Rated 5 out of 5Â by DJDIVER SO FAR SO GOOD
I was hesitant to order this compressor after reading some of the horror stories in the reviews, but bought it anyway. Figured HD would stand behind it no matter what, they are that good in my experience. Only got this item this week but other than having to replace the quick disconnect outlet (leaked badly) the compressor works as advertised. Plan on using it for relatively light work but keeping my fingers crossed. It pressurized up to stated pressure in about 6 minutes and cycles on and off correctly. Like the large 20 gallon tank. Not much wear on the paint and such, shipping box protected it well.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by DonJ Obviously poorly reconditioned
This product performs well, however, the quality of the "Reconditioning" is poor. Plastic bezel around gauges is cracked in two places and the tank was repainted in a slightly different color and in a very poor manner. (Paint is already flaking off) Also, some decals are peeling off. Granted, the cosmetic slopiness does not affect performance, however, more care needs to be taken in the process of refurbishing. In addition, the hardware necessary to install the wheels and rubber snubber would not fit the axles. I had to buy the hardware to complete the assembly. Not the quality one would expect from The Home Depot. I would cautiously recommend this product. Quality control needs to be improved.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by chevydiver Good compressor for the money
Good solid compressor, not many in this price range can go to 150 psi. Typical of most compressors in this price range, it is very noisey. Otherwise seems to be of very good quality. The shroud was cracked and since packaging was not damaged, I suspect it was that way when packed. Have not bothered to call about getting a new one. Would strongly recommend this to anyone looking to get a low cost compressor that can do almost anything.

OK. The refurbished Husky arrived two days ago. I ripped the package open with my eager little hands and took out the machine. Hmm. It was pretty worn looking and one wheel was broken, but hey I wasnât expecting new perfection. I read the instructions and fired up the machine for a pressure test. My, it seemed EXTREMELY loud and rough. After a while, the pressure reached 140 psi and the pump quit rather than at its advertised maximum of 155 psi. Seemed a little weak, for sure. A very loud hissing sound was audible. That also didnât seem right. The valves were closed, everything obvious seemed tight. After some listening, I discerned that the noise was coming from deep inside somewhere under the pump housing. Not good at all. Pressure dropped pretty rapidly. After a few minutes, the pressure reached 120 and the pump kicked on again. At least that worked, but I obviously had a problem so I turned the unit off. It was going back. Using the safety valve and the drain valve I bled the remaining pressure. Wow. There was a lot of really rusty and ugly water coming out from under there. It even stained the concrete floor of my garage. The next day I called the customer service number. A very pleasant, but extremely young sounding woman answered the phone. I started describing the problems, and it quickly became apparent that she not only answered the phone but refurbished some of the units herself! I got a little worried. Eleven year olds seemed a little young for that kind of work. Anyway, she agreed there was a problem and I should return the unit to my closest store. Everyone was understanding at the store. They gave me a full refund and suggested that I go back online and just order another unit. Not a chance. Considering that shipping was $30, a brand new unit was only an additional $70. I bought one, took it home, and just finished running it in. Much quieter. Good pressure. No leaks. Nice and shiny. Itâs obvious to me that the refurbished units are not just lightly used units with an immediately apparent manufacturing defect. Many of these are heavily used machines that must have quit 11 months and 29 days into the warranty. These are cheap enough units anyway. Playing the lottery with a ârefurbishedâ one wasnât worth it.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by klaxrax1324 went bad after the 3rd use
had one of these for less than a month. used it 3 times for about 15 mins each to fix some cracks in the basement. the compressor was broke in properly and in a different room do to the dust from the cracks. after usage it was drained for storage in my basement. pulled it out today because the compressor and coils on my fridge needed some cleaning. plugged it in and turned it on and nothing happened. took it back and got another one. we will see how long this one last....all in all good price and will power everything i need it to do....just hope it last longer than the first one.
