Engine Driven Air compressor?

Looking at on board air setups for filling tires, running air tools, and inflating helper bags and found RiffRaff has this: Riffraff Diesel: ExtremeFlow Belt Drive Compressor

It's $400, but that's not that much more then a decent set of compressors that will run some air tools, but I'd like to know if anyone has experience with RiffRaff's kit.

Did not know they offered that! I like the setup but its over $1,000 if you get it with the mount kit! !

That will have to go on my list, but near the bottom!

Whoa! Looked at that on my phone and didn't see the small print at the bottom. Cool idea but I can buy a lot of Viair's for that amount of money. Thanks for catching that, I'll plan a normal air compressor setup.

Look into the york compressors. Their actually a/c compressors but light modifications and they make a great OBA setup. I have one on my s10 expo rig. Been looking at setting one of for my truck and possibly mounting it in the second alternator location. I have 2 or 3 laying around since they can be had for about $20.

A little extra cost on this one but it would be nice to use it with engine off and not have to worry about one more thing to maintain in the belt system! Oh an it looks like it would easily out perform the belt drive!

If this kit was 500 total I would buy one today! I have 2 viair compressors and they were the best thing I have done! I have 5 different trailers, a tractor, 2 ridding mowers and it never fails, something always needs air! Plus the horns on the truck, airbags and air pin on the rv... Dang I have too many things
