      The pressure regulator manifold, the part that holds the popoff valve, a pressure gauge, a pressure regulator and two female quick connects, turns like a steering wheel. From its proper position it turns both clockwise and counter clock wise about 30 degrees before the manifold shroud bumps into the pump housing. It appears to me that the 3/4" NPT nipple with thread dope on each end needed to be made up another round. This now requires cutting the hose clamp on the hose that goes from the manifold to the pressure switch in the pump housing, the removal of the pump housing (3 screws), the removal of the manifold shroud, turning the manifold 1 more round clockwise if possible, buy a new hose clamp and install, install the pump housing, install the manifold shroud and check for leaks. If unable to make a complete turn, a 3/4" NPT close nipple with thin jam nuts would probably work. This compressor was not assembled properly and is not up for the task of a construction site. It is not safe for this manifold to fit loosely to the tank. Also the paint job on the bottom of the tank looks like it was set down in dirt while the paint was still wet. I buffed it out a little bit I cut a shim out of PDC board 1" by 1/2 " by 5-7/8" long and wedged it between the manifold shroud and the pump housing and ran a bead of Flex Seal glue along the shroud side of the shim. Because of the secure fit of the shroud and the manifold, this seemed to stabilize the problem. I don't consider this a heavy duty solution, but there are no leaks. I bought a DeWalt because I expected it to be Heavy Duty and well made.

      For its price point ($179 on sale), this is a great bundle. Compressor is light, so portable, but also powerful for its size at 165psi. Others complained that despite two air connectors that there is only one pressure gauge - definitely no big deal for me since I most often use just one connector at a time. In the event I use both the odds are that the two pneumatic tools can utilize the same psi. The regulator is as easy as it gets, merely turn knob to desired psi. Compressor is typical in terms of noise with typical vibration. Also, the hose from the tank to the air receptacles on the tank was not kinked liked others said. Only time will tell, but given the Dewalt branding I expect to be durable. The included brad nailer is great - again, particularly for the bundle price. Pinpoint accurate and did not jam. Holds nails up to 2.25” which is flexible. The included air hose (25’) was the biggest surprise. Nice hose, actually used instead of my existing 50’ Coleman rubber hose. Included hose lies flat, does not twist and has a 300psi burst point. In summary, this is a very good bundle for the price. Great for DIYers and small/medium duty professionals. I am very pleased with purchase.

        Good value, poor manufacturing quality
        Overall fit for purpose compressor with a decent value for the bundle, however not impressed with the manufacturing/design quality. Hose connection from tank to pressure valve/regulator is kinked. Wonder if this is the standard assembly now. Very disappointing DeWalt... you are better than this.

            Redesigned compressor combo kit is a dissappintment
            Dewalt used to sell a pancake compressor with brad nailer combo kit that had better features than this one, even though the price remained the same. Main issues are: (1) regulator pressure gauge no longer exisists. It has been replaced with a cheap turn knob, (2) the brad nailer no longer has a swivel air fitting, even though the pictures appear to show that it does. The swivel fitting was included on the previous design, (3) the hose is no longer 50ft. It is now a 25ft. The description on the HD website says it should be 50 ft, but it’s a 25 ft in the box. I’m disappointed in my first DeWalt purchase, especially after knowing they have a good reputation of building quality tools with premium feautures and materials. This combo kit does not set it apart from other brands that offer similar or better features at a lower price point. DeWalt clearly redesigned this kit to lower their costs, but those savings did not reach the customers.

              Disappointed
              Bought the compressor "new" but it was anything but. Scratches, broken handle, dirt and compressed air in the tank. Been a loyal Dewalt fan forever, very disappointing.

