Beyond expectations
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this a few months ago and the wife and I decided to build our own cabinets. I have 2 Dewalt drills in addition to the Dewalt air compressor. The air compressor has changed my life. I absolutely am a Dewalt guy and now, I’m in love with air tools now thanks to this compressor. This is the first time I’ve ever owned an air compressor and I’m so glad that I took the plunge. Being a Dewalt guy, there was no choice but Dewalt air and it has definitely not disappointed me.

Great Machine
Even with me being partial to Dewalt Tools, this compressor is the one to have. Especially for guys who shoot texture.
Can't use in upright position
I only gave it one star because when I look at reviews, I always look at the most critical first. I figure other people might do the same. I actually never even turned the thing on to see how it ran. As you can see by the attached pictures, I intended to run it in the upright position due to how my garage is built and where I already had my hose reel. I didn't see the warning label on the display model or I wouldn't have bought it in the first place. I think the reasoning is because in the upright position, the tank fill fittings are closest to the bottom and thus would allow moisture accumulation to go back down into the compressor and gauges. Another thing, the display model boasted the flat free solid rubber tires which I was excited about since I have one on my wheelbarrow. When I got mine home and unboxed, it had tube tires on it. I'm returning mine.

Did not last long
I got about 10 uses out it , I think something went wrong with switch , it will turn on some times , I can not count on it have it sitting in my garage . I have power tools they work great disappointed in air compressor

Regulators/valve systems are junk. Everything leaks. Multiple warranties and multiple compressors and they each have same problems. Buy a different brand. And I'm a Dewalt guy. I have thousands upon thousands of dollars in Dewalt power tools.

runs pretty good
will run several nailers at one , and can keep up with a shingle hogs air consumption . compressor build alot of moisture in the system, not sure if its due to the air pickup being on the bottom of unit, seems to cycle great, cold weather dosent seem to bother it, other than the moisture in the system.

Wont last
I own a construction company and bought two of these just less than a year ago. One lasted about 6 months and the other just quit building air today. When they were new they worked great. But quickly wore out.
