The picture shows its is 1.8 hp and 5.2 CFM @ 90 PSI but the specs show 1.6 hp and 5. CFM @ 90 PSI which one is correct?
Asked by: bdwayneh
It is 1.6 horsepower with a 4.5 gallon hotdog tank. It was $349. Well worth the money.

Can this compressor be ran upright(storage position), as well as laid down or can it only be ran while it's laid down?

Asked by: Brian
It'll function in both positions but is not recommended to function in upright storage position and would risk in damage in low oil lubrication to cylinder.

Can i use this compressor for dental supplies?

Dental unit
Asked by: Rameen
Compressed air quality depends on the inlet air and what the compressor adds to it. Both oil-less and lubricated compressors are used in dentistry. Both require particulate filters to remove any airborne dirt and dust. With a lubricated compressor, the system must also include reliable coalescing filters to ensure patient safety. Most dental compressors include a dryer to remove moisture. The common types are desiccant and membrane. Both types use air to purge the saturated desiccant material or membranes. This reduces the air available chair-side. When selecting, consider how much dried, compressed air is needed for the purge. Keep in mind this DeWalt 4.5 Gal. Portable Electric Air Compressor is not rated for commercial use, though, it is often hard to quantify up front, your experience has probably shown that good quality equipment pays for itself. In the long run, quality compressors last longer, with less frequent repair and lower service costs. Can you afford the downtime?

I'm a retired builder and I've had this compressor for three years. I've replaced the head gasket twice, the entire manifold once and now the regulator just went out. I don't use it outside. It has been in a heated garage since I bought it and still looks brand new. I had an emglo for twenty years of framing and roofing. No comparison in quality compared to price.

First bought a small Dewalt compressor with 2 nail guns for a little over $100 and it lasted 7 years with moderate to light use. Bought this 4.5 portable less than 2 years ago and with little use it quit. Looks almost brand new. Not spending $191.00 to fix it. $500.00 for this compressor?
