Post by: coatimundi01 on July 15, 2016, 06:30:16 PM
What's up everyone! Long time no see!!!

I just picked up a Viair 88p on Amazon Prime day. Anyone have one? Any long term/durability issues?

How much did you save? I don't have one.

It was 20% off so it ended up being $55 after tax. Not too bad.

I run 2, got them for almost the same price and installed them in an OBA system.  Have been running for over a year now and no issues so far.

I have a cheapo MV50 and it has been great. Its probably the best proven air compressor for the money. I have only seen the high power tanked compressors out perform it in reliability and longevity. I have not heard really anything good from Viar besides fantastic marketing and customer service.

I know Avi has dual Viar's but I filled my Xterra and Rob's in about the same time he filled his and I was running a lower PSI on that trip (15psi). You cant beat $55 for a Viar thats a great price but for $60 the MV50 is a superior compressor dead simple to use in the real world with proven performance.

I never had issues with a single compressor till I went to 34s.  It's amazing how much air they hold compared to a 32.  Viar lists these compressors at 1.47 CFM vs Superflows 2.54.  That said the Viar is a 20 amp draw and the superflow is 30.  Based on my existing wiring and relays I needed to stick around 20amps per circuit.  Also, Viar lists the operating temps up to 153, Superflows lists 140.  I had problems with my previous pumps overheating, I installed a fan as well, but was still worried about overheating.  I got Viars mostly for the name, and hopefully for reliability, so far so good.
