Review of Husky 8 Gallon Air Compressor

Recommended Posts

Hey TIA and crew
Today I have a review of the Husky 8 Gallon Air compressor.
Price: $80
SCFM: 4.0 SCFM
Max PSI: 125 PSI
Model number: TA-2530A
Horse Power: 1.5 Horse Power
This is my first personal air compressor and I honestly love it. My main use for this compressor are framing and using a palm nailer. (Review to come on those shortly) For those two applications, it works perfectly fine. I have also used this compressor to inflate car tires, and it obviously worked for that. The current price of this compressor at Home Depot is $129, but I bought it on black Friday for $80. This unit also has a handle and wheels. Assembly was less than 5 minutes. Assembly entailed putting the wheels on, putting the handle on, and putting the air filter on. This unit does require oil. This unit is loud but not very loud. There is also a regulator to regulate pressure to your tool. The air compressor is also light enough to lift in and out of a vehicle. There is also a quarter turn tank drain located on the bottom of the tank. A bottle of oil is included. If you are in the market for a small easily movable air compressor, I would recommend this unit to you.

Ratings:
Price: 5 out of 5
Durability: 5 out of 5
Value: 5 out of 5
Ease of transport: 5 out of 5

Good review George.

Those style of compressors are a PIA to move around in and out of cars and trucks, they're way to top heavy and spill oil everywhere

Nice review George! Keepem coming bro!

Thanks buddy. Good first review. For a young man too.
