garage is the best place for it. Overall I would recommend this compressor to any DIY mechanic, carpenter or homeowner. It gets the job done at a great value.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by astonman Excellent Quality at a Great Price
This Husky 33 Gallon Portable Electric Air Compressor arrived completely assembled. All you need to do is remove the box, read the instructions, then plug it in. At 33 gallons, it took roughly 8 minutes to fill. It shut off promptly at 165 psi. The compressor is relatively quiet but I stress the word relatively. You can hold a conversation but you will definitely know it's on. It is portable thanks to the 9 inch wheels, however at 125 pounds, I'll probably stick with a small 2 - 6 gallon compressor for those small jobs outside of the garage. I purchased a 50 foot hose that way I can move the hose around but leave the compressor in place most of the time. I tested this compressor out with a new finishing nailer. It seemed like I could have used it all day before it would need to recycle. In general, this compressor appears very well made and is an excellent buy for the money. Unless you are pressed for space, I highly recommend this Husky Air Compressor.

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.
