Inferior hose product
2 Star Review   By Robert on Home Depot - Jan 4, 2012   

The connecting hose punctured near the machine after about five easy uses. The web site does not appear to have replacement parts. Very dissapointing service ability to not have replacement parts available on line.

Lasted less than a year - cheaply made and unreliable
2 Star Review   By Roady on Home Depot - Dec 28, 2011   

Got this air compressor primarily for our road bikes (which need up to 120 psi). The hose broke after a couple months. The unit itself worked ok but struggled to remain at 120 psi while filling tubes with air. A trick was to make sure to have the compressor running while filling tubes. Now the compressor won't compress more than 40 psi. I'm very disappointed to say the least and I do not reccommend this product unless value is your primary purchase criteria and you're ok with purchasing a product with poor reliability. Oh, one last thing: the costumer support number goes straight to a voicemail.

Good design.
5 Star Review   By Chief on Home Depot - Nov 3, 2011   

We use this compressor to support our fleet of 70 golf carts plus several course maintenance vehicles. In addition to being handy around the cart barn it is compact enough to use as an air tank to take out on the course to inflate flat tires in order to get carts back to the barn for repair. It is more versatile than I had expected. Great buy.

So far, so good
4 Star Review   By Rsteph on Home Depot - Sep 22, 2011   

Bought this to run a nailer/stapler. It did the just fine. Haven't had it long enough to comment on long term reliability. Relatively quiet. I agree that the hose that comes with it is pretty chinsy (but it hasn't blown yet). Had to go buy a quick disconnect (female) for the hose end. So far no leaking. It does want to "travel" on it's own while running on cement (or I suppose other hard) surface. I put a simple floor mat under it and it stayed put. Happy with it so far.

Good for light jobs
4 Star Review   By Puck on Home Depot - Apr 20, 2011   

Like most of the positive reviews have stated, this is a good machine for inflating and blowing the dirt off. Convienant storage compartment and a nice set of attachments included. Most of the negative reviews seemed to be about failure after only a few uses. I set mine up on the first day with a loose fitting on the hose that created a small leak. I let the unit cycle on/off all day. It would run for 15 seconds or so every two minutes to maintain 100psi. The back panel did become warm but not hot as is to be expected. After passing that test it is now a welcome part of my garage! 2 complaints, though. 1) cheap 90psi hose. 2) tendancy to roll/pivot on its wheels when running. Regarding the roll around handle; The display model at the store had rounded buttons that clicked in and held the handle in place. These have a tendancy to not stay in position and let the handle fall. When I got mine out of the box, I noticed that these have been replaced with larger cylindrical stops that are much more effective. Make sure that yours has the same. Also, do not pick the machine up with the roller handle. Use the carry handle!

Hunk Of Junk
1 Star Review   By toolpro750 on Home Depot - Mar 3, 2011   

I bought this to clean my tractor. I set it up, and it worked great at first. After I used it 3 times, it wore out. Now it is completely useless. It can't even blow dust around anymore, literally. This is a really junky, flimsy piece of equipment, and at $115, it is not even worth my time. I returned it the weekend after.

Great Machine
5 Star Review   By race15 on Home Depot - Jan 1, 2011   

Just got it for Christmas and already used it to clean out vacum cleaner. I think it will work great for small jobs, which is what I wanted it for. But if you need a lot of air pressure at one time you had better get a larger one.

You get what you pay for?
1 Star Review   By DCHomeowner on Home Depot - Dec 31, 2010   

This is the least rugged power tool I have ever owned. After using it twice I had to repair the power cord; because of a design defect it is near impossible for the power cord to not drag on the ground either when stowed or deployed. The power cord is so flimsy that brief and light contact with the ground abraded through to the wires. After one more use, the air hose burst while under pressure. This is a piece of junk; I won't buy another Husky product.

"Cool Tool"
5 Star Review   By Phoenatic on Home Depot - Nov 4, 2010   

I've had the unit for about a month and so far it's Perfect for what I had in mind I have a large compressor in the garage but needed a smaller one for the shed so I looked around and this unit caught my eye for cleaning air filters on the lawn mower and filling tires on the generator and dollies when they need it this thing work's perfect for those task's when you need a large compressor you should have one but when you need a quick fill up or to clean up a item this tool is the one it's light and has a quick Duty cycle in refilling the 1.5 tank infact alot quicker that I thought handles cleaning a filter with ease and even does a very good job in blowing off cleaning fluid when cleaning firearms all in all a Very good machine I would recommend this tool to a friend and if I ever need a nother one I'll buy the same one...Thumb's Up !!!

Great little compressor
5 Star Review   By Jimmydragon115 on Home Depot - Sep 11, 2010   

I was tired of seeing the OUT OF ORDER sign on all the local air pumps at the local gas stations. After reading the reviews from other people on the site I bit the bullet and bought this compressor. IT WORKED like a charm! Up and running in 10 minutes. All the tires on my van needed about 10 pounds of air and this little machine did it perfectly! Nice features and it's light weight. Quiet too! Can't go wrong for $100....

