I have the 9500 PowerPlant and the air compressor is just short of amazing. It is really fast and very convenient. Iíve been wheeling for many years now and have had several different compressors in that time from cheapoís to powerful high dollar setups with tank and the PowerPlant beats them all. No wiring, plumbing, custom mounts or hardware to install either.

Of course there are still even faster ways to air up your tires but the PowerPlant just keeps on trucking, no co2 tanks to run empty or refill either.

OK I know im digging up an old thread but I got the chance to time the filling of my 35's from 10 to 32 PSI last weekend.
Took 2 minutes for each tire so a grand total of 10 minutes counting the time to get the hose and air chuck out and put them back.

i have a 2 gal tank in the back of my jeep with my York... yeah the compressor kicks in quick but it also fills the tank in the time it takes to move from one tire to the next. My OBA fills my 35s from 6-27 PSI in 30 seconds...

IMO if you want OBA get a york setup if you can.. its not cheap but do it once and do it right and it will work forever.
