Q: Does the compressor come on a pallet that it is bolted down on? If we buy the service kit does it extend the whole compressor warranty for 4 years or just the pump?
by Joe from New York on May 20, 2016

A: Yes, this compressor is shipped on a pallet.
DeWalt warrants the compressor for two years. Buying the maintenance kit with the compressor extends the pump's Factory Warranty from 2 years to 4 years

Should Have Bought 10 Years Ago
All the 302 $400 compressors I have blown up over the years would've paid for six of these and they were no comparison as far as airflow and capacity.

I hardly hear it run and when it does it fills up amazingly quick! The shipping was very quick. It only took three days.

It did come without the screw in air filter though. I called the number in the manual and they overnighted one to me no questions asked.

Took two months to received my compressor and many phone calls trying to figure out where it was. Found out that the first one was damaged setting in a warehouse somewhere. No one doing anything about returning it back to the factory.

After finally receiving the compressor and turning it on, the belt for the compressor would not stay on the pulley. Tryed to adjust the tension on the motor but found that the two did not line up with each other. Moved the motor over and redrilled new holes... more

Robert,
I'm sorry that you are unhappy with the progress of your order. Our records show that you placed your order on Friday, 12/4 for a unit that we post as shipping in 12-14 business days (Monday thru Friday, excluding holidays). That puts the ship-out window at 12/22 to 12/24.

We sent you an email on 12/10 saying your order had shipped and including the tracking number that R&L Freight would be using, and a link to their website so you could track your order.

R&L Freight shows they delivered the unit on 1/6 but you refused it because it was damaged. You notified us about refusing the shipment on 1/11, and we created a replacement order for you the same day. Since the unit had also gone on sale during that time, we also credited your account for the price difference.

We asked DeWalt to expedite shipment of the replacement and they did a great job getting it off their dock right away. We emailed you the tracking number and link to R&L on 1/13 and it was delivered to you on 1/21.

I spoke with the folks at DeWalt, and they are not aware of any re-drilling that needs to be done to their units. This compressor is covered by a 2 year Factory Warranty, and their manual says to call them at 1-888-895-4549 about any issues with their product. This ensures that you will benefit from the entire warranty period.

We appreciate your business and apologize for any inconvenience.

Robert,
I am sorry to hear that your DeWalt 5 Hp compressor showed up in a damaged state. I can assure you that we run every compressor before they leave our factory. If there was an alignment issue at our factory the belts would have jumped track then. I can only imagine the compressor may have been abused during the shipment. Was there any other visible damage to the unit?

We appreciate your candid review and will be making an inquiry as to how this happened. You may be receiving a call in the near future to find out how we can make this right.

Thank you for the business.
If you are not happy, We are not happy.

Received In Great Condition
I received the compressor earlier in June but did not do a hook up until 6-14-16. My electrician came over and did the wiring and upgraded the breaker to an appropriate size.

While waiting for the electrical hook up I took the time to run copper pipes with air outlets over my work bench and a second one on the other side of the garage near my wood lathe. I also have a 100' air hose on a self retracting spool in the center of the shop overhead. That gives me a total of 5 outlets including... more

Dewalt Makes A Great Product
Delivery was on time and the crate was excellent.

Hooked up easy, The only thing is the switch to turn on the compressor broke when taking it of to hook up the power. I just need a replacement. I went DeWalt's parts site and i could not find the part number.

Other than that its been great.

Update to a previous review: full restoration shop that this compressor is used in. Air tools run all day no delay whatsoever.

Blasting 2 straight hours at a time in a cabinet and outside great volume hardly any lag as with an older compressor I had previously. Won't be disappointed with the DeWalt in any way. Regulated front output connections is a bonus.

Great volume to paint booth kicks on once for a full body prime. I have in a separate room and with the door closed I still listen... more

Thomas,
We are looking at changing the drain to a ball valve. I have large hands and have a hard time getting them under the compressor. Thanks for the feedback. We came out with an autodrain kit that comes with everything you need to install and operate. Drains automatically!

Great Dewalt Compressor
Bought the 80 gallon two stage DeWalt Compressor for my ranch shop and paint booth. I already have a 60 gallon compressor for the machine shop but wanted a two stage for the paint booth due to the volume of air produced and the decrease in moisture generated.

Great compressor, well made, and looks to be a real beast but a bit noisy.

Have no issues with Air Compressors Direct buying process, but the shipping company is absolutely horrible (R & L Freight Line). Scheduled the... more

I am so sorry you had so much aggravation with your delivery! We do a lot of business with R&L, and they usually provide better service than you received.

Please be assured we will bring your comments to R&L's attention and work with them to improve service in your area.

Joseph,
Thanks for the positive review on the compressor. We are very proud of this product and are glad you are happy with it! Did you by chance purchase the Maintenance Kit for this compressor? It has all the oil filters and belts to maintain this unit for a year. and it extends the warranty. Peace of mind for a great price.

model # 165-0320

By the way I believe the maintenance kit ships UPS.

Thanks again!

Significant Upgrade
Operation: Tank bottom drain difficult to operate and brass material poses a potential galvanic corrosion problem with steel tank.

Replaced drain with stainless valve. Followed break-in procedure and purchased start-up kit. Compressor is significant upgrade over old 3HP unit. Recommend.

Shipping: belt guard, box, and pallet damaged. Pallet repair unsafe. Driver skills questionable, and had language difficulty communicating with helper. All safety issues.

Clarence,
I'm sorry you had issues communicating with your delivery driver, and that your compressor arrived with shipping damage. We will work with our contacts at R&L to improve service in your area.

Please be aware that any changes you make to your unit could affect your Factory Warranty. We would advise any alterations take place after the Factory Warranty period expires.

For those reading this review, we'd like to re-emphasize the advisory we send with your shipping confirmation, and that appears on our Returns Policy page under Damaged Products:
"Do not sign for damaged products. If your product arrives damaged, please (a) REFUSE DELIVERY and (b) Call Us Immediately so we can process the appropriate claims and coordinate an exchange for you."

We want to make sure your compressor arrives in good condition, ready to give you years of dependable service!

Great Compressor
I run a woodworking shop with two home-built CNC routers and needed an air source that would be able to keep up.

I did a lot of research and found the DeWalt 80 gallon air compressor. We brought it back in the shop, wired it, did the half hour break in period, and it's been a beast ever since.

The extra air ports in the front helps out tremendously when you need that quick air connection without having to string a hose clear across the shop. Plus, regulating the pressure on them is a... more
