DEWALT D55146 Review
Quietest Air Compressor For Garage ?
Is this the quietest air compressor for garage use? Well we have tested this and it is ever so quiet. The Dewalt D55146 air compressor is a durable 4.5 Gallon portable compressor with wheels. It has an oil-free pump and can function with a pressure of 200 PSI with 5.2 SCFM@90PSI. This translates to a lot of power in a portable maintenance free air compressor.
The manufacturer claims that this unit can provide enough pressure to support 3 framing nailers or two roofing nailers at the same time!!
As you may know, many air compressors are noisy with decibel levels reaching over 90. You might also find that most of the portable pumps aren’t as powerful as you’d like. The D55146 is one of the quietest air compressors you can find with a decibel level of only 78dba. It’s also one of the most powerful portable units on the market and constructed to withstand dirty job site environments.
Super silent compressor
Not only is this a super silent compressor it’s also easy to transport. The ease of use and portability are other features that make the dewalt stand out from its competitors. Although weighing over 80 pounds, the collapsible handle and no-flat tires allow this powerful air compressor to be easily transported from place to place without any problems.
