Got my Ayrtekk Booster this morning. First fill on the Cricket

Hey, guys just thought this might be a little bit more info on the Ayrtekk for those interested. Mr Hollowpoint has the best video out there on explaining it and how to use it. I just made my pitiful little video in case anyone was concerned how it would work with fill reservoirs with restrictor valves like the Cricket has? Filled the Cricket like a champ. Maybe you can gain a little something from it?

It came extremely well packaged. Came with a set of directions for set up. I decided to use the two tank setup this morning, so I didn't use the Tee.

Did some scavenging out in my shed. Found an old plastic drink crate and some scrap wood and threw together a redneck portable fill station with two bottles and the booster. I've got a small compartment under the booster to store the regulator when not in use. It's in a paper sack in the third photo. Found some old straps and made a three point sling to lift and carry it with. She's a tad on the heavy side. Might invest in a small dolly later?

Thanks Joe, I was back and forth with a few emails from Mr Hollowpoint before I made the purchase. Then talking to Doug Russell over at Mad Dog Stocks, he said they had one they've been trying their best to make fail! LOL Said they even froze it in the freezer a couple times. LOL They are almost bullet proof! That sealed the deal for me. Doug is a pleasure to deal with.

    I've had mine since the end of last summer. I thought that I'd use it a lot more than I do, but I don't LOL

    The smallest hard case that I could find for it was a Pelican 1556. I think there was one smaller one that "might" have been able to fit everything, but I'm kind of regretting that I didn't go a different route with a bigger case, so I could keep it all connected.

    @campfussell, have you tried feeding yours air from a low PSI compressor? All that I have with mine is use it to fill my rifles as a booster with my Great White.

    I haven't tried mine with a compressor yet. I have so many SCBA tanks it's just easier to use those. I like your Pelican case idea!


     
    Oh man, Mike...hope you get the busted pipes fixed without too much trouble. It was 28 degrees here this morning and about 37 and dropping right now. I'm not getting any shooting done. It was sunny today, but just couldn't muster the nerve to get out in the cold wind.

    Peace and joint compound grease
