This is an excellent small shop / home air compressor. However, with that said, it's important to understand that it does have some limitations and is not designed to replace larger air compressors. With this review, I will try to give a thorough rundown and address both the pros and cons.
I grew up using your typical Craftsman 5HP 30 gallon air compressor. My dad bought it for the garage and I made use of it all through my teenage years of working on cars and fabricating. It required oil and was pretty loud. So, when I bought my own house, one of the first things on the list for the garage was my own air compressor. I almost bought a Craftsman unit from Sears, but after reading the terrible reviews about the model(s) I was considering, I decided to keep shopping. Based on the reviews here on amazon, it seems the quality of the recent Craftsman air compressors isn't what it used to be.
After deciding not to purchase a craftsman unit, I checked into several...
We've had our DeWalt D55168 for about three weeks now and love it. It dose everything well and it may be the perfect home or small business work shop compressor. It is easy to move around and you can use a 12 gage extension cord if needed to power it. However there are a couple of things to know before you buy one. One is the drain valve is to close to the floor to work properly. So we built a ramp about one inch tall for the D55168 to set on and that solved that little annoyance. Seems that DeWalt would just put about one inch taller wheels on this compressor and that would fix this little problem too? The next thing is there is a fifteen minute break-in with the drain valve open. We would not have known this if we wouldn't have read the instruction manual first. The third thing is, 'quite' it is 'Not' it may be about 25% less than our old Porter Cable 4 gallon air compressor? There is plenty of sound left in this motor to have no chance of hearing your fm radio when it's...
Use caution. I just sent the second one back to Amazon. Both units were obviously damaged prior to shipment, as you could see where some other party received the same non-functional unit prior to me, and returned it in the re-taped box 3 or 4 times. I used the identical compressor of a friend, and knew this is just what I needed. Unfortunate for me that Amazon is dealing with a supplier such as this one that I had to go through. Definitely buy a Dewalt compressor, but think about an alternate source. Amazon was willing to take both units back, but having the frustration and downtime to return both units make this transaction undesirable.
