Questions & Answers


Can I use to stick frame on small jobs?

Asked by Texasborn80 October 21, 2020

Yes you can. I use mine with a Porter Cable finish nail driver and a Porter Cable framing nail driver without a problem. If you're driving a bunch of studs in place, just let the compressor catch up after driving a bunch of nails, say about 5 studs.

Can i use this compressor with a power sander?

Asked by Joeg October 7, 2020

The DWFP55126 is for use with pneumatic tools that require between 1-165 psi for operation.

Will this compressor come with 2 guages as pictured

Asked by CJ September 26, 2020

Yes, is good compressor. I used for to paint 2 gate and worked good.

Can I charge this compressor for about 3 or 4 minutes after turning it on, or does it take longer...

Asked by Matt September 25, 2020

You can plug the compressor in. Longer it is plugged in, the fuller the tank will be (until completely full). You don't need to have the unit plugged in to provide air to the air line; until the tank is empty.

I need instructions on how to start this compressor for use with a Brad Nailer, and instructions ...

Asked by Matt September 25, 2020

Please contact your local Home Depot or DEWALT at 1-800-433-9258 for further assistance.

What's the difference between 16 gauge and 18 gauge

Asked by Spanky September 18, 2020

The gauge number refers to the size of the nails that the nailer holds and shoots. 16 gauge nail is larger than the 18 gauge brad nails.

Does brad nailer use staples? Need something to put wire fence onto split rail

Asked by Jason September 5, 2020

No, it is a brad nailer. Brad nailers only drive brads (finish nails), a stapler drives staples. I wouldnt use a narrow crown stapler for fencing. Just get galvanized fence staples and hand drive them.

will this work for sandblasting?

Asked by nate August 4, 2020

I would suggest a larger compressor for sandblasting

Can it be used to blow out a sprinkler system?

Asked by Thom August 2, 2020

No. I have a sprinkler system too, with 19 zones. This compressor has too much pressure and not sufficient volume. You need only 5-10 psi but lots of volume to blow out the sprinkler heads. The pros use a trailer mounted compressor like they use for jack hammers.

How do I stop this product from creeping across a concrete floor?

Asked by MDK July 14, 2020

Put the unit against the wall with a price of rubber or thick cardboard between them

Damage, vibrate a lot, move on the ground.
Customer review from logo
Compressor arrived damage, packaging was deficient, the compressor vibrate a lot and walk on the ground by itself. This is the first time I am disappointed by a DEWALT product.

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.

There are two different versions of this pancake compressor. I'm not sure which one is older, nor if there is any significant difference in performance. The unit shown in the picture has two gauges - one for the tank pressure and one for the tool pressure. The unit I received has only one gauge - for the tank pressure. The regulator knob sets the pressure for the tool but there is no gauge to confirm the regulated pressure to the tool. I guess I'd prefer two separate pressure gauges but it's not enough to return the unit and probably explains the low price from Home Depot - you got a batch of the cheaper versions so you could offer a bigger discount.

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.

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

Light and works flawlessly! What a great combo kit at an excellent price. I've had this brad nailer and air compressor combo kit for just a couple weeks now. I bought it to do a large hardwood flooring job in my house. I used it to replace the flooring of my whole upstairs, 3 bedrooms, hallway and stairs with 3/4 bruce solid hardwood flooring. Both the nailer and compressor are very light, I was able to work quickly, the nailer never misfired and always drove the nail all the way in. The saved me a lot of time and money. Highly recommended!

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.
