Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jofaboards This Husky replaced a 21 gal compressor
I build custom speaker cabinets and pedalboards for guitar players and I had been using a HF 21 gallon compressor for quite some time. It started to go and then finally last week, that was it. I shopped around for a new compressor and I wanted one that would be able to do everything I need (finish nailing, framing, etc.). The product display at the Home Depot was very helpful in deciding which to get.
So I decided on the Husky 8 gal.
Amazing performance and so much less of a footprint than my mammoth 21 gal. Quieter running, doesn't get as hot and the PSI adjustment dial is dead on accurate.
Yes, it runs a bit more often because it doesn't have the 21 gal capacity but it only runs in short spurts. The great thing is that I can take it with me to do side jobs which makes me more efficient.
At $129 and with the backing of the Home Depot, this really is a heck of a product. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by RoninTex Best Compressor in Class for Dollars Spent
Great Buy! For the money, this is the best compressor I've found in this size. Quiet and very efficient and dependable. NO AIR LEAKS in manifold. I bought two so far and both work flawlessly;y. Small footprint and very portable. Just remember to use the included cheap break in oil to break it in, then after you break it in, drain ALL the oil out and replace with Pennzoil Platinum fully synthetic oil 5-30. Also if it fails to start when cold as some of the morons have stated in other reviews, it is simply too long an extension cord or very poor extension cord.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jan32 Great air compressor!!
I bought this Husky 8 gal air compressor a year ago and had used in many projects around the house. I used to build a new shed, a pergola, a drafting table and some roof work. I work with wood and use nail guns and I gotta say this little compressor can keep a framing gun working like any other bigger compressor. I even used a hvlp gun to paint the Pergola and the shed and it works perfectly so if you're looking for some medium/heave rate work compressor I'm sure this one would do the job. I did a Lot of research and couldnt find any better so I'm glad I made the right choice

Rated 4 out of 5Â by SoCalFurnitureMaker Great for the woodworking hobbyist
This compressor has done a great job powering my brad nailer, air hosing out the woodshop, and an HPLV paint sprayer. The oil got dirty quite swiftly, so I'll be doing an oil change soon. Hopefully it is related to cheap oil shipped with the project, and not the compressor itself. I am hoping this will be a valuable addition to my woodshop family for a long time.
The instruction manual is sloppy at best and it took a bit to really get the hang of using this thing, but it's fairly simple once you do.
