this isnt a question about what air compressor is better than the other.just more a case of of value for money.
i am interested in what type of compressors people are using to do a test.
if we could get people from here to do a couple of tests we could find out the good the bad and the ugly.
i know difrent temps and the way they are wired will make difference but just interested in average results.
if we could do a pump up test from flat to 35psi.
and a test from 15 to 35psi all with the valve in.
then give the results with compressor type/tyre size and time taken.
now i know some compressors might spit the dummy(over heat) after two or tree tyres so we can do it a couple of ways.
1 pump up 1 tyre from flat to 35psi and time it.(puncture repair)
2 pump up 4 tyres from 15 to 35psi and time it.(on sand and road again)
3 pump up 1 tyre from 15 to 35 psi and time it .(on sand and road again)
if theres any other ideas without getting to technical or something i forgot to ask just post it and lets see how they all go.

Try a common sized tyre as a reference, too. Pointless comparing a 205/70R15 with a 37" bogger.

One of the mags (i think it was 4WD monthly) did a comparo test on this subject but it was over 12 months ago. After reading this I purchased mine (Big Red) because it had a good rep and a great price tag, plus discount for cash. So far, Ive not been able to get mine to overheat despite trying really hard.

Going to fit 4 Wrangler MTR's today, 235x85R16's, so might use the Blue Tongue and let you know. Just had 31mm of rain here so might get a chance to test their ability. Hooroo...
