Is this compressor a 8.6 bar

Asked by MARK February 23, 2021
2
Answers

Max pressure is 155 psi or 10.7 bar, so yes.

Will this run an orbital sander?

Asked by Dean June 21, 2020
1
Answer

This air compressor delivers 6.0 SCFM @ 90 PSI. The orbital sander must require less than what the air compressor delivers to operate. If the orbital sander will be used continuously, we would recommend that you purchase an air compressor that delivers at least twice the required SCFM @ 90 PSI.

The biggest difference between the DEWALT compressors is the DXCM271 pump technology. The DXCM271 offers 40% longer air tool runtime increase versus the DXCMLA1983012. The DCM271 also offers a low volt easy start motor that will operate with extension cords of at least 12 gauge and 50 ft. or less. The DXCMLA1983012 does not have this starting capability. The DXCM271 is 5 lbs. lighter and comes with pneumatic wheels for maximum portability around the shop or job site. Overall, the DXCM271 outperforms compared to the DXCMLA1983012.

Can I run two tools at the same time?

Asked by Kevin November 2, 2019
2
Answers

In order to properly support the SCFM air delivery requirements of two air tools running simultaneously, a larger two-stage 60 or 80 gallon compressor is recommended. The larger compressor is needed if you plan to run continuously operating tools such as grinders, sanders, sandblasters - where a good deal of constant continuous air flow is required to support the tool(s).

No problem running my sander, drill and die grinder. My only complaint is that it is somewhat difficult to reach and turn the valve on the bottom of the tank to release any water. I have to tilt the compressor and rest the handle on the bench to be able to reach my hand in to turn it.

Works great, easily runs Ingersoll Rand 2235 TI Max high torque 1/2 impact. I opted for 3/8 hose with high flow 1/4 air fittings. This compressor had the most CFM at 90 psi for the size and cost. After researching many options, this was it. Very pleased so far.

Works well powers my air tools a little noisy when running .

Great compressor
It has enough power to easily power an air nailer. It is a bit loud, but with that amount of power, I expect it’ll be louder than smaller units. We bought it a month ago and have no complaints.

I’ve only had it for about five days but I don’t find anything I don’t like about it all At this time. Seems to be built really well and will do our jobs nicely. I like the compactness of it because it fits in a small space.

Powerful compressor
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this compressor to replace my Kobalt compressor, so impressed with how powerful it is!! I wish i could have all the cordless nailers from DeWalt ! About to start saving up to buy Cordless tools from DeWalt now !!!

Great Compressor
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I use it for a variety of things, but bought it to blow out my sprinklers in the fall. In an couple more years, it will have paid for itself. Has a large enough tank to handle the job. The tank does lose pressure for each sprinkler station, but by the time I walk from the valve location to check on things, the tank has re-pressurized. It is quite heavy, but this old guy is able to handle it.
