I love my Power tank.

I had a little mishap on the interstate a few weeks back, it could have been a bad one but Iíll live. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I call the wife from the hospital to tell her Iíll be a little late and she seemed a little upset but handled it well. I found out 3 days later at my 39th birthday party that after I called, she ordered a Power Tank for me. All of a sudden she had a huge guilt trip for the way she has treated my little obsession with the jeep [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img].

I love this thing. I had no idea what I was missing. Repairs take very little time now, with air wrenches tires come off in seconds. I bet it didnít take but a few minutes to change a front axle yesterday, in the middle of no where. I really love this thing!!!

I need to have a few more accidents, there are a few more tools I need! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img][img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img][img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: I love my Power tank.

I like mine too. I made one up and got to try it out a couple weeks ago.I was mounting up some tires for my brotherinlaw.His compressor couldn't get the beads to set at 90psi so we got the co2 tank out and cranked it up to 120psi and popped them right into place.Have not tried yet on the trail it will be nice to air up and not have to look for a gas station.

Re: I love my Power tank.

She got the 10lb tank, it cost $13 to fill. So far I have removed all 4 tires, used it to remove and install a front axle shaft, air up 16 swammpers, 38's from 8lbs to 20lbs and it still has about 5lbs left in the tank.[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

We have only been married 16 1/2 years, I just might keep this one!

Re: I love my Power tank.

on the trail, they are the HOT SET-UP. airing up is quick and easy. i wheel with guys that have those whimpy compressors and they just suck-up on mine. i can air up one tire in about 60 seconds depending on the size/starting and ending pressure. just take care of it. i don't keep my reg on it when not in use- too much dust in the desert. also remember to release the pressure on the spring on the reg.

10lb tank costs me $5.38 to fill at a soda pop bottling joint.

Re: I love my Power tank.

Thanks for the info. I've been thinking about the PT-10 and wondered if it lasted long enough between fillups.

Re: I love my Power tank.

well, i didn't say they were CHEAP [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
i paid $320 for the 10lb tank/regulator and another $50 for the bracket which i mounted to the floor of the tub behind drivers seat.

my regulator crapped out after a few months of use and i got a replacement from steve at advanced air, no charge. just about a month ago that reg bit the big one too. steve sent me an up-graded reg with duel inlet filters. when it works, it is awesome and when it don't it's a POS!
