    Hey that looks great. On the inverter can you explain to me about it and way such a big one, compared to a wal-mart $20 small one that is about 8inx8in compared to your 2ftx3ft converter. Thanks For The Input

    Yes just for tires. All my air tools are 18v Dewart Impact Drives....

    Guessing it's about 6 inches deep and 1.5 feet wide. I just happened to get a good deal at an auction and I liked the fact that it had a branch output circuit to run the external outlets. No way a $20 inverter will run a compressor even half this size, they draw a lot of power.

    Thanks for the info. I thought that was the issue with the power draw but wasn't sure.

    around here guys mount two 5 gallon tanks to their trailer look at the gauges before you leave in the morning if they need filling fill them up

    another thing... a lot of gas stations around here have free air so fill up gas tanks then fill up air tanks all in one stop

    Man that look great. I like how it snaps in to the floor of your truck. I have a Wal-Mart cheep one and it does not snap down and it is always moving.
