Answer

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

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

Answer

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.

Can it be used to blow out a sprinkler system?

Asked by Thom August 2, 2020
3
Answers

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.

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

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.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
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.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
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...

Not your average pin nailer

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This is a pin nailer packed with great features. It comes in a hard case which is always a nice bonus. It has a selector switch to fire off one nail at a time or fire in rapid succession. I wasn't sure how much I would use that feature, but I have and its great. I have included some pictures showing how incredibly easy it is to clear out a jam. Simply fold down the front, clear the jam and lock back into place. Very easy to quickly get back to work! This thing even has a pencil sharpener built into the belt clip! Also there is a pivot point at the air valve so your hose will twist and turn in any direction, did not appreciate that until I started using it, now I don't ever want to go back. Very solidly built and well designed tool.

Excellent 16 Guage Finish Nailer

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
The DEWALT 16-Gauge Finish Nailer is a complement to my other nailers. The gun is the newest Precision Point design, DWFP71917, redesigned for better nose tip positioning and other modifications. It works with straight nails from an 1 1/4” up to 2 1/2”. The gun is oil free which means no oil splatter on woodwork and the redesigned precision point nose makes it easier to see what you are doing. Its light weight with a trigger mechanism that has a nice sure touch in sequential fire. The nailer feels like an extension of my arm at only four pounds and is a pleasure for working long hours. Jams are really easy to clear, pull up the front cover which exposes the front of the nail strip and remove any bent nails. No tools necessary which is an excellent improvement. In the time I was using it didn't have any jams. The tool comes with a case and two 2” nail strips. The model no longer has the rotating exhaust port and now has a bump and single shot selector knob above the trigger and a nail depth adjustment wheel. It comes with two extra no-mar nose tips. I don't know why there isn't more storage space in the case to carry nail strips, but that's something else. This is a ecellent finish nailer, a comfortable sturdy tool for on the job or doing special projects. This updated model is a clear improvement in design over the older version.
