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

Great Performance!
I've only had my DeWalt 5-HP 80-Gallon Two-Stage Air Compressor for a couple weeks. I didn't appreciate that in order to maintain the warranty, I had to hire a "licensed Electrician" to hook it up.

The compressor is a little louder than I thought it would be. The drain valve is kinda cheap so I replaced it with a 90 degree street fitting and a 1/4" ball valve. As another review stated it could have come with a 3/4" pipe plug for the side hook up. Another minor cost and... more

Great Product !
I did a LOT of research before buying this DeWalt compressor. For the money and quality you can't beat it.

I opted to purchase the Maintenance Kit which I highly recommend as it doubles your warranty out to 4 years....one of the best warranties in the business.

The compressor itself does everything as advertised. This is a great product and would recommend it to anyone. And at about 500 lbs. it is not a cheesey flimsy unit ! Heavy metal all around.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Price, High Quality, Durable
Cons: Took a litlle longer than expected to ship.

Bad Warranty From Dewalt
I ordered the -Stage DeWALT DXCMV5048055, 5-HP 80-Gallon Two Air Compressor IN 06/2016. After about six months in service the compressor stopped working. I called the DeWALT 1-888-895-4549 for service to repair the compressor. After speaking with the customer representative I was told that it could be either a switch or motor. I was then given two different phone numbers (919-878-0357 DeWALT Factory Store & 919 856-0050 J&S Tool Repair) in my area for repairs, one was a DeWALT service... more

Danny,
I'm sorry you didn't get the service you expected from DeWalt's Customer Service line. The phone number you used is also the number we list.

I checked our records and I didn't see where you bought your compressor from us (Air Compressors Direct). We are allowed to contact our rep at DeWalt and ask them to step in when one of our customers isn't getting the service they expect- perhaps you may want to contact the place you purchased your compressor so they can do the same for you.

In the business world today larger companies acquire smaller brands to widen their market and reduce costs. This is true for almost every compressor brand on the market. DeWalt is currently a subsidiary of Stanley Black & Decker. Here's a link to the Wiki history of DeWalt.

The Factory Warranty is through DeWalt, although to keep the cost of your compressor down and offer the most service to the most customers it's more efficient to combine the service networks of all their brands.

Replacement For My 25 Year Old Single Stage
I needed a 2 stage 80 gal. compressor to run my pressure blaster that my old compressor couldn't keep up with. I bought the Dewalt because of the high CFM ratings and excellent price.

So far it has performed flawlessly. It keeps up with my pressure blaster with no problems.

The only thing I changed was the drain valve on the bottom of the tank. It's a small light duty knob. I replaced it with a ball valve which works well.

The built in control panel is a great feature.

Great Compressor .... Shipping Not So Great
Ordered the DeWalt 80 Gallon 5 HP compressor because of:

1) Price
2) Rated CFM
3) Quality of Compressor Pump (it is actually made by Kellogg Compressor if you look at parts list)

The compressor is great and you can see it is well put together and quality job done (no missing or loose parts anywhere, even the shipping box and pallet are very well designed and put together).

The compressor is somewhat nosier than others of same class,not because of the compressor pump (rotates at around... more

Dan,
I'm happy to hear the air compressor is performing well.

I checked your file, and I see that the credit to your account to cover the lift gate refund and the additional time and trouble has already been processed. I didn't see where you had submitted a receipt for any additional costs- and I'm sorry, but without a receipt they would not be reimbursed.

We are working with the folks at ABF to improve service in your area, based on your comments. However, It is up to the trucking company to decide where and when they can safely make a delivery. I'm sorry that ABF wouldn't bring their semi down your residential street.

We appreciate your business, and apologize again for the inconvenience you experienced.

Dan,
Dan I am sorry to hear about your shipping experience, sometimes it can be hard to control a third party freight company. I would like to clarify that the pump is in fact not made by Kellog. We manufacture our own pumps as it is much easier to control the quality if it is made in house. This pump actually rotates around 860 rpm. We believe the lower the RPM the longer the life.

Make sure you are buying the maintenance kit with this unit. If bought with the compressor this can extend the warranty out to 4 years! well worth the price.

Pleased
Overall, this is the best compressor for the money in this category. Shipping was decently quick and the entire process was easy.

Only complaint was the two really weak and nearly broken pallets the compressor came on. Trying to get that heavy thing off the pallets without toppling the compressor or killing myself was tough. I'd buy again from here though.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Price
Cons: Packaging

Did a lot of reasearch before the purchase. I own a 2-cycle racing outboard engine business, and use die grinders everyday. I relocated my shop. The new owner wanted my old standby compressor left with the sale of the shop so I went shopping for a high CFM compressor the DeWalt fit the bill, and the A rating with the great price sold me.

Ordered it, and within 2 weeks it arrived in great shape, set in place. Wired it up and she fired right up. In the morning, I will go through the first 30... more
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Durable, Easy To Use, High Quality

This compressor is everything I was hoping for. It came when promised, looking good, and works great. I was concerned that it might be loud, but it's noticeably quieter than the smaller unit that it is replacing.

The drain petcock is difficult, I will be changing it over to a gate valve... it is a little loud but I am putting it outside the shop.

Joel,
You may find that using anti-vibration pads under the tank's feet will help quiet things down. If it's mounted in a corner, adding sound reducing materials (foam, ceiling tiles, etc.) will help, too.

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.
