This video looks at how decreasing the pressure in your tires protects them from internal damage by dissipating pressure and absorbing rock impact.
Video 2: What is the best compressor for my needs? Part 1
Does having big tires mean you need a big compressor? We look at tire size, tire type, and PSI range to give you an idea of which compressor will work for you.
Video 3: What is the best compressor for my needs? Part 2
We go more into depth with the volume of air needed to fill tires, load range and PSI.
Video 4: What is Duty Cycle?
The mystery of Duty Cycle, itís a term often thrown around but what does it actually mean? How is duty cycle effected by ambient temperature, and PSI? How hot does it get under the hood?
Video 5: 12 volt power?
A compressor can draw as much power as a winch, pulling 40 Ė80 amps of load for ten minutes, so itís important you have a good quality battery. We recommend sizing the electrical cable correctly, having a good ground, and idling the engine when running the compressor to get the full 14 volts out of the alternator.
Video 6: Air Tools
Minimum requirements are a Ĺ horsepower compressor and an air tank. The air tank provides the reservoir of kinetic energy to give steady cfm, air pressure and torque values.
Video 7: Do I need an air tank?
If you are running accessories, tools, or air bags an air tank is recommended. An air tank makes work like re-seating a bead easier and provided consistent air pressure to run accessories. We look at portable air tanks as a solution.
Video 8: On board air vs. a portable compressor?
Itís all personal preference.
Video 9: Dual Sport motorcycle compressors
Small compressors and Dual Sport. Airing tires down for protection and terrain variation.
Video 10: Components for a hard mounted system
We lay out all the parts you need to connect the compressor and air tank together and wire them up to the vehicles electrical system.
Video 11: Mounting the system onto the vehicle
The final steps in the process, accessing the air at the back of the vehicle,
bolting the compressor and air tank to the chassis, and plumbing the airlines and electrical.
We carry a full line of compressors, and accessories. If you are looking for something and don't see it here, call us for information.
