Hi guys,

I just purchased a Husky portable air compressor and new to this. Need some help from pros on safety and setting ups. Please see the attached pictures.

I purchased a moisture trap from home depot and installed it to prevent water get into air hose. Am I doing it right? Another question regarding safety is that each time after I finish the job and want to load the compressor to my car. Do I need to depressurize the tank first?

This compressor comes with an air filter. Can anyone tell me how often do I need to change the filter? I can't find any information on the manual.

Here comes the part really confused me. There is a label on the tank saying "Do not use to lift compressor" I don't understand do not use what to lift it.

Hi - Welcome to the forum:smile:
Water filter is fine, kind of an optional thing. Shouldn't be an issue if you purge the tank after every use.

Can't help you with the air filter, just check it periodically if you are using it in dusty/dirty conditions. Maybe blow it out occasionally.

For lifting, I think they are talking about using the handle to lift the whole compressor. That looks like an oil filled compressor and upending it might spill the crankcase. I'm not positive about that though.
Hi, jschaben.
Thank you for all the great information. Since it
s oil lubricated, every time when I try to lift the compressor, I should keep it upright?
