Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OutbackJoe Great High Volume and PressuCompressor
This is a massive compressor. It stands almost 6 feet tall and weighs in at about 480 pounds. The two cylinder pump has a high volume cylinder and a high pressure cylinder. One feeds the next, on this cast iron compressor head. It also has a massive cast iron flywheel and fan that’s driven by a 220 volt motor thru a single V belt. It's definitely one for high volume or high pressure needs.
This compressor supplies all the air I need for any and all of my shop tools. From a small drill to a large 7" high speed grinder. Unless I am running a big grinder constantly there is now enough air to run more than one tool at a time. Since this compressor runs up to 175 PSI it has plenty of reserve pressure to quickly pump up 90 PSI truck tires. Smaller compressors have a hard time quickly filling anything high pressure since the pump cuts out in the 100 to 120 PSI range.
This compressor is designed to supply air to a shop, it will need a shut off valve and all piping to distribute air to all areas of your shop. It's not shipped with any tools or hoses; it's just the compressor with a 3/4" outlet. Since this is a 220 volt compressor it will need its own circuit and wiring. I won't go into the specifics of how to wire this for obvious reasons but if you are comfortable wiring your new compressor its straight forward. If you have any doubts contact a qualified electrician.
Since this is a tall and narrow compressor that’s top heavy it must be bolted to the floor. I used 4 - 5/16" x 2 1/2" lag bolts into lead molly's to mount it to my shops concrete floor.
I hoped that this compressor would be quiet enough to talk over when it's running and it is. It makes the most noise then the compressor comes up to pressure and dumps pressure out of the compressor head.
One note; this compressor will need to be run for a minimum of 20 minutes without building any pressure. Just free running to break in the cast iron compressor head.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JOJO PUMP KNOCK, SERVICE IS A JOKE
PURCHASED THIS COMPRESSOR FOR MY BUSINESS. WORKED OK FOR 9 MONTHS. THEN HAD A HEAVY PUMP KNOCK. HUSKY CUSTOMER SERVICE IS A JOKE. MANAGER IS ON VACATION AND THEY CANT DO ANYTHING WITHOUT HER. THEY CANT FIND A SERVICE TECHNICIAN WITHIN 150 MILES TO FIX IT. AND PARTS WOULD TAKE 7-10 DAYS TO GET HERE. WASTE OF MONEY.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by builder Good but need to prep it
This is a nice reliable Compressor. I recommend you disassemble every fitting before you start it up. My tank had welding shavings and some sort of plastic in it, and the check valve was clogged with metal shavings. I did not check all this before hooking it up and ended up blowing the pressure switch from what I assume was over working from the clogged check valve. After I cleaned it out and replaced the pressure switch it has been running very good. Also make sure you get a good electrician to hook it up, the manual does not go over the necessary voltage but the husky customer service was helpful in helping my electrician.

Mine came with a cracked flywheel. Home Depot got me another flywheel. After the installation the pump knocked. 30 dayrrturn was up. Got a customer service call from the manufacturer . Rude .... Talked down to me.. Sent out a serviceman, replaced the pump and it still knocks.. It's a joke.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KENK Very heavy duty compressor for the price.
Very strong compressor that can handle any jobs. I installed this in my garage and bolted in down to the floor. You do need to do this as it can move during operation. I purchased some long hoses and set about installing wood floors in my home. This compressor worked great. It did not run out of air during the entire time I installed my floors with the nail gun. I am glad I have it out in the garage as it is a little noisy. You do need to get an electrician to install 220 power outlet and have some help moving to the place you want installed as it is quite heavy. Over all a good performing and a good value for the price as most compressors can get expensive. I look forward to completing a lot of jobs with the compressor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LEDEngineer Big Air!
This is a big compressor for a small shop / garage, but at 80 gallons it provides great capacity. I use it mostly for air tools, an air over hydraulic pump, and a large plasma cutter; but also all the little things like airing up tires.
The tank is well made, and ASME certified. Noise level is about average for this type of compressor - not a bad thing, but if you use it in a small space like a garage, it can be noisy. However, with the large capacity, it's really nice because it doesn't run as often. I checked the air for oil, and it was very clean, which means that the piston seals well. I use a fairly small oil filter and a dessicant dryer, and the result is super clean and dry air.
The pump, motor, switch and other mechanical parts seem to be very good quality. So far I've had no problems, no loose parts or any leaks. All in all, I like this compressor and I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for some serious air.
