Questions & Answers


Is this compressor adequate for blowing out a lawn irrigation system

Asked by Gary October 17, 2020

Yes, but if there is dry dirt or debris in the lines, you might want to run some water in first to loosen everything up.

What is the Horse power and how many amps does it pull ?

Asked by Bruce August 15, 2020

Hello Bruce, Horsepower is 1.1HP and the it has a 12 amp draw. This provides the motor a easy way to start and reduces the breaker being tripped.

I use this for light framing and all the sudden it’s just stops and I have to wait like five minutes and it will start

Asked by Bello August 7, 2020

You need to drain the water from the drain plug more often than you are and let the gunk blow out of it. I recommend doing that where you are not worried about getting a brown gunk on things. Make sure the compressor is full of air before turning the value.

Can I use this compressor for shingles?

Asked by Gerry June 8, 2020

I bought this compressor about 15 months ago and have it for a number of things including using a high pressure staple gun and a framing gun. I typically drive 3.5" nails and all it requires is a 120psi. The ratings on this compressor say that it is good for 200psi but rarely have I seen exceed 150psi. I don't think using it for shingle nails will tax it too hard. However, I have never used both output ports at the same time and that would be a question for further investigation.

What is the size of the intake air line?

Asked by castin1 February 24, 2020

no, don't buy it! terrible, Don't even get up over 150 PSI, it rate for 225 PSI but it won't pass 150! I will return it!

How much does it weigh and how many decibels does it put out?

Asked by NutsandBolts August 3, 2019

The compressor weighs 36 lbs and puts out 71.5 decibels. By the way, this information is available on the Home Depot web site under the product specifications for the product.

Is this compressor capable of airing up 17.5" RV tires requiring 115 psi?

Asked by Tenbrooks February 28, 2019

This compressor has a low capacity tank and low cfm rating, it is best for low draw work like nailing trim not for tire inflation

Can it keep up with a hardwood floor staple gun

Asked by Bo January 11, 2019

Yes. I’ve used it to put down about 2400 sqft of 5/8” bamboo with the floor stapler. Worked like a champ.

Will this be good for spraying will it be able to keep up

Asked by Bedlinnet August 14, 2018

As others have noted, certainly not for large jobs, and not as a regular function. If you just want to spray some cabinets or radiators every now and then it is totally fine.

What is the start up wattage requirement for this compressor?

Asked by hhs69er June 25, 2018

The rule of thumb when sizing breakers is 1.25 * FLA where FLA is the "full load amperage" of the motor. This compressor advertises a 12 amp motor, so you shouldn't have a problem running this on a 15 amp breaker. Speaking from experience, mine has never tripped a 15 amp breaker on startup. If you're on the fence about buying this, I say go for it. It's been an outstanding compressor that stands up to my abuse. It's easy to transport and is quiet, which is a huge plus when you're working in small areas, like remodeling bathrooms, etc.

Soo quiet!!!
Customer review from logo
I do a TON of interior remodeling and have always used a pancake-style compressor for most of the air tools. Not anymore. Currently we are working on finishing a basement and this thing is so quiet that we can actually talk over it while it’s running in a concrete basement!! It’s packed with cool features (2 outlets, clearly visible gauges, dust proof power switch, full roll cage and you can set it upright or horizontal), it’s crazy light and it fills up quick. We ran two framing guns on it without an issue! Everyone in the crew wants to buy these now! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

great compressor for trim work
Customer review from logo
I am a professional trim carpenter. I've been using this compressor full time now for about two weeks. I like the design that allows the compressor to stand up or lay flat… it really helps as far as space savings goes when packing all my tools in my truck. the compressor isn't too heavy either, so it's not annoying having to get it out and carry it into different jobs. the compressor has two outlets for air hoses, one of which I put a splitter on. the compressor easily handled 3 guys working all day off of it for a week. it didn't run too often, and when it did, it was much quieter than 95% of the compressors out there. the air hose couplings it has are the nice ones that lock on to the air hose when you just push it in. it also has a well positioned carrying handle, easy to adjust pressure knob, and easy to read pressure gauges. overall, a very well built air compressor.

I was looking for a small compressor capable of putting out more pressure than a standard pancake compressor. Also, since I often use a compressor in my garage and house, I wanted one that wasn't obnoxiously loud. The compressors I replaced with this unit included a standard pancake compressor that malfunctioned after minimal use and a large 30 gallon garage compressor that I no longer need the high volume of air it produced. Both of those compressors were uncomfortably noisy requiring hearing protection and a location no where near where I was working to be comfortable. This DeWalt is light making it easy to move around, yet supplies all the air I need for home projects. The reduced noise level is appreciated every time I use it. Please note that there are quieter compressors on the market, but this one delivers higher pressure than most of those ultra quiet models. Overall the compressor seems well built with the features I was looking for. I can't speak for long term reliability yet as the unit is new but I did purchase an extended warrantee just in case. The compressor fits well within Dewalt's mobile storage chest (see images - also purchased at Home Depot) along with hoses, heavy duty extension cord, accessories and crown stapler gun. At this point I am very satisfied.

Faulty valve plate assembly
Customer review from logo
Compressor is great until the faulty valve plate fails prematurely. When it fails, you will not be able to build the required amount of pressure for use outside of filling balls. I have had the compressor for 2 years with very minimal use, less than 2 hours total. Will not get above 55psi. Disassembled to have two metal pieces fall out of the valve assembly. Don't gamble on the product and think you will get a good one. Do your research, you will see this is a widely reported problem.

I bought this to sit next to my new Tormach CNC milling machine, to drive the Fogbuster and Power Draw Bar. It works very well, provides plenty of air and is very quiet. Much quieter than the 30 gal oil-less Craftsman compressor that it replaced!

Surprisingly quiet and compact for it's capacity

I purchased this compressor to replace a smaller unit in my studio. I use the compressor to run a small pneumatic die grinder, as well as multiple airbrushes. I was concerned that it would be too loud in my studio, but it's about as quiet as the airbrush compressor that it replaced, and it fits nicely next to my workbench. I've also used it to run a brad gun during the remodeling of the studio, and it worked great! It is small and light enough that I will also probably end up using it in my wood and metal shop to replace the much larger shop compressor.
