I just bought this pup at Lowe's for $130....120V and up to 135 PSI. Small, 20#, comes with attached hose for tires and seperate hose to run tools. I carry a gen so no big deal.

Air ompressor

I just returned from Home Depot where I purchased this compressor.

Porter-Cable 6 gal. 150 psi Portable Air Compressor-C2002 - The Home Depot

While I was attempting to purchase the 3 gallon unit of about $100, not in stock, I did not have time to wait and asked if I could get a discount on the above, retail 149.99. After some discussion i received a significant discount which gave me the compressor immediately, and I spent only a few dollars more than if I would have had to ship the smaller one to my home.

It works excellently, pumping up the spare tire on my new Serenity from the 50 lbs/in sq, I found in the spare, up to the 70 lbs/in sq I like to have in a spare tire to allow for some drift in storage.

At 2.6 SCFM @ 90 PSI, this really works and weighs in at only 30 lbs, something even an old lady can handle.....LOL...

Ok, so a few questions as I am in the market:

1) can these 12v options all run off our trailer batteries with truck off? ANd if not, they can with the truck on? The specs on some say truck must be on, but not sure if it would need to reach truck battery...then I would struggle I think to reach my trailer tires on my 30 foot trailer?

2) As far as AC vs. DC.....I want to be able to operate off the grid, and I do not at this point always travel with my generator...I do have an inverter, but doubt its 1000w will do the job? Also, the DC lets me more easily use it on vehicles as well I would guess.

3) I guess these small ones for airing tires cannot be used to winterize? Wont matter for me much I guess though cause I do the pink stuff....

4) Does the Viair units have a better warranty? Good service?

5) I think that 88P viair unit looks to be the right price and specs for me unless there is something about it I am missing?

6) these 12v offerings...do they require maintenance? some mention oiling them or something?

I am eye balling the viair 88P currently

I picked this one up today. On sale for $39 minus my 20% coupon. It is very compact and light weight.

3 gal. 1/3 HP 100 PSI Oilless Pancake Air Compressor

$39 with your coupon or 20% off $39? Did you get it at a store?

Yes, picked it up at the local HF here in Biloxi. I got a coupon for $39 out of a magazine and also had a 20% off coupon that they excepted.

I have a Viair 400P-RV. I run it off of the truck and they suggest do it with the motor running. Works great and has enough length and attachments that I have helped another WBBI member inflate a totally flat tire in about 3 minutes. Expensive but built like a tank.

I just cannot see my buying the 400 units - as far as I can tell you are buying some different accessories and a higher rate of inflation - as well as an auto off feature once pressurized

I wonder if build quality of the 400 unit vs 88 is really different?

Good choice. I carry something similar. Ten tires makes it worthwhile. A few added accessories to use as a point blower can clean out wheel well cavities, not just interior crevices, as well.

Per Michelin, IIRC, I can keep my TT tires overinflated by ten percent when in storage. The compressor makes that easy to accomplish. Etc.

You got a great deal on that. They are very strict over at the store here in Mobile and wouldn't allow the use of 2 coupons.

I have a Husky 110vac compressor, but I'd like something a little more compact and easier to get in and out of the truck.

I have had that happen over here also. Seems the employees have a bit of leeway as to if they take them or not. Sometimes they will even scan the coupons and hand it back to be used again.

I just picked this one up at local northern tool store (new location near my house) - they gave me 20 bucks off 80 dollar price

It's stats appear a bit better than the 88p viair and they promised if I did not like it in upcoming month I can return and any failure defect within 2 years they will accept a return in store - manager there is a really nice guy

I'll give update later after I try it out

2.54 CFM so it puts out pretty good amount

I almost bought a pancake type for 80 bucks from there but I don't want AC I think

That's basically the one I had and posted several comments about in this thread - loved it, until I killed it (or it died on its own - based on the failure that occurred, I can't see how I would have caused it). I still kind of want to replace it.
