DEWALT Listened to Users

In designing the DWFP55130 compressor DEWALT focused on three main categories that pros found the most important;

  1. Weight
  2. Size
  3. Noise

Weight and Size

Weighing in at 37 pounds, the DEWALT 2.5 Gallon Ultimate Trim Compressor is lightweight and at 14 inches wide it takes up very little landscape in the truck.
