Question ARB Portable Compressor

So I was wondering if anyone has the ARB Portable High Performance 12 Volt Air Compressor (CKMP12) and if you can give me any feedback on it. I have a chance at getting this at a decent price so just hoping someone can give me their opinion on how it performs, good or bad. Thank you.

I don't own one but it looks like a nice unit, just like most stuff ARB makes (albeit overpriced at times).

I do own the Viair 450P which I compared with the ARB when I purchased. At the time, I saw that the Viair is 100% duty rated and was a bit less expensive which is why I didn't get the ARB. I've filled multiple sets of tires without cooling down using the Viair and couldn't be happier. If it was just a toss-up, I'd probably pick the unit that cost less as they both perform well.

I got the arb twin compressor for my OBA setup. It's my favorite mod so far. Not only Does it operate the lockers but With a 2.5gallon tank i can run my air tools, and fill each tire in under a minute. It was a little pricy, but worth every Penney in my eyes.

Just remember, if you're in a wet climate, inline water filters are a must!

X2 on the 450P, only used it a few times but works perfect for what I need, the power cables are 10' and the air hose extends over 10' IIRc.
