Editor's Review:

by Mark Edmundson

review date: January 1, 2007

Judging by this new offering from DeWalt, shop compressors are getting smaller, quieter, and more efficient. These tools handle the workload of finish nailing without the bulk and noise often associated with larger compressors, and I was pleasantly surprised at how well it performed.

The DeWalt Emglo (model D55141) weighs 30 lbs. and has easy-to-read line and tank gauges. The tank fills in around 1 minute and 20 seconds, but recharges quickly in around 15 seconds. Unlike some competing compressors, the DeWalt has two quick-connect fittings to accommodate two finish nailers. And the danger of hose recoil is eliminated due to a rubber gasket inside the quick connect.

With a full tank, this compressor was able to drive about 15, 1-1/4-in. finish nails or 22, 1-in. brad nails before recharging.
