I'm running a compressed air system which is way lighter and more compact then the c02 systems. I can run 3 4500psi tanks for the same space 1 10# tank takes up, what are the beneifits you see with c02? IMO I dont see any.

not to mention for the price or a 10# c02 tank im buying 2 72ci 4500psi air tanks

72ci (cubic inch)? I think you mean cubic feet. And a single 72 cubic foot tank is larger/longer than a 10 lb C02 tank so you can't run 2-3 4500 psi 72 cubic foot tanks in the same space as a 10 lb. C02 tank. If you really meant cubic inch, you won't get many tire refills from that... even 3 of them... and not nearly as many as a 10 lb. C02 tank can fill.

Getting Savvy...

When you have a choice, buy American.

The tank was off E-Bay. The air line and chuck from Harbor Freight. the regulator from Poly Performance http://www.polyperformance.com/shop/...tor-p-297.html Its 40.00 plus shipping which was kinda high but it was still the cheapest I found. hope that helps and by the way it works great.

Jerry, can you fix the OP's links please? None of them work when clicked on. The replies are hit and miss if they work or not.

My quick disconnect from HF doesn't seal very well when I am airing my tires so I am going to look into getting one from Lowe's tomorrow in the hopes of finding one that will work better.

My 2 ('er 5) cents on this:
1. I prefer an adjustable regulator, rather than fixed. Sometimes you are filling up little stuff around the house instead of just your big meats. Don't want to blow up (explode) baby's bouncy ball.
2. If you do use it for air tools, most call for 90 psi max.
3. Power Tank products may be a little spendy, but all of their stuff is top quality. Compare a quick disconnect fitting from them, to one from HF. It's a world of difference, with all due deference to our Chinese friends.
4. I have a Power Tank 10# system with the fancy schmancy lighted digital gauge, and I like it A LOT. They also have a high volume regulator for you guys with the 44s.
5. Great Write-Up. Thanks for all your hard work, MagicMtnDan.

co2 reg

Got a 20# system works great. Problem is after doing 4 or more fat tires the reg flow rate slows drastically. Obviously the thing is getting super cold. Switched regs and the other one does the same thing.
In the welding industry and other operations that require flow for a considerable time they all use regulator heaters. I would like to try one, but they are all 110.vac
Does anyone have a source for a 12v reg heater?
Thanks, PaulW

Got bored and started building a mount for one of my extra Homebrew Co2 tanks. Still needs some work/ paint/ rubber vibration padding. Have an extra regator that I'll set up with Air chuck

Good job, thank you! I'm scrapping the air compressor idea and building a 15lb tank setup!

I recommend a 10 pound plus a 5 pound. Or, if you prefer two 10 pound tanks since they are easier to find. You only need another tank since you switch the regulator over. That way I never run out. And, I can use it completely without being "out of air" somewhere.

One is strapped to the floor, the other in a stand up bracket.

PS: You don't need a gauge or adjustable regulator. Just a fixed pressure 150 psi regulator.

Good to know. I'll do 2 10 lb tanks. The guage is uneccessary because it doesn't read accurately?
