      Smittybilt beast

      Saw the unit on a youtube vid and bought it. At the beach airing up I'm the first to pack up and ride off with all tires inflated! Everyone else has a small lighter outlet model and they just sit there waiting for it to work. Great powerful unit for the price! Get one!

      Best 12V Portable Ever

      I have owned a few portable compressors over the years but nothing like this one. My 35's will go from 18 to 32 PSI in three minutes. Heavy, sturdy, and does what it is made to do!

      Aur Compressor

      Took my Jeep to the beach on the 4th. And my gf son took his Explorer. We dropped out tire pressure down to 20lbs, and hit the beach. Afterwards when we left the beach I used my new Smittybilt Air Compressor to reinflate our tires. It took maybe 2 minutes per tire. I wish I had bought this sooner. Stopping at a crowded gas station spendind $3.50 every time I needed to air up sucked!

      Very good except FAULTY pressure gauge

      This product is almost perfect relative to its competition, but one major issue I have is the pressure gauge does not provide an accurate reading what-so-ever. Furthermore, the gauge does not consistently provide an incorrect reading, e.g. it is not always 20 psi off, sometimes its incorrect by 10 psi, sometimes 20 psi, etc. Perhaps mine is defected? Other than the faulty pressure gauge, the compressor works great. It has a very good CFM relative to its 12V competitors, and I am pleasantly surprised by how "quiet" it is *for a compressor*. I use this compressor along with the Barricade deflators for off-road, and its a great combination for quick deflation and inflation. I ride 20 psi off-road and 30 psi on-road with 35 inch tires. I haven't measured the inflate time, but I'd roughly estimate under 2 minutes per tire. The faulty pressure gauge unfortunately adds more time since I have to remove the pressurized line (containing the in-line gauge) and accurately check the pressure with a separate gauge, then adjust accordingly. This is really inconvenient, hence the 3-star rating instead of 4.5 stars (0.5 star deduction for price, since it's expensive for what it is ... my 10 gallon compressor in the garage costs less).

      Fast...

      This compressor is Really fast to fill up your tires after some good time wheeling I strongly recommend it, no just because it’s fast but the material feels good quality in all the components it’s a little heavy but I believe because the heavy duty composition, love it!!!

      Smittybilt High Performance Air Compressor

      I haven't had a chance to use it yet but it appears to be a nice heavy duty unit. It comes with all you need. My personal preference would be to replace the screw on connection that goes to the tire valve with a quick release adaptor.

      Great reasonably priced air compressor

      Would have rated the compressor a 5 star if Smittybilt used standard fittings rather than their own proprietary ones. Performance is great - airs up much faster than our old ARB compressor. Airs a 35" from 14 to 37 in about 3.5 minutes each. Would recommend!!

      Does a great job

      Runs a little hot. And the coiled line broke the first time I used it. My repair has held great since then and I can air up my 35s in about 2 minutes for each tire.

      Works great!

      So far I've used it 3 times. Each time all four 35 inch tires were aired up in under 15 minutes. From 10 psi to 50. My only complaint is, the gauge that comes with it is off by 5 psi.

      Fills up 35s very quickly.

      So, this compressor is bigger than you think and it’s just barely too long to fit sitting longways in a 2-door JK trunk. That’s the only minus for me but since it is specific to my overcrowded trunk, I didn’t subtract any stars for that. What it does do ver well is move a truly massive volume of air into your tires. I can go from 10-30 psi in my 35” tires in about a minute which (for those of you who run larger tires can attest to! is impressive. I believe it pushes the most volume of any compressor short of the ARB twin which is the only thing I could possibly say I’d rather have but at like 1/3 the price, the Smitty is the winner for me. It doesn’t get too hot either and after filling all four tires after the trail, I can put it right back in the bag and go on my merry way. I ended up buying a new hose with different fittings so I could hook up my arb Tire inflator but have otherwise made no modifications. Love this compressor, regularly recommend it to people on the trail.

      Good for what it does but..

      It's good for what it does but the connections are proprietary to Smitty built. In other words the male and female connectors only work with what comes in the box. If you have a crimp the cheap hose you're going to have to be handy and modify the connection to a new hose. Not a reason to not choose this compressor just a pain in the butt Smitty built should have disclosed.
