Anyone know if there is a fixed regulator that has 100psi output? I'm looking for a way to run air tools without buying the expensive adjustable regulators. I figure 100psi would be safe for tools yet still pretty quick for airing up tires. Anyone have some links?

Thanks

I have a friend of mine who hooked me up with a spare CO2 regulator. It needed a high pressure gauge, to which I just removed it and plugged the hole. So I have an adjustable regulator and low pressure gauge.

I also have three 20# CO2 cylinders, but they are all out of date. Last time I checked, a local gas supply shop wanted $45 to recertify the tank, and then more to fill it.

CO2 is handy to have though.... When a buddy of mine put a tree branch through his sidewall, we used my CO2 (When I had some gas left) setup and his impact to change the tire in the middle of the woods.

Looking for peoples experience on longevity of the CO2 charge in the tank. I would be filling my 37/12.5 tires from 8 to approximately 20 psi. Best guess on how many times I could use it?

If you look up the Powertank website, I believe they have a chart with the info you are looking for.

Based on my being able to fill my 35x12.50 tires from 7-8 to 25 psi four times with a little left over in a 10 lb. tank, I'd guess probably three times.

Thank you Jerry. That was what I was looking for. I have been told the OffRoad Air OA-REG150 Hyper-Flo regulator has, or is about to be discontinued. Has anyone else heard the same?

Is a 10# tank what most people use? I can get the 10# Poly Performance CO2 Kit for $219 delivered.

Yes, 10 lbs. is the standard size used for this purpose. You can do better than $219 if you buy the tank, regulator, and other misc. parts separately but that's not a bad price for one that is ready to go.

Can these set-ups run air tools fine? Such as a cut off wheel or impact?

Yep but that'd be an expensive use of them. For limited use, it'd run an impact tool fine on the trail but something like a cutoff wheel or grinder uses too much air (C02) for it to last all that long. I wouldn't waste my C02 running air tools.

$49.62 Poly Performance CO2 regulator. $81.99 10# CO2 tank from http://www.aquariumplants.com/. $48.37 Kidde Safety RB16 Running Board Bracket for 20# SKU:408-292474 WEIGHT:15.00 lbs(s) (yes the 10# tank fits) from ReStockit.com. $20.00 misc. parts. Grand total = $199.98. Of course that does not include the incorrect $23.86 running board bracket that I bought in my first attempt (thought the price was to good to be true). Always did want a 10 pound extinguisher with a 5" diameter in my truck. I saved $20.00 by ordering the parts individually instead of buying the $219.00 Poly Performance CO2 package. All the prices are delivered and were the best I could find at the time I ordered.

Anyone know where to get these fittings. http://www.8-lug.com/tech/1103_8l_po.../photo_06.html I am sure ARB must buy them from somebody. Disregard = I found them. PowerTank has them.

Would there be any difference in parts if you were to use nitrogen? Not sure of the price difference, just trying to do my homework before I pull the trigger on this project.
