This question is from 30 Gal. Portable Electric Air Compressor
Asked by

February 10, 2013
Is this model also sold as a 'Husky 30-Gal. Portable Electric Air Compressor'? The latter is available in store and cheaper... But the Husky demo in my store was red and the website picture shows the it as black. And it's not clear from the instructions manual for the Husky whether it can really wired for 240V.

Answer: 
The fog is slowly dissipating. Home Depot stores have two almost similar Husky compressors sold under the same SKU (723883). One is the black C301H, which appears to support 240V. And the other one is the VT6315, which doesn't. I went to two stores (#630 and 622) that showed online to have inventory of the black C301H. But both only had the red VT6315. This duality of two UPC/models under the same SKU Read More

I'm ready to buy the C301H, if I can find one in the store. And calling ahead doesn't help, as store people look in their system and report me the number for the VT6315,.. Read Less

Thank you for your questions regarding this unit.
This Powermate unit and the black C301H Husky unit are manufactured by the same company. The red 30-gallon Husky unit has a different manufacturer.
The black C301H can be wired for 240V. The Husky 30-gallon unit and the Powermate 30-gallon unit are quite similar. We would suggest reviewing the spec information and choosing whichever brand you think will

Answer: 
Hi Xristian, I reached out to the technical folks at Powermate and this is what I found out for you.Yes Powermate manufactures the Husky model you're asking about. However the Husky model can not be wired for 240 volt, where as the Powermate model can be wired for dual voltage 120/240.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good air compressor I bought this to replace an aging Craftsman compressor that had gotten so loud I could barely stay in the garage with it running. It finally got to the point it would only build 60psi so I bought this one. This is a MUCH better unit! it builds more air pressure, it's quieter and the tank seems to hold pressure for days! If you need a medium sized compressor this one is worth the money. May 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by As a professional, hobbyist, or Backyard mechanic. This is the unit that is worthy of it's value and resources to perform. My Automotive Business's oil-less compressor died in the middle of a paint job and because of all the positive comments on the Powermate 30Gal Portable Compressor I decided to order and wait a week for the delivery to the H.D. store submitted in the order. To date (one month) I have not been disappointed in either the purchased product or the delivery process from HomeDepot. I can now perform all my current projects and hear the phone ring and carry a conversation with customers while the compressor's running. Everything and more than I needed to sustain the business and thanks to all that submitted comments on this product. Owner and CEO, Tino December 13, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Old discription at homedepot.com Home Depot has an old description of this compressor. First the compressor does NOT have pneumatic tires but hard rubber tires. Steel safety cage is gone and replaced with the same plastic cage used on the C301H Husky. Drain valve is only a finger screw that is had to work. I had to order another one as this one is binding and only turns about a 1/2 a turn. Feet are nothing more than a flat piece of rubber that does not mount to the compressor. They fall off when ever you move the compressor. Manual recommends a 20 amp breaker, not a 15 amp. Compressor runs quietly and take about 6.5 min. to fill. Once the compressor filled to 155psi everything was fine. As it dropped to 120 and started to refill it trips the breaker about 25% of the time. I took the safety cover off to see if the belt was too tight. The belt was twisted. Got that straitened and so far it has not tripped the breaker, time will tell. As I just got this yesterday I can not speak to long term use. If I had to do it again I would just get the Husky. It has a 135 psi max pressure but they stock it in the store, has pneumatic tires and you can check it out before you buy. By the was the electric motor says it is a 1.8 HP vs the 1.6 HP stated in the description. October 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy with this compressor so far. I've owned this compressor for about 4 weeks and only used it 3 or 4 times to power a brad gun. I am very happy with it so far. Just the right size for my garage/shop. It runs smooth and quiet. Easy to move around. It is a high quality product and a great buy. January 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome compressor for the price. Much quiter than oilless compressors I've had in the past! Among the best compressors in it's price range. Was sluggish and would blow the breaker during hot restarts on an unloaded 15 amp circuit, So I ran a new 20 amp circuit, and now it always restarts without hesitation(wanted a 20amp outlet in the garage anyways for other tools). It's the perfect garage/shop compressor. Perfect for my main air tools....impact guns and grinders, but also keeps up well with my HVLP paint gun well too. Only annoying thing is the drain is a knarled screw that's hard to grab under the tank, will probably replace this next time I get out to the hardware store. July 18, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not really a 110 Purchased this on line. Had to pay the $55 shipping because they wouldn't ship to store. Read the instructions that said it came with no oil in it, thought I would check anyway since I couldn't see anything in the sight glass. Use a socket to break the drain plug loose, a crescent wrench will just round it off because it's in there so tight. Needless to say it was full of oil. Drained it down to where it sould be in the sight glass and was good to go. It kept kicking the 15 amp breaker out. Finally had to rewire the motor to 220 so it would start like it should. So far it's doing what it should, but it only has an hour run time on it. We'll see how it does after 50 hours. December 22, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Store items are not what is described.online. We wanted this unit because of the 'V-Twin' pump and dual voltage motor. After visiting 4 stores in the area and being told that the unit has been substituted with another equivalent model we have given up. The substituted model is single voltage motor with a side by side pump. Still the same price though. We were told by HD customer support that 'For this particular product, the product may vary in features and appearance from different markets.' ???? Does this mean that in Seattle the item will have the features described but in St Louis the item is allowed to be different. The features on the compressor in the local stores are lower in specs and also the physical size is different. To the uninitiated, watch out what you are getting, you will be disappointed. December 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 30 Gallon Portable Twin Pump Compressor Very powerfull, and once is full, it take as little as 90 second to fill back to 150 PSI after use. I used it extensivley in my home shop for every thing needed with air tools. I have been using it every day for the last two weeks. Need almost a dedicated 20A line. Very well made, excellent desighn, Twin power motor makes it nice to have, lots of pressure and oil lubricated twin pump is vey quite. I should had this compressor a long time,and quit messing around with oiless compressors as I did for years. For the serious DIY home shop, this is the only way to go. April 10, 2012
