The D55155 is overload protected, as well, and delivers 4-1/2 cfm at 100 psi while still drawing less than 15 amps.

Carrying the compressor is easy, too: the flat design lets the user tote the compressor comfortably like a suitcase.

DeWalt takes a classic to a new level, March 12, 2002
Reviewer: Michael S. Paulson
As a full time contractor working alone I am always on the lookout for tools that will make the job go faster and easier. Last yearI spent many months researching a replacement for my ailing Campbell-Hausfeld oilless compressor. Originally I figured the CH had a higher air output, needed no oil changes,would work on slopes and start in cold weather. ...After forking over the big bucks and putting it to work for DeWalt's 30 Day trial period I couldn't believe I'd gone so long without this compressor. The unit has loads of features and advantages.
1) First of all the Emglo name on the unit reassured me that I was getting a tool built by the industry leader with a great reputation for tough, dependable compressors. The first day on the job proved it with quick cycling times and ample air at all times. The unit just purrs and runs smoothly.
2) Portability. I do a lot of work in luxury high rises and I've often left the compressor at home rather than drag it down endless corridors. This unit carries like a briefcase (a 60 pound one) with an ergonomic handle and good balance. The unit's flat design makes it easy to bungee tie to a light weight luggage carrier ...It can carry the whole unit with hoses and nail guns. I can't overemphasize how much easier this makes my job. I've paid for the compressor already in labor savings by bringing it to every trim job.

3) Eye candy. Let's face it, this is a sexy looking unit. I've had othe craftsmen come over and ogle the compressor and ask questions about it, but mostly admiring it. Customers have commented on it, how quiet it is and how professional it looks.I am percieved as a serious craftsman based on my setup (along with my Senco SFN-40)which is good for referrals.

In short, this is a serious tool for the professional contractor with loads of power(delivered air), durability, great design and looks. DeWalt took a classic, the Emglo 790, and improved the power output layout and design. My only complaint is the air release lever, an otherwise solid unit mounted on the underside of the tank. The opening is too narrow for your hand and the sharp stream of air can actually cut your skin. In addition the compressor shoots out small chunks of ICE from the tank creating dangerous projectiles that will cut your hand or riccochet into your eye. Don't know why it does that but just beware and open the valve SLOWLY.
Finally, I have a compressor that won't roll around in the back of the truck knocking off gauges and connections as I drive through the city. Hats off to DeWalt and Emglo for a match that combines legendary durability with great design.

NOT for everyone !!, August 19, 2003
Reviewer: "propertybroker" (Palm Springs, CA USA) - See all my reviews
Be realistic and really think about your needs in a compressor - because this one is meant for low-volume work.
Pros:
Very well built with great fit and finish of every component.
Portable, the heft is managable for most tradesmen.
Easily satisfies demand for 1 framing nailer or 2 smaller guns.
Controls and drain valve are positioned well and work perfectly.

Cons:
Too loud for use in a customer occupied home - OK for garage or outside.

Factory set pressure valve set to kick on compressor at 100psi and turn off at 120psi - which means that any fair amount of use will cause this sucker to go on-off-on-off-on-off almost constantly!

Bottom Line: DO NOT get this if you need a generous supply of air (for blow nozzles, production cabinetry, house framing, paint sprayers, etc..)

Go ahead and get one if you need a portable, professional quality, low-volume air supply (for continuous finish nailing or occasional large gun use)

This would be the perfect tool for a handyman who needs occassional yet reliable air from house to house.

I'd have given it 5 stars - but the factory sealed presets for powering on and off are way to close!

I am a general contractor who needed a better compressor to do small framing jobs and finish jobs on site. I have had very good luck with it. It will run my Senco 41XP finish nailer with very few cycles and never fails to set a nail. When using it with my framing gun you just need to not be too agressive with your shots but it will push you plenty fast. We have used it for roofing and it does need nelp with two guns, but will run one no problem. My only complaint is the weight of the unit pushing and pulling it into the bed of my truck, I wish it had wheels. My warranty is out so I think I will add some. Mine was a reconditioned unit and I have never experienced any problems and I use it, the larger tank does need to be drained regularly though, overall good compressor.

Regulator Problems, November 3, 2005
Reviewer: Joseph Watson "jwneflim"

I have gone through 2 regulators all ready. A new one is on backorder. Do not buy this product if you intend to use it.

I'm pleased with it and I've actually used it; A LOT., October 28, 2005
Reviewer: Stephen Cavender - See all my reviews

I've had this for over a year now. Used it for brads, framing,
roofing, ratchet and just blowing off stuff. Works flawlessly. Quick pressure up from 0. A tad noisy, but what compressor isn't. I got it stuck in my shop under a fixed bench on the second shelf. 100 feet of hose to reach my driveway for rotating tires. This compressor drives 3+ inch nails no problem. Its so light I can pick it up with 1 hand. May not be the most powerful
in its size, but so what? I keep 2 lines connected all the time so I can use it for blowing off wood/sweeping the floor/dusting the shop/ or busting lugs on wheels, building frames, nailing up
trusses, installing subflooring, etc... etc.. But the kicker is I can pick it up an take it with me anywhere. Of course I have to mention the 1andonly dislike(thats the on/off-switch location). But that just me.
