So this morning I was driving to pick up a car. ( I tow ) and My boss just got a 2006 International flatbed truck. It has air brakes and bags with a DUMP valve. So I was like. " Lets see how fast this bitch fills a 9 gallon tank" So I start dumping and refiling the damn bags and after 3 dumps I only had 80 psi. The truck was ideling and the copressor went on. It refiled the tank from 80 to 145 in less then 2 secs :confused: I mean WTF? How the fuck does that work? How big are those compressors?

They vary in size, about twice as big as a york. I've been lookin around to see differnet air systems on various size trucks, from semi's to ambulances. I'll let you know, I haven't hooked my York up yet for that reason. :biggrin:

Even if it draws more than a York, but only runs for under 10 seconds, you can'tbeat that. If I find one at a decent size, I will make it work. Everything can be done.

I think Air brakes run around 80-115 psi or so, so it's gotta push 200psi. they wouldn't make it to max out on a daily basis. I'm lookin Mark, like I said semi's have 50 gal tanks for air store, but smaller international and freightliner ambulances and what not probably have 12-20 gal. they onlt have 2 axles. I got the hook up, and I'll let you know.

BTW, when you juicin the Caddy and installin the Trunk monkey?
