Commercial Quality Portable Gas Compressor
Having a Gas powered compressor is very convenient. This is a top commercial quality unit meant to be used on the field. The wheelbarrow compressor feels very sturdy overall. The painting on all the components appear to provide great protection from the elements, especially if you live on hot/humid climates. The interconnecting hoses on the compressor are made of braided stainless steel. The unit comes with 4 high quality rubber feet (see photo) which prevents scratching surfaces or transferring vibration to the ground. Tanks include drain valves used to release all stored moist air and rusting inside the tank. The unit comes fully assembled, and it gets delivered on a crate. It is not light but 2 people can easily load/unload it from a truck’s bed. My 110 lbs. wife helps me load the unit on my truck. The unit comes equipped with a solid rubber front wheel. This is a tremendous advantage over pneumatic wheels, since it does not need to be filled. Maneuvering in compressor unit in solid ground is very easy. It can be accomplished by one person. The unit can be placed almost vertical which allows going through tight spaces. Handling the unit in soft ground or dirt is a bit more challenging because of its single wheel design. Noise level from engine is not the quietest but it is not supper loud either (I measured somewhere between 65-70 db.). As you can see on the video, I am still able to speak over the noise of the compressor. It is also important to mention that once the air pressure inside the accumulators reached 150 psi, the unit gets a bit quieter. I will still recommend the use of P.P.E. (earmuffs or plugs) if working close to the unit or in an environment where noise resonates. A manual for the compressor and a manual for the Honda engine is included with the unit. Make sure you read through it as it contains the breaking procedure for the compressor. The breaking process is fairly straight forward. After going through a checklist of items the compressor is ran for 30 minutes with the accumulator by-pass valve open. This allows the engine/compressor to run at the higher power setting for the entire 30 minutes. The Honda Engine turned on the first time I cranked it. Engine and compressor come pre-filled with necessary oil. Used frame nailing tool to complete approximately 100 linear feet of wood fencing without any interruption. I am very satisfied with this compressor. I would recommend!

Perfect on the go
Having a mobile wheel repair unit, this air compressor is excellent in help me complete my job on the go. It's size and flat back design allows this compressor to fit in the truck against the wall without taking up unneeded space. I use this compressor to run small sanders and HPLV spray paint guns without any problems. The front wheel makes it very easy to maneuver the compressor on the job site. The noise level is very normal, since I always expect that the smaller compressors are louder then the larger ones. Over all, I'm very satisfied with this compressor. Highly recommend on small job sites.

Quality gas powered compressor
Up until now my compressors have always electric, which is a problem when they are needed far from the house. This compressor sets me free. It comes with two manuals, one for the 4 cycle Honda engine and one for the compressor itself. At 200 lbs, this is no lightweight but the wheelbarrow handles make it easy to move, even over rough ground. At first it seemed very unstable and top heavy, but I quickly learned that it was easy to balance so long as you paid attention and kept it strictly upright. I followed the breaking in instructions, but found that the unloader valve was defective. After getting a replacement valve a week later, the compressor could be broken in and it has performed perfectly. The engine start easily each time. However it is far from silent. Even idling it could easily be heard at 600 ft. Finally I am liberated from extension cords!

