    Need new compressors, which ones?

    I'm running a set of Firestone 9210's and they are dun! So I'm in the market for a new set. But which ones? I searched around some, but didn't really find anything on vs. for compressors? I have been looking at ViAir and AZ.
    Who is running what and what are the pros and cons?
    Thanks in advance.

    how many gallons of air do you have? i have found viair 380s and 480s are great for 200 psi 100% duty. and the viair 350s and 450 are good if your running 150 psi or lower. i hear alot ofbad about AZ comps. if i were you i would stick with viair or get an engine driven comp

    I've been running Viairs in all my projects, and they're pretty much all I recomend to anyone...

    yep, my viar is a champ. I have no personal experience with any other brand. But i have no reason to purchase another brand when i replace my 450.

    No...it's a 200 amp winch motor on a York. I don't care what anybody says, even in short bursts, that will eventually smoke your charging system..you'll need to upgrade your entire charging system to run one of those monsters..

    I'ver run tons of viar products over the last several years with great success. I havent had a chance to work with the 444's yet, but they look promising...and you cant beat the prices on them...
