What do Husky air compressors and Home Depot stores have in common?
The answer is that Husky air compressors are the house brand name for Home Depot’s own air compressor line.
That isn’t to say that you cannot buy other brands of air compressors at Home Depot. But if it’s a Husky air compressor you are looking at, it’s built by a compressor manufacturer, or many compressor manufacturer’s, and they brand the compressor with the Husky name and logo.
During 2015 Home Depot was offering about 15 different models of Husky air compressors, from smaller portable units up to a 7.5 HP x 80 gallon two stage air compressor.
Of course, the Home Depot Husky brand extends into many hardware related products, like air and hand tools, for example. These are not manufactured by Home Depot either, but are commercially produced and branded Husky.
Who Makes Husky Air Compressors?
We spent quite a bit of time researching this issue. Some on line sources point to Campbell Hausfeld as the manufacturer of Husky air compressors. Other sources point to the Chinese company Ningbo Huasheng Air Compressors Co. There is likely truth in both claims, as it seems that some Campbell Hausfeld air compressors (and for that matter, many other well known air compressor brands) are made by Chinese manufacturers.
The issue with who makes the Husky brand of air compressors is one of reputation (quality wise) and the source for spare parts. After all, it’s only a matter of time before your Husky air compressor (or any air compressor for that matter) fails. When it does, who fixes it and where do you get parts?
The logical first source is the Home Depot store where you bought the compressor. Ask them if they have a preferred repair shop if they fix air compressors under warranty, rather than just trashing them. That repair depot is a good source for parts, as many of the parts are interchangeable from other brands, since so many different brands are made by the same company or companies.
The Home Depot website will eventually get you to a phone number you can call. Good luck with that.
Or, you can post your Husky compressor question or parts needs here. Make sure you include your model number and any other details about the condition of your compressor to allow others to help you.
If you have a particular area on the compressor, make sure you add a photo of the compressor, and then a closeup or two about where the problem is. This will sure help.
Thanks. We look forward to providing assistance, both us and the visitors to this site.
