By Jason Wagner on September 7, 2009
(This compressor was refurbished when I bought it through Amazon) I typically am satisfied with Dewalt products and almost every cordless tool or saw I have are theirs. I feel like this compressor is one step above something from Harbor Freight. When I first got it it ran for the break-in period then wouldn't turn on. Got something electrical fixed by the nearest service center. Then after a few months of very light use it started leaking from somewhere around the piston. There's a metal tube that has a poor seal to the piston head. I took it apart and everything is cheaply made. So now it will fill to 130psi, and hiss like crazy for 5 minutes going back down to 0. I wanted quiet and light, but I'm thinking I'd rather lug around 50-60 lbs than a light weight piece of junk. *EDIT* After taking the compressor apart myself I found a check valve that was corroded and leaked. I ordered another one for $12 and installed it myself. By the way, the unit was missing several screws and the plastic housing was held together with two different sized allen screws that looked like spare parts. The compressor now works again but I was just about ready to throw it away.

This is a great compressor for what it is designed for which is finish carpentry. I really like the lower noise factor in the oilless design. My only dislike is they did not build this compressor with the intent to be able to attach a water vapor trap to prolong the life of pneumatic nail guns. I was able to put one on with some creative thinking and reconfiguration of the air flow which cost me my time and an extra 40 dollars. Aside from from the one dislikable aspect of the design this is still a great compressor.

UPDATE 8/6/2010: After frustration with the constant water problem, I have modified the tank plumbing to stop the vapor/droplet problem... I have now plumbed the compressor outlet to the bottom drain and the header is still fed by the air outlet alone. This is now putting the water vapor into the tank. It cost about $15 in plumbing parts, but at least when I use it to blow dust out of computers it is not spitting water into the electronics anymore...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Right to the point: This compressor, due to the way it is plumbed, produces A LOT of WATER that goes directly into the header, then into your expensive nailers...

Only workaround, without buying and rigging a water filter, is to tilt the compressor so that the header inlet is at a downward pitch and the outlets are at the top of the pitch. But add higher volume (framing nailer) and you will get water droplets/vapor no matter what position the compressor is in.

The problem is that there is only one fitting on the tank (besides drain) and the air that the compressor makes bypasses the tank and goes directly into the header and into your tool. Sadly, this air is LOADED with water vapor and quickly condenses into water. I get very little water in the tank as the air and water have to take a 90 degree turn to enter into the tank. Least resistance would just take the air straight through into the header during demand times.

The solution for DeWalt: add a second fitting to the tank so that the compressor directly feeds into the tank and then the other fitting goes to the header for use. That way the water enters and stays IN THE TANK.

Otherwise, this is a GREAT little compressor. Very portable and relatively quiet. Tough design.

As you can see from other reviews, this system creates a lot of water and is prone to rusting. I too have been faced with a major repair and when I asked for some consideration on the repair, Dewalt walked away and washed their hands even after I told them that I was a big fan as evidenced by my owning a number of Dewalt tools including a thickness planer, 12" slider miter, 4 cordless and 1 corded drill, 2 sawzalls, multiple nail guns, radio, chop saw stand and the list goes on. I took the compressor into Acme Tool and they described this unit as the equivalent of a bic lighter and they recommended an oiled Makita instead after telling me that they thought Dewalt would work with me. Dewalt did nothing, even after I escalated the conversation to corporate. I am letting you all know that this unit should not be on your list and as far as after purchase consideration, this experience has poisoned the Dewalt well and I will buy any other brand but Dewalt in the future. They were willing to kick a multi-thousand dollar customer to the curb over what might have been a $125 repair bill. Makes no sense.

A very displeased and disgruntled former Dewalt customer.

By far, the best design in a portable compressor - low profile, not top heavy, lightweight, easy to carry with one hand, as in doesn't jab you while carrying, and easy to access all controls, and has convenient cord storage.

The problems with poor build are well documented, this compressor won't last long for it's INTENDED use. Mine quit after a year and a half of medium use - if it had lasted 5 years, I probably wouldn't have thought a lot about it, and bought another one.

I won't buy another Dewalt compressor, I only wish other companies would copy this body design, I can't imagine a justification for their more top heavy, awkward designs.
