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.
