One of the highest performing compressors that we carry, the Viair 485C Air Compressor is the compressor of choice for all of our top-of-the-line train horn kits and onboard air systems. That’s because the Viair 485C is the perfect marriage of performance and speed. The first compressor in its class to boast a 100% duty cycle all the way up to 200 PSI, the Viair 485C can handle most pneumatic tasks you can throw at it, such as tire inflation, running air tools, powering suspension systems, and powering the biggest and loudest horns we carry! Due to the Viair 485C sleek new head design, it doesn't need to sacrifice performance for speed, rocking recharge times of a fast-fill, while still giving you the constant duty dependability you need. The Viair 485C will recharge a 2.5-gallon tank from 165-200 PSI in just 1 minute and 15 seconds and recharge a 5-gallon tank from 165-200 PSI in just under two and a half minutes.
The Viair 485C comes complete with a remote mountable intake filter assembly, or “Air Filter Snorkel Kit”, allowing you to relocate the air filter up to 6 feet away to keep it away from moisture and debris. It also includes a standard 3/8″ NPT stainless steel braided leader hose with check valve and insulated wiring for fast installation.
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.

The 485c replaced my 2 yr old 444 compressor that seized. This compressor is much quieter and fills my 3 gal tank faster. So far I am extremely satisfied. I would recommend the 485c to anyone with a larger tank or running a 200psi setup. This powers my hornblaster horn and my mack air horn with ease.
THANKS HORNBLASTERS FOR GETTING ME A REPLACEMENT PUMP QUICKLY FOR MY WORN OUT OLD PUMP. WITHOUT YOU GUYS MY TRAILER WOULD'VE BEEN DOWN SEVERAL MORE DAYS WITH SEVERAL THOUSAND DOLLARS LOST. THANKS FOR KEEPING PLENTY OF QUALITY ITEMS IN STOCK AND BEING A DEPENDABLE OVERNIGHT SHIPPER. A CLASS ACT IS THE BEST DESCRIPTION FOR HORNBLASTERS AS A WHOLE!
This pump is replacing the original unit that came with the Conductors Special Nightmare Edition that was purchased in September of 2019. I'm hoping it lasts this time.
This system was always a bit loud while filling the new compressor is much quieter and doesn’t seem to take as long as my old unit possibly from over use love it thanks guys
