Just curious, what is this for? The guy on the promo picture is using it for changing wheels on a regular car which a regular no heavy duty impact wrench. Certainly this pressure or capacity is not necessary for that.

You'd use it for something that requires more continuous air flow like a sander or sandblaster or something. You're right that it's overkill for an impact wrench.

Just for an impact in a home environment, this is a little overkill. Most common impacts like the IR231 or even the Aircat 1150 are about 4.2CFM under load.

BUT, having said that, if you use a die grinder (I often use them to take rust off of surfaces along with a wire brush), those are typically upwards of 20CFM.

The 175PSI is nice, that it will take a while before it drops to an unusable level even if using devices like a die grinder, so you'll be able to use it a little longer before waiting for it to cycle.

HOWEVER, the biggest mistake most people make when using air compressors, are the fittings. For tools like impacts and die grinder to shine, people need to stop using the typical "M" fittings that come standard with cheap hoses and fittings. Those are a HUGE bottlneck. Need to upgrade to high airflow ones fittings. I had my old IR231 and thought it was due for a rebuild, In the meantime I picked up an Aircat 1150, but found it was not as impressive as I hoped. Then I finally got around to replacing my fittings (on the compressor, on my tools and redid my hoses too), and wow.. Even my IR231 felt like it got a new life. I ended up going with "V" type fittings, since the male "M" fittings are backward compatible and still work in "V" style female couplings. That way I can keep my "M" style male fittings for all my tools that don't need any high volume (air Guns, tire inflators, some paint guns, etc..). High Volume fittings and coupling make a huge difference with these tools.

For HD Canada, I guess this is the closest one: https://www.homedepot.ca/product/husky- ... 1000857791
The C304H.C (one posted here) will probably be eventually replacing this model (similar specs except higher CFM).

@ $399 it is a pretty nice price if you need a compressor for most home DIY stuff and can find it. Don't need one, and probably not available at my useless local HD, but upvoted for a great find and sharing. Thnx

absolute killer deal, looks to be a rebranded industrial air, its interesting that its 175psi, thats quite high. I have the very similar industrial air 155psi 30 gal and its been beyond amazing. at the $400 price point its honestly a no-brainer.

I see 1001651001. Model number C304H. Home Depot site and stocktrack don't show anything for it. Might be store specific.

Excavating? You mean line purging? Yes, it can. However it would be complete overkill.

I have an earlier version of this compressor and it has plenty of capacity for blowing out sprinkler lines. It paid for itself after the 3rd season. Just be sure to turn the PSI down, or you *could* damage valves in your system...

this is a great option to blow out the pipes in a large home or cottage. i use a slightly smaller 4.5scfm compressor at 45-55psi to do my whole home and water heater before i go down south for the winter

I checked another nearby homedepot store, and it's priced at 999, so maybe quite some stores have it but not on sale and not on the website

Only 2 HP? My 5 HP, 25 ga, 125 PSI can barely keep up with my die grinder, was hoping for something with more pressure for a 498K. I'd hate to lug this thing home only to find it takes forever to reach and maintain the advertised pressure.
