                Answer This Question

                A:  Hello Nachored, We're sorry to hear that the compressor is not building pressure. If this is a new unit, please make sure the drain valve is closed at the bottom. Also then turn the regulator knob to the desired PSI. If this does not resolve your issue please check instruction and troubleshooting on the manual or contact us at wecare@sbdinc.com and reference case #12983942. Thank you Deeris

                        Q:What air pressure do the brad nailers operate at and are they oilless
                        by|Oct 21, 2020
                        3 Answers
                        Answer This Question

                        A:  Yes it is oilless. PSI depends on what length brad you use. I generally have my compressor set to 100psi regardless but I think you could drive a 1 inch brad with as low as 50psi.

                        by|Oct 23, 2020

                        A:  Minimum recommended air pressure is 70 psi. I always operate mine at 100 psi. Dewalt says to not lubricate this tool. It is not needed, and keeps oil off of your work. This is an excellent tool, easy to load and adjust. I am very happy with it.

                        by|Oct 25, 2020

                          A:  Since they use small nails, they work well on lower pressures of 60 psi.
