I have bought a T-MAX 12V Air Compressor – The 45amp, 150PSI version (BA2663) for my Defender step project. The Model No. 180660.
There are a few accessories included which are 8m (Not 10m as stated in the video, sorry!) of hose and a few airbed/ball adaptors. None of these I will be using. The plan is to permanently install this compressor under the passenger seat in the Defender to provide an air supply to a small air reservoir for the air actuators for both steps. I don’t think the actuators are too heavy on the air and the reservoir will act as a buffer. More on this in a later video. Back to the review…..
The compressor (T-Max) came well packed from an eBay supplier and the manufacturer supplied it in a strong box and polystyrene shell. All the contents arrived in an excellent condition. Opening the box and removing the top poly layer revealed a nylon zipped bag containing the T-Max. This would be handy if you wanted to keep all the bits and piece together in your car. Unzipping it exposed the compressor unit.
At first look it appears to be a well-made item. It has a good weight to it which often means quality, not always though. The T-max sits on a pressed steel tray, isolated by 4 rubber mounts. On the underside of the tray are another 4 rubber feet. This will certainly mitigate some of the vibrations produced by the compressor. I did a bit of prodding and poking of the compressor and I must say it has got my seal of approval so far. Now to the limited test.
I deflated an 18” Defender tyre to 10PSI. Having clipped the T-Max power cable to the truck battery I fired it up on the tyre and found it took less than 90 seconds to restore it to the normal 32PSI I use. I was very impressed and I also observed the T-Max barely got warm although it was a short test. The current drawn on load was a tad over 43amps. It states in the manual that you should run the engine in the vehicle when using the T-max. This is something I would agree with. The croc clips remained cold when on the battery which shows they do grip very well.
As stated earlier I bought this for my step project but I think I will also be using it as required to pump up tyres as and when needed as soon as I add an addition port to it. Keep a look out for future videos as I’m sure this will feature in them.
Link to eBay seller from whom I bought the compressor at the cost around £98 delivered. It will cost more from everyone else, believe me, I’ve looked! :
