New Dewalt 55168 Compressor Defective?

Just bought a new Dewalt 200PSI 15 gal compressor (5.4 CFM @ 90PSI) to replace my older Husky 8 gal 125PSI (3.7 CFM @ 90PSI) because the older one would not undo many tightened lug nuts. Even with a high torque (580) wrench the new one does not do any better than the older one. Might the new one be somehow defective, or am I expecting too much from the Dewalt? If the Dewalt doesn't do any better than the Husky, then I probably should take it back.
