12 volt air pump.

Postby Titch » Tue Aug 17, 2010 5:06 pm

I need a Air pump, not one I need to replace everytime I pull it out to use it.
I do not want to fit it under the bonnet.
Something with grunt and able to pump 6 tyres.
Ideas warmly accepted.
Cheers.

What is bonnet?Trunk? or hood?
Well,have you considered a tire fill kit for automotive purpose (you know,those manufacturers are putting in instead of a spare tire).
Could you be a little bit more specific?tank less or a custom fit system where you might want to build a tank in somewhere?

G, he means an air compressor, for repeated use, not a one off tyre repair to get you out of trouble.

Titch, I've got a TJM one that cost about $200. Seems to go alright but I've never really used it as intended (6 wheels from 18->36psi or whatever you desire). The ARB units usually get good wraps. For a cheaper option, the Projecta Typhoon is usually spoken of ok. There are ebay specials that look identical to the Typhoon that people reckon are ok too. Never used one so... cavet emptor!

Not sure what your budget is, but this is considered pretty much the ducks nuts among 4wders.

Most mount them somewhere but I don't see why you couldn't have it in a little box.


I did buy one from supercheap auto once, their most expensive one at around $120. Didn't even pump one tyre before smoke started coming out of it.

if you use it with a small air tank I'm sure you could.

When i was working with trucks one of our trade customers who sold spare parts and accessories had this for sale, http://www.fnb4wd.com.au/prod5.htm so i got a price and when i went back to the truck he gave me it... SCORE lol

Its good for tyres etc, crap for air mattresses though, but its not meant for that anyway.
Mine goes with us every camping trip or long trips to no where.

I didn´t mean that leak-stuff either.I was talking about the compressor kit that Merceds Benz puts into their vehicles (to name one).As far as I know,they have a long cord and can even be hard wired into the vehicles electrical system.

I bought the SCA single piston one. It does a pretty good job for the price. I haven't used it on 6 tyre in one go, but I have used it on four 4WD tyres from 20 or 30 back up to 40psi with no worries. It comes with clamps that connect it to the battery rather than a cigarette lighter style plug. I like it because I can run it off the aux battery, which is always a good thing!
