Freight Orders

Freight deliveries require a delivery time be scheduled and someone must be present at the time of delivery to inspect and sign for the merchandise. A representative from the freight carrier will call the phone number entered at checkout to schedule the delivery.

Liftgate Service

For freight deliveries, you have the option of adding a liftgate to your delivery. A liftgate is the device that lowers a product from the truck to ground level.

CPO recommends adding liftgate service for freight deliveries exceeding 100 lbs if you do not have a loading dock or fork lift at the delivery address. Additional charges may apply. The liftgate option will be presented during the checkout process.

Please note that liftgate service only ensures the product is removed from the truck. We recommend you have the additional help of two to four people to move the product to its desired location because drivers are not required to assist.

Requesting liftgate service after ordering may result in additional charges and delays.

I would buy this product again
This product is used in my farm shop and out in the field. It is portable and very low noise when it runs.

So far so good.
I use in the compressor in a home-based shop for leather, vinyl and plastic repair. Mostly I'm using it drive HVLP guns. I can turn it on, let it reach full pressure, and then turn it off. It's capacity then lets me complete most jobs without it ever running again. It can easily handle near non-stop use with a 1.4 or 2.0 tip gun.

Only minor issue ... I read the on-line information thinking the unit would work with 120 or 240. So, I assumed they're would be a conversion kit or instructions to switch from one to the other. I wanted to use 240. I've got a dedicated circuit in my shop so there would have been no worries about a blown breaker, etc. Since it came set up for 120 and without instructions to convert to 240, I have to watch running it and too many other things at once.

DeWALT DXCMLA1983054 Electric Air Compressor
First modification was to change to Megaflow Coupler.

Actual Performance Data:
0 to 45psi @ 1:30
0 to 90psi @ 3:10
0 to 125psi @ 4:55
100 to 155 @ 2:40 (approx cycle time)

My father's 30 year old Craftsman 3.0HP 30 gallon is about 45 seconds faster in a 0 to 155psi race. 779 rpm slow speed helps noise levels, reliability, high duty cycle, etc. Drain petcock is difficult to reach.

Senior citizen wanting a reliable compressor,,, this fits the bill
I live in Texas so I paid no sales tax... saved 8% on that alone. First one I ordered arrived on UPS,,, and the box was so tore up,,, the driver allowed me to plug it in to see if it worked... It didn't,,, and it had a broken shroud.. and I think pulley. We refused acceptance and put it back on the truck and sent it back... I called CPO,, and they were great about it... I also contacted the manufacture (Not DeWalt),,,, they were wonderful. CPO waited until I got my money put back on my credit card (Thanks) and Dan ordered me one which arrived in about 8 days... The manufacturer and CPO really worked well together... It was a bit low on oil, and I broke it in for 30 plus minutes, afterwords I added 4 oz of synthetic Oil (Half way up the sight glass) and ran it to its max and it stopped at 150#... Great... Now about that damn air dran on the bottom of the tank.... Its very hard to get to,,, I have already bought ad air drain kit,, cost $20.00 and it was a strain putting it on... just not much space... I gotta wonder why in the dickins DeWalt (A quality outfit) didn't have them put on during manufacturing,,, so simple,,, It may have cost them a extra few dollars,,, but what a feature for the buyer. Its a heavy unit (190 lbs) and for a old guy a pain in the back. i would think their customer care unit would insist that they include the air drain,,, at least as a option,,,,, All in all,,, it was a great purchase from CPO (Really fair price @ $532.00 price match) and great customer service... the manufacturer was wonderful,,, 3 emails and great followup.... finally UPS did a wonderful job... Great Drivers that went out of their way to make the delivery... KUDO's to all....
