Husky 120 Volt Inflator, HY120 – Reviews, Specifications and More

Have you ever heard of an inflator that has a pressure gauge which glows in the dark? Yes, this is one of the features that makes Husky 120 Volt inflator unique.

The analogue pressure gauge was designed to allow users to see the reading even in the dark. When you have a flat tire on the middle of a dark street, you can still use the machine to inflate your tire because of this glow-in-the-dark feature as long you have an outlet.

Aside from vehicle tires, the inflator can also be used for bicycle tires, air mattresses, and sports equipment. In fact, the tool already comes with a mattress nozzle, sports needle, and Presta valve adapter for your convenience. You get all these in a single package worth $29.98 in Home Depot. Other small things that can be inflated by this machine include pool toys, garden or lawn tires, golf cart tires, and many more.

Because it is a 120-Volt inflator, it is equipped with a fast and powerful direct-drive motor. Just plug it into a standard 120-Volt outlet and you are good to go. It runs quietly which is beneficial for consumers who prefer to work indoors. The maximum pressure of Husky 120 Volt inflator is 130 PSI. This is not strong enough for other heavier tasks but is very much appropriate for light and simple tasks such as the aforementioned. It can inflate even a tire of a small truck but it would take some time. However, for smaller objects such as basketball and football, the pumps are excellent.

The inflator is very portable so you can carry it with you easily. It even has a handle which adds to its portability. With an assembled height of only 40 inches, you can put it in your car compartment or squeeze it to your workbench with all other equipment. It is a lot more compact than other models.

The length of the power cord is around 24 inches which is enough to keep you at a distance from the outlet to the object that you will inflate. The length of the hose is 28 inches which is long enough for garage or indoor use. The hose is made of rubber so you need to be very careful as it is relatively prone to leaks. Make sure that you check this part and have it replaced as necessary. Also, the connection between the air hose and compressor must be carefully handled because it can be easily damaged.

 The machine is very easy to use with on/off switch that makes it quick to control. If you want a sturdy, lightweight, and powerful inflator for domestic purpose, Husky 120 Volt inflator is perfect for you.

    Hi, I bought the 120v inflator last year. Now the air hose is broken 2 places where it curved and clipped to the body. Where can I get the replacement hose? Should I take it back to Home Depot and exchange for a new one?

    Air hose broken where it comes out of the compressor. Any place I can get a replacement hose? It’s less than a year old.

    Can I get a replacement hose for my compressor? Husky 120 volt inflator. If so where can I purchase one?

    This just happened to me. The black metal is very thin, just peal it off with a pliers. Pull the remaining piece of rubber off. Make a new clean cut what is left and slide it back on. Then put a hose clamp on and tighten it up.

    Done, at most it will take 10 minutes.

    My hose broke where it comes out of the compressor too. I have not handled this equipment irresponsibly. Husky should have a replacement for such shoddy parts.

    O purchased the Husky HY120 120-Volt Inflator a year ago and used it two times. When I went to inflate my boat trailer tires today, I noticed that the Husky hose was leaking air from the fitting that mounts it to the cyclinder. I always keep the hose stowed in the factory position when being stored. That is what caused the hose to crack right at the point the hose turns downward. It is a hard turn which has no caused the hose to be usless. I have not been able to find a replacement hose due to the small size of the fitting. Can someone tell me where I can get one.

    My hose broke too where it comes out of the compressor. I have not abused it in any way. Husky should have a replacement available.

    Mine broke too. I pulled off the metal clip holding the hose on. I went to Home Depot and bought a $0.83 compression clamp (the one you tighten with a screw driver) found in the plumbing isle. I cut the hose off evenly and put on the compression clamp then pushed the hose back onto the nozzle then tightened the compression clamp. It worked!!!