                Excellent item for simple home-based operations
                I chose the Dewalt 6-gallon, pancake-style compressor to replace a small, inefficient 1-gallon unit I have used for several years. The extra capacity in this model is evident when you start using your tools; I now have full pressure for a longer work period before the pump has to kick on to supply more air. It is very sturdy with rubber feet on the bottom to keep it in place yet it is still light enough to be moved where needed by the comfortable handle. Getting the included brad nailer was a bonus since I have an upcoming project with lots of trim to install. The magazine capacity for this nailer is 100, 18-gauge fasteners ranging between 5/8-inch up to 2-1/8-inch long. This lightweight tool (2.6 pounds) has an adjustable depth setting to allow the fasteners to be set flush with the finished surface or slightly recessed and/or can be set to bump/contact action for rapid nailing on flat surfaces. Should a fastener become jammed in the nosepiece, just flip open the latch on the nose door to remove. Lastly, I had to smile when I noticed that Dewalt has even included a pencil sharpener built into the belt hook.

                  Once I got myself familiar with this compressor and nail gun, they are very easy to use and quite capable of many tasks around the house. If you are not familiar with using an air compressor and nail gun, the initial setup can be a bit challenging - especially if you are cautious. Although I read through the compressor setup and usage a few times, I found it lacking for a novice. I went searching online for an overview - and fortunately found one that allowed me to feel a lot more confident in using the compressor. It would be good for Dewalt to produce and reference a beginner’s video, thereby keeping their printing costs down but helping a novice use this equipment. The nail gun documentation is good with the exceptions of nail loading and depth of nail head insertion, which I found to be odd. Again, I was a novice with this tool, so I struggled with this step. This could be quickly and easily addressed in their existing documentation. Once I successfully loaded the nail gun, it was very safe and easy to use and my first project was re-securing the back of a book shelf to the unit. That was a piece of cake.

                  I used this Dewalt 18-Gauge Brad Nailer and Pancake Compressor to replace the rotting painted wood brick mold around my shop door with plastic brick mold. I used 2" brads and the framing was about 12 year old wood - old wood is harder. I set the compressor output to 100 psi and every brad drove into the wood perfectly. The compressor pumped 3 minutes to go from 0 to 165 psi and lost back to 155 psi in one hour, but then it held 155 psi for over 24 hours. I like the easy to use valve on the bottom of the tank to drain any condensation. I estimate the air hose is about 25' long. The brad nailer is light and easy to use. The pancake compressor is also light and the giant handle on the top makes it a breeze to carry - even up stairs. My only complaint is that there is no carry case for the brad nailer (and your brads) included.

                  I knew I'd love this one before I ordered it. It's a great combination. Works perfectly and I even think it looks great too. Here's my breakdown: Hose: Male and female quick releases came installed and they work fine. The Hose is very flexible yet sturdy. It goes easily around corners and is easy to roll up. It doesn't have too much of a memory so it isn't a hassle to coil. Of course it has the signature yellow and black. Compressor: 6 gallons is a great size. It's heavy of course but my old one is a lot heavier. Great, thick rubber feet absorb the vibration to stop "walking" of the compressor and it reduces the vibration sound. It came with 2 QR's installed. It has a cord winder and a nice thick, handle to carry it. The pressure adjustment is the best I've ever used. It's extremely easy to use. just turn the knob to the pressure you need and go. No turning knobs and waiting for the pressure to drop. It has a simple 1/4 turn valve for air and moisture relief. Brad Nailer. Works easily and well. The release for jams is front and center and very easy to use. I really like the depth adjustment being so obvious and accessible. It's a yellow wheel just under the trigger. The belt clip is plastic and I'm afraid the first time I drop it, it'll break. It even has a built in pencil sharpener and a 7" rule below the magazine. I really like it but it's the amount of plastic on it that made me give it a 4 star on quality Overall it's a fantastic combo that you're going to like as much as I do.

                  Doesn't hold air
                  It does everything it's designed to do EXCEPT hold air for more than 24 hours. I will charge it up to about 150 psi, and 24 hours later there is no pressure. Every air compressor I have owned has held air, so it's ready to use without "filling". I am going to attempt to return despite not having the box... Silly

                      Received air compressor and it came "plug & play", fired right up, built up to 155 Lbs and shut off. After reading all comments about leaking air, I let it set for over a week before actually using it. One week later, it still had 100 Lb air still in tank, very happy about that part.Used it today and worked like a champ!. I took off sprocket and final drive motor off a mini excavator, including a couple bottom rollers that had been on since 2005 (new). All bolts also had locktight which took more power to take off. (23) tough bolts total. Very happy with this compressor. Hopefully it will last many years. The above job will be it's toughest chore that I will ever use it for, a happy camper!, so far, so good. I would recommend to any homeowner or small shop owner. The little extra boost with the PSI made the difference from the "other average size compressors" that I researched.

