Napa Maxi-Trac 100LPM 12v Compressor

Recommended Posts

Today I used it to air up after a run. I didn't time it but it was darn fast even having to move hoses because I haven't finished the 4 way. I'd say no more than 5 minutes from 15 to 34 all round. 

It's also the first time i ran with the autolynx and WOW what a difference.

If you are going to do a 4 tire inflation system then my earlier suggestion to add a tank won't be much help to you.

All this talk of upgrading compressors, I thought I'd share my solution.  With this, I can air up my tires and get a good cardio workout at the same time.  Work smarter, not harder. :)

Is that the “Frankie Yankovic Special Edition” compressor you’ve got there?!

Introducing the Squishmaster 3000!

 

So I think I'm finally done with my install, after many many many orders and returns as I figured out how I wanted it to work.

 

Mount

From Home Depot:

  • Snap LOC etrack 
  • Simpson mend straps (8")
  • Misc hardware

From Amazon:

  • Vibration dampers

From Harbor Freight:

  • 2 ATV winch mounts

Power (Amazon)

  • 2 awg cable
  • 125 A breaker
  • 120 A relay
  • Loom from Scott
  • Offroadland 6 gang switch kit

Air delivery (A)

  • 6 mm push to connect hose and fittings
  • 3 ball valves
  • 4 chucks
  • 1 4-way manifold
  • 4 Deflators
  • Gauge
  • Cable clips

 

I ran the push to connect hose from the bed to a Tee that feeds each side.

 

On a whim I added a valve to each side as well in case I wanted to inflate or deflate only one side.

 

I couldn't really figure out a good way to attach the valves but there's a hole in the body metal that I used to zip tie them in place until I figure out something better.

 

From the valves is a little stub hose that I can clip to the rock rail (if it holds. I'm not sure it will). I attach the tee for each side to this stub. 

When I'm done I just remove the side hoses and put them away.. it's much less to manage than a regular four-way fill system. 

 

Inflation from 17 to 34 was under 4 minutes.

 

 

Deflation took just over 7 minutes. I understand Boulder tools has a new and improved version but I'm not going to buy them. 

To deflate all I do now is connect the hoses and turn the valve. The deflators stay connected to the manifold always.
