Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mitchell 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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Pro 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brandon 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bill 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ten32 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer 60 gallon single stage
overall a great compressor. my only complaint is the on/off switch knob pops out, but still works ok. also i bought a new tank drain at H.D. that works way better. I repair a lot of cars so I am always using this unit. Always works fine and what a great deal. It runs everything i throw at it as it should. would recommend a 2 stage if your going to do a lot of bodywork, but this compressor will still run a D.A. fairly well. One of the best purchases I've gotten. I've been running it for about two and a half years now. Just wanted get some real time on it so I could leave a review that carries some weight. Hope this helps cause I have never regretted buying this compressor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ZMcElroy Very Great Product! A Must Have!
I just installed the air unit and it is great. It is a lot quieter than the 3.5 gallon unit I have. It also has no vibration to it for the most part. We left it on the pallet and it works perfect. I would see no need to bolt it to the floor. I have even used it for some sandblasting and it has done wonderful. This is one of the best purchases I have made for my garage in a long time and am extremely satisfied. The manual that comes with it provides you with great instruction on maintenance and set-up. If you are looking for an air compressor with high expectations and low cost this is the one for you!
