Answer: 
I see no reason why not, the motor and compressor are sealed units and don't need user added oil so there is nothing to leak. I didn't see anything that told me not to, but as I have said in another post about this compressor, I have never tried so I can't be sure.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 74 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Quality product Compressor is much quieter than my previous compressor. It takes a while to fill up tank, but does real well in keeping pressure once filled. Regulater tends to drift in adjustment so keep your eye on it. Very easy to use and move around. Met expectations May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product. It is a very important tool, it has helped me a lot. May 3, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TOO LOUD! I've had this compressor for a few weeks now. I really like Dewalt tools. I went with this compressor since it states 78 dBs. Got it home installation was easy, turned it on, and wow it's loud. Way louder than 78 dBs. Even my wife said it was too loud. My friend got the 33 gallon Husky, which is rated at 78 dBs. The husky is way quieter. I hate to do this, but this unit is going back tomorrow. I'll be going with the cheaper Husky unit. If it wasn't for the loudness, I would keep it. March 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Should have been painted lemon yellow instead of gold... Failed after about 20 hours or use. The first problem was a gage started leaking; then, the belt broke. I had to take it about 60 miles for warrant service; it has been approx, a month and not fixed yet. I thought DeWalt stood for quality and did not do my homework. This unit cost about 60% more than others and turned out to be an epic failure. If you look at a Amazon, the rating of 1 & 2 stars for this model is 29% out of the 126 reviews,on DeWalt's page it only gets 3 of 5 stars out of 32 reviews a dismal 60%. March 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this air compressor Great purchase! The air compressor I've been hoping for. Easy to use, but powerful enough to get the job done. April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works As Expected! The air compressor was simple to assemble, and works great! The large 15 gallon tank works well, and the compressor is able to keep up with almost all of my demands--except when I hook up an impact drill and have to spend more than 30 seconds on a rusty nut. But it refills relatively quickly, and I'm able to get back to work quickly. It has also come in very handy to fill those pesky tire punctures. If I leave the chuck on the end of it, my wife and even fill her own tire! January 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A little noisy but good bargin We use this compressor in our business. We had to replace it but not for almost 5 years. Good bargain but the only thing I would warn is the noise, it is rather loud December 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cheaper @ This is $40 cheaper at Lowes, dont buy @ HD, good product, dewalt the best December 13, 2015
