Questions & Answers


How much do it cost

Asked by Me October 11, 2017


unknown gas emitted from machine

Asked by BrennerSigns March 16, 2017

You should return it and don't buy a Husky.

My compressor wont build up pressure and it turns off

Asked by Marv January 26, 2017

There's a tank pressure gauge, and a regulator. Is the regulator set low, and the tank pressure getting up to its max when it turns off? If so, adjust the regulator higher. Otherwise, if even the tank isn't gaining pressure, then the drain valve at the bottom may be open. Turn it 90° and try again.

Can i use this 20 Gal. Air compressor for painting a car?

Asked by Mhalou January 16, 2017

It depends on the CFM and pressure requirements of your paint gun. If the compressor's CFM output specs meet or exceed it, you'll be fine. Otherwise you may be waiting around a lot for the compressor to catch up.

Will this run an impact gun

Asked by Shawn January 10, 2017

Yes, for moderate duration of impact gun use this compressor will work.

I am waiting to hear back when it will be in stock. Do you have some time of time frame.

Why does my compressor shuts off before it reaches its cut off point.

Bought this product during a sale so it was a very good price. I wanted an air compressor that was capable of doing a lot of different compressed air tasks (painting, nailing) in addition to inflation, my primary focus. Product arrived on time as expected. Brought it home, opened it up and ... the nozzle for connecting the hose with was not working.The brass connector would not move more than a couple millimetres back and forth and inserting the hose did not pop it into place. Went back to the closest Home Depot and talked to their hardware guy. He said that the issue I had was a common problem for air compressors that were shipped around, as connectors can get damaged. My first impression of this compressor is rather poor, but my rating is based on overall impressions. I'd like to point out the two issues with this compressor that I took stars away for: 1. The hose connector bit is attached to a gauge with a limiter dial, which in turn is attached to another adapter and another gauge. If you put any force on the hose connector or, say, replace a defective nozzle, a lot of that force is put on the gauges and adapters and it may become loose. Also there's not a lot of room to work with if you have to replace a nozzle. It doesn't feel like an effective design. 2. When I installed the wheels, they weren't flush with the metal so they were at a negative camber, which may be the intended result. It just looks and feels odd, and a bit loose. In addition, the device is quite loud. I returned this item and used store credit to purchase their Dewalt model: http://www.homedepot.com/p/DEWALT-15-Gal-Portable-Electric-Air-Compressor-D55168/100497924 , much quieter and worked without issue. If the item had worked as expected, it would have been worth the price without a doubt. That said, I'm happier with the DeWalt.

Excellent Price and Quality
This Husky air compressor is quieter than my previous Kobalt compressor and delivers even pressure at the setting I choose. They are all noisy but this one is not AS noisy as some. The power tools were an unexpected bonus easily worth more than $50.

Great middle weight air compressor
This unit is a great upright air compressor. I particularly liked the fact the unit came with out an air hose because I could buy what I needed for my specific needs. The unit takes around 7 minutes to fill, and has a decent air flow 5.0 scfm @ 40psi & 4.0 scfm @ 90psi which is perfect for home garages, and house hold needs. The unit only requires two wheels to be put on and your up and running - I made sure I bought an air hose for my specific needs right away. The noise level isn't bad on this unit when you consider it's an air compressor- hey their loud.

Robust Air Compressor
This is an excellent value air compressor. The unit is a bit heavy so you'll need help getting it home. Setup a easy. All you need is to install the wheels and your good to go. The compressor is a bit loud but bearable. It takes about 7 minutes to till to max (150psi). The compressor can do 5.0 scfm @ 40psi and 4.0 scfm @ 90psi. This enough for most household projects and air tools. Overall I am very happy with this compressor, its easy to move around, recovery rates are decent and its well made. I would recommend this to any looking for a value 20 gallon air compressor!!

Plenty of Air
Couldn't ask for an easier, ready to use air compressor. The only thing I had to do was to put on the wheels, and these are no cheap wheels either. Very well made 7 inch wheels. After the wheels are on, it's ready to go. Just plug in a quick release hose and get to work. It took just under seven minutes to fill to its maximum pressure, 150 psi. Its small and easy enough to move around, if needed, and the pressure to do what I need around the house. Very well constructed. The gauges are up high and easy to read. It has a nice heavy duty cord, oil and maintenance free motor, 120v 1.5hp motor, 2 year manufacturer warranty. The weight on the label says 106lbs, but it feels lighter than that on the concrete floor. I maxed out the pressure and left it for a few days, no hose attached, and no loss of air at all. None! This is the perfect size and unit for around the house use and more. I really like this one.

