Works great
Works as it should. A little louder than I imagined it would be but works great. The hose that comes with it is great, very flexible.

Excellent product
I bought this a few days ago to replace my old porter cable pancake compressor. The compressor so far performs well with two nail guns being used at the same time. The only issue is with the feet. The compressor spins around when its placed on a concrete surface. The simply remedy was to set it in the rocks to prevent it from moving.

I love my pancake.
I use it at home and also take it to work everyday. I’ve had for more than 3 years now and it still works like the day I bought it. The two output lines to run multiple tools. The ease of keeping it clean. Great choice and really great price. Thank you Dewalt for making a good product, I hope that you continue making great tools that make my work easier. Weather at home or at my job.

Nice compressor, kept up with my demands
I bought this a few years ago, and finally decided to write a review.
Overall I've had pretty good luck with it. It worked well with my framing nailer while building a shed this summer, I'm not very fast with it, so a professional would probably drain it. Just don't expect it to keep up while using an air nozzle to blow off dust/debris. It's small, lightweight and easy to carry around.

There were two issues I had from the start:
1) there was a slow leak, but it would only lose about 1/4 of the tank pressure overnight. It was not an issue while using it. I finally tracked it down with the soapy water trick. The compression clamp under the gauge housing was leaking. I removed the clamp and used a small hose clamp. No more leaks. It's kept the same pressure for over a week.

2) The compressor walks/rotates when running. I don't have a solution for that yet. I saw another one running which did not walk, so I must assume something is off balance with mine.

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.
