    Is anyone interested in this compressor (currently called the MF-1050)?

    Fantastic output for such a low price. They used to sell for around $40 but they have gone up to around $70 now.

    In order to get the discount I agreed not to publish the exact price, but I can say that I have arranged to get them between the prices shown above.

    Send me a PM if you are interested and I will send you the details.

    Thanks.

    Where were you pre SnT?:frown:

    The night before I bought one from Pep Boys for $59+ excluding tax.
    Many good reviews on this model. Something to get before upgrading to air tanks. Good backup for air tanks also.

    One Review Same model and specs but different name.

    Joe- It was actually at SnT that I decided that I needed to improve my capability to air up more quickly. Also, I am not convinced that I need a $2xx tank solution just yet and this was the best solution I have found for the money. Thanks for the additional link w/review.

    Pablo- PM sent.

    Fills all four of my 33x 12.5 in 15 min from 8psi to 35 THATS ALL FOUR.

    Only changes are that I've moved the compressor to the rear cargo storage area instead of under the hood.

    This little compressor KICKS ASS.

    I bought one from Pep Boys two months ago for 49.98 + tax. This portable air pumps really kicks a$$ with no vibration and made of steel not some cheapo plastics. MF1050 and MV50 are basically the same model.

    Curious.

    Has anyone thought about mounting this in the engine bay or wherever you wish to have it, then cut off the aligator clips and wire it straight to the battery via a 30 amp relay and a swtich mounted in you cab somewhere?

    Some 55 guys have done exactly that and added a 2.5 gal. tank & pressure switch.