This compressor has come really handy.
I don't have to worry about going to a tire shop now with my new product or other things I do at home around the house as a hobby. I am going to teach my kids and cousin how to use this product in all the ways of my knowledge. I was wanting this product for so long that my wife got it for me this Christmas.

Husky 20 GAL Portable Air Compressor is Awesome!
The features are a huge plus for me especially since the unit is oil-less. It's easy to move about and takes up a very small footprint compared to my old craftsman compressor. The maintenance for this compressor is almost non-existent with the only thing to remember is drain the tank from time to time. It doesn't take forever to fill to full as some people have mentioned (probably use to a larger model etc.) It is louder than an oil fill unit but that is to be expected with minimal lubrication but it surely shouldn't be a drawback unless you intend to use indoors and that is pretty unlikely. The customer service was excellent as, as soon as I walked up to the service desk, I was waited on almost immediately and helped by Kyle the store manager of all staff! What a pleasant purchase online and the pickup - they even had a staff person help me lift the unit in to the back of my Escape!! I keep my new "baby" in the storage room of the house when not using it. I have to create a secure location in the carport so is doesn't disappear :)

What will you be using it for?
I've been using this compressor constantly with a number of tools and have not had an issue. The true question you have to ask yourself is what will you be using this for? And making sure that the compressor matches with the the amount of air scfm the tools requires to operate good. Also, be sure to read the instruction manual before using. Things like draining the valve under it every hour can go a long way. What have i used this for? I recently painted a whole 4x4 short bed Nissan truck. Now i knew that a 20gal compressor was not going to keep up with painting the whole truck at one cycle so i painted sections at a time and then like the compressor refill to insure i had the recommended 40psi going through my Husky HVLP. The results where beautiful. I couldnt be happier knowing i spent 160 on this compressor. Below are the estimated continuous run times before the compressors starts to loss the tools recommended psi scfm due to not cycling fast enough to keep up. Husky Gravity feed HVLP- 3min @40psi Husky DA Sander- 2min @ 100psi Husky Air Blow Gun- 1min @100psi Harbor Frieght 3'' cutter- 2min @ 60psi Iwata Airbrush- For every @30psi Again, this compressor will not keep up for large projects such as painting a car. But it is possible if you do it in sections and have patience waiting for it to refill with air.

Not too big but not too small!
This Husky 20 gallon air compressor is an excellent addition to my garage wood shop. It is completely portable with the built in dolly system but in my application I will be keeping it stationary. I have a smaller pancake compressor that I take on jobs but it's not always sufficient or accessible in my shop projects. I ordered the RapidAir system from Home Depot to make the transition to a fixed air system much easier. This will allow me to have three wall mounted air access ports with the room to expand. This compressor at 150 psi max and 4.0 SCFM at 90 psi is more than plenty for all my woodworking applications. And with the 20 gallon tank it will cycle much less than my pancake compressor. This of course will save on my hearing. I've used it with a few finish nailers, staplers, and even my framing nailer with outstanding results! I would say the noise of this while cycling is about average for a typical compressor of this size. The moisture drain valve on the bottom is easily accessible and is tool-less in operation. The instructions are adequate and the only assembly was bolting the wheels on. It comes in an oversized box with the product in another box. This allowed for adequate cushion protection from the shipper while in transit. Overall, I am very pleased with this Husky brand compressor from The Home Depot!

Holy Special Effects Batman! Noisy but large tank does more jobs!
My 4 Gallon Air Compressor stopped working the month before I received this Husky. I used my 4 gallon weekly. A 20 Gallon Air Compressor is useful for film craft purposes. This came only needing wheels screwed on the bottom. The wheels should be bigger. I was't ready for something this large and heavy. It's portable, but still takes strength to move. Very loud when the tank is filling. I don't have a way to make a db test, but it might break a noise ordinance. I didn't find it took long to fill the tank compared to my 4 gallon. It filled to 150psi then shut off, as advertised. I like not having to use oil, but I understand oil compressors are less noisy. The narrow hose from my 4 gallon worked with this Husky, as pictured. I'll be upgrading to a larger hose. I plan on having a filled 20 gallon tank as a hurricane preparation. This is the first time I've had a big enough tank to create fx, if I do have any problems with leaking air, as some people have described, I will not mind taking it apart and securing seals. The now emotive Gerber Daisy and I say, anything can happen with a big compressor! I found it easy to use.
