ExtremeAire Magnum: Burst Hose!
I have used the ExtremeAire Magnum portable unit on two outings so far and both times the polyurethane red coil hose blew out at the same location (ref. attached image). The first time was on the fourth tire in sequence airing up from 35 psi to 65 psi, the second time was on the third tire at the same pressures.
The compressor is rated as continuous duty and I would assume there is no cool down necessary during use. The plastic red hose gets quite hot (hot to the touch!) at its brass junction with the black reinforced hose, which softens it, causing it to burst. Not a good thing out in the field.
Has anyone else had this issue? My workaround is to submerge the hose junction in a basin of water to dissipate the heat. Works well enough but not very elegant.
Otherwise the unit works great.
