Husky Framing Tools
"The ultimate Husky duo has hit center stage."
I got the opportunity to test out this Dynamic Duo. Husky has built some pretty great products and today Im sharing my experience with the Husky Silent Air Compressor and the Husky Framing Nailer. I have two other compressors in my shop and I was pleasanlty surprised with the performance of Husky's product. Let's get to it!

This Husky silent air compressor is a lot quieter during operation than my other two air compressors. This is probably one of my favorite features because I always feel self-conscious when using my air compressor, especially in the mornings. I know my neighbors probably don't mind. But it's nice to not have a loud roaring sound in the air for long periods of time. The decrease in noise was well welcomed.
The oil free pump requires less maintenance and the compressor features an integrated metal control panel for easy operation.
The airflow is 3.0 SCFM at 90 psi and 4.0 SCFM at 40 psi and the motor is 1.3 HP 4-pole induction motor allowing 2 times longer life.
I really like the wheels and back foot pedal for ease of movement. It makes transporting a whole lot easier and I like that the back handle is adjustable.
The compressor features 2 quick couplers that allows two tools to work simultaneously. Normally on my other air compressors, if I am using two tools I have to take the time to change out each tool as I'm using them but its nice to have the option to hook two tools up at a time.
This compressor is perfect for inflation, finish nailing and framing and roofing. Speaking of framing, lets get into this awesome Husky Framing Nailer. Being that this compressor is perfect for framing, it would only be right to couple it with Husk's Framing Nailer.
This Husky Framing Nailer is a beast of a tool. It features an easy load magazine from the rear and can easily switch between sequential and contact nailing.
It's ideal for sheathing, framing, remodeling or deck projects. This nailer has a bit of weight but its die-cast magnesium body is constructed for lightweight usability.
EASY LOAD MAGAZINE
The framing nailer has a rear loading magazine that allows you to slide nails into the magazine.
ANTI-DRY FIRE SYSTEM
This anti-dry fire system helps protect the tool and the operator. It prevents you from shooting blanks when the the nail quality is low.
To connect the framing nailer to the Husky Silent Air Compressor, I used the 50ft. Husky Air Hose, it features very good weather flexibility and the smooth finish does not mar surfaces. The air hose is lightweight for less fatigue and includes bend restrictors for increased hose life.
These two dynamic tools make quite the DUO. I will surely be using this air compressor often in the future.
