VIAIR 280C Air Compressor Kit | 28021


The 280C is the foundation of the VIAIR compressor line. (and of all 12 volt compressors if you ask us) This compressor delivers unparalleled reliability - after thousands sold, not a single one has come back for warranty. They aren't the fastest compressor on the market (if you want speed, check out the 400C!) but they are the best in their class. With this compressor you'll have no trouble filling a 5 gallon tank.

Viair "C" model compressors are intended to fill air tanks. They are not equipped with an on/off switch or pressure sensitive shutoff device of any kind. The use of a pressure switch and relay are recommended and required. All "C" model viair compressors (except certain 90 & 100 series units) are equipped with a stainless steel braided leader hose and a check valve to keep the compressor from restarting under pressure which can create an amp draw spike and can cause motor damage. Most Viair compressors are equipped with a thermal overload protector that will shut down the unit when overheated. When cool, the compressor will automatically restart as normal.
