on board air /viair

i am thinking about getting the viair 400c compressor. is any one familliar with this unit? i am also concidering attatching it to a tank (2.5 gal or so) does anyone have any input on this, and a diagram for how to wire it so it shuts off when max pressure is reached.

Your not asking for much, are you?

How is one companies product better than another companies product? Well, for the money, each company will be fairly similar. What you are paying for is the speed that the compressor works, the technology in that compressor, the wiring/hoses/development in that compressor .. will the 400c do the job for you? Maybe. Will it be too much? Never.

Have you thought about the JunkYard compressor? Cheap to setup and it does a fairly good job. For my tires, about 15 min per tire from flat without a tank in the middle.

In the ricer magazines they talk about 'baggin' a vehicle, well they use air tanks and compressors to lift and lower their vehicles .. there is some good tech in those about it that can be "setup" for 4-wheeling as well

Oasis has came out with a new one that uses a 24v compresser at 12 v's 4 wheel mag just did a good article on the set up, but honestly.. thats alot of $$$$

you can buy inverters & wire it in, then get a dewalt or craftsman < or your Fav compressor brand> & run it...
when i was roofing houses in Highschool, we used whats called a biscuit or flat compressor...high output, & a small unit

theres alot of options now days with OBA.... CO2, Engine mounted compressors, Portables

the best question to ask yourself.... how do you want to use it ?
resetting beads on tires? Maybe powertools? or just airing up your tires for street driving after a good day of wheeling?.... Now how quick do i want to wait to air up...20 Mins a tire,15 mins a tire, or have all 4 done in 20 mins & drinking a soda Bs'n with others while there still waiting... or helping them out, drinking a soda & still Bs'n
the reason i'm saying this, the more you want, the more it cost


What are you wanting to run ?
