Customer Questions & Answers

would this unit be suitable for outdoor use? kept outside regularly?

would this unit be suitable for outdoor use? can it be kept outside regularly?
Asked by: steve
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.

Can I reweld the motor/compressor bracket to the side of my 60 gal Husky Pro to carry sidewise on my truck

I bought a 60 gal husky Pro air compressor. I work out on the road. Can I reweld the motor and compressor on the side of the tank and can I plug in to a generator to run the compressor?
Asked by: Husky
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 start the motor correctly. It eventually caused the electric motor to fail.

Has anyone figured out how to make a better oil drain for this compressor?

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
Asked by: tburges
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 reputable company. 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.

what tipe oil do i use

Asked by: Anonymous
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).

For light jobs that do not require the pump to run for any extended time it is fine. Don't expect the compressor to produce the rated cfm. The pump struggles to reach the set psi. and takes a long running time to reach it. .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Value - With Foreknowledge of Issues This compressor seemed like the best value for the money, hands down. And I still think it is. The compressor is a Campbell-Hausfeld unit that gets the Husky name for Home Depot. I've seen the same unit with other names on it for more money, reinforcing my belief that the Husky incarnation is a great deal. THE GOOD: I have used this compressor for everything from filling bike tires to sandblasting and have had no problems whatsoever. It keeps up well even when sandblasting and performs without complaint. Quiet is a relative term and while I don't think it's as near-silent as some reviewers seem to feel, it isn't bad at all for an air compressor. Set up is relatively easy if you're comfortable doing the wiring and plumbing necessary. Read the instructions closely and you won't have a problem. THE BAD: I had some initial problems getting set up as I was missing a couple pieces and the owner's manual was torn when I bought the unit. A phone call solved these issues with relative speed. If you purchase the compressor without knowing that you'll need a shut-off valve, regulator, coupling and piping to put it all together, you're in for a bit of surprise. Make sure you understand before you buy what you'll need to get this thing operational. The pressure switch is cheaply made and the wiring necessary isn't exactly set up to make things easy. You're forced to bring your wiring in and make a tight 90 degree turn with it before connecting it in a small space. Now, considering that you're likely to be using a fairly large gauge of wire this isn't as easy as it might be if you were connecting something a bit smaller and more flexible. OVERALL: A great deal if you're prepared for the extra items you'll need to purchase. Even if you weren't quite ready for that, it isn't too painful. I can live with a pressure switch that I felt was a bit inadequate since it seems to work and saved me a bunch of money (though I would've rather spent another $20 and had something a shade better in that department).
