Q:Will a framing gun work with this compressor
by|Apr 7, 2019
5 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Yes it goes to 150 psi

by|May 26, 2019

A:  I would think it would work fine as it has a 6gal. air tank. It works great with the nail gun in the package. The compressor had no problem keeping up with installing Crown Molding & Floor Trim.

by|Apr 8, 2019

A:  Yes has more than adequate pressure to fire a framing gun but may / may not be able to keep up with the demand if you shoot in succession rapidly.

by|Jul 30, 2019

    A:  Yes, there is more than enough pressure for a framing gun.

    by|May 14, 2019

    A:  The manual states that DW45RN DeWALT framing nailer requires 3.7 CFM @ 80 psi. The DeWALT pancake compressor has a flow rate of 2.6 CFM @ 90 psi.

    A:  Most pneumatic tools require between 70-120 psi to operate. The compressor will provide up to 165 psi. Please check the psi specifications on your tool before use.

      Answer This Question

      A:  OH MY GOD YES

      by|Apr 1, 2019

        A:  The flow rate on this compressor is 2.6 CFM @ 90 psi. The DeWALT DW45RN framing nailer requires 3.7 CFM @ 80 psi.

        by|Sep 30, 2019

        A:  Yes I believe so. I’m not sure exactly what u mean by framing. Perhaps framing out a house in which case I would still say yes. We used ours for installing trim and crown molding and I built a table with it.

        by|Apr 2, 2019

          A:  I use it with my framing nailer all the time! Pressure is good and constant however I do stop work when it is running just a minute for it to recover. Haven't had any issues in the two years I have had it in service on my jobsite!

            Q:Is this good for roofing?
            by|Mar 27, 2019
            5 Answers
            Answer This Question

            A:  Yep as long as you just run 1 gun might run a little more then a 10 gal but enough pressure for roofing nail gun

            by|Mar 29, 2019

              A:  I am sure it would work fine if your not in a big hurry trying to nail to fast would lower the pressure and you would have to wait a wile for pressure to build back up

              by|Apr 1, 2019

                A:  I think the compressor is about 2.5-2.6 SCFM. Some of those high speed nailers say 4.6 SCFM or something like that to fully use the nailers capabilities and the compressor will NOT handle one of those. I'm a slow speed nailer and with a single nail gun connected to one of the two ports works fine for my needs.

                by|Mar 31, 2019

                A:  The compressor is fine for this work the rubber hose is too short for only close work you need a 75 to 100 foot hose keep the compressor on the ground

                by|Mar 31, 2019

                A:  no

                            A:  Can you be more specific with the question

                            by|Sep 16, 2019

                              A:  Hello I guess you are asking if it is a 1/2 horsepower unit. The Portable Compressor unit is described in Tank Gallons and air SCFM @ 90 etc. ( it's what the pneumatic nailer you would be using would be looking for to operate correctly) and the Maximum pressure as are all this style. This is the unit I bought because of its light weight and low noise. 41 pounds 165 max pressure and 6 gallon tank. If you were to buy a home large compressor they have HP ranges but are not portable.

                              A:  Yup its ranging until filled

                              by|Jan 27, 2019

                              A:  Some needle bouncing as compressor is filling is normal, I believe. As long as they are stable when the compressor stops running, it should be fine. I have seen this on almost every compressor I have used. If they are are bouncing so much that you can't really tell if compressor is functioning properly, then there is a problem.
