Pros:Great brilliant blue paint job and 125 psi maximum recommended capacity

Cons:None

The Bottom Line: The KT0700 7 gallon air tank is a necessity for any off roader; do not get stranded without air!


Ask any off roader who has 33" or taller tires and they will tell you that they own a portable air tank.  An air tank allows you to "air down" your tires to get more traction through a rough spot on the beach or on a muddy trail.

I once got my Jeep stuck on a beach in Destin, Florida because I drove through a patch of soft dry sand.  Normally, you would not air down your tires because it prevents you from driving home at a speed greater than 15 mph.  However, since I had my tank onboard, I took the tires down to 10 PSI.  Reducing the pressure gave me a wider contact patch in the sand to give the inline 6 cylinder a chance to turn up the torque without spinning the tires.  After I got back in the Jeep TJ , I literally walked my Jeep out of the sand.  Coasted a few feet down and used the air tank to top off all my 33" tires to 30 PSI so that I could limp home.

The tank is basically a cylinder 32" in diameter and 21" long.  The tank weighs about 25 lbs and is even heavier when filled.  A brilliant blue paint has been applied that makes the tank easy to spot in the workshop.  Two metal feet are on the bottom of the tank to keep it securely on the ground.  The top of the tank features a sweep gauge ranging from 0 to 160 psi.  The gauge is attached to a valve stem that features a red plastic butterfly nut one side and the air hose on the other.  Opening the value releases pressure and closing the valve shuts off the pressure.  In the closed position, you can then fill the tank. 

I use my Campbell Hausfeld FP2048 2 Gallon Air Compressor to fill this tank.  A complete fill takes approximately 15 minutes to reach 95 PSI. 

Take extreme caution that you do not overfill this tank.  125 PSI or greater is very dangerous especially if driven around in a car with passengers.

Summary
I am happy with my air tank and gladly recommend this product to anyone who needs one.  The tank is now over eight years old and still holding a charge as if it were brand new.  When I bought my tank, I only paid $20 for it but today you can expect to pay over $40 for the same product.   Yet even at this higher cost, it is still worth it for the convenience it provides.
