    UPS just delivered my prize after a couple of delays. I had been talking with AOA since late October to try to schedule a date for them to deliver it with their van on a day that we have an Air Gun Shoot at our club range. I thought it would be great if our members could see and use their different airguns. We had scheduled 11/30 but a conflict came up on their side and it had to be cancelled. I asked them to ship it so I can put it to use. They are going to try and reschedule a visit after the first of the year. Tomorrow I’ll set it up and fill my 90 C.I. and 75 cubic foot tanks and give you an update with pictures. It seems like it will be pretty easy to operate. Thanks AOA and AirGun  Nation!

    Pictures:

    I’ve used it twice to fill my 75 cubic foot Omega tank and once to fill my 90 cubic inch Air Venturi. I watched AOA’s online video a couple of times to feel comfortable with the set up. Very easy. I set the bleed to 10 minutes and the fill shut off to 300 Bar and everything worked like it was supposed to. When it bleeds, I jump and run over to check on it. I guess I’ll get used to it. My wife said its smaller than she thought it would be. I’m PUMPED!

    It is fairly noisy. I’d compare it to a washing machine and dryer running at the same time. Mine is in an attached garage and when I’m in the house and when it turns off, I can tell if everything else is quiet.

I guess it depends on your washer and dryer. Mine are whisper quiet, ha ha. How long does it take to fill your tank?

    thanks,

    Most of your maintenance is going to deal with your grease port.  Make sure to turn grease knob 2 revolutions, clockwise at least every 4 hours of run time, and fill using included grease syringe when knob will no longer turn.  If you don’t live in a very humid environment you can set timer to bleed every 25 minutes or so.  This will result in a faster fill time, since you will not be continually  re-pressurizing hose.  I’ve had mine since 2015 and couldn’t live without it. Have fun!

    Thanks for the info everybody. My tank fills from 3000 psi to 4500 in about 1 hour. I filled a friends 88 cu. ft. tank that was at 2600 psi to 4500 in about  1 hour and 15 minutes.