Compressed air without needing electricity
This is a review for the Dewalt 8 Gal. 150 psi 5.5 HP Belt Drive Gas-Powered Wheelbarrow Air Compressor model number DXCMTB5590856. That's quite a mouthful, which is only fitting since this air compressor is quite the handful. For starters this compressor is really heavy. It was delivered by freight truck and strapped to an over-sized pallet due to its length. With the pallet and packaging included the air compressor weighs in at a beefy 225 pounds so make sure you have some help getting it off the delivery truck. The good news is that this ships fully assembled. So, if you have a long length of 2 by 10 or 2 by 12 you can use it to create a ramp and carefully roll it down the ramp using the front wheel. Off the skid and out of the packaging the overall weight should drop to about 170 pounds. This is shipped with the factory with the engine and compressor oil already filled. As far as construction quality goes, I can't find anything to complain about. Whenever I get an item, I like to look it over carefully and try to spot any defects in the fit and finish. I'm happy to say that I was not able to find anything. Dewalt did a pretty good job with the welding and the enamel finish is consistent and covers all of the exposed metal. It's a Dewalt so I guess I shouldn't expect any less. Dewalt rates this compressor at an impressive 150psi providing 11.6 SCFM @ 40psi and 9.9 SCFM @ 90psi. This should be more than enough to run just about anything at a normal job site except for an air-powered jackhammer. The highest volume/pressure air tool I own is an air powered drill which uses around 9 SCFM @ 90psi. This compressor had no trouble keeping up with it which is good because the two attached hot dog tanks do not have a huge amount of capacity. I feel like the eight gallon capacity is a little on the low side, especially when compared to offerings from competitors, but I guess you have to accept that as a trade-off that comes with less weight. If you really wanted to I'm sure you could figure out a way to attach additional capacity. Speaking of portability, the wheel-barrow design makes this really easy to move around on concrete despite its weight. The hand grips are rubberized but not made of foam so they should stand up to quite a bit of abuse. I feel like the front tire could stand to be a little larger or taller, only because it becomes a bit more difficult to push it over soft ground. If Dewalt could figure out a way to fit one of those huge wheel-barrow tires on it, I bet it would make things a lot easier. When I first looked at the pictures on the Home Depot website I thought this had a set of 4 caster wheels on the bottom. Those are actually just rubber feet. I can see I was mistaken now when I look at the site again. Caster wheels would probably be a bad idea on soft ground like sand or mud since they would just sink in, and on hard surfaces it would roll around due to the vibration. Using the rubber feet is probably the better way to go. It looks like you could put a set of caster wheels on it though if you really wanted to. This is powered by a 5.5HP 160cc Honda 4 stroke engine so you don't need an electricity supply of any kind at your job site. That means you can leave the bulky generator and electric air compressor at home. This would also be an awesome option to have if you need to use air tools to work on say, a boat at the end of a dock or a truck out in the woods, on the beach, etc. Roll the compressor out to where you need it, fire up the engine, let it build up some pressure, and away you go. At the time of writing the Home Depot website's specifications chart shows "Power Source" - "Electric". This must be a typo because it doesn't require external electricity of any sort. The engine is really easy to start. It started up for me on the first pull and since there is a pressure relief valve I didn't have to fight the compressor pump to get it started. As far as engine loudness goes I'd say it was about what I expected. Reminded me of about how much sound a large pressure washer would make. With both hot dog tanks completely empty it only takes the 5.5Hp Honda engine 52 seconds to go from 0psi to 150psi. The compressor reaches a temperature of about 205 degrees at an ambient air temperature of 75 degrees. So, make sure you keep your hands away from it. The air cooling seems to do an adequate job of keeping everything within operating temp even on a hot day though. Once the air tank reaches about 155psi the pressure switch engages and the engine will throttle down until to a near idle until the tank pressure drops to about 125psi. If the tank pressure drops to 125psi the engine ramps up to keep supplying air as needed. During idle the engine is surprisingly quiet. Above the front wheel is a metal tube that looks like it's meant to guard the wheel. I'm not 100% positive but I think this is where the air from the first tank travels through to get to the second tank. Each tank has it's own drain valve even though the video I took only shows one. Now that I've been able to use it for a while there are quite a few things I like about. 1) The tank pressure and outlet pressure gauges are liquid filled. The beauty of liquid filled gauges is that the vibration from the engine that would be transferred to the needle in the gauge is dampened. This makes it SO much easier to read the gauges while the engine is running. Honda's 5.5HP engine does run very smooth, but it doesn't run THAT smooth. 2) Dewalt used steel braided hoses to go from the pump to the primary tank. Why do I like that? Because if they used rigid steel or brass lines it would only be a matter of time until the vibration of the engine and pump caused them to fatigue and fail. Especially under 150psi of pressure. 3) The rubber feet are very thick. I feel like they'll give me a lot of years of use before they need to be replaced due to wear. Once set down it doesn't move around at all while the engine is running. 4) The air-coupler is well protected. This also helps to protect it from being smashed against something if you lose your footing while moving it and it drops on it's side. Dewalt could have mounted it up high or off to the side but I feel like this was the right decision. 5) Dewalt advertises this as having a Solberg air filter. I've never heard of that brand, too me it just looks like a filter. That being said, it is easy to get to and replace. It's not buried down inside the pump and can be cleaned or replaced just by rotating the cover to unlock it. 6) The spark plug is a bit difficult to get to but Honda, (guessing it was Honda) had the foresight to put a plastic pull grip on the spark plug boot. I've never seen this done before but it is a great idea. 7) The air pump is belt driven and it's easy to get to the mechanisms when it needs to be tightened and no special tools are required. 8) The enamel paint feels very tough and it was well applied (especially to the weld points) which is important for a tool that will be used outside in various weather conditions, such as, rain and snow. 9) It just feels sturdy overall. When I pick it up by the handles to wheel it around the frame doesn't flex and it is well balanced. It doesn't try to tip to one side or the other. Some things I'd like to see Dewalt include: 1) Two air-couplers. Sure, you can buy a two or three or four way manifold and pop it on there, but you're likely using this with more than one air tool at the same time. Having an extra air-coupler would be nice. If you could adjust their outlet pressure independently that would be even better. 2) A larger front wheel. That would make it a bit easier to roll across soft surfaces like sand or wet soil. Overall, this compressor is awesome. My two item wish list is certainly not a deal breaker. I would definitely take a look at this unit if you're in the market. I'm usually pretty stingy about giving out 5 stars but I haven't found anything worthy of deducting a star.

