This Husky HV7518075 model also has a pump that was intricately structured to provide the best service that you could ask for. It has hardened disc valves and an oversized taper roller bearings. The cast iron flywheel is fully balanced. Because it is expected to perform heavy-duty tasks, the metal belt guard and splash-type lubrication will be responsible in cooling the pump faster (as much as 60 degrees Fahrenheit over other standard belt guards) than other units. It can deliver 22.1 CFM of air at 100 psi and 21.2 CFM at 175 psi. The maximum pressure is at 175 psi.

The pump is oil-lubricated so make sure to change the compressor oil as necessary. Since this unit will be used for both light and heavy-duty tasks, you should always monitor the oil level to make sure that it does not leak.
The tank has a huge total capacity of 80 gallons. This reservoir allows for a longer run time of the devices that it will operate. It is made of cast-iron material which guarantees a long working life. The tank is oriented vertically. Although not so slim, it can still be squeezed into your garage because it is not too tall nor too bulky.
