I bought a small 1hp 60db 35lbs CAT compressor to use on small jobs. A couple days after the 1 year warranty was up it started making a metallic ringing noise during the last half of the fill cycle. Could be a head gasket or valve issue. I figured I would just run it into the ground and then replace it with something different after it died. 5 years later it's still running, although louder than 60db with the ringing noise. In addition to the annoying noise, the drain plug is in a very inconvenient location and hard to use.

I would not buy another CAT compressor. I'll be looking forward to your review of the Husky.
