ARB CKMA12 Air Compressor High Output On-Board 12V
The most popular in our range, the ARB High Output Air Compressor has been constructed entirely of lightweight, high-grade materials and is available in both portable and vehicle mounted configurations. With a class-leading flow rate, this compressor has been designed for Air Locker activation (on-board model), fast tire inflation and a range of other functions whether they be for work or play. The vehicle mounted kit comes with a full wiring loom and mounting hardware for easy installation, while the portable kit includes a 6 meter air hose, battery clamps, inflation kit, and a durable carry case.
4x4 air compressors provide truck owners with many advantages regardless of whether you're four wheeling, camping, fishing or hunting. ARB has a line of models, from vehicle mounted options to a portable air compressor, each suitable for numerous tasks including specific models available for Air Locker activation. Few 4x4 accessories offer as many advantages as readily available on-board air. Considered by truck owners around the world to be a staple accessory for off road travel, an ARB 4x4 air compressor provides an immediate source of compressed air anywhere a 12 volt power source is available. Tires perform best when they're set at a pressure that's appropriate for the terrain. While highway use calls for a relatively high pressure rate, lowering your air pressure will dramatically improve your 4x4's traction in a range of off road environments. Compressed air allows you the freedom to adjust the tire inflation level of your truck to suit the conditions An equally beneficial feature of on-board air is the ability to re-inflate tires that have been repaired - it's not unusual to get several punctures in one day when 4WDing in extreme off road conditions. In this environment, the value of owning a 4x4 air compressor is priceless. When coupled with good quality tire repair equipment, an ARB air compressor provides the off road traveler with independence and peace of mind. ARB 4x4 air compressors are individually leak tested, current draw tested and flow tested under load at the factory before packaging. And ARB's after-sales service is second to none with many of the compressor components readily available and easily sourced.

On Board System
So what makes this compressor special? It's small enough to fit into even the tightest space and quiet enough to mount in 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

Update #1 They are requesting that I ship it to them (at my expense) Will let you know what that cost?
Update #2 Finally got around to sending it back , $18.75 to ship it via USPS Flat Rate Large box. Sent it on the May 17th. , they got it on the May 19th.
Update #3 I just heard from them yesterday. even though they couldn't replicate the problem (Screeching when cold) , they are replacing the unit with a new one anyway (+1 for customer service)
Update 4. The new one doesn't t like the cold either, but out of warranty now.
Now another problem?! The ARB air inflator/gauge is worthless. When I needed it to air up/down my tires, the reading is off by 6-12psi. I aired down to 18 psi and checked with the gauge on the inflator and the inflator only read 9.5 psi on all tires. I verified the 18 psi was correct using two other air gauges. When I aired my tires back up to 32psi using the ARB inflator/gauge, I checked with two other pressure gauges and the both showed 44 psi!!! That's above the max rating on my tires and could have been VERY DANGEROUS if I trusted the ARB gauge/deflators and got on the freeway!!! Even when completely disconnected it reads 6-13psi. It's outside my return/exchange window so now I have a piece of junk paperweight. Again DO NOT buy or trust the air inflator/gauge. I shouldn't have to deal with this kinda crap from a company as popular and "well respected" as ARB.
I also like the fact that it is built in Australia and not China.
The one BIG drawback is with the alligator clips. They are simply too small. I have to clamp onto a nut on the battery lead, as the clamp will not fit over my battery terminal attachments on any vehicle that I own. The alligator clips do not have ridges on them, so the clamping is sketchy at best. I will be replacing the clamps on mine, but I shouldn't have to for the price this piece costs.
