    Looks almost the same minus the center portion and opposed cylinders. Even the part number looks the same/similar.

    Well, I tried this ballmer one. Just received mine today and I have very similar delivery issues as the video: Smashed and missing connector tab + broken silica bag covering the compressor (in addition to scratches).

    I'm leaning towards the arb single myself.

    If you're going to spend money on a chineseium knockoff, spend half as much on a Summit compressor. Similar speeds but less of a hit on your wallet when it craps out in a few years: https://sswoffroad.com/collections/wheels/products/summit-dual-air-compressor

    Thanks @3JOH22A - I returned the knock-off already today. For $400 I don't feel like cleaning and fixing something up. I'll look at some other options because both on price, and some reviews of the ARB unit im not convinced its worth the money.

    This. But my recommendation would be a Viair. These cheap knockoffs aren't cheap enough to warrant picking them over other, quality products which are available.

    I've been looking for a Black Friday deal on the ARB twin. With tax added back it would still be cheaper to buy it from Hotshotoffroad as he doesn't charge sales tax or shipping. Essentially msrp. Anyone seen a better deal?
