After watching one of these air compressors in action , I desided i had to have one . Garry pumped up 3 vehicles before I pumped up 2 tyres . I can purchase some of these at a Large discount , I am already just under the $300.00 mark , if I get more intrest and do a bulk buy ,I will be eble to get them even cheaper .

Any takers ???

I was quite impressed with these Kia airs - did a great job.
Did you know that ARB have bought out Bushranger!

As I understand it the ones on Ebay are almost exact Chinese copies ... well, whether they are almost exact remains to be seen .... certainly look identical though.

Max Air and the Ebay "copy" are one and the same unit. They are imported and sold under few different brand names. Same compressors from the same factory.

Trucky, I thought you already had a compressor under your seat. Do you collect these things. What do you want another for, backup ?

TJM also sell their own version of the Max Air - exactly the same as the Bushranger expect for different stickers and a 1 year warranty as apposed to the Bushranagers 5.

RRP is $300 but could probably pick it up for $250 - $275 by haggling.

The Max Air (or copy of) is an excellent pump. 3 times faster than the ARB or Blue Tongue Compressors.

Regards

Dave

You are right about the speed, I find my Max Air (genuine) outstanding. I paid mega bucks for it RRP $ 390.00 in Perth paid $ 360.00 don't care because it is great.

The only pump faster (only 5 lpm) on the general market is the twin toungue at nearly twice the price.

Yes. they are not bad at all.

they are all good to a point, but does $800 do more than $300 one?

Michael,

We've got the Big Red - used it on the weekend for the first time and it did six tyres in quite a short amount of time without any problems. Eric and Nick borrowed it to do three of the tyres on the Prado.

OK so you guys are all in a hurry. Do these compressors have proven reliability like the ARB, and no I don't want to hear about how your mates ARB crapped itself.