                      Just what I was looking for
                      I had been meaning to get a smaller compressor to use with my nailers for some time now, to get away from lugging around my large wheeled one, and this DeWalt model fit the bill nicely. This unit is light and compact, making it well-suited for work up on the roof, and provides ample CFM's to run my framing and finish guns. The unit arrived well-packaged, with no damage, and it's ready to run right out of the box. From totally empty, it takes just under 3.5 minutes to fill. It weighs something around 30 pounds, and with it's large carry handle and compactness, it's easy enough to lug up a ladder, or throw in the back of the truck. It's also fairly quiet - certainly a good bit quieter than the one I have been using - making it ideal for indoor use. The tripod feet, with their rubber boots, make it very stable on pitched surfaces. I did initially have some trouble getting the hose couplings to insert into the couplers deep enough to stay, but that seemed to correct itself after a bit. I must admit that the ones I'm using are discount-store quality, so they may be the issue. I did fill the tank and leave it sit overnight, and noted no discernible drop in pressure. With the features that I've touched on - the unit's compactness and portability, and it's relative quietness of operation - this unit will be perfect for my intended use, pneumatic nailing. While it also may see some use in filling tires, this unit is in no way designed or intended for use with things like cut-off tools, sanders, grinders and such. Stay with tools that don't exceed the CFM ratings of this compressor and I think you will be pleased.

                      Compact Air
                      Packaging & Assembly: Item came reasonably packaged with no damage. Open the box & remove a horizontal cardboard spacer on the top. Package contents: Fully assembled compressor & Instruction booklet. No extra cardboard or packaging inside other than the exterior box itself. First Impressions/Features: Item is lite enough to be easily portable. Plastic was used in various locations of the compressor to keep the weight down; handle & decorative panel(s). Rather than metal plumbing from the compressor pump to the tank, a hose was used. I’ve found, on other compressors, that the metal tubing becomes hot to the touch with no shielding to protect the user. This compressor uses a rubber hose. The compressor features (3) rubber feet firmly attached to the metal legs welded to the tank. The 6-gallon pancake tank sits close to the ground and is fairly sturdy against tipping. The tank also features a nicely done drain cock but it will require tipping of the compressor to drain it all out since this is not located at the lowest point of the tank. The tank & line pressure gauges are easy to read and the tank features (2) quick couplings at a 90° to each other. Onboard cord storage round out the list of basic features. Use: This compressor is average in noise level and tank filling time. The extra PSI rating over other items of similar use give this a bit of an advantage. Pricewise, they are average to slightly above average vs. other compressors of similar features. As for its intended use. Compressors of this style are not for high SCFM demand but rather shorter “burst” demands such as nail guns, tire inflation, staplers, intermittent dust blowing. This is not designed for long duration die grinding, sanding, etc… Don’t expect it to perform high-volume tasks without a fast decrease in air pressure and lengthy recovery time. If you use this for it’s designed use, you should be quite pleased with its overall performance & compact size/weight. This compressor excels in the category of portability. I would have liked to see a little on-board storage for small items like inflator chucks, needles, etc...

                      perfectly capable little air compressor for the average homeowner
                      I purchased this air compressor combo to use during our renovation of our primary bedroom in our new home. Did a fantastic job of installing our trim and moldings. While i would not recommend this unit for any sort of heavy commercial application for the average homeowner with a weekend project id say it would keep up with most needs

                            Absolutely love it. Pulled it out the box, connected the hose, loaded some brads I had from another project, turned it on, and started installing crown molding. I did the entire bathroom and the compressor never cycled back on once. I bought other connectors so the air compressor is useful for other projects, like finally cleaning the sawdust off of my miter saw.
