Cool On Board Air ??

So I have researched the options for OBA, and it seems that the best solution is to go with the York Compressors and the accompanying hardware; however, I have not noticed any discussion of the following:

What if you took an inverter and installed a small compressor like the one available at Harbor Freight.

http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=47407

It has the following specs.

I would think this could air you up pretty quick.

Does anyone have any experience with this option??

Thanks

Ive heard good things about York on other forums. I personally run the MasterFlow air pump that connects to your battery. Used it multiple times with no issues, and its plenty fast. Even blows up my air mattress when we go camping like its nothing I would love to have OBA like that york though if I had the money. When I did my research on OBA, that was what was recommended to me.

So what does plenty fast look like?? 3--5--10--30 minutes a tire!

if you dont have the money I would get the $70 air pump it does pretty good
not as fast as the york but 10-20 min for 4 35x12.50x15 tires not to bad for a cheap pump

The link mr4x4 posted is just another rebadged master flow compressor. It goes by another name too, cant remember it though. And its a little quicker than 4 mins a tire for my 31s, assuming we are talking flat.

I think this one looks pretty good for the $$. It's kinda middle of the road. Not a York setup, but better than the Master Flow.

Costo has the Master flow for $39.95. It fills my 33's from 10lbs to 32 lbs in about 4 minutes each. I've used it for the last year and have had no problems with it.

X2, it works fine. I will get a Power Tank type set up later and the Master Flow would make a good back-up unit then.

That looks like a cool install. Nice pictures. What is #5. And where did you get the oil thing.

i have an ARB HD compressor with a 1.75 gallon air tank.
airing up a 35x12.5x15 tire from 14 to 28 psi needs 1.5 - 2 minutes. for all for i need less than 10 minutes.

I got a York compressor at the junkyard out of a volvo. Bought the mounting bracket from Kilby interprises along with some other things.Getting the compressor from salvage can save you some $$$.$$ and I still have room for my factory a/c.
