    Default Does it overheat: Compressor 180 Litre Per Minute in Ammo Box

    Hi everyone, I recently became the owner of a 2010 Fortuner D4D 4x4 and would like to purchase a good air compressor for the vehicle.

    I saw this: https://4x4direct.co.za/tyre-care/92...110661683.html
    It is built into an ammo box and it looks quite decent. Anyone with experience with it as it seems like it might overheat inside the enclosure?

    Otherwise, any other air compressor recommendations?

    Thanks !

    FIL has one, pumped up a few tyres in succession without any overheating. It's a good solid pump. Just check the pipe fittings after use, you can almost weld with them, they get very hot.

    Each time I do business with 4x4 Direct, I get more respect for their "branded" products (and the service I get at Montana branch)
    Recently bought a set of spotlights - real value for money.

    I use that pump for 33's.
    I connect it to an Indeflate and pump up two tyres at once to around 2.4 Bar no problem.

    Wanted an ARB twin, was told to try this first. I cant complain.
