DEWALT DCC2560T1 FlexVolt 60V Max 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor Kit Review

Dewalt Cordless Compressor

The DEWALT DCC2560T1 FlexVolt 60V Max 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor Kit gives users the option to go cordless without sacrificing performance.  The performance of the air compressor and capacity of the tank allow for uses in trim carpentry along with recreation use.  We put this air compressor through many tests to give you an idea if its performance will suit your needs.  Make sure to watch our YouTube video to see the testing.

No joke, the DEWALT FlexVolt 60V 2.5 Gallon Cordless Air Compressor performs as if it was a corded air compressor of similar size but offers all of the convenience and portability of cordless.  If you like to use small and lightweight pneumatic tools, this air compressor allows you to cut the power cord but keep the hose.  Runtime with the included FlexVolt 6.0Ah battery (really a 60-volt 2.0 Ah battery) was excellent and we believe it will run a full workday for many users on a single battery charge.  There is a gauge that lets you know the pressure in the tank next to, what DEWALT calls, a OneTurn Regulator that allows you to choose the PSI output with a dial.  Just like many new DEWALT tools, this air compressor is made in the USA with global materials.

2.5 Gallon Compressor

What each person expects out of a 2.5 gallon air compressor might be different, but this is a small compressor that is meant to work in small jobs.  This unit will not supply a framing crew, nor will it run an impact wrench with its 1.2 scfm output at 90 PSI.  Using this air compressor as it was designed to be used, for small nailers or to complete small jobs without a cord, it performs flawlessly.  The battery life is surprising and if you need more runtime, one can always upgrade to the DEWALT FlexVolt 9.0Ah battery.

We used this compressor with 18 and 16 gauge nails testing the 2.5 gallon air tank to see how many nails we could shoot without the compressor going into recovery mode.  We were able to shoot fifteen 18 gauge and ten 16 gauge nails before the compressor tank dipped below the 100 psi mark triggering the pump to turn on and return the tank to 135 PSI.

While you can use this air compressor for household use, including topping of automotive tires with air and filling up other items, the performance will still be limited by the size of the tank and the 1.2 scfm output.  This compressor will be happy to live and run every day on the jobsite or sit in the garage or trailer as a backup unit.  Having the option to cut the cord or have a compressor in a remote area is awesome and DEWALT designed this compressor to perform as if it was corded!
