    Default 'Monster 4x4' 12V compressor

    On the spur of the moment I bought this compressor.

    It has no name, no country of origin, nothing!
    Comes in a neat carry-bag.

    I'll test it over the weekend (going into the Transkei).

    Anybody seen it or have info on it?

    How much? Saw something similar at Midas, also double cylinder for R700 IIRC. The single cylinder one that they and most other places have, is a copy of the Bushranger Maxair compressor, but I'm not sure if this is a copy of something else.

    I bought it from East London Bolt & Nut @ R720-00 (incl)

    The parts look the same as the single cylinder model they sell.

    Hi Guys. Don't contribute much as I mostly don't have much to say.

    I've been using one of these compressors here in Saudi Arabia for more than a year now and I find it well worth the money. Three of my friends also use them and we've never had problems. It probably takes about a minute to air up a 265/70/16 from one bar to two. (estimated time)

    The only thing to watch out for is the gauge on the compressor reads higher than the actual tyre pressure. I suspect the airflow is too high for the valve and the restriction in the valve gives a false reading. Always double check pressures.
