MV50 compressor or the mf-1050
 
I'm looking at buying a small portable compressor For trails. I have 31" tires but will some day be getting 35" and a lift has anyone used these?

I have the MV50...decent little compressor. I dont know how it compares to the MF1050 (your links just took me to pictures so I couldnt look at specs). But for 50-60 bucks you really cant beat it. On 31s itll only take you a few minutes to get everything aired up...probably somewhere around 10 minutes for 4 tires. On my 35s...its a bit slower. I would say it takes me 15-20 minutes to air up all 4 tires from around 8-10psi up to about 25 psi.

ok fixed the links, so would the extra 20 bucks be worth it to get the other one then?

I honestly dont see much of a difference. Hell, they use the same picture. The master flow doesnt list the CFM (which is what matters). The psi of the master flow is 150 vs 120 of the superflow...but PSI doesnt mean anything in this case. If it were me, and I was going off just those two links, I would go with the cheaper Super Flow probably (that link just had more info.) They both appear to have good reviews though. If I were you I would see if you could find the CFM of the master flow.

I personally have not had an issue with my MV50, and its a pretty quick compressor considering its size.

Well after some research they are the same compressor lol, I have no idea why they have 2 different ones on the web site.

They are the exact same thing made by the same company under several different brand names. Get the $50 one on Amazon.

I have the mv50. I'm still on stock 32" mt's on my jkur. I have had my little Chinese compressor for a yr and a half and after a run it stopped pumping air pressure. So I got on their website and discovered they have a 3 yr warranty. I sent them an email with them promptly replying with a possible reed valves failure and how to take it apart to inspect. I sent them a picture of the bad valves and my reply was a tracking number for new valves.

No fuss and great customer service!

The Reed valves are thin metal check valves for building pressure. It's a very simple design with a single piston. After about 18 months it had some gunk build up inside after using it 4-8 times a month.

It takes a few minutes to air up from 18 psi to 37 psi. It's about twice as long as a high dollar ARB or Vivair. So for the price it's perfect.
