For years air compressors have been among the biggest, bulkiest tools in any shop. And even if you bought a portable air compressor, there’s a good chance that it, too, was pretty unwieldy and difficult to move from one location to another. Thankfully, the folks at DeWalt have introduced a truly portable air compressor in their DeWalt D55141FNBN 16-Gauge Finish Nailer/18-Gauge Brad Nailer/Compressor Combo Kit. This particular air compressor kit gives you everything you need for most carpentry tasks, along with the very lightweight, yet powerful air compressor itself. It’s like an all-in-one kit for home carpentry and professional building and finishing projects.
How Light Can You Go?
It’s been pretty difficult for tool manufacturers to actually put together a portable, yet powerful air compressor that weighs less than 50 pounds. Amazingly enough, though, the compressor that comes with the DeWalt D55141FNBN Compressor Combo Kit weighs in at a relatively feather-light weight of just 30 pounds. With an air compressor that lightweight and that small, it’s not a problem to grab this air compressor, throw it in the trunk and then be off an running to take care of a flat tire or work on a project at a remote location.
