How should I add a tank to this DeWalt compressor?

DeWalt pancake compressor

DeWalt pancake compressor

I have this Dewalt 165PSI air compressor. It has 2 outgoing connectors. Can I hook a tank to one of those. Or should it be connected to the safety release valve? That valve is in the front but underneath the gauges. Kinda hard to get to. You can barely see it in the picture on Amazon.com.


Do I need to take off the connector on the secondary tank and install a Tee connector to it?

Does it just screw off and on? So I can just use a wrench to put the tee on?

Thank you.

Pressure switch adjustment
by: Bill

In order to change the cut in pressure setting from the factory it requires changing the settings in the pressure switch.

Before undertaking that, can I ask how come you want the cut in dropped from 110 PSI to 50 PSI?

Sure, you can plumb your secondary tank from one of the outlet couplers.

Re this: should it be connected to the safety release valve? - Definitely NOT.
