Air compressor


Well, I have ordered a new TI. Nudge bar and spoties, tow bar, elec rustproved, paint protection , mats, driver weather shield, Tinted windows, 12months rego and on road costs for just under $40,000. Hope to pick it up late Nov.

Now I am after a good quality air compressor for the tyres (for those beach drives)any suggestions?

Re: Air compressor


There is an older thread about this here:

http://com1.runboard.com/baustralianxtrail.fmainchat.t102


I ended up with a Kmart $40 one. Wakes sleeping dogs two suburbs away when its in use, but my my estimations would pump up all 4 tyres from beach pressure to road pressure before the 15 minutes burn out time is up.

Re: Air compressor


I paid $200 for mine and the motor is probably at least twice the size of most cheap models.

It will pump up a tyre in about 2 minutes from beach pressure.

I also got some staun tyre deflators....they are sooooo good

We do a fair bit of 4wd, as we live in Far East Arnhem Land. I have purchased a larger fixed unit as I have found the cheaper units to to fail when you least expect it.

Re: Air compressor


 Due to the weather warming up and the beach beconing, I decided to buy a decent air compressor. After researching numerous other forums and magazines, I decided to go the 'Bushranger Power Air II'. This pump won the 4wd monthly best budget pump and for $90, with a 5 year warranty, you can't go wrong. Just tested it on the exy BFG's and it only took 2min 15sec to inflate the 225/70r16 tyres from 18psi up to 36psi. To get the pressure up to 28psi, which will get you off the beach and to your nearest servo, only took 1min 40sec.

 Details
BUSHRANGER POWER AIR II

 To make deflating the tyre easier, I have always used, and swear by the 'Staun' tyre deflators. Simply preset each (x4) device to a pressure, screw them on and they will deflate each tyre in about 5 minutes.
 Details:
STAUN

 In my beach kit, I also have my 3in1 tool, which deflates the tyres with the aid of a very accurate pressure gauge.

 There you go. An excellent beach driving kit for under $200. And it all fits in the tyre well.

Excellent choice Brett.

This is exactly the same compressor I picked-up from the 4WD Show (or was it the Motor Show Rich?) about a year or so ago and it lives in the back of my exy ever since.

Was the perfect companion in our camping emoticon

Re: Air compressor


Cuffs, we have the 4WD show the weekend after this one, might be able to get a bargain there.

Re: Air compressor


I also purchased the bushranger powerair 2. I'm very happy with it. Inflates tyres relatively quickly (full inflation in a few minutes), is pretty quiet and is continuously rated so it won't overheat before the job's done.

There may be faster compressors out there, but you'd do well to find one for under twice the price. Perfect for the occasional beach trip.

Re: Air compressor


Just trolling through and saw BillieWallys ARB pump install. Looks great....hidden and functional. emoticon
Anyone else tried this? The jack etc needs to go somewhere else I gather (correct compartment?)
The amount of "dirt work" we will be doing in next 50 years wont justify it, so an external pump will probably be more "economical"......but it looks awesome just the same! emoticon
