What is the life expectancy of this compressor?

Asked by JM32 December 25, 2020

Answers

Delivery went well. Took me less than hour to unpack and plug in. Compressor is quieter than I expected. It does take quite a while to fill the tank, but since it charges to 200PSI, it seems reasonable. So far, very happy with the purchase.

Answer

If the cutoff is at 160 PSI, can it run continuously at 90 PSI?

Asked by Mark December 14, 2020
1
Answer

This air compressor pump is capable of running continuously. However, to prolong the life of your air compressor, it is recommended that a 50% average duty cycle be maintained; that is, the air compressor pump should not run more than 30 minutes in any given hour.

What is the duty cycle on this compressor? The manual does not list the duty cycle.

It is recommended that a 50% average duty cycle be maintained; that is, the air compressor pump should not run more than 30 minutes in any given hour.

I have 3 projects I need painted. 1) In home rooms. 2) Sealant on decortive front brick. 3) Basic bookshelf units. Will this unit keep up air supply?

Asked by GMan58AZ July 22, 2020

Answer

With the higher 200 PSI on this 27 gallon compressor, you will have more stored energy in the tank. Using an HVLP style of gun would work well with this compressor. Always check the air requirements of the spray gun you plan to use. This DeWalt 27 gallon is rated with 6.8 SCFM @ 40 PSI.

I had really high hopes!
I bought this after I returned three Husky 20 gallon silent compressors because none of them were restarting after the motor kicked in. They were silent and powerful but all three had the kick-starting problem. This DeWalt is a beast, very powerful. Looks great, the motor starts without any problem. Never tripped the power. These are all the plusses I like. But, here are the problems: First, it is full of RUST! I have drained the tank several times, and it is still bleeding rust every time I empty it making the ground a huge mess. Additionally, it is VERY LOUD! It is by no means a silent compressor. I tried HUSKY and Eagle silent compressors before this, and they were quite silent. This compressor is not silent and it is very loud. It also takes forever to fill it. Eagle would fill its 20-gallon tank in less than five minutes, this one takes over 10 minutes to fill the tank. So, I AM NOT HAPPY WITH THIS PURCHASE! I hope DeWalt can address these issues, particularly the RUST problem.
