Dewalt’s History

It all started back in 1922, when Raymond DeWalt, then superintendent of Seabrook Farms, designed his first woodworking machine. Two years later, the company started making its emblematic DeWalt Wonder-Worker – a woodworking machine that could be configured in nine different ways.

During the years of WW II, DeWalt expanded its power tools production to meet the soaring demands of the U.S. Defense Industry.

I tried hard to find out when exactly the mighty power tool manufacturer produced its first-ever air compressors, but I could not lock on any conclusive results.

However, it is known for a fact that in the year 2000, DEWALT purchases Momentum Laser Inc. and the Emglo Compressor Company.

Frequently Asked Questions 

In this section, I am going to answer in great detail some of the most common questions regarding the air compressors by DeWalt.

Who Makes DeWalt air compressors?

To begin with, let me mention here that DeWalt is part of the Black & Decker family, which speaks loads about their manufacturing potential. The Dewalt company manufactures all of its air compressors in the United States. 

Does DeWalt make a cordless air compressor?

Yes! DCC2560T1 FLEXVOLT (reviewed above) is one such model. Other options include the DCC020IB 20V Max Inflator, powered by three sources – 20v max battery, 12V D.C., or 110V A.C.

Final Words on DeWalt Air Compressors

We do hope that this article has provided you with in-depth information on the wide variety of air compressors manufactured by DeWalt. Now, you can pick the model that meets your specific compressed air demands.

Reviewed above are two industry-class vertical units, which are not very common in general. Yet, their design saves a lot of space in the workshop.

Also, the models suitable for nail guns do a great job of powering paint spraying pistol and vice versa. However, we would not recommend using portable cordless models for painting.
