Husky Air Compressor Reviews

The Husky name has been synonymous with quality and performance for home and medium duty industrial uses. Their power air tools are currently manufactured by the Campbell Hausfeld Company.

How to Buy - Select Husky Air Compressors?

There is a wide variety of Husky compressors to choose from ranging from hand-held Husky portable air compressors to commercial 80 gallon units. With such a variety, they can be practically used on all types of applications like spray guns, grinders and even sanders.

Husky compressors have both vertical and horizontal models - vertical ones taking less storage area. But the horizontal models are more portable and can be moved around with ease.

The main difference between the two types is that they deliver different amount of CFM of compressed air. Husky horizontal air compressors deliver lesser air than their vertical counterparts. For this reason most of the people buy larger sized devices. But if your needs are small and you use it seldom, then buying a small unit makes more sense.

As a rule of thumb, buy those units which have more number of reviews and have explicit manuals, and clear indication that they have plenty of replacement parts. Check for availability of essential parts, like Husky air compressor pump and regulator among other as equally important electronic gadgets.
