    Full of mud and water
    this compressor arrived on time and looked good on the outside. It arrived about half full of oil and the oil was clean. this surprised me because no equipment is supposed to be shipped with oil in it. I went thru the break-in proicedure which included opening the drain valves on the tanks to prevent the compressor from pressuring up during the initila 20 minute break-in cycle. The unbelievable part is that when i opened the valve on the lower tank about a cup of water ran out followed by a half cup of MUD! I dont even want to know what happened to this compressor that caused it to need refurbishing. I was at a loss for words as to how a devise could be considered ready for sale in this condition. I spent a couple hours cleaning it up and observing the ooperation and performance. it runs fine and puts out lots of air but im not going to use it to provide air for my good tools lest they get damaged if any of that muck gets blown out with the air. I would recommend the product but would not recommend a refurbished one from CPO.

    Dewalt 1.1 Compressor
    I use my Dewalt 1.1 compressor for just about everything from odd jobs at home to different types of contracting. I think that the recovery time is great it works excellent. Some people complain about the loudness of the compressors but so far I've never found a quite one. It's not that loud. The only complaint I have about the compressor is that it is a little on the heavy side. Other than that I don't have any complaints about this product.

    Excellent unit
    I bought this as a replacement for my cheesy pancake compressor and it is a massive improvement. It is much quieter, which was the main thing I was looking for, and provides plenty of air for the tasks I use it for (paint spraying primarily).

    Quality Compressor, Great Price, Perfect for Garage needs !
    Bought this reconditioned compressor for use in my garage. It looks and operates just like a new unit! I do Auto Repairs and Woodworking, and can't say enough about how happy I am with this purchase.

    Used this with my impact gun for rotating tires on my car, adding air to bike and car tires, running my nail guns for cabinet construction, etc...

    As others have commented, it's a luggable, due to its solid construction. But I just put in on a moving dolly and roll it around in my garage.

    I looked at many compressors over several days and believe this unit is one of the better compressors available in this size and capacity. CPO has made me a happy customer once again.

    DeWalt products rock!
    I have used this type of oil lubed compressor with HVLP paint sprayers, siphon feed sprayers, no other compressor maintains the CFM as well as this quiet unit. The dual tanks are a must.

    poor shipping
    1st comment..No warning label on compressor to check the oil! Would be nice if CPO could add a warning to the power cord. A small bottle of oil would be nice too! Now I have to go get oil before I can use it. Brochure says only use Dewalt oil ... so guessing go to Lowes or ???? for oil. Not user friendly. Guess I should know this but was cautious and opened the directions and saved the compressor.

    awesome compressor
    20 years ago I bought an emglo compressor exactly like this one for our carpenter shop at work, its been plugged in and running ever since. Used mostly to power air nailers and blow guns, we've never had any problems. For my home shop I bought cheaper brand cmopressors since I only use it ocasionally. Well I'm on my third compressor at home only this time I bought this unit because of the EMGLO name. This unit that was made for Dewalt is exactly like the one I bought 20 years ago, same exact design. It was spotless out of the box just like new, could never tell it was a Factory Recon. Runs perfect and much quieter that the others I had at home.

    New Vs. Reconditioned

    What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

    Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
    • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
    • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
    • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
