Eric, do you know if the max air is a piston or diaphragm pump and if spare parts are easily obtainable ?

Max air, or it's copy are piston air pumps. No spares available as far as i know. Only diaphragm pump i know of (12V) is Blue Tongue from Opposite Lock.

I have "copy" of the Max air. Did the test on my 4 tyres 2 days ago. I took 2min 10sec for each tyre from 18 to 45psi. for all four. That is my test. It did get a bit hot, but than again they all do (40C outside temp)
No sign of struggle. I am very interested in test that you talking about and the claims you make. Can you tell us more?
My source still maintains it is one and the same compressor just rebadged and with different fittings.

I don't think Bushranger claims about Max air being different can be beleived.

gotta agree on asking max airs opinion there Eric?

like asking ford if the maverick was better than the patrol (bar the price and carby?)

independant seems a good query , so who to see for independant advice apart from someone at the factory?

but how do we finf out which factory?

DOH

I am only going on what Bush ranger in Sydney told me yesterday.
There is a coment he made yesterday that I have to investigate now .
On the phone yesterday he mentioned that they were looking for the factory that was making these compressors for copy right reasons . Yes someone on this forum had a link with the company details .

I have to look into this one a little further guys . Another concern I have is the 5 year warranty against the 1 yr HHHmmmm I will have to make some more calls

Eric, ask the Bushranger where are they getting the compressors from?
They are definetly not making compressors in Australia themselves.
Only ARB does.

The Bushranger Maxair's are made in China... (says so on the box)...
Same factory as the (ahem) "copies" ???? According to Erics' contact (Bushranger), No... But they are "looking for" the factory making the "copies"... Shouldn't be hard to find....

Call me a sceptic, but methinks that what we have here is a case of Bushranger (ARB?) trying to protect their OBSCENE profit margin...

IMO, even the (ahem) "copies" on ebay are selling for W-A-Y more than they should, & I never cease to be amazed that people keep bidding them up.. It's quite obvious that the seller has a good supply...
(No doubt purchased by the container load for $45.00 ea.)....

Eric,

speaking of warranty.
How is the warranty going to work with one invoice, but many individuals.

Just a thought!

cheers

Legally, you do not need a receipt for a warranty / refund on a defective product.

Surely you do as you have to take it back to the shop you bought it from to receice warranty. No store will take it back without a receipt. Plus without receipt how do you verify it's date of purchase. Spent all my working life doing warranty repairs and proof of purchase or date of manufacture is always needed, for minor appliance ie compressor, a receipt would almost certainly be needed.
