Answer: 
Yes, provided you have a suitable cover to protect it from direct rain and snow. My compressors are all outdoors under a cover that keeps rain and snow from falling directly on them. You'll need to be sure to keep the tank drained of moisture so install a drain cock if one doesn't come with yours.

Answer: 
If I were to store this outdoors, I would, at the very least, have it under a cover or awning to prevent rain from coming in contact with the motor & swtich assembly. I would advise against having it outdoors & exposed to contact with rain. Onother area of concern would be the exposed air filter & oil cap/valve assembly. It's best to have it stored indoors.

Answer: 
I've seen similar ones outside but they usually are built into a little vented shed or at the very least have
some kind of shed roof built over it to keep moisture off of the electric motor and pressure switch.

Answer: 
You could reposition the pump/motor bracket to the side of the tank. Obviously, you would have to reroute the air input lines. However, You'll likely void any warranty on the unit in doing so.
Make certain that your generator has sufficient power to supply the start-up requirements on the compressor motor. I burned up a good compressor motor using a generator that did not supply enough in-rush current to

Make certain that your generator has sufficient power to supply the start-up requirements on the compressor motor. I burned up a good compressor motor using a generator that did not supply enough in-rush current to start the motor correctly. It eventually caused the electric motor to fail.

Answer: 
Rewelding or welding anything to this tank is a very bad idea. These tanks have been pressure tested and rated. Making any altercations to the tank could cause it to fail and possibly cause great bodily injury/death. It is not a good idea.
A horizontal compressor should be used for your needs.
This can be run off of a generator rated for 240v @ the minimum suggested breaker amperage.

Answer: 
NO. Welding on the tank should never be done. However, you can unbolt the motor and compressor from the existing bracket and mount them on another bracket - either find an old unit and use the bracket from that, or simply make your own. An aluminum plate works great, it's easy to drill. The bonus about doing it this way is that you can use the empty bracket that's still attached to the tank to bolt the Read More

Home Depot sells the extra things you'll need, which will be some copper tube (probably 3/8), and all the fittings. Read Less

It's very messy to change the compressor oil so I bought some 1/4 inch plumbing tubing to extend the
drain but it's a different size. The drain bolt is about a 12mm size and threads are fine instead of course like American plumbing threads. Thanks

Answer: 
You could get some 1/4 inch un-threaded pipe and find someone who has a coarse thread die to thread the pipe or buy a cheap die from somewhere. A local automotive or plumbing shop might do it for you as well. Then find an end cap or a 1/4 inch air shut off valve to fit on the pipe extension. if you go with the air shut off valve, make sure to use a good pipe joint compound from Oatey or some other Read More

I haven't actually done this yet, but many people have had good results using this method and this is what I plan to do the next time I change the oil. Good luck. Read Less

Answer: 
Yes. Next time you drain the pump, install a threaded tube (preferably brass) that extends past the pump mount that you can cap off on the end. Then you can hang a small coffee can or something on the tube with a short piece of string or wire so it will hang while the oil drains. Let me know if you need a photo of my set-up.

Answer: 
Typically you would use a 30 weight, non-detergent, compressor oil. It really depends on the environment the compressor is exposed to at start-up. If you live in Alaska (for example) you may need to use a lighter oil (20W or 15W).

Answer: 
Purchase the Husky 30wt compessor oil. In accordance to the Husky Use & Care Manual for this compressor;
"Use air compressor oil
only. Multi-weight automotive
engine oils like 10W30 should
not be use in air compressors.
They leave carbon deposits
on critical components, thus
reducing performance and
compressor life."

Hi, T Rex.
From looking at the Use & Care Manual (here: http://thd.co/19Q2sjg), it does advise on page 7 to use Mobil 1 10W- 30.
If you have any further product/technical/care questions, please give the tech support team a call at 800-543-6400 with your model number.
Thank you!

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 73 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by awesome air compressor Very nice 60 Gallon air compressor i would recommend keeping the plait on the compressor and useing rubber padding under the plait this helps in keeping the noise down my friends have them bolted right to the concert all the are is noise makers in my opinion this compressor with the dual cylinders is fast at keeping tools running and not losing all your air has nice valve under compressor and on top for releasing air to hoses hope it last many years Father son project hope it last like the one in my day August 4, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome air compressor This is a total up grade from are old compressor i like the easy to use air release on the top and bottom great on off button easy wire to inlet i'm not the smartest tool in the shed when it come's to installs my son did it at 18 to gather he got it done presser holds well have been real happy on the things he has done so far the oil was a easy change have seen people complain about the oil change i use a lawn mower drain that goes in a funnel in to a quart of empty jug no drips i'm old not a winner we used the pallet i no it's a no no but listen you my find this will help with the noise that i have seen a lot of people complain about i also used Harbor freight rubber pads under the pallet it's quiet level and your not drilling into your concert and then got cracks in your concrete and if you want to move it's easy over all i hope this will last for my son back in the day i worked around these in the out door stalls never had a problem with any of it had air to spar only can hope the same for this August 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent purchase Had a 30 gal prior to this purchase, great buy, mine takes 60 seconds to fill to my 140 psi setting which is above factory recommendation, had this for about 7 years now, replaced belt twice still runs great, had a 20 gal connected converting this one to an 80 gal easily filled in about the same amount of time, over time design may have changed I still highly recommend purchasing. July 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Motor Burned Out in about 4 Months My first Husky of comparable size lasted about 7 years. This one didn't make it 5 months. The Marathon Electric motor burned out. 2 year warranty was worthless. June 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Air compressor This is my second year compressor used and abused my last one for 12 years so far very happy with this one March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Had since fall of 2008- 0 problems under heavy DIY use Got this in 08, use all the time in my home garage building and restoring cars. I use it a lot- many times per week. I even use it to power my sand blast cabinet. If I run it constantly like that, I always give it a 10-15 min break after a half hour or so- its in my basement (air conditioned) and plumbed out to the garage which keeps it cooler and air intake cleaner. I change the oil very regularly and drain the tank after every use. I haven't had a single issue with it. For sandblasting, it works, but you have to use a small nozzle so its pretty darn slow- no problem keeping up with impacts, sanders, etc. May 1, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Value Investment I've had this unit for about 10 years now, and it's been a great asset. It is for home use, not industrial. Needs to run continuously for grinders, blasters, sanders, etc. It will run hot under these conditions. It's loud. After 10 years, I'm now seeing more oil in tank when draining condensation, but no surprise. I change oil and airfilters as suggested. Best to mount in location where there is air flow around the unit. I connected mine to a 30' galvenized manifold to extract more condensation - works great. Manifold is split for 'clean' air and 'oiled' air. For the home, this has been a great investment. Should have bought 15 years earlier. June 5, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Is as described I bought this compressor as an upgrade from the 8 gallon compressor I was using. I use it to run (not at the same time), a blast cabinet, HVLP gun, airbrush, car tire inflator, and blow guns. It works great for all of these. I run it pretty consistently and it never lags behind, even while running the blast cabinet. I'm currently in the process of setting up a water removal system with PEX and copper piping, drain valves, and filters. If you're going to use this for painting, make sure you set up a filter, as it runs pretty warm, and warm means condensation. I have no complaints about the compressor itself, as it does exactly what it claims to do. May 11, 2012
