Husky 4.6 Gal. Portable Electric Air Compressor (Rebranded CAT-4610A Ultra Quiet)
$99 CLEARANCE @ Home depot

As with HD Clearance - YMMV. Two local New England stores had about a dozen each... looks like online these are now - PRODUCT NOT SOLD IN STORES. I think HD is starting to do this more often to avoid buy-online pick-up instore purchases, even though stores have plenty of inventory on-hand.

You will need more CFMs for most garage tools such as grinders, cuttters and sanders.. Google can give you minimums but you probably shouldn't be looking at anything less than 6-10 CFM compressors

6-10 basically means no 110V powered compressors. The highest CFM @ 90 psi I've ever seen out of any 110V compressor is 6 CFM. Who knows if that's a totally legit number. Prior to that the best I saw was around 5.5 for the larger belt driven, separate pump+motor models.

Anyway, how much you need is a bit like how fast does your computer need to be. If you are patient you can do a lot with a lesser compressor. I frequently run a 500 ft-lb impact wrench with a 4 gallon, 3.9 CFM compressor. However, I am running bursts (typically pulling lung nuts or other large bolts where most of the power is needed to break things free). Thus the tank is really buffering what the pump can't keep up with.

That said, the OP's compressor's output is on the very low side for just about any tool. At 4 gallons an air/blow gun will use the tank very quickly. But it will be very good for inflating tires. It should take about 2 minutes to fill up from 0 pressure. It will also be quiet which is really nice.

In line picking one up in Laguna hills, ca. Also picking up a $59 Ridgid impact driver kit and a $129 Ridgid saw and drill combo kit (both sets Gen5x of course)

I had already saw the compressor deal before seeing the post but nice tip OP! Repped!

Saw this today in store for $99. Was tempting until I saw it was only 120 psi. 1 HP motor might be quieter, but this is overall pretty weak.

You can buy a compressor with larger tank capacity, better CFM, and/or higher Max PSI for this price. The main selling points for this compressor are the aluminum tanks and quieter motor. If you don't care about the noise level and only need a compressor once in a while to use an impact or nail gun an oiled compressor with larger tank can be had for slightly cheaper on sale. I picked up the 8 gallon Husky oiled compressor on sale for $75 a couple months ago.

I was shopping for an air compressor for my basement and I went with a CAT. The CAT version runs at 60dB but the Husky one runs at 68dB, nearly twice the noise.

HD seems to have cut the cord between online and instore availability for this item. This seems to happen when the item is being clearanced out everywhere. My guess is this item is $99 everywhere, but I don't know for sure.

I believe the only way to know if this is in-stock and the cost is to call the store and ask for availability and cost of 1001-191-798.

Yes, HD clearance is local and regional, so we won't see this price in most of the country for months.

Nice find, but it's truly a weak pos earmarked with typical Husky shoddy quality. If you need real yet portable compressor look no further than the 50% duty cycle MAC2400 or 100% duty cycle FC2002 or P1IU-A9. Each delivers 4.2@90 and a friggin heirloom.
