It certainly looks the goods Ern.

Nice price too.

It's a pity all these "big" compressors weigh so much, unavoidable I suppose.

Thanks for the link, it's gone into my Futures list.

cheers

Hi Ern,
It certainly looks "the goods". I was impressed with the specifications.
However, as Stephen said. It is really way to heavy to be transported around the country. I think it weighs as much as two cartons of beer. Given that fact, i think i would rather sit back and enjoy a cold beer while my "SLOW" old compressor does the work.
Cheers Spydor & Robyn

Spydor, I think if it was mounted inside the through boot on the van somehow, that would be a good thing. Hard wired to a power supply. That would mean it would not need to be hefted about.

Maybe even in a small alloy box on the drawbar.

I note that, apparently, it does not come with a hose. It is an accessory.

It's certainly far cheaper than the ARB twin pump with similar specs, and probably better value for money than the Bushranger brand.

I'm certainly keeping it stored for future reference.

There is a real benefit in having an air receiver and a pressure regulator.
By setting the regulator to the desired tyre pressue you can set it and forget it. When the compressor turns off with the pressure switch the tyre is done.

I have a single cylinder BlueTongue and assembled the bits and pieces using a small ex fire extinguisher aluminium tank as the air receiver. It resides in a wood box.

I would not have bothered if the Tradetools job had been available.

A reliable air compressor is essential when in the boonies............or anywhere.
