Husky 10 Gallon Portable Air Compressor, L210VWD

If you are the type of person who loves do-it-yourself (DIY) tasks, Husky has the right air compressor for you. Husky 10 Gallon Air Compressor L210VWD is the excellent machine to use for DIY home, garage, or industrial shop tasks such as simple bolting/wrenching, brad nailing, automotive tasks, nailing, stapling, and many more.

How does it do all these tasks? Well, it has an induction motor running at 1.5 HP which provides strong power for high-quality performance. Air delivery is 4.5 SCFM at 40 psi and 3.8 SCFM at 90 psi. Its maximum pressure is 135 psi. The power and level of air pressure definitely meet the minimum requirements of light-duty tasks mentioned above. The air flow is more than enough to power air ratchets and other similar tools.

Husky 10 gallon air compressor has an oil-lubricated direct drive pump which ensures smooth pump operations. Because it is well-lubricated, you can expect a long-lasting performance. For the user’s convenience, the compressor has an oil sight glass that provides an accurate view of the oil level. There is no need for a dip stick that may not be too reliable. Also, the package comes with the required oil so no need to purchase for the first use. If you will need to change the oil, the synthetic blend is recommended.

The tank has a total capacity of 10 gallons. It fills up pretty quickly so inflation of tires would not be very time-consuming. It is made of steel and is certified by ASME so your safety is guaranteed. To lessen the vibration when it is running, it has 2 rubber feet attached to the tank.

Despite the huge capacity of its tank, it is still very portable. It weighs 78 lbs. With its 7-inch wheels, you can transport it along all types of surfaces. The wheels are not pre-attached but you can easily mount them in a few minutes. In terms of storage, you can save space because the tank is vertically oriented. It is very compact and stands at a height of only 3 feet. However, it is not as slim as the other models. Because of its oil-lubricated pump, it is not as loud as the other models.

    I just bought a new Husky 10 gal L210VWD unit. The manual does not specify if a break in is required for this unit prior to use. Let me know if a break in and oil change is required for this small unit. can you specify the require procedure if it is recommended. thanks Jan

    Just picked this one up today on pg 17 under lubrication it says to change oil after the first 10 hrs of use (for break in) then every 100 hrs after.
