Rated 3 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not for Cold Climates As you read the reviews, you will notice that this does not perform well in the cold. I tried regular compressor oil and it would trip out anytime below 50 degrees. Then I tried Amsoil compressor oil and this helped greatly. Now it will operate down to about 30 degrees. Amsoil is synthetic and cold temps do not effect it as much. If you will use it in a heated environment or a warm climate, you will like it. If you plan to use it in an unheated shop, you won't like it. I can't recommend this product. November 30, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Bummer. Should have read Reviews Wish I had read the reviews. I have had the same problem. The compressor tripped the motor breaker right out of the box, even after the proper break-in. I returned it to the store and now I am on my second compressor. When it works all good, you just cannot keep it running. October 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by No Wonder Why People trust DeWalt I recently bought this double cylinder compressor after my Husky compressor took its last breath on the job in less than a year !!. II chose Dewalt 4.Gal after hearing about it from a friend. It is a great product. and I use it for my fflooring jobs. Geat Product - Great Value. You can never go wrong in selecting DeWalt tools if you are not looking at the price tag alone ! October 26, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Solid So Far, But Needs 20 Amp Circuit Thought I was doing something wrong though I was careful about following set up and break in instructions. Bottom line, she'd clearly start slow and cold and likely as not - would trip the built in overheat switch. Tried re-setting and powering up, but the switch would trip again. If I released all the pressure that was already in the tank, it *might* run correctly and build up to full pressure. Long story, I know. Friend suggested that even though the compressor is rated for 15 amps, I might try a 20 amp circuit. Problem solved. Been performing great since then, but I had to learn a lesson first.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Will not start with full pressure after sitting idle for a while When it works, it is a great compressor. The problem is - it does not always work. I brought it from HD, ran it for 20 min as recommended in the manual with opened valves, then took it out to the backyard for a nailing job. The air tanks were full when I took it out. Setting up the job took me a while (more then 30 min). I started nailing while the pressure was still around 125 psi. All went well until it was time for the compressor to start recharging the air tanks. It gave a whimpering sound and a quite buzzing sound and then blew the thermal fuse on the compressor. I waited for about 20 sec, pushed the fuse and tried to start it again. Same story. Then I decided to empty the tanks. Dropped tho pressure to almost 0 and then started the compressor. It worked. Until another idle period. I had to drop the pressure again to 0 and only then it would start. This happened EVERY time when the time between air tank recharges was longer than about 30 min. So if you shoot a lot of nails and the compressor kicks in every 5-10 min, all is well. If the job requires slow pace and the compressor has to be idle for more than 30 min, it will blow the fuse. What a disappointment. I have other DeWalt tools and never had any problems with them. Will try a different brand. March 1, 2014
