Hi All,

Thanks heaps

My Compressor I have in my truck .. the only "good" one I came across. Pumps up my 6 vehicle tires from 22psi to 55/60 psi in less than 10 minutes and thats including the time to remove and refit the valve caps.
It requires 100Amp though. I have a stainless steel airtank on board and
also use it for my airbags and air hitch as well as the airhorns and airtools, especially the rattle gun when I have to change tires (8bolts for the front
and 16 for one rear wheel is a pain :)))...
Don't confuse this with anything looking like this on ebay.. look at the specs first :)) ... You asked for the best .. so in my book it is ..
Important is the 100% duty cycle at 150psi so it does not cut out when you half done or when you use the compressed air to clean your vehicle ..
pretty much everything else is a toy ...

have fun

It is an American Site isn't it !? :)
So it is fair to assume that it is US$
By the way the freight is around $90 US or at least used to be ..
It is a bargain considering the duty cycle... I have tried different
compressors and none of them did my tires in one go or when
removing a tire I did not have enough air pressure to power the
rattle gun properly.
have fun ]

Thanks Derek
I just had a look at that thread.
I also just had a look at your ABR Sidewinder and read the article on the test comparison. Its a good price on your product. Are you having a stand at the Brisbane show this weekend?

Regards
Evan

Hi Evan

Yes we are very happy with the results of our compressors.

No we don't display at shows anymore as we find it too hectic and it disrupts normal business.

Regards

Derek

I've had a lot of use out of my ARB one over the last 4 years and it is still going strong without missing a beat.
