Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Showed up with Big Air Leak Product performs well, but leaks air continuously from a fitting. We tried to tighten to no avail. This shows poor quality control on the manufacturer's end. Not a giant issue, but I still need to get a service person out to fix a brand new product. Not happy. January 2, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Watch out for cheap aluminum tubing! Look at the picture of this unit. See that copper tube connecting the motor to the tank? On newer models that has been switched to aluminum tubing as a cost-saving measure. Ours sheared off after one month of commercial use. Looking at the broken tubing, it was incredibly cheap and flimsy feeling for commercial grade. Luckily we had our old compressor still and were able to scavenge the copper tube from it. This is a strong compressor otherwise. If you purchase one, and see that aluminum tubing, start looking for a copper replacement piece because it will not hold up to steady usage. October 1, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by disappointment i had a cambell hausfeld compressor for 6 years in my shop, it went bad , actually caught fire, so I ordered this one on line , a choise between an ingersol rand which is better, when I got this husky , its made by cambell hausfeld, it work fine , for how long who knows September 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by i,m happy this product save you time and money and it has the power you need for most home garage uses.i can run my inpact wrench with constant 90 psi and it doesn't lose power,even when holding the trigger continuously for several minutes.i even use this compressor for my larger sand blaster and it holds up just fine,and that uses a lot of air.this compressor is very quiet from the one i had before and it's very easy to hook up and maintain.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Spend Your Money On Something Else Junk plain and simple. Had to repair it the day it was delivered. A small hose was cheaply connected, but was easy to repair. Two months later the input line into the tank cracked and blew off. It was made of cheap aluminum. The next thing to go was the electric motor. This was after 6 months of light use and the correct amount of voltage to the unit. When I contacted HD to get warranty info they just sent me to Campbell Hausfeld. CH was nearly impossible to reach on the phone. I finally talked to a guy in my area(which I found on my own) that was a warranty center for CH and he said it could be up to a month before anything was repaired. Bottom line is save your money and buy an Ignersol Rand and be done.I ended up just buying another brand motor made in Ohio for $350.00. I could have bought a IR and not have had to work on anything. You may get a warranty but it is meant to be a pain so they don't have to warranty it. Cheaper is not always cheaper. March 13, 2014
