An entry-level workhorse of a compressor, the Viair 280C Air Compressor delivers world-class performance at an affordable price. Able to easily run 150 PSI with a 2.5-gallon tank, the Viair 280C is a solid choice for any medium-duty pneumatic use, such as air lockers and emergency tire inflation. The Viair 280C provides 1.59 CFM and will recharge a 2.5-gallon tank from 110-150 PSI in only 1-minute and 36-seconds while only pulling 19 amps from the battery.

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.
