Viair Goes Portable
Viair has just released new automatic portable air compressors: the 400P-A and 450P-A. The new air compressors offer automatic shutoff that simplifies tire filling in a revolutionary way. Rather than rushing from the tire back to the compressor to shut it off, all you have to do is let the compressor run. The automatic function of the compressors will turn the unit on and off for you while you move from tire to tire. This is especially useful for applications where compressor speed and long run time are desirable.
Both units are capable of 150-psi maximum working pressure and come with their own gas-station-style tire-inflation gun with high-performance air-pressure gauge on board. Additionally, the 400P-A and 450P-A portables come with heavy-duty battery-connection cables, an inflation-tips kit, heavy-duty sand tray with rubber overmold, and a heavy-duty carrying bag for added portability.
