    Default Portable air compressor

    I need to replace my old compressor but do not know what to look for. I am going on a trip and will need to deflate and inflate my tyres for the different terrain we will be driving on. Please help

    160L/min compressor available from Outdoor Warehouse for about R1300.00 Leisure Quip. Red in colour.

    I believe you get the same thing ( different name and paint job ) from Midas and Autozone for about R 750 - R 850

    Thanks I will have a look. My old one is a 200l/min jobbie but the pipe is perished and it gets hot when I use it to inflate one tyre. It was one of those cheapies that plugs directly into a cigarette lighter socket.

    if it does not come with battery clamps then dont buy it. those cheap ones that use the cigarette lighter never last.
    i have used the twin head one that we sell for more than 7 years now and you will battle to beat it in performance. its a true 110 l/p/m

    Wayne, I see you also sell a single cylinder compressor. Would you recommend it for occasional use or will it be better to spend a little more on the bigger model?

    Jip, this is what I have. It works well and comes with sturdy battery clamps.

    Carel, I'm sure you meant 20L/min.

    Nico jammer ek het skeef gekyk. Dit is 'n "Good Hope" 200 psi 14 kg/cm3 air compressor. Nou moet ek eers die conversion factor boekie gaan soek.

    There is only one pump on the market at the moment that is worth buying and that is the one is Sandboarder's post. And they come in many colours and brands but it is the same item. It's been discussed on the forum A LOT.
    The performance of portable pumps took a big leap in efficiency when they brought out this model. older pumps don't come close.
    As for Tony's old TruckAir. Ha ha ha. I bought one of those in 1994. POS ......but at the time it was billed as the be all and end all but times have changed

    I must have got lucky, Spike - my TruckAir, bought about 15 years ago, is still going strong, never misses a beat, and as I said, has inflated literally hundreds of tyres and rubber ducks. And it is plenty fast enough for my needs.

    I have one of these. Removed the pesky battery clamps (plastic covers and all in the motor compartment) and fitted a BH plug.
    Works great. Now just to add a BH Plug to the front of my Disco as well.

    Agree with Deon, have the same one. First fitted a Hella plug but promptly melted it, now connected to a Brad Harrison, works like a dream.

    When my ARB jobbie packs up I'll also buy myself one of those xxxx brand 160l/m compressors. But for now I can't fault my ARB one.

    Nice, affordable & capable compressor to have.

    Just be aware that it draws a lot of current (30+ Amp), so leave the car's engine running when using it. And don't use Hella plugs.

    Today I went and bought myself the Moto Quip 160L/min, I hope they built it better than their spelling and specs on the box...

    Is your one the 160L/min (the box states 72L/min)?

    Where did you buy (price)?

    Yes, first pic is from the 72L/min box on the shelf.
    Makro promotion - R1200, only 1 left on shelf (maybe more left in storage)

    I hope they still have some here in Gauteng's Makros as I will have a look on Saturday. Saw a similar one at Adendorff's for R1295.
