ARB On-Board High Performance 12v Air Compressor


 Product Description

The ARB On-Board 12v Compressor is a hard mount unit intended for permanent mounting on your vehicle.

The kit includes a full wiring loom with air locker solenoid plug in contacts; mounting hardware with reinforcing bracket; and a compressor isolating switch. 

The unit is small enough to fit into tight spaces and quiet enough to mount inside the cab. It has enough output to air up four 35" - 37" tires in a single duty cycle and typically airs up a 35" tire in just over two minutes. It has been extensively tested inside ovens, freezers, underwater and in the silty dust of the Australian Simpson Desert and it continues to perform. Use it for airing up your tires; cleaning dusty components; or inflating camping gear.
