No more Low Tire Pressure

I was given a portable air tank from my dealer today. I am always complaining about having low tire pressure while going thru my daily route especially in the summer. This should fix the problem, at least for now. I am going to have it bolted to my new box that I am having attached to this trailer on Friday. Will add a longer air tube and I will have a winner.

Sweet. I have an air tank similar to that. Think I will have to start carrying it with me.

I have a small compressor bought from sears about 12 years ago that I carry.Its electric and small....about 5"wide x 6" tall and 12" long. It will fill trailer tires up too.

I carry a large one of those on my trailer too. I made a longer hose, long enough to reach off the trailer and all 4 trailer wheels. If I see a low tire on the trailer I can air 'er up, same with low tires on the mowers. I have slime in the mower tires, but sometimes air can excape past that stuff, or if I get some COLD weather then some stuff needs a shot of air. I have a quick connect plus a small ball valve I added to mine so I can fill it FAST with my garage compressor.

I've never had the need to fill my tires up while in the field unless one of them has a leak. You guys are checking air pressures as part of your weekly maintainance aren't you?

don't bolt the tank down.....you may need it to walk out to a mower that got a flat tire, more than 10 feet away from the truck....

Also. FWIW Old Propane Tanks that don't have the OPD valves can be used as air tanks as well... All you need is a guage and fill valve
