ARB - High Performance On-Board Compressor for ARB Air Lockers
There's nothing quite as satisfying as having a vehicle that performs above the rest when it comes to off-road riding, but that means you have to invest some time and money. ARB Air Lockers are a great way to give your vehicle more traction when it comes to off-road riding, but you need to make sure you have an ARB air compressor to accompany it. These air compressors are designed with a full seal to resist moisture and dust so they can keep your ARB Air Lockers up and running for a long time to come.

The origins of ARB can be traced back to Australia’s remote Top End, circa 1975. A region of vast distances and rugged terrain, it was fast becoming a Mecca for the nation’s burgeoning 4WD community. However, the very environment that attracted 4 wheelers also wreaked havoc on their equipment – when driving in extreme conditions, only the best 4×4 accessories will do.
This was the conclusion drawn by Tony Brown during his travels at the time. While exploring the treasures of the Top End, the skills Tony gained from working on his Land Rover were regularly called on to mend damaged bull bars and broken roof racks. Bar work back then was crude, not at all suited to overland touring, and through this experience an idea was born – high quality equipment that met the vigorous demands of 4WD owners.
Upon returning to Melbourne, Tony put theory into practice via the family garage, where he sought to address the product deficiencies he’d encountered. His vision called for a combination of sound design principles and reliable raw materials… a simple solution to an endemic problem. The concept was embraced when it hit the fledgling 4×4 market, and ARB – the initials of Anthony Ronald Brown – was founded.
Reliable and inflated tires plenty fast, good balance between price and speed!
The ARB pushes so much more air than my old Viair compressor. Being hard mounted, I have one less bag loose around the trunk. Mounted it in the engine bay and put together my own two tire inflation hose. Would suggest just getting the ARB inflation kit (single hose) and inflator with this if you want just single tire inflation. This compressor is plenty for pumping tires. Reliable and inflated tires plenty fast, good balance between price and speed. Powerful little compressor with ARB quality and rep. It compact enough to fit in tighter engine bays as well. Comes with wiring harnesses with easy positive and negative wiring to battery and one to a switch. 4WD Crew made the decision easy with a good price. Compressor was in stock and arrived in a few days, sooner than I expected.
