I use mine a lot, get lots of flat tyres when working and I dislike changing tyres

Well George, What's your verdict?

Before you go and use a servo based compressor - check to make sure there is a moisture trap and that you are not puting lots of condensation into your tyres...

To do this - I have a loose tyre valve stem. Before using a servo compressor I connect it to the air line and let it run for 10-15 sec to make sure there is no moisture coming out..

One time I was coming back from Stockton and stopped at a very well attended servo and there was so much moisture coming out that it was like a fine mist of water... - suffice to say I didn't fill up at that servo, but rather waited 20 mins for a mate to finish using his compressor and used that (I didn't take mine with me on that trip unfortunately)



Whilst a little bit won't destroy your tyres or cause too much issue - moisture can cause leaking valves.....

Yep, I went to our local servo once and it was almost like turning on the water tap

Good reminder. I just bought a large from from tool supply company and use that at home. Has a water trap.

We carry one & use it every time we hit the bitumen on outback trips.

We do 20PSI in the front tyres & 26PSI in the rears on most dirt roads. The tyres on the CT have 20PSI in them also on the dirt.

40PSI all round on the tar.

I stopped playing in mud when I was about 4 years old. If it's muddy, we don't go. If it rains when we're out there, we wait till it dries out.

I enjoy driving in sand, no mess & if you've thought it through, no issues! Pitty that the same can't be said for bulldust wallows lol!
