I have been very pleased with this compressor. It was a good step up from the red 33 gal oiless compressor I had. This Dewalt is much quieter more powerful and recovers quickly. Very pleased so far.

Works great.
The only reason for the 4 star rating is that I had to get two. The first one leaked around a weld but the second one works perfectly

Good compressor with a few tweaks
I needed a replacement compressor as my old one had pinhole leaks in the bottom of the tank. This compressor attracted me due to the brand, tank and motor size and separate motor and compressor units. Down the road I could replace either the motor or compressor if needed unlike direct drive units. For the bad side of this unit I found that it did not like cold weather. In Wisconsin, at this time, the temperature is dropping. This unit is in an unheated garage with the temperature in the 20's. I use it for an adjacent heated woodworking shop. Upon the recommended startup, with the tank drain open, it seemed to start and run ok. However, after closing the drain and using it, the motor seemed to struggle. I found it would trip the motor reset and also the 20 amp circuit breaker. Even with the tank drain open the motor would struggle to get going. Replacing the circuit breaker made no difference. Since the motor can also be 220 volts, I rewired the motor per the decal. I also had to add an additional 220 volt outlet from my welder circuit. So with 50 feet of 10/2 grounded cable, an additional 220 volt outlet and an adapter for the end of the compressor cord it starts and runs great. If this unit is in a higher temperature setting maybe there would be no problem. Also, the drain on the bottom of the tank is a problem. It is too close to the ground and not easily accessible. I added a 90 degree fitting with a hose and gate valve attached to the axle. It makes it much easier to drain. I like the size of the unit and feel it was a good choice.

can this be used with a sand blaster?
A shopper on Jun 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't try it. This unit only provides 5.3 CFM at 90 psi. A small sand blaster nozzle usually requires 4 to 8 CFM at 100 psi. Most people use the medium nozzle that requires 10 to 15 CFM.
