    Does anyone have one of these WARN Air-Power VTC? Their website says 8 cfm @ 90 PSI I wonder if it really is and how much it would take to air up a 33" 285?

    I just ordered one in hopes to never have to buy another one that lasts a couple of months and then starts sucking.

    Im guessing it would take less than a min. to fill a 33" tire from 15 to 30 psi. The CFM is going to be more at the lower psi, so maybe even as low as 30 seconds. Whats the duty cycle of that compressor?

    Takes about 1 min to do 18 to 34 psi. Duty cycle is 50% so, 30 minutes of straight compressing. Then cool off for 30 - Am much as I like it, I would love to have a Sanden compressor with an oiler and a separator! ;)

    I'm getting ready to permenently mount in bed of truck and I may add another tank or two.

    Well...the duty cycle is defined in a 10 min. period. If its a 50% cycle, that means for every 5 mins of use, you need to let it chill for 5 mins. Then you can use it again. I learned this the hard way.

    When I asked a guy at Warn - He's the one that said that it could run for 30 min.... I generally used it for less than 5 minutes and 10-12 max. I would hate to fry the thang! :eek:
