Looking for a powerful mobile compressor that can run 200 PSI easily without breaking a sweat? Check out the Viair 480C Air Compressor. With a 100% duty cycle at 100 PSI and a 50% duty cycle at 200 PSI, the Viair 480C Pewter Air Compressor is a truly continuous-duty compressor, able to power a host of pneumatic applications, such as tire inflation, air tools, air suspension, as well as making sure your HornBlasters horns are always ready to go. The Viair 480C doesn’t need to trade longevity for speed, still able to recharge a 2.5-gallon tank from 165-200 PSI in just over 1 minute and 30 seconds and recharge a 5-gallon tank from 165-200 PSI in just over three minutes.

The Viair 480C Air Compressor comes complete with a remote mountable intake filter assembly, or “Air Snorkel Kit”, allowing the air intake to be moved to use clean air even if the compressors are mounted in the way of debris, moisture, and other air system contaminants. Includes a standard 3/8″ NPT stainless steel braided leader hose with check valve and insulated wiring for fast installation.

This compressor does come with the option to add our 40 Amp Air Compressor Wiring Kit to it as well!

Note: Use thread sealant for proper installation. Thread tape is not recommended. Properly sealed, recommended torque for 1/8″ is 10 ~ 11 ft. lbs. Recommended torque for 1/4″ and 3/8″ is 12 ~ 15 ft. lbs.
