    No matter what compressor you go to I dont think you'll see that much (4x) decrease in your air up time. For that you would probably want to look into bottled CO2.

    Definitely not going the CO2 route. Maybe not 4x difference but Old Brett's compressor filled up my tires a "helluva lot" faster than the MV-50. How's that for technical jargon?

    Everyone forgets about the puma. It's what I'm running, for $250ish, you get compressor and tank. It is large, but you can separate them and make it fit better. The compressor would fit under the hood of earlier 2nd gens but mine has some emissions bullshit in the way.

    Sup crackers! Chilling east of Jasper. Rainy day so I'll be doing probably three updates in my thread since I've got a bunch of pictures.

    Unfortunately with fire season in full swing, Banff and Jasper are full of smoke so pictures were not as awesome as I'd hoped for. Last few days you could drive down the icefield parkway and just see the outlines of mountains in front of you. Phone won't load the upload thingy right now.

    I used to run a Viar 400p. I feel the air up times were on the slower side of average. It did its job hundreds of times without complaint often doing more than one vehicle. It is/was reliable, no frills air. I rant the portable version and only recently sold it to switch to a hard mount. Racing an MV50 I found it completed 4 tires just as the MV50 completed 3. Racing a modded MV50 the finish was almost equal.

    I carried CO2 forever and used to use that for fill-ups. It is way too fast and a waste if you are running with guys who air up with compressors. Typical results was 4 tires filled up before their 1st tire was filled. I'm getting my bottle re-certified to run again though, it does help when re-seating beads.

    My new "hard mount" compressor is an ARB. I have not aired up with it yet. It is the large single piston version, not the baller twin. I'm making the switch to hard mount because I don't want to store it in the cabin anymore, if I had a truck I would stay with the 400p

    I do. Not the greatest, because I'm driving. I'll get them off my phone and post up here soon.

    Thank you for your input. Always appreciated and respected.

    Maybe this is the case with all compressors, but my MV50 gets scorching hot after filling two 31" tires from 18 to 35 psi. After three tires I can cook an egg on it, after four tires we set up chairs around it as if it's a campfire.

    I usually let it rest for a few minutes between tires 2 and 3 but yesterday I was in no mood to sit around getting shellacked by hail.

    That's a lot of hippie labor.

    Look at the specs, it's cfm is almost the same as the Arb twin.


    6.2 cfm Arb twin
    5.3 cfm northern tool
    2.5cfm mv50

    my 2 cents is ARB, either Single or Twin.

    No doubt it dwarfs the MV50. I was commenting on the MV90 which has 3.71 CFM output.

    The 400p would boil water that would hit the cylinder head. Just seems normal for those little things.

    Well my little $40 viair 88P was only behind the $500 arb twin by maybe 3 minutes total. Both on 33's. My baby viair will fill up my 33's from 10-35 psi in 4-5 minutes per tire. Not lighting fast, but nearly keeps up with things 10X it's price.
