Yep - but...
I did sort of get a chuck-le at the hose and accessory kit. Replaced with 1/4" fittings and attachments - 50' Goodyear hose. It does raise the combined "package" weight but really - i think I heard the compressor itself laughing at that hose. I use the heavier hose as a wedge / weight in the bay to help keep the compressor in it's place.

Takes me longer to get the air hose out and put it away than it does to air all 6 tires up.

Now at home I have an 80 gallon 200 psi compressor I use rather than run the engine to air up, but on the road I like having the basement space for something useful like my golf clubs.
Problem is that our front tires took 120 psi and the high limit is 125. Almost impossible to do with those pressures no matter what you do.
