VIAIR 85P Portable
The VIAIR 85P is a smaller portable compressor that plugs into your
accessory power port to fill passenger car tires up to 225/60R18. (Requires
a 15-amp power circuit).
VIAIR 70P Portable Compressor (P/N 00073)
The 70P Portable Compressor from VIAIR is the perfect tool for inflating
compact and mid-size car tires.
Featuring a 150 PSI Pressure Gauge, 3pc. Inflation Tips Kit, Accessory
Power Plug, and a Deluxe Carry Bag, this air compressor is capable of
inflating 225/65/R18 tires or lower.
1. Plug the accessory power plug into your vehicle's power outlet and start
the engine to provide charging voltage.
2. Remove the valve stem cap, attach the end of the air hose to the tire
valve stem and secure it by tightening the twist-on chuck.
3. Power on the compressor by pushing the ON switch on the front of the
compressor. The tire will now inflate. Make sure you don't over-inflate
the tire past its recommended pressure, as doing so can damage your tire
and may cause serious bodily injury.
4. When the pressure gauge indicates the desired pressure, switch the unit
OFF and remove the air hose from the tire valve stem.
5. Finally, place the cap back on the tire valve stem and unplug the power
cord from the outlet.
VIAIR's 70P Portable Compressor makes tire inflation easy and affordable to
help ensure your vehicle is in optimal running condition.

Air Compressor Purchasing Tips
ARB's Matt Frost explains what to look for when purchasing an air
compressor for your vehicle. To view the full range of ARB air compressors,
Superflow MV90 verses MV50 Air Compressor comparison
This video is a side by side comparison used to illustrate the performance
differences between the SuperFlow MV90 and MV50 12-volt Portable Air
Compressors. Because of additional hoses and fittings required for the
test, actual performance of the units when used individually is better than
what you see here. The test truck is an 2008 F250 Super Duty Diesel with
275-70-R15 Tires. Both units come with a nylon carry bag and coil air
hoses. Newer models are equipped with type M air fittings making it easy
to use your own hoses. Caution -- These compressors are designed to
provide continues flow of air. Never use a hose set-up that dead ends the
flow of air.

Proper break in of Harbor Freight central pneumatic 29 gallon 2hp 150psi air compressor model 68127
Well, santa was good to me this year. This is my new harbor freight
central pneumatic air compressor. This is what the manual concludes as
proper break in procedures, you are supposed to check the compressor head
bolts before initial run and after the 10 minute no load pump break in and
again every 500 hours. They are supposed to be torqued at 27nm (just about
20ft lb.). I always change the oil in chinese equipment even before the
first start up because I don't like their quality of oil and there is
usually some metal remnants in the oil if they test run at the factory and
just leftover from casting parts. I then put in good quality oil, run it
once or twice and change it again to make sure I get all the metal
particles out of the case. I shot this over a few days because my health
condition really really really limits me for doing anything longer than 15
(or less) minutes at a time. Hopefully that will change very soon. As you
can see I got this at christmas and I just got done shooting and uploading
video. This looks to be a decent compressor, but won't really be able to
test it out until after my surgery and recovery, which won't be till about
march at the earliest. I don't work for harbor freight nor central
pneumatic, just following the manual and my own take on some things. I've
had great success with some chinese manufactured tools and equipment, and
I've had some great disasters as well. It's best to look at the item you
are considering in the store, and do lots of online extensive research
before a major purchase. If you plan on using the item heavily or every
day, I would buy a used name brand tool thats easy to get parts for or fab
parts for before I bought a chinese one. This will see use about once a
week or even longer intervals, so it should be ok. Also, I would not buy
ANY chinese oil less compressor for two reasons, they wake the dead and
they typically fail apart within the first few uses if not shorter. This
is a Central Pneumatic ( Distributed by Harbor Freight ) 2hp 150psi 29
gallon 115v single phase two piston pump single stage vertial air
compressor part number 68127 I will also upload a second video very shorty
showing tank fill time from 0 psi to full 150 psi I wish this model had
pneumatic tires, would make moving it around much easier, I may have to
adapt it to use a set in the future.
Onboard Air Systems
Onboard Air Delivery Systems can supply a constant flow which is not only
great for tyre inflation and re-seating a tyre bead. But can run pneumatic
(airbag) suspension, air lockers (regulate pressure to lockers to maintain
150psi in the tank for other uses), air tools, Exhaust jacks and inflating equipment such as
boats and inflatable tents. Onboard air is fantastic for use in both
recreational and commercial environments. Bushranger Onboard Air systems
are powered by Viair Compressors, all tanks are tested and meet Australian
