Good air compressor?

Is this a decent compressor? Anybody have any experience with it? Thanks!

Yes.
But you can usually find them for $50-$60 elsewhere.
I got mine at Pep Boys. They're reasonably quick, reasonably durable, especially for the reasonable price.

Sounds like youíre reasonably sure. Sorry, just had too.

Just curious if youíve ever timed how long it actually takes to inflate a 32inch tire from say 20 psi, or there about, back to around 34-36 psi. Thanks.

Air Comp

It's to bad nothing new has been added to that site. I used thier reviews for decisions on my air compressor and deflaters. I want to see the Camp Chef reviews.

It's in the test.
I just got it last week to replace the craptastic thing I had from Tellico4X4 ---- which you had to hit sharply to get to run. Took about 8 or 9 minutes to air a 33" from 17 to 33 psi.

Youíre right. I guess I must have been blind for a brief time.
Sorry.
