We know the best thing about exploring the outback in a 4x4 is the ability to go anywhere. There are always new challenges and unknown tracks to take on and you never know what’s just around the corner. So, as standard practice, wherever you are the first thing you do to avoid getting stuck is lowering the air pressure in your tires for maximum grip. As we know the lower the PSI, the higher the load capacity (is this true? I thought higher pressure for more weight capacity – like truck tyres) and traction on soft sand becomes a lot more manageable.  

If you plan on doing a lot of beach driving on your next trip it’s important to think about how you might manage the daily task of deflating and inflating tires. In some parts of Australia, the nearest petrol station can be hundreds of kilometres away from any beach. Driving on highways with deflated tires is extremely dangerous, so carrying a portable air compressor is essential.  

The Mean Mother Adventurer III Heavy Duty 12V Air Compressor has been designed for serious off-road use. Packed with all the inflating power you need to get the job done. We tested it out for ourselves and were blown away with its ability to deliver an incredible 180 Litres per minute at 150 psi. The 160PSI/ 1084kPa output will inflate an average 4x4 tyre in around 2.3 minutes, which is insanely fast compared when compared to other models. It's equipped with all the standard features you’d expect in a compressor of this quality such as thermal overload & circuit breaker protection, as well as a premium wireless remote control. The remote allows the user to start and stop the inflation process and get accurate tyre pressure readings without having to go back and forth to turn it off and on. This lightweight portable air compressor hooks straight up to your car battery so you never need a power source other than your own 4x4.