Great Compessor
5 Star Review   By Schuki on Home Depot - May 29, 2010   

I bought this compressor for refilling my car tires, and such things as inflating balls and swimming toys. This compressor meets that task perfectly. I love this compressor. Right out of the box, plug it in, and it is ready.

2 Star Review   By Jake4754 on Home Depot - Apr 11, 2010   

Paid only 79.99 for this model, was impressed for the price during the first year until the pressure knob broke and had to pay $14.00 for someone in Canada to ship a new knob. Did not fix the problem. Pressure knob has bolt that strips inside metal if not screwed perfectly straight & causes the pressure gauge and tools not to work. Will invest in another brand this time around.

husky 1.5 air scout
5 Star Review   By ronhonest on Home Depot - Apr 11, 2010   

i recently had a flat tire on my motorcycle and i bought this item at the home depot. it was easy to use out of the box. it inflated my tire enough so i could get to the dealership. that alone saved me 45.00 for the pick up fee. i have been wanting one for some time now and a glad i bought one. it is a must item for the home owner and pays for itself if you have to use it. great accessory pack

Nice compressor for Stapling and Inflating
5 Star Review   By Jeauxm on Home Depot - Mar 25, 2010   

The is a very nice compressor for running a staple gun or inflating stuff around the house. It only has 2 CFM at 90 psi so don't expect to run any air powered hand tools. I wanted to buy a air polisher to wax the sailboat in the water but one would need a monster of a compress to run that. This is a good deal for $99 which included the 2 n 1 nailer/stapler.

Air Scout Compressor
5 Star Review   By SeeUHome on Home Depot - Feb 23, 2010   

Just purchased the Husky Air Scout Compressor and my first impression was it is sooo much quieter than the larger Husky that I just had to replace. Even though it's only 1.5gal tank is smaller than my other Husky this unit is perfect for filling up my pressure pots for making parts!!

Compressor for all your needs
5 Star Review   By Jumpa on Home Depot - Feb 16, 2010   

This little red Husky can do the job, Don't let it's small size fool you. If you a just the regulator just right this Lil' Husky will keep you nailing all day long. Capable of exceeding 135 PSI & a 1.5 gallon tank is just enough for home needs or to build a house if you needed to. The day we brought it home I was pumping up everything in the neighborhood all the tires on the cars ,footballs, basketballs, soccer balls. I even used it to clean the gutters on the house as well as clean out the 3 computers in the house they get so full of dust it works GREAT. Why buy cans of air when you have this Lil' Red Husky Compressor. You cant go wrong with this compressor so buy it with confidence you will not regret it!

Took it back
1 Star Review   By CS00 on Home Depot - Nov 20, 2009   

I purchased this unit and attempted to put air in my RV tires, which take 92PSI. The chuck was difficult to use, and leaked, in spite of a good tight attachment. It recycled after only a short time. It would have taken me a week to inflate all 6-tires with this compressor. It may work well for car and bike tires, but didn't help with a large Class A RV .

The Air Scout
5 Star Review   By badboy01 on Home Depot - Nov 11, 2009   

I bought this unit on Nov 7. I've had it almost a week now. I really enjoy using this compressor. I put it through its paces soon as I got home. This unit is TOUGH! I used to air up the tires on my 2 cars, my lawn tractor (which I bought from HD), my 2 bicycles, and my wheel barrel. I let the compressor buildup air pressure to see if it will leak down. I left it alone for 1 hour. I went back to check it. The air pressure didn't drop. Excellent!!! I like the storage features and the telescopic handle. Very user friendly. I wish it came with an extra female quick connector. No big deal. I bought one. I plan on using my compressor to repair my fence. I believe it can handle the job.

great little unit
4 Star Review   By alexxxx on Home Depot - Oct 26, 2009   

Hey, I really enjoyed using this model, for inflating tires, spraying air to clean computers, or other parts, and etc. It worked great, and it has little or no maintenance to deal with. I had to donate it when I moved, but I will be buying one soon...

air compressor
1 Star Review   By compressor on Home Depot - Sep 10, 2009

Great Compressor!
5 Star Review   By Autobahnlady on Home Depot - Jul 14, 2009   

I have been looking for an air compressor for quite a while. I researched different brands and finally decided on the Husky. I like the fact that you can roll it around although it is lightweight. I use it mostly to maintain the air pressure in my cars and mower. In addition I use the air nozzle for cleaning out a variety of items. It comes in handy blowing debris out of the engine area of my yard equipment. I have not yet used the nailer but plan to use it for some remodeling. The hose coil is nice and compact and stores easily. The unit is very quiet compared to an old Black and Decker Air Station I have had for years. The only complaint I have is they should have a quick disconnect at the tool end. I added a quick disconnect to make changing tools faster. A perfect compressor for the home owner.

