Maybe something's wrong here.... but our SMB we just bought came with a Quickair 3. Now, as far as i know they're supposed to be somewhat fast and pretty reliable. They've been on the market for quite some time.
Well, it took a good 10 mins to air up a 285/75R16 from 25lbs to 55 lbs. AND, it overheated and shut off after just 2 tires.
After cooling, i proceeded to air up the rest of the tires and it shut down again halfway through the last tire.
Coming from c02.. this is un-acceptable. Especially for a $399 compressor! Even my buddies crappy Costco compressor finished before us. Thank goodness we were airing up at camp and time didn't matter... since it took nearly 2 hours to air up! Just imagine a group of rigs waiting to head off down pavement and they're waiting for us!
This cant be right? Can it? I mean our tire size is tiny compared to what these compressors are supposed to be able to handle. And it says the runtime is 40 mins with 15 mins rest... i barely got 20-25 mins out of the thing.
The thing looks brand new.. the PO barely used it. I might call Sun Perf. tomorrow.. they're local to us. Maybe it needs to be looked at.
Compressor in question...
