WOOD magazine review

Quiet and oil free

Review Summary

For years I tolerated the noise made by my oil-free “pancake” air compressor because the only alternative was a heavier, oil-lube model that would require regular oil changes. But DeWalt’s DWFP55130 oil-free compressor runs at 72 decibels—about the same sound level as a drill press. Nice! This unit’s 2-1/2-gallon tank has a 200-psi rating, so at 90-psi hose pressure it delivers air as if it were much larger.
It takes only 90 seconds to fill the tank when empty, and 30 seconds to refill after kicking on during use. So it kept up easily with any nailer in my shop. The gauges are easy to read from a standing position, and the hose-pressure adjuster is simple and intuitive to operate. And when it comes time to drain the tank, the ball valve works smoothly without issues. For its small size (35 lbs), ease of carrying, ample air delivery, and low noise, I consider this an ideal woodworking shop compressor. —Tested by Jeff Mertz
