  • Manufacturing Quality Control Not Good, and Neither is Dewalt Support
Style: Compressor
I ordered this item based on the features and product reviews. Unfortunately it arrived with a manufacturing defect. There are three main components to this unit: the compressor, the tank, and the gauge assembly. When I went to remove the unit from the box it was clear that the compressor wasn't properly attached to the tank. It looks like you should be able to attach it by removing a couple of screws, sliding it down onto the support legs, then shifting it over to lock it into place. That sadly does't work since the gauge assembly prevents you from shifting it over far enough, so to get the compressor it appears you have to remove the gauges from the tank. This is more than I wanted to mess with on a brand new tool. I tried calling Dewalt support but that didn't go well either. After calling the 800 number listed on the instruction booklet and waiting for quite a while, the lady said I called the wrong number and that they don't handle air compressors. She forwarded me to someone else. After waiting for several more minutes I finally got through. I gave the person the model number, but then she said they don't handle that model number compressor. I also tried their online chat support, but after sitting and waiting for 45 mins no representative ever answered. I boxed up the unit and am returning it for a refund. ... show more

  • Absolute junk twice
Style: Compressor
I purchased this as a portable unit at my ranch. I have an ingersol shop compressor and a Porter cable pancake which I keep in the garage for small jobs. The Dewalt has been a failure. Not once but the replacement sent (promptly) had the same fault. In each case I unpacked and checked the unit for operation and left it for a period to ensure there was no leakage. After about 3 days of sporadic use the unit started leaking air from with the enclosed pump area. At first is was just a noise then after a few hours it would go from 160 PSi to 0 in a few hours. I have a great number of dewalt tools and all have been reliable even after many years of hard service. The pancake compressor is junk. I will buy a different manufacturer for this light occasion unit. Vey dissappointing ... show more

  • Faulty Assembly
Style: Compressor
This compressor is really good for the weekend warrior, tank pressure is adequate for a DIY and the regulator is accurate, the compressor is easy to shut down and drain. BUT BEWARE!! When I first used my compressor it would not reach tank pressure (160 psi), I would hear a hissing sound and the pump would not automatically shut off. I checked the relief vale and the drain to make sure they were both closed, they were. So I took off the plastic shroud covering the pump and valve assembly, which was a pain all in its own. I found out there is a stainless steel line coming out of the pump, and a rubber hose connecting the stainless line to the tank. The rubber hose was not properly crimped on the stainless line (the crimp was tightened, but not over the stainless line). I had to destroy the factory crimp to remove it, and I used a 3/8" Sharkbite crimp to secure the rubber hose on the stainless line. Now the tank reaches tank pressure and automatically shuts off. Faulty assembly, I don't know if this is a common problem, but that is why the compressor got 3 stars. ... show more

Style: Compressor
Seems I have the same problem with Dewalt air compressor as a lot of other reviewers. This is my 2nd compressor and it has air leaks like the first one. It’s a shame that Dewalt is selling units like this ! I’m a big fan of Dewalt and have had great experiences with their hand tools. This is the only compressor I have found that will keep up with the work load SHAME ON YOU DEWALT !!! ... show more

  • Small, 110V, lightweight and 165psi....✔
Style: Compressor
This compressor is being used mostly to run some nail guns and maybe air up an occasional tire on lawn equipment. A lot easier than running hoses to our 80 gallon 220V compressor and waiting for that to pump up. Checked it out real good when it arrived knowing that some other reviews had issues with damage. Ours got here in one piece with nothing broken thankfully. I like the sturdy handle on top to carry it. Weighs 30 pounds. Pretty light. Also has a place to wrap the power cord to keep it out of the way. Three feet on the bottom have a rubber cover to keep the noise level down. LIKE: 1.) Light about 30 or so pounds. 2.) Has rubber feet on the bottom. 3.) Pumps up to 165psi. 4.) Sturdy carrying handle. 5.) Place to wrap the power cord so I won't trip over it..👀. Not So Great: 1.) Can't think of anything yet.😃 ... show more

  • High Quality Good Air Compressor
Style: Compressor
I've had a few air compressors over the years and used them for car repairs, furniture building, upholstery, household projects, etc. The Dewalt 6 gal 165 psi air compressor is a well-built, high quality, machine that will fulfill almost any need for the homeowner or contractor doing smaller projects. Actually, I could see a contractor using this compressor in the field when they need the compressor to be closer and smaller. I tested this compressor right out of the box. Since I was testing and needed a new compressor hose, I used a new hose to fill tires with a gauged tire inflation tool. Plus, I calibrated my compressor before use. When using this compressor with the gauge, it maintained consistent inflation pressure for quite a few minutes before kicking on. Plus, testing with different nailers, it performed well. One thing about this compressor is that it is not as loud as other compressors the same size and type, but it is still not quiet. Deal with it. Wear hearing protection. But, it is still relatively quieter than other models. I'm glad a spent a few more bucks. I got what I needed and it works well. Remember to calibrate your compressor! As always, I test products thoroughly before adding any review to Amazon. ... show more
