Does anyone have experience with this compressor from Dewalt?

It is model Dewalt DPC10QTC in Europe and I believe DEWALT DWFP55130 in the US.

Primary use will be trim work, and fencing with a collared nailer; and very occasional small scale framing work where it doesn’t warrant pulling out the 100 litre.

I have one.  It was in for service in its first year for a leak.  Not a big deal, but since it was under warranty, I let the service center deal with it.  It’s relatively light and quiet, which I’m thankful for.  There are reviews indicating the pump is cheaply made and not really serviceable.  I didn’t see these before I got mine, and mine sees light usage, so it is what it is. 

I also have a Makita MAC700.  It’s equally quiet, lower psi tank.  Built well, oil lubed.  Other than a rusted coupler and regulator, it’s been great and I would get another in a heartbeat.  My only complaint is the weight.  It’s not fun dragging it around.

The Makita MAC3200 is a great compressor. Had mine 3 years and it replaced a Rigid compressor same size. My shop is small 16x24 and everytime the Rigid kicked I would nearly jump through the ceiling. I can be standing 5 ft from my talking with a friend in front of MAC and when it kicks doesn't interrupt the conversation!