Husky Air Scout Compressor
4 Star Review   By Bklynboy on Home Depot - May 26, 2009   

Nice quiet little portable compressor - equal to light tasks ie, tire inflation, small air spraying. Very easy to operate - started right up - only drawback is the onboard air tank (small, but the unit is small - to be expected) and the supplied air hose and fittings are not the best quality. Buying another air hose with some quick disconnect fittings helps. But for the price, its size, quiet running and extreme portability makes it a worthwhile purchase!

Just what I was looking for
5 Star Review   By Eggrollonu on Home Depot - May 19, 2009   

I've been searching for a compressor for small around the house jobs and keeping the air in the cars/bikes in check and this works perfectly. It has a fold out storage area in the front for the hose and attachments that come with it and the pullout handle and wheels makes it easy to move around.

Great Buy
5 Star Review   By Pops42 on Home Depot - May 14, 2009   

Excellent product for the money. Light, easy to assemble, easy to move around. Also purchased Husky Inflator Gauge which I stronly recommend. Much easier to use with this addition. Would recommend to anyone.

Pure Garbage
1 Star Review   By EngineerAtHeart on Home Depot - May 13, 2009   

I bought this thing less than a year ago and it has completely fallen apart. It leaks more than the titanic and takes forever to fill a car tire. Recently, it has started to smell "hot" when operating, so I went ahead and got another real compressor to replace this. Pros: cheap, looks to be easy enough for the kids to use. Cons: a piece of junk that fell apart inside of a year of occasional use.

Perfect for a Renter
5 Star Review   By 22Vue22 on Home Depot - May 11, 2009   

Compressor arrived ON TIME as indicated via online tracking. As an apartment dweller I need something that is portable, lightweight, and doesn't make a lot of noise and disturb the neighbors. This Husky compressor does the trick. Only problem encountered was the air hose w/ the accessory kit had an air leak right out of the box. Good news story is my visit to Home Depot the next day yielded a new air hose at no cost thanks to a great HD Associate and Manager at my local HD. Delivery on time, a good product, and a store that stands behind the items it sells gives this a 5-star rating (total package). By the way, the online store states this is only available online but I found the compressor at my local HD, so it's worth checking if you're not comfortable ordering via the internet.

Air Scout
5 Star Review   By CraigT on Home Depot - Mar 12, 2009   

This my first small air compressor and found it very useful in size and quietness of operation. The front storeage compartment is spacey. It is very useful for tire inflation and the air chuck is great for cleaning tools. Lastly the price is perfect for the product and accessaries.

Excellent
5 Star Review   Home Depot   

This compressor is excellent. It works best. I have hardly seen such compressor before. Seems like Home Depot reduced the price. It is silent enough. I use this for Nail shop. As someone below mentioned it is not as loud as other compressors available in market. It is silent enough to use in nail shops.

Does its job
5 Star Review   By PeteZ on Home Depot - Dec 30, 2008   

I have only had this product a short time and haven't used it for anything other than tire inflation, BUT it was well made, easy to use, simple to inflate tires using the provided equipment and inexpensive.

Best in it's class I have tested
4 Star Review   By MPMP on Home Depot - Dec 30, 2008   

I looked at several of these smaller compressors. I wanted something I could use in the office to blow the dust out of PC's, fill tires, etc that rolled on wheels. This was my top choice. The others were a little smaller, but they had leaked air , were very loud, and did not recharge very fast, had lower SCFM (air volume output) etc. Pros: Higher SCFM than others. Not very loud. Fast recharge. Tool Storage! You can't beat this! It has a large storage compartment in the front. Who wants a portable unit with no tool storage? You don't! You loose all accessories! It has an organizer with an assortment of accessories and it can fit lots of other stuff, even the manual! Nice! Cons: Telescoping dolly handle could be stronger, don't lift it by the the dolly handle or you may break it. It's a little "fat" and won't fit behind the front seat of my truck (4 seater). The others were small enough to go there. Overall, this is the best in the 1-2 gallon class for ~$100 that I have seen. I looked at several others by Camp-Housefield, etc. This beats them in all catagories except for size. But the storage is a can't do without. Can not comment on the mechanics, I hope it lasts, I really like it. I rate it 4.75 stars (can only post 4 stars) because nothing deserves a perfect 5.

Air Scout
4 Star Review   By Dolfan on Home Depot - Oct 4, 2008   

I purchased this compressor because I was tired of having to wait forever for my portable 12v compressor to put air in a car tire. The scout is a nice compressor, but the included tire chuck is very hard to use. I spent about a 1/2 hr trying to use the tire chuck on one car tire ( I had more air comming out of the tire than was going in). You have to use so much force when trying to hold the chuck on the valve stem, that your fingers will hurt. Instead of returning the scout, I purchased a husky tire inflator attachment (Model HDA50300AV ) which made putting air in a tire a breeze, it also has a buit-in tire guage. I also purchased a quick disconnect. If you plan on switching from inflating tires and blowing air or using any other attachment, you will want to get a quick disconnect (Model HDA20100AV) . There is a quick disconnect on the side of the unit where the air hose attaches, but it would have made more sense if the quick disconnect were on the other end where the attachments are used. Not sure why Husky decided not to includend a quick disconnect.
