DEWALT INTRODUCES its new heavy-duty, 5.5-hp, gas, wheeled portable compressor (D55273). The pump offers increased air delivery and maximum pressure, allowing more users to work from the same compressor. The compressor's forced-air cooling system extends pump life, and a roll cage protects all components from job-site abuse.

The D55273 has a cast-iron oil-lube pump that produces 10.3 standard cubic feet/minute at 100 psi and a 10.5-gal. tank with 150 max psi tank pressure. It also has a handle and two 12-in. semi-pneumatic tires for mobility.

Price: $999. Contact DeWalt, Dept. FIN, 626 Hanover Pike, Hampstead, MD 21074, 800/433-9258, visit or, or circle 196.
