  • 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!!

  • Somewhat noisy and takes awhile to build pressure.

  • Had is for about a month now. Unit is somewhat slow to build pressure and can take about 4 minutes to get to pressure. Motor is a little noisy also but that is to be expected somewhat with a oil less motor pump.Build quality is great and portability is fine. Controls are easy to access as is the hose connections. Dialing in working pressure is also easy.Over all not a bad garage or small shop compressor. The oil less motor longevity has yet to be determined though.

  • Really like my new compressor. Great size for home garage. Plenty of air storage for my uses (car repair, cleaning, inflatable pool, etc.). This compressor is a little loud, as to be expected, but not so loud as to be a nuisance.

  • I bought this to do the occasional car repair. It is a little loud when the compressor is on but it's not that bad really. It has enough cfm's to run the impact wrench and a large enough tank to do some work before having to refill it. It fairly portable for it's size.

  • I am totally satisfied with my Husky 20 Gallon Portable Air Compressor. It required minimal assembly right out of the box. The 2 wheels were the only items I had to install and that took about 15 minutes. The compressor fills the tank quickly and the gauges are positioned where they can be seen and read easily. I wheeled it from garage to driveway with ease to inflate tires.

  • I have a 30 gallon Husky electric compressor and I've been using it for a number of jobs, but I figured having a somewhat smaller compressor that I can take with me to Jobs would be more beneficial.The fully rubberized wheels are very sturdy and make it very easy to transport this around, if needed. There are gauges on the top of the compressor to aid in monitoring PSI .Very versatile, and a great price point!

  • The compressor has made the repairing of the garage a lot easier and the capacity it has to cover different tools makes it multipurpose. It is a big bulky and more of a stationary use but it has made the project a lot easier.

  • 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.

  • Coming from a Speedway 2gal twin stack, this is pretty impressive; fills in about 4 minutes, very smooth and responsive valve; I blew out the three car garage and still had to bleed it down to 20psi to use the water valve -- which on this is in fact a paddle-valve, vs the finicky brass bolt on the speedway.It comes with a 1/4" brass quick connect female, no hose; 12 or 14 gauge power cord, wheels that connect in seconds with a couple of wrenches.Mine arrived poorly packaged with a cracked plastic shroud -- the shroud is pretty thick, so it had to have been a pretty big hit to crack this presumably in shipping. I'd definitely get one in store -- the prospect of lugging this back to the store, let alone shipping it back is enough to keep it as a doorstop.

  • For $200 this compressor is a steal. Also very light for its size. Ready to run right out of the box. No break in period. No oil so really no maintenance. Great to use with a paint sprayer or a nail gun. Sits on wheels so is easy to maneuver around. Drain/Release valve is on the bottom of the tank. Gauges seem sturdy and accurate.
