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.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 78 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Works well, but beware I have owned this compressor for a few years, and use it very little. I went out to my shop to use it, only to discover the pressure valve handle had self destructed, apparently throwing its innards around the shop. You can't just replace the valve, you have to replace the whole assembly. The assembly costs about 25% of the cost of the entire compressor. It's a good design, and a great asset for the garage, but I am concerned about Dewalt's decision to have their products built in China. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Compressor I purchased this pump back in 2010. The new models gauges are setup a little different from mine but same HP and capacity. This is a great pump. I use it to change wheels and work on cars and put air in the kids bikes etc. I've had it for 5 plus years with no mechanical problems. I will say after about 3 yrs the lever at the bottom which release the air in the tank started to leak. It didn't bother me only thing is that the compressor would kick on more frequently. for the price its definitely worth it. August 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible experience with this compressor Very unhappy with this compressor. The automatic shut off at 200psi didn't work on my unit, the line pressure regulator kept creeping up as much as 8psi after it was set and locked while I was using an air tool, and the compressor leaked about 5psi every few hours when not in use. Also it's very loud compared to other compressors. I returned this unit. I had purchased it because it was a small, compact design but it's a total disaster. The only good thing I can say is that it had decent power for its size but it was riddled with problems. Save yourself some time and money and buy a Husky. July 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Compressor Proper power and ease of use. Dealt has always been an excellent product August 13, 2016
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 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 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 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
