Answer: 
I have had this problem in the past. I am on VA disability so I have to make every penny count. You can return the item to customer service and then re-purchase it with your veteran's discount. It's kind of a pain but I'm polite about it and Home Depot has never let me down!

I am also retired military. I purchased a $1,000 Rigid generator online. Before I hit the submit purchase button, I called the 1-800 number and the very nice lady gave me the 10% discount. That was a couple of years ago.

Answer: 
Yes it can. Wiring instructions for 240v do come on the unit but not in the instruction manual. If you are familiar with wiring then you should not have a problem. Make sure your fuse box is set up for 240v and the outlet you use is the appropriate amps.

Answer: 
The duty cycle will depend on how much air you use. My automotive tools do not require very much air to run and they are not continuously running. A spray gun will need more air and that will cause the compressor to cycle more often. It is recommended that you do some research and find out how much air is required for your tool and application and then determine what size compressor will be adequate for Read More
The duty cycle will depend on how much air you use. My automotive tools do not require very much air to run and they are not continuously running. A spray gun will need more air and that will cause the compressor to cycle more often. It is recommended that you do some research and find out how much air is required for your tool and application and then determine what size compressor will be adequate for your needs. Pay attention to the CFM on the unit you wish to purchase. The more CFM you have may reduce the duty cycle depending on the tools requirements and use. 5.7 at 90 psi is enough for my tools needs.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 43 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product is efficient, gets the job done, and is quiet. I have had it for a few weeks and am satisfied with it. It does not take up too much space in the garage which is also nice. It meets my expectations thoroughly. October 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Compressor When I received my compressor the cardboard box it was shipped in was severely damaged on one side but after inspection of the compressor I found no damage. I would recommend additional interior packaging. I broke in the compressor as the instructions outlined, I found the compressor to be very quite much more so than my old direct drive compressor. It is well made and fairly easy to move around. Reaching the drain at the bottom of the compressor is a might mare. I had to get on my hands and knees just to reach under the compressor but found that there is insufficient clearance between the floor and the bottom of the unit to fit your hand under and open the drain. I had to tilt the compressor to reach under and was unable to use my fingers to open the valve. I contacted the service rep at DeWalt via e-mail, they replied very quick and were very helpful but they informed me that there was no after factory fix to this issue. Other than that I am very satisfied with the compressor and would recommend its purchase. September 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Compressor performance. I have had the compressor a month now and have not had any problems. It is not noisy in my garage. Maybe around 70 decibels. It runs smooth and keeps up with all my automotive tools. It is a perfect fit for me and the automotive repair work that I do out of my garage. It seems to be well made. The compressor does not take long to charge the tank and does not constantly run. Like most compressors the drain valve is at the bottom of the tank but I do not have a problem reaching it like some other owners who seem too. Many homes have shared 15 amp circuits and on start up it will draw slightly more amps and trip the breaker. So I recommend a dedicated 20 amp circuit which I installed for my unit. It has not tripped the breaker once on the 20 amp circuit. I did a leak test and it has maintained the same tank pressure for 1 week and would probably continue to do so. I am very pleased with the quality and construction. October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good purchase The compressor arrived by truck. The driver stored it where I asked him to. The package contained the compressor and two owners manuals. I followed the break-in procedure then used the machine right away. The tank filled quickly and was ready to go. This is a well constructed and well painted machine. It is perfect for a homeowner who doesn't need the larger 240 V models. I would only suggest that a shutoff valve be placed between the tank and the hose, along with the included pressure regulator. Great machine so far! September 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product The compressor runs quiet and gets the job done. It as delivered in timely manner also. October 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 30 Gal Dewalt Compressor Performs as expected and quiet. Nice compressor. Haven't owned it long enough to evaluate longevity. October 11, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice compressor overall; shipping carton inadequate Good overall performance; draws less current than my old Sanborn 2 HP compressor, which often popped the 15amp breaker. Fairly quiet operation--for a compressor. Would have preferred semi-pneumatic tires instead of the inflatable ones, although I don't plan on moving it much. Drain valve poorly placed under the tank; very difficult to reach and open (screw-type) unless the compressor is tipped diagonally. (Should have an elbow and pipe extension.) The shipping carton really needs to be reinforced and padded better, since that's where the delicate parts are. Compressor arrived with one gauge smashed and the compressor transfer tube (air outlet pipe) was bent and leaking air. I straightened and tightened the tube and have temporarily installed a gauge from my old (donor) compressor. Hoping this compressor lasts as long as my old one (30+ years). However, the tank is certified for only ten years use; cost of replacing it unknown. September 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great compressor -- poor shipping speed. Product was very good. Shipping company was slow and not that customer friendly. September 20, 2016
