Answer: 
Depends on what you want to do. 1/4 is good for adding air to a tire and other odd and end things but 3/8 is the minimum for most pneumatic tools and 1/2 is required for heavy duty tools that require a lot of air.
The first thing you have to do is research and understand the type of tools you are going to use with the compressor and then find the right size hose. Always review the tool air volume Read More

at what pressure should the compressor automatically shut off?

I plugged in my new air compressor today after removing it from the box. It charged the tank to 170psi according to the gauge and still hadn't shut off. I manually turned the compressor off not waiting for the safety valve to pop. This is my first air compressor so I might not be reading the manual right, but I was under the impression that the motor should shut off when the tank reaches 165psi.

Answer: 
The guage on my unit stopped consistently at 170 PSI. Tank rated to 190 PSI. If I had to guess, I bet the gauges, yours and mine, are off just a bit. Just make sure the safety valve works and drain the tank after you are done using.

Answer: 
According to the built in gauge, mine turns off between 165 and 170 PSI, and will start back up when the pressure drops below 140 PSI. I think I would let it run a little longer. All gauges have some error and the tank should be good to over 300 PSI. And like you said, the safety valve will blow well before anything else happens. If it does blow before the compressor shuts off, take it back.

Answer: 
You should read the manual, it goes off at 165psi. See if the gauge is zeroed out before you charged it. Since its new try cycling it on an off a few times. If it does not work you might have to adjust the cut off pressure on the Pressure switch.

Hi DIYer,
I'm Travis from The Home Depot. Thanks for visiting our site.
The gauge could be reading incorrectly, or the pressure relief valve may be defective. In either case, you acted correctly when you turned it off.
Test the pressure relief valve by pulling it open while the compressor is safely pressurized below the stated maximum pressure of 165 psi. Use pliers and gently tug on the metal ring Read More
Hi DIYer,
I'm Travis from The Home Depot. Thanks for visiting our site.
The gauge could be reading incorrectly, or the pressure relief valve may be defective. In either case, you acted correctly when you turned it off.
Test the pressure relief valve by pulling it open while the compressor is safely pressurized below the stated maximum pressure of 165 psi. Use pliers and gently tug on the metal ring attached to the safety valve.
The valve should open and release air while you hold it open. It should close back after you release the ring.
If the compressor continues to pump beyond what you determine is a safe pressure, say, 10 to 20 psi beyond the 165 psi, consider the unit defective.
Do not allow the compressor to exceed the maximum range of it's gauge.
Thank you for asking,

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 196 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great compressor, but... I love this compressor. It has a high quality look and feel to it. It is slightly loud, but no louder than you would expect, and it sounds good. It builds pressure at a nice rate and from what I can tell by my research it is the biggest 120 volt compressor you can buy. The motor and tank have the exact specs of the craftsman 33 gallon, but the craftsman sells for 350. I would have rated the value at 4 or 5 stars, but a month after I made my purchase at 299 I see my store advertising a new lower price of 239. That's a big difference and its not a sale that I missed, its just the new price. I contacted customer service to see if they could match the price for me and they would not. I know they don't have to, but it still really leaves me with a bad feeling overall. If they decided they could lower the price by 60 dollars and still make enough of a profit to continue to sell the product, then it was definitely not a good value for me. In fact I feel like it was an awful value. However, for the new price of 239 ( which is at the morganville nj location, not online) it would be an incredible value. So to summarize, I love the compressor, but I'm not too happy with home depot. May 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it! Got this compressor few weeks ago it's sweet nice and quiet works perfect! Would recommend May 3, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A really nice air compressor My boy and I purchased this the other day . It was on sale for $269. What a deal.It has 2 quick connect outlets so we hard lined one of them and added a brass shut-off (ball valve) and a filter since a spray guns going to be used . After 3 days there was no air pressure leaks or bleed off what so ever. We're very pleased . The tank fills up quickly but it is not as quiet as other models. Consider what the air compressor is (1.7hp.) So yes it will be loud but not constantly like a smaller motor would. No air line or fittings are supplied but it does come with a factory 2yr. warranty . We also got the 50ft retractable hose which was connected to the hard line connection. I suggest spending the extra money and add the filter and valve. May 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Air compressor It works great. It's easy to move and it doesn't take up a lot of space. Good product. May 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far, so good! Even tho this is a larger unit than I'm used to, it fits almost anywhere and is easy to move around. Quite compared to my smaller pancake. Only thing to look at is the filter. This unscrewed when running and fell to the ground; this increased the noise from the compressor. Once I screwed it back in, back to normal. I plan on Teflon taping this back in or some other semi.perm fix to keep the vibrations form unscrewing again. Regulator to the tool's pressure works good but tuning in exacting pressures will get you close to what you want (about 5lbs +/-) Compressor is easy to use, move and adjust. Much more than I wanted but for the price and my needs, it is well worth it!!! Anything else that came close cost way to much. April 1, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by worst purchase ever I am guessing I just received a bad compressor, however it literally lasted 15 minutes. After 15 minutes of total run time the pump completely came apart and started spraying pieces of plastic and metal all over my garage. I will still buy all of my tools from home depot but I refuse to purchase another "Husky" brand air compressor. The store did take the compressor back and refunded my money with no hassle at all. Great customer service just a poor quality compressor. April 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Impressed I was not sure a compressor this small and quiet would be enough for my mechanic air tools. I was very pleased with the performance of the product. It does need to have a full tank to run my 1/2 inch drive impact but I was able to take off lug nuts with it. I bought the Husky hybrid hose and was very pleased with it also. April 12, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Probably would not recommend This air compressor is advertised as "quiet" which is why I bought it. The ad says "78 db". Well, I have a decibel meter and in my shop this compressor ran at 92 db!!!! If OSHA were in the room, that's loud enough that over a time-weighted average hearing protection would be required!! It also drew such a heavy amperage load (at 115 volts) that you felt like it was going to stall out on restart. Even once it got running it was definitely not running at full speed and was drawing heavy amperage. A SURE recipe for a burnt out motor within weeks! After a couple of days of trying it out, I returned it to the store for a full refund. February 12, 2016
