Amazing
Like most people I've purchased the portable air pumps at local discount stores. I have an SUV that I seldom used as it consumes 2 to 3 times the fuel that my subcompact does. The light comes on the dash advising me of low tire pressure.

The cheaper units start burning up before the tires are topped off and I have to finish with a bicycle pump. At 65 with the weather turning wet and cold, this is not fun. The gas stations with FREE AIR are few these days. You have to wait in line and the... more
Pros: Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

I've Had It For Over A Year, No Problems
It's fast, powerful, and quiet. Sometimes it does get a little bit warm. The fittings are high quality. I'll never go back to a $30 air compressor.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations

A Real (usable) Inflator
We live in Los Angels, CA and twice a year we drive to Jackson Hole, WY., a 1,000 mile drive each way. Since we always go in late Spring and late fall when Jackson Hole has plenty of snow on the ground at that time. We always make sure we have snow chains and a battery starter kit as temperature can drop below Zero at night.

I bought a COBRA starter and inflater unit to make sure we can correct a low the battery condition while we are in this cold weather and a potential under-inflated tire... more

Would Recommend It
I bought this air compresor for airing up tires on my atv's used it twice works great and takes only a
minute to do the job. ( only needs 4-7 psi per tire )

One thing I was worried about was the amp's needed to run it, I did'nt want to blow a fuse,
using the cigerette lighter on my atv worked great with no problems.

one complant I have with with the air compresor is the screw on tip,( for the valve stem ) I think it's a pain,
But it does work.

my other complant is, The air gauge... more

Inaccurate Gauge
Great little air compressor. I use it mainly for airing up the tires on my ATV trailer, truck, & wife's SUV. I've also used it on my Honda Big Red UTV.

The pump is compact, efficient, and well made. It put 25 additional pounds in my trailer tires in about 3 minutes each.

I would have given the pump 5 stars except for the inaccurate air pressure gauge on the pump. It read 40 lbs on my trailer tires when they actually had 60+ pounds in them after filling with the Viair 85.

Worth The Money
The compressor is easy to use and is worth the money I paid. The gauge on the compressor is not accurate, it's off about 2 to 3 psi, but on other compressors I have used the gauge was off up to 10 psi.

If you don't have a tire gauge at the time you need the compressor it gets you close enough without excessive over or under inflating your tires.

All Around Use.
I can't believe this small profile device delivers such sure and dependable performance.

So far, so great...can't say a negative thing about my Viair.

Great little machine for a good price.

Works Good
I read a lot about this thing blowing fuses in cars and trucks. Well, do like I did and put in a 50 amp fuse holder and new wire in a circuit-there you go, it works great!!!

These folks complaining about the blown fuses I think have no mechanical ability at all.


It's a very good product- thank you.
