    Powerful, yet small compressor
    I purchased this mode six years ago. I use it for household automotive projects. It drives air tools reasonably well but is probably a bit too small for such usage. My unit has many hours of run-time and I've never had an issue with it. Regular oil changes and it runs as good as the day I purchased it.

    I have owned this compressor for about 4 years now and this beauty hasn’t skipped a beat. The motor filles the 2 tanks very quickly wich allows for quick use. I would definitely recommend a DeWalt compressor.

    Great service, terrible product
    I was hoping to use this product on an addition that my partner and I were working on. So we had three guys and three hoses ready for action. It was a little chilly the morning of our first try with this compressor(mid 30's), but nothing like what the winter will bring for our job sites in a normal year. It was unable to start well right off the bat, keep in mind that I did do a break-in period as recommended by the manufacturer the night before. It was quiet and it recovered quickly so we used it a little along with our older compressor to see if it would get broken in a bit? The next day I couldn't get it to run consistently with out popping it's onboard breaker/reset. UNUSABLE! This is the first disappointing product I have received from CPO, so I won't give up on them, but there is a risk in buying reconditioned products I guess.

    Good for the price.
    I did not need a large unit but wanted something that would supply enough air for small power tools, tire inflation, and air gun. Has done the job for me.

    This will get the job done!
    This recon tool arrived with a good deal of oil having leaked out via shipping, but after cleaning it up and adding a little oil, the compressor fired right up. I've used it for tires, nailing, and cleaning, and it works great. Great product at a good deal.

    Good Product
    A good compressor delivered very quickly. It took about an hour to get the unit operational. The black ground cable to the battery was disconnected. I had to track this down. Once that was fixed it started right away.

    Great Compressor
    I have been using my compressor every day for the first 3 days that I've had it and I really like it. It is easy to use and I have had no problems at all in running it. I was worried that it would be really loud after reading some other reviews, but it isn't any louder than other compressors I have used. I have also not had any issues with it tripping out. It runs great and I would recommend it.

    New Vs. Reconditioned

    What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

    Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
    • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
    • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
    • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
