Am interested to know who got one and how u found it works.

I have an ARB that whilst its a few years old it hasnt been used hardly at all.

It takes approx 12mins to pump up a 275 x70 x 16 BFG A/T tyre.

Im told it should take less than 4 mins but dont think its true.

How long does the Aldi one take to do the same.

Hiya Graham

I'd have to guess they would be about right ! The standard Bridgestone HWY tyre @ r15 that come on the Toyota Hilux when pumped from 18psi to 40 psi only took about a minute...By i hav the latest ARB Compressor..
Havnt tried it on my MTZ's yet but will if you want me too...There dimentions are 31x10.5xR15....I can drop to 20 psi and time it for ya...



Cheers

Would be good thanks I took the valve out and let it go right down to zero then connected compressor and allowing for checking pressure twice it took over 12 mins for it to get from 0 -40psi

Yeah i seen them today, they pump out 72 litres per minute which is the same as my sca from supercheap, have only used it once and took approx 5 mins to pump from 20psi to 40, 2 weeks after buying it i seen a typhoon for $199 which is about what i paid for mine and it pumps out 150 litres per minute (thats over double what mine pumps out)......dont ya just love it when that happens. If ya wanna check them out go to www.4wd1.com.au.

Hi Graham,

i am going to keep it short and sweet-DONT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY. they are a piece of chit.bought one,died,got another,couldnt inflate a 285 past 25 psi,my mate had similar dramas as well as popping fuses when warm.bought a bush pig? and it is brilliant,2 cylinder 85 ltr/min,pumps the 285s up in no time and barely warms up.for an extra $30 on top of that aldi crap,well worth it. cheers Paul

That doesnt surprise me TD100, ive never bought a product from aldi that wasnt edible because everyone i know who has, and everyone they know that has have reported the same outcome as yours, i laughed when i seen the 9500lb winch for $499.

That surprises me about the winches as when they had the last lot one of the guys on the 4wd action forum dismantled one.
He reckoned it ws identical to one of the name brands. Dont know about the compressors though thats why I asked
Thanks

Hi Graham, i havent heard any reports on the winches but i wouldnt trust them, although it is interesting what the 4wd action dude reported, they may be ok as long as they came with a half decent warranty, and they might be ideal for someone who does very little winching.

Hi All,

Some things to look at with "CHEAP" and some "Brand" Compressors. This applies to the 72LPM single and 150LPM and twins. which are a 40mm cylinder.

1. We've had tests done on a couple of the ones we sell, and 72l/min "free to Air" actually pushes about 30 - 33L/pmin under load.

2. 150L/min "free to air" actually push about 45l/min under load, so not really twice as fast. (Boyle's law)

3. From the outside they all look the same, ask the question, and see if the seller is prepared to pull one apart and show you the guts.

4. Is it an Alloy cylinder or SS sleeve (SS it lasts longer)

5 Is the switch switching a relay or the main current directly. If there's no relay then normally there cant be a thermal cut-out.

6. Does it have a thermal cut-out (we've pulled some apart that the label says thermal cut out but inside there's not)

7. No Thermal cut-out, means the unit will keep on running, and yep it will pump up 4 big arxx tyres without stopping, BUT one day it will stop, and where will you be? hopefully not out at the end of a long beach, or the CSR! cut-out is needed to protect the motor.

8. Can you get spares, does the guy selling them have spares?

If you want a serious compressor go to a 60mm compressor.

From my experience, a single 72l/min will take 4 -6 mins on a 205/70/16 and a twin will take 3 to 4 mins.

the 60mm unit will do it 2 to 3 mins, and run basically continuously.

Hope that helps, if you would like to know more drop me an email.
