they maybe even cheaper than $250. would be worth to have just for the convinience.

Iam not sure but the set up was 250 to 300 but isn't there also a tank rental???? I had heard that you could buy the tank but they were expensive???

that price inclues the tank. otherwise its just a regulator and a buch of fittings. tanks are not expensive these days.

if it's just a tire valve stem fitting then i have all we need.
fitting is a male 1/4 JIG (flare) but i have adapters to pipe thread and air line fittings.
making a hose is easy.
PM me and i'll shoot you my #

can u not fill the "airshocks" with regular ol compressed air??

trailburban
11-06-2006, 11:23 PM
no. air has moisture that will react to the oil, also air is compressable into a liquid form where as nitrogen is not.

all gas is compressable to a liquid

OK that is true, but nitrogen can only be compressed to a liquid at -320.4 deg. F at 1 atm

We use it all the time to check A/C systems for leaks and just let it go. I could do it but well I'm up here and no good to anyone.
