Works great! It's nice and light and handles great.

I bought the compressor to run a narrow crown stapler that I already had. My project is on a ranch and what I am working on has to be powered by a gas generator. My 2000W generator ran this compressor with no problem, the big surprise is what this brad nailer was capable of doing with 2" brad nails,...

Compressor / brad nailer combo arrived in good condition and functioned perfectly out of the box. Have not had the opportunity to use much yet, but so far, it's great. Time will tell how it holds up, but the out of box quality and performance is excellent, and I'd highly recommend. Primary driver wa...

I looked at compressors in the store and chose this one. The price for just the compressor in the store was the same as ordering this compressor, hose, and brad nailer. Shipping was free and my purchase came quickly. I am very pleased quality is good and ordering online the price was great. The comp...

Should have bought this 20 years ago. This product worked flawlessly putting down shoe molding. Saved me 2 hours. Not one misfire or bent nail. Quality product all around.

Shipped to my door as a combo compressor and nice PC 2 inch brad nail gun and air hose for about forty bucks more than the compressor cost alone at my local hardware store here on the Big Island. In use daily as we build our house, haven't had a problem with performance. Compressor handles two lines...

Pros: High Tank Pressure, Portable, Initial Purchase Price Cons: Marginal Pressure Switch, Universal Brush Motor, Loud, Light Duty Piston, Drawn Cylinder Best Uses: Home Use, Limited Lightweight Use Describe Yourself: Professional Bottom Line: Recommended with restrictions called out below I borrow...

As expected. I purchased to general use. May try air tools in the future.

This compressor is light and easy to carry places that you can't take or reach a larger compressor with. We use it on our rental properties to move around for trim work and light projects. Cheaper than buying a bulky expensive battery operated tool when we already had all the air tools. It is loud b...

I needed a compressor that was big enough for a frame nailer, but light enough to haul around for trim work. This fit the bill nicely. I have seen many of the framers on my jobites (homebuilder) using them to nail all day (16d's) with no problems. Sheer panel nailers need a little more compressor, b...

This air compressor is a great fit for a garage handyman who will be using it primarily with nail guns or small impact tools. This model has no trouble keeping up with a nailer or short bursts of use with an impact wrench (ie loosening lug nuts). However, it does run into trouble with extended use o...

Packaging & Assembly: Item came reasonably packaged with no damage. Open the box & remove a horizontal cardboard spacer on the top. Package contents: Fully assembled compressor & Instruction booklet. No extra cardboard or packaging inside other than the exterior box itself. First Impressions/Featur...

I had been meaning to get a smaller compressor to use with my nailers for some time now, to get away from lugging around my large wheeled one, and this DeWalt model fit the bill nicely. This unit is light and compact, making it well-suited for work up on the roof, and provides ample CFM's to run my...

This compressor comes ready to go. Just unpack from the box and plug it in. It is lightweight and can be easily moved from room to room. I did some nailing of baseboard and it worked quite well. It fills quickly and for small jobs I had no problem keeping it full and not loosing any pressure. Its is...

I needed a new air compressor and I read this one was pretty good. Well it is! It's not super quiet but a whole lot quieter than most.

PRODUCT WAS EASY TO USE RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX AND ALL NEEDED INFORMATION WAS INCLUDED.

Bought this to do some painting with a spray gun. compressor worked like a charm. love all the features like dual ports so you can work two Airtools at once. not too noisy and very easy to maintain. I would recommend this to a DIYer.

I had the Porter Cable version of this compressor for 10 years before it finally crapped out on me. 2 things make the Dewalt version WELL worth the few extra bucks. 1) It is NOTICEABLY quieter. I'm not saying you're not going to hear it anymore, but it is a drastic improvement over the Porter Cable...

Runs quiet. I have only used it with a framing nail gun, but it works well. It is not heavy and is easy to transport. It also maintains 165 psi which is higher than most portable compressors.

compressor operated excellent with my nailers but did not hold enough air for pnematic tools

Questions & Answers

As pressure drops, at what pressure does the compressor kick in?

Per the owners manual: Kick in- 120 PSI Kick off- 150 PSI *Mine is lower than that as the pressure switch is older and failing. It does kick on and off, just lower pressure..

75 psi

What size frighten

What's "frighten"?

Not sure what your asking?

The product dimension is 17 in. D x 20.38 in. H x 17 in. W.

Easily carried from job to job

Explain what is meant by Frighten.

It a trple stak yo

Anything over 30" is frighten me!

Yes and no.

Can I use it to blow out the lines of an inground pool?

Don't know--Give it a try,nothing to lose.

This compressor barely supports a framing nailer. It’s great for finish nailers. I don’t think it’s going to blow out your pool,lines.

I doubt it.

There are too many variables in your question to answer adequately as it depends on the quantity, sizes, and lengths of the lines. The air compressor asked about has a very small tank, and when blowing out my sprinkler lines it takes four to five hours.

Yes, but keep the pressure low.

Yes, as long as the framing nailer psi specifications do not exceed 165 PSI.

Absolutely. I've used several different nailers and they all work fine
