Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by OnTheWeb Cute, but stay away from this one
Purchased first one for basement remodel. It had a slow leak right out of the box. Also, when you turned it back on the next day it would not pump up the tank again without first removing the air hose. As soon as you disconnect the air hose the tank would begin to fill up properly instead of just sitting there running and not building up pressure. Seems like some kind of bizarre regulator issue.
After several days of that we returned the first unit and replaced it with a brand new one. Right out of the box it also had a slow leak so it would turn on every 15 minutes and recharge the tank.
If it worked properly it would be a nice little portable unit. However, I could not recommend anyone buying one because of the obvious manufacturing issues.

I recently purchased this upgraded version of the Husky 4 gallon compressor. I have used it several times now for small projects around the house with a finish nailer and a brad nailer and am pleased with this product. It is a little loud but not excessive.

It's an okay compressor, it is extremely loud. Ear protection is required when operating the machine in the same room.
It fills the tank very quickly, features two tanks, and two sockets for your air tools to operate at the same time.
I'm having trouble with the auto-shutoff feature. When power is turned on, the compressor continues to fill the air way past the rated maximum pressure point in the tank and output port, the machine just does not automatically shuts off... Which is kinda scary, and I'm definitely gonna return this unit, maybe look for another unit with quieter operation and working safety features....

The wheels fell off within six months. Now the compressor doesn't shut off.

Bought this a year ago to use in our company. We ran it 3-4 hours a week installing trim. Aft a year it wouldn't stop running. We suspected the limiter switch but we talked to a service rep and he admitted that the compressor had a flaw where the vibration causes all of the joints to leak so it won't ever fill to capacity. He then recommended we either replace ALL the fittings ourselves or send it back and pay $100 plus shipping to do so. I think not. I bought this to replace a Porter Cable red pancake that I had since 1996. Sadly I had to retire that one because one of my guys left it on the back of his truck as he drove off and hitting the road killed the poor old thing (RIP). In all those years I had only replaced two parts.
Another thing. The wheels on this are attached with a simple hex head bolt that easily loosens with the vibration. Many times we went to roll it around and had to stop and put the wheels back on.
Overall, poor engineering and quality. Husky used to mean quality. Now they are on par with Loews Kobalt series. Please label these tools "pure junk: amateur-use only. Not for professional use."

I have only had compressor for about two weeks, but thus far it has been very good. I like to dual tanks so that I can run two accessories without having to switch out. The pressure regulator is helpful and is able to produce enough pressure for floor nailer and other larger accessories that I run. It is not a quiet compressor by any means, but it is not louder than average.

Bought this for spray painting cabinet doors and installing hardwood floor and it performed well. Good for tires and floor nailer and staplers. Holds the air just fine, only thing is a minor problem is the tank drain valve, located under the unit.