Heavy Duty And High Quality
First impression of this is WOW. This is built for work, every part of this compressor is top quality. For a gas powered unit it's relatively quiet at; 70 decibels (Loud Conversation, Traffic) building air pressure and 65 decibels (Normal Conversation) when in the unloader kicks it drops down to an idle. Starting with the Honda motor that's known for long life, quiet smooth operation and low maintenance. The motor starts easily as the compressor has an unloader valve so you are never pulling against the compressor head even when the compressor is at full pressure. The motor was also filled with the correct amount of oil. Then the two cylinder cast iron single stage compressor pump seems to be of very good build quality. All the edges on the pump have be smoothed down and a good coat of powder coating applied. The large paper element air filter is easy to replace with just a twist of the wrist. The compressor pump was also filled with the correct amount of oil. The compressor tanks and body are very well made of heavy gauge welded steel. The front tire is solid so there won't ever be any flats. The unit has soft larger rubber feet so the compressor won't walk across the floor like other wheelbarrow type compressors. The handle bars are placed so they are right at the correct angle and height when transporting the unit. For this type of compressor it is also very stable when being wheeled from one area to another. There are two very nice stainless steel oil filled pressure gauges, one for the tank pressure and one that reads the regulators output pressure. Each tank has its own drain valve to dump the pressure and remove condensed water. Once running I used a variety of tools and found that all of my tools except a midsized metal grinder ran fine and without interruptions. For anything around a normal construction site like nail guns or painting equipment this compressor should be fine for both pressure and capacity needed. This is a top of the line unit. It has everything needed to start working on a job site except a hose. Highly recommend this unit if you need compressed air where no power is available.

High Quality Wheelbarrow Air Compressor
A gasoline-powered mobile air compressor is a “must-have” tool for most construction contractors and anyone requiring compressed air outdoors. I recently obtained the DeWalt 8 Gallon 150 psi Gas-Powered Wheelbarrow Air Compressor for outdoor use. After using the DeWalt Air Compressor for several projects, I am very impressed with the features and performance. The DeWalt Gas-Powered Wheelbarrow Air Compressor arrived fully assembled and prefilled with engine and compressor oil. It weighs 168 lbs, but is easily maneuverable with the wheelbarrow design. After fully reading the instructions, adding gasoline and performing the initial startup procedure, the air compressor is ready for work. It comes with a commercial Honda GX-160, 5.5 Hp Engine and belt-driven air compressor motor. The air compressor motor is oil-lubricated and uses dual in-line cast iron cylinders that produces 9.9 SCFM at 100 psi. The two 4 gallon tanks operate at a maximum of 150 psi. I especially like the unloader feature that idles the engine when not needed. The liquid-filled pressure gauges are also more accurate and durable than regular gauges. The DeWalt 8 Gallon 150 psi Gas-Powered Wheelbarrow Air Compressor is perfect for anyone needing compressed air outside. I would have liked for there to be two air outlets. It’s a high quality tool and comes with a 2-year limited warranty. The cost is also competitive. Highly recommended for contractor use!!
