Dewalt D55155 compressor

Does anyone have experience with the Dewalt D55155 compressor, particularly with framing and roofing nailers? Home Depot is selling this unit for $319.

I think it's overpriced. At 300 bucks, you'd think you can't ever kill the thing, but I see more reconditioned units sold than new ones.

Now to answer your question It's basically a hot dog compressor with a roll cage. It'll support any nail gun or even two, but expect it to have to come up to pressure every 11 shots or so (maybe a few more with a roof gun). So, depending on how heavy you are using it, it may have to run non-stop. If you are working alone - you'll be fine, but a crew can really overwork it. Look into it's duty cycle, if you plan heavy usage you may want to get something larger.
