Questions & Answers

Is it the same as the Husky?

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.
Asked by: Xristian
Good Question the Husky seems like it is exactly the same unit except for the maximum PSI output is different Powermate claims 155psi, the Husky claims 135psi.

Customer Reviews

30 Gal. Portable Electric Air Compressor is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have not used much, but overall happy with compressor. The bleed valve on the bottom of the tan... I have not used much, but overall happy with compressor. The bleed valve on the bottom of the tank was difficult to get to and I purchased a separate extension for this. Also product description reports and shows pneumatic wheels, but hard solid wheels were delivered. I saw another review with similar comment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from What happened to the tires? Don't expect to see the tires as pictured on the air compressor you'll receive. The tires are the cheaper, solid tires that work good on a smooth surface. Oh well, or maybe I got the odd compressor of the lot. More than a little disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works very well in my shop Low noise. A few parts easy to assemble. I like the vertical rather tan the hoizonital configuraton better. Easy to roll around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far...So Good !!!! Product arrived exactly on schedule in good condition (Roadway Transportation). Their on line 'tracking' was excellent and they called before delivery and accommodated a special delivery time request which was accomplished exactly as promised by a very friendly/helpful driver. Driver waited while I quickly unboxed unit to check for any hidden damage Have one week of moderate use and unit is performing as advertised and expected. Pros: * Low noise level. * Oil serviced to correct level. * Zero to 155 psi in 7.5 minutes (after shut off slowly leaked down to 147 psi and then holds) Cons: * Removed belt guard to check pully alignment and belt tension. Belt had placed over pulleys but was completely loose/relaxed and had NEVER been properly tensioned. Compressor and motor had not been tested as a unit as the gray paint on the inner face of the motor pulley was in perfect/new condition with no belt tracking. * Tank drain is valve has a tiny knurled knob that is impossible to open without use of needle nose/long pliers. Also... operators manual shows a 'winged' style valve rather than the 'knob' style currently used... but either type of valve is excessively difficult to open/close due to minimal space between tank bottom and ground. Had to buy/install a 'close' style 1/4" 90 degree brass elbow, 6" 1/4" pipe nipple and ball valve to provide reasonable access for tank drainage. * Rubber 'slip-on' pads for support legs are pretty weak.... but can be replaced with some 1/4" heavy neoprene rubber sheeting if needed. NOTE: Mfg. includes a separate "NOTICE" instruction sheet requiring the unit to initially operated for 30 minutes at zero tank pressure (drain valve 'OPEN')..... which is important. However there was no mention/recommendation involving a time frame for removing/replacing the initial 'run-in' oil. Called the mfg. customer service to report the belt tensioning problem and ask their opinion about replacement period for run-in oil. They said they recommend replacement of initial oil at 8 to 10 hours of normal use. I asked why they didn't state that on the "Notice" sheet..... for which they had no answer ( ?!?!). Also this compressor requires use of 'Synthetic" compressor oil.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid good construction So far , so good, only Con: as usual with uprights, the pet cock / drain valve is difficult to access / use, would have been better designed with a 'L' trap for easier access when draining system of water. The unit is top heavy.
