Sears make a good one. 150lb pressure tank. Its about $100. If you want to air up tires you should have at least 150!b.

We have the porter-cable pancake compressor. Works great, I have it set between the frame rails. With 50' of hose coiled on a compartment door.

I can air up every tire on the bus and toad. Plus I've used it the fill the chassis air tanks for filling the air bags while it's indoors.

I bought a Coleman tank unit at Lowes some years ago. I don't think they even make it anymore. Too bad as it does the job easily.

I've got the same one though I couldn't find it on the Sears website. However, this one is the same one under the Porter label. I've had mine for several years and it does a great job. Nice to have the 150psi limit if you have to air up to 120 psi. Otherwise you have to bleed the hose to get the compressor to start up again.

Here is what I have and have carried it with me for the last 10 years. It has been very dependable. I even use it with my nail guns occasionally for small jobs.

I have the craftsman but am considering putting one on my truck with dual compressors. Vivar makes such a kit.

I purchased a small unit from Walmart. Campbell / Hausfeld Has a 125 max capacity and also an adjustable pressure regulator. I also purchased a "locking air chuck" that will attach to the tire valve stem and then set the regulator to the desired pressure and go have a "cold one". Safety aspect, anytime you have a tire that is more than 40% deflated, it is recommended that the tire be "deflated, removed, inspected, and "re inflated" using a cage or other safety devise. This is especially true on an 11.00/R 20 or other size larger truck or bus tire.
