I replaced a Porter Cable 6 gal pancake compressor with this DeWalt. It is much quieter, doesn't vibrate as much, has 165 PSI instead of 150, and has a 1/2 turn drain petcock instead of the leaking screw design on the Porter Cable. It seems to attain top air pressure faster also. I am pleased with it. Wish they used gloss yellow paint on the tank instead of flat.

Awesome mobile compressor
I bought this compressor about a year ago for a small home improvement job and have used it much more than I originally thought I would. This compressor is light and can be moved around easily, it’s not too loud during refill and is perfect for any job that requires pneumatic tools. I highly recommend this great product!

Initial evaluation: Needed to replace the coupler on one outlet because my hose had the female coupler instead of the compressor outlet. Nice feature is the duel fittings and may be handy working with two tools.
Very loud but that's not an issue. Will replace the hotdog unit I current have. Believe my motor burned out.

Not really good.
Most of my tools is DEWALT. About 85% of tool I have it. This is not Dewalt like 5 years a go.
This compressor I pick up from HD October 7 2016. Was not working every day Last week just not fill up a tank . I had Porter Cable before for 5 years. 5 years is good but 2 years NO. So now I have to buy new one.

All the compressor I`ll ever need
Received my new Dewalt pancake compressor yesterday. At 3:30 I turned it on and let it build up to 165 lbs. and turned it back off. At 10:30 last night it had dropped down to 157 lbs. At 9:30 this morning, it is still at 157 lbs., I`m very happy with that. Also I was very pleased at how quiet it is. Money well spent.

Manufacturing Defect, No Support
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.

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.
