Big Rig Stufff..... F-350/550 x Air Brake adaptor...

Can anyone recommend an air compressor and tank kit, 12volt, to adapt a non air brakes F-350 to an air brake trailer??? I know I have seen them in past years but I don't know who makes it. It is relay powered off the electronic brake controller, and runs off 12v on its own with compressor and reserve tank... Seen It????

Thanks in advance from Oz... Ranger

Bump.... Here in Australia we have to run air brakes on any trailer with a ATM (trailer GVM) of over 4500 kg.... So really air brakes on anything that is over 10,000 lbs fully loaded. That is why the question on a source for the Air Brake Generator kit.... Even Tri-Axle Electric brakes do not comply...

Hey Big Tone, You are The Man!!! Tell me more!!! What is a 1 ton Hotshot??? I assume you mean an F-350... Pulling 20 ton rigs??? What engine mods? Any tranny mods? I was hoping to pull maybe 9-10 ton once in a while... Like a 7 ton 38' Gooseneck with maybe 3 ton of horses, food, water, feed.. That sort of thing...

So tell me, what is a Hotshot? Ford I hope.. If not then:

Just kidding,

But tell me more when you find out... Please...

A hotshot is what us yanks call a 1 ton or up to a 2 1/2 ton truck pulling a big trailer, usually a deck over or "flat bed" some as long as 45'. This guy has one Ford 550 and one dodge 3500 both short wheel base cab & chassis, no beds just fifth wheels. let you know what I find out p.s. I meant to use capotal F and small case d
