DeWalt Air Compressors

 

The DeWalt D55168 air compressor is an excellent choice for a vertical portable workshop compressor which is why we gave it an 8.6 overall rating. With an airflow of 5.0 CFM @ 90 PSI, a max PSI of 200, and a 15 gallon tank it allows you to handle almost any task you can ask of it including filling up tires, blowing off parts, or running an impact wrench. About the only thing that this compressor struggles with is handling air tools like a die grinder, air sander or rotary grinder that require a very large volume of air.

The D55168’s vertical design means that its footprint is kept small while not sacrificing performance. At 92 pounds it is still pretty heavy and can be a little awkward to wheel around. It is a little bit more quiet than most other compressors at 78 decibels, but make no mistake it is still loud.

We would recommend this air compressor.

We really like the DeWalt D55146 Air Compressor which is why we give it an 8.4 overall rating. With an airflow of 5.2 CFM @ 90 PSI, a tank capacity of 4.5 gallons, and a max PSI of 200 this unit performs at a very high level. It can handle 2 framing nailers with ease. This compressor will charge up to 200 PSI, then after use when it reaches 160 PSI the motor will kick on and cycle it back up to 200 PSI. That means that your high rated framing nailers will always work without the risk of not putting the nail completely into the wood.

It is relatively expensive at around $300-$350, but this model is worth it. The only real complaint from users seems to be the drain design. You need to drain the tank to get the water out to prevent premature tank failure, and the drain just doesn’t quite work without propping the compressor at just the right angle to get all the moisture out.

We like this DeWalt model a lot better than the similar DeWalt D55154 and recommend it.

The DeWalt D55154 is a solid wheeled dolly-style air compressor that we give an overall rating of 7.0. Its best used as a framing / finishing compressor. It has an airflow of 4 CFM @ 90 PSI and a 4 gallon capacity tank. Although its max PSI is not very high at just 125 PSI, which limits some nailers.

The D55154 is also built for the job site. It has 2 couplers so you can run two nailing guns at the same time. It also features a unique wheeled dolly-style and a sturdy cast-iron construction, complete with a roll-cage frame that protects the pump and motor from being damaged on the job. It also comes with a top-load panel with positioning holes which allows you to load up to 100 pounds on to the deck of this model for transport. The motor is oil lubricated to improve durability as well.

At around $330, this air compressor is more expensive than similar wheeled portable models and the performance doesn’t quite match up to those other models of comparable expense.

We would recommend this compressor for use on a job site where your tools require a max PSI lower than 105.
