    Nice quick overview.  I like the upgrades on v 2.0.  not just the under glow, the all in one unit is handiier than the v1.0.  

     

    Enjoy it!

    Hi Bob.                                  

           I have the Benjamin traveler and it puts out a lot of moisture so I bought the gold filter put it on to fill my streamline while it works well the gold filter over doubled the run time to fill the streamline I think I will order the smaller black filter also now when my gun is full I unplug the air line from the compressor then turn it back on for a second to blow out the rest of the moisture .

    Good quick review… post up again after you’ve use it a while, maybe after a dozen or so fills?

    I'll definitely make an update video after I get some time and experience with it.

    Nice vid!    I wanna look at the guts. Wonder if this and the Bengi are the same horse with a different paint job??

    Well, I hoped the male foster fitting in the parts bag was so you could attach a longer hose to the hose that came with the compressor…..it's not.

    So I have a male-to-male adapter ordered from PA.  This way I can connect the hose I use with my CF tank to the hose on the compressor, and then the gun won't have to be so close to the compressor during a fill.

    Curious, Mr Bob O, if before you bought this compressor if you already had another compressor, or just got your tanks refilled elsewhere. What I’m highly assuming, is because of the nature of your hunts around farms and such, you’re probably mobile a lot, like in a truck or a side by side UTV, and this here baby you just bought is your compressor on wheels. Am I correct in that assumption? 

    Im thinking if it was me in your shoes, and I had all granted permission from nearby farmers, I’d be on a side by side with that compressor bolted(wing nut, so ease of removal)down in the passenger seat floor, care free of any air run out. Mr Exterminator on wheels.

    I apologize if I was living my dream thru you, lol

    Just wanted to add, and I apologize now for deterring from your new compressor, but my imagination is running wild….you know how 4×4 guys carry an auxiliary air tank bolted to the underside of their truck or Jeep beds? For airing up tires? I wonder if anyone has ever done anything like that, mainly for your type of hunting, which I’m assuming is local and no driving on highways? 

    A long time ago one of my students welded up a schedule 80 steel, 6” round bumper on his off road rig, and that was his air tank. 6” round x 5’ in length can hold a lot of air.

    Br,

    I have a 74 cubic foot tank that I've been using since about April of last year.  A former coworker fills the tank for me and at first I was only getting it filled about once every three to four weeks. 

    Then when I started shooting a lot over the chronograph and at the range, I ended up needing a fill every week.  Being my friend doesn't charge me and won't take any money or gifts, I feel a little bit guilty going to him so often.

    so my idea for the compressor was that I would use it at home to fill up my guns before heading out and then also use it at the range.  If I save the tank for just using in the field I should be able to go back to one month intervals before needing it filled.

    One farm I go to, the farmer insisted that I use his ATV and Polaris Ranger to get anywhere on his property I need to go.  It's pretty awesome.

    Did my first maintenance tonight, just three drops of oil.

    Filled the Crown five times while doing chronograph work.  If it wasn't for the compressor, I'd have used up most of the top end capacity of my tank.

    So glad I got the compressor and hope it keeps going strong.

    🙂

    Bob does that come with a built in transformer so you can go to 120v? Then back to 12v?

    Yes.  It has cables for 12V battery connection and they plug into a separate DC port.

    Probably don't want both plugged in at the same time.

    I don't mean to hijack your thread here Bob, but I figure this is probably a good place to aggregate feedback on these new compressors. So I thought I'd toss in my 2c.

    I too picked up a Nomad II compressor. Not enough miles on the thing to really give a full report either, however so far after a couple fills I'm extremely pleased. It certainly feels like a big upgrade from my Yong Heng. My bullet points on why I like it are as follows:

    -It seems reliable enough that I'd be willing to let it fill next to me while I work on something else, rather than the Yong Heng which I hover over while wearing eye and ear protection for concern it'll do something dramatic. 

    -Quietness. It isn't silent by any stretch, but it is quiet enough that you don't need earpro and clean enough you don't want to relegate it to the garage/workshop. 

    -I'm also a big fan of how it all fits in its snug little carrying case so when you travel with your airguns, you don't have to drain and pack up all kinds of coolant hoses and such. It is compact, small, and light. 

     

    All in all if it proves to be reliable, and that is a BIG if, I can certainly imagine loving this compressor. Even if I upgrade at some point to something like a big Coltri/Daystate for faster fills of bigger tanks, I would still keep one of these around because it is just so darn convenient to travel with. I don't mean to come off all fanboy here, but so far I am pleased with the concept/function and am hopeful it is sufficiently reliable and long lasting to be a winner.
