Since this item is an online order only, as a retired military serviceman can I receive the 10% discount as offered in Home Depot stores?

Asked by: Gary
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!

What is the decibel rating ??

What is the decibel rating ??
Asked by: Steve
Hi. The manufacturer states it is 78 decibels. Depending on the construction and size of the units location, it could be lower or higher. I have mine in an attached, insulated, drywall 2 car garage against a wall with 12" clearance from the wall. I would say my unit is a little quieter at about 70 decibels. If you have cement block construction it could be louder because the sound will echo off the walls.

Does this compressor come with everything shown in the picture, i.e. both gauges, regulator and coupling as shown?
Asked by: Rick
This compressor comes with everything in the picture. The only thing you will need to provide is the hose and connector. You will also need to fill it with oil when it comes. There is a little window that shows the oil level. It's difficult to see the oil level. I overfilled mine at first and had to remove some. I love this compressor. I purchased and installed a 3-way quick connector on mine. I run one hose directly from the compressor. That one usually has a blow gun attached. The second connector is used for a hose to my ceiling hose reel. The third connector is available to run other tools if I choose.

Customer Reviews

30 Gal. Portable Vertical Electric Air Compressor is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

I'm pretty happy with this compressor. it is replacing my sears direct drive of similar design. main reason is noise. it is in my garage and I read that the dewalt type is fairly quiet. I checked it out. when I received it I compared the 2 with my db meter. The sears was 100 db (really freaking loud), the dewalt was 78. Both from a few feet away. a huge difference. when I would use the old one I put on hearing protectors it was so loud. I believe the sears put out more air so its a little bit of a trade off. BUT--the dewalt goes to 150# the sears 125. It comes on around 110 and cuts off at 155. then cools off to about 150. I did not like the drain so I changed to an elbow and ball valve and extension pipe all 1/4". It did not look like there was enough room but it fit. that is something they could change, is give you a little more room under it. It does not leak down so that is another plus. I use my compressor quite often, for many cars, painting small items, a blast cabinet, blow out the garage, etc. I really don't see any major downsides. It is inline with other compressors of this size and type. I do wish it put out a little more air but that would mean going to 220v which I don't have in my garage.

I am VERY satisfired with my purchase. They said it would not be quieter but it is much quieter and you can tell the Dewalt brand is much more quality than the previous husky I had. I would definelty recommend this. I have had it for about a month now. The only thing that I don't like is the added weight. It is much heavier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT VALUE FOR PRICE All that I expected and more from DEWALT. From the reviews that I have read prior to my purchase I have only one negative thing that I agree with, and that is the drain at the bottom of the tank is a drawback and should be addressed by the manufacturer. I did what someone else had done and elbowed it out to the edge for ease of drainage. I would think that an engineer would have had the cense to either do what I have done, or raised the tank a couple of inches to allow for the tank to be drained properly. It's a fix that the consumer shouldn't have to do if the design teem would have asked for input of the end user. Overall a good product save this short coming (pun intended). PS: NO LEAKES, AIR or OIL. Break in Procedure went as expected, slight smell of new rubber as expected, and modification to the drain with street elbow, coupling, and 6" of pipe comes very close to the ground, but way better than having to tilt the entire compressor and lean it against something at the handles while blocking the wheels so they don't roll just to open and close the drain. Which brings me to the final point of Weight and that is only an issue with the drain issue.

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.
