Could anyone give me any feedback on this compressor as the people behind the counter know nothing about it.
Does it have thermal protection and how does it stack up against other
compressors in its price range. It's currently reduced from $129.00. I think it's called a cyclone.

Have you got a URL for this compressor?
Would have to be a dud from Repco (Rip Every Poor Customer Off) with their 40% minimum GP profit margin.
Go to Marlows and get the Grunter delivered to your door for $68.50

This is the identical power unit that some 4WD outlets have for $249.00.
Marlows are offering free freight for Christmas (December only).

Bought a compressor from super cheap auto and it looks the same as the Repco one (I think I paid $129 also).
Super Cheap also had the next model down from the one I bought that looked similar to the Grunter (although I've only seen a picture of the Grunter as we have no Marlows in Sydney) but was not 'Heavy Duty' (smaller motor) and cost about $70.
I think thay are all from the same manufacturer, including the 'Yellowbelly' that oziexplorer was talking about.....
The one I bought has a thermal cutout and so far has worked quite well although I don't do a lot of sand driving.
Comes in a nice bag, and has a guage that can be used during deflation as well.
I think they are great for the price.

It is the one and the same as sold by supercheap varying in price , $149/$129 on special,,the slightly cheaper version has gauge mounted on unit.is actualy smaller motored ,,neither has thermal cut out, will do four 4x4 tyres not as fast as some other units available, but at that price can buy 2 and still have beer money compared to blue tongues ect, have had mine for 18mths,used at least 20 times including reseating bead,,

georg,

the compressor I have, Super Works model TY2007H, says that it does have a auto reset thermal cutout in the instructions and in the specs. Although I haven't actually had it to a stage where it had it cut in yet, I assume that it is there.

The Cyclone I was looking at Repco is a 37.5L/min unit with 15 amp current draw. The larger Super Cheap is a 55L/min with 23 amp current draw. Otherwise they look identical to a lot of others on the market, including the BushRanger Pro-Air at about $250 and are a lot cheaper. The SuperCheap does have thermal cut out and I guess the Cyclone one does too. Personally, I'll pay the extra $30 and go for the extra volume of the Super Cheap unit.

Also there is the Tornado at Repco, looks the same as the Grunter at Marlows, the 35L/min unit at Super Cheap and the Hurricane 3 . All about the $70 mark except for the Hurricane which is closer to $300.

Right , i just got the Cyclone. I chopped power lead from 4m to 1 m , fitted blade fuse in line and placed the whole lot into small tool box. I tested the Cyclone on my Dunlop A1 A/T 265 75 R16 from 18 to 32psi.
It did it in 2.5min at 40C. I could not beleive it. Seriously.

I have a Super Cheap compressor. I too installed it into a small metal tool box, but it vibrates badly and is too loud in the box. Did you have this problem?

No. I didn't bolt the compressor to the box. Just placed it inside on it's rubber mounts. Runs quieter than my mate's ARB unit. Does anyone know what is the status of availability of this compressors. Is this one of offer or a steady supply.
