    I suppose by now many  of us have noticed the free shipping and prices of the Yong Heng compressors on e-Bay have changed drastically.  It is hard, if not impossible to find one in the $250 + or – region with free shipping these days, like they were just a month or so ago.

    Guess all good things come to an end.  I can only hope those that buy at current prices are getting the newest and upgraded versions.

    I have a piston in my parts bid waiting to go in mine if it takes a turn for the worst.  I don't fill tanks other than those on my guns and never let the temperature go above 40C.  That may or may not be a saving grace.

    When people start buying Xisico and Umarex, the Yong Heng prices will come back down.

    The world has a problem right now.  Supply chains are getting disrupted and point source manufacturing is nearly stopped in many places.  Supply vs Demand.. Econ basics.

    Don't hesitate to buy a Yong Heng if you can find a good price on one.  I (and many others) have used them for over a year without issue.  Some have had problems with them, as people have had with Air Venturi, Hatsan, and even the vaunted Daystate.  ANYTHING can have a problem.  The Yong Heng has been, for it's price, well worth the money for quite a few people.

    I wonder when the Umarex ReadyAir will be available. For $500, considering what the YHs cost now, I'm sold.

    My YH has been going for well over 2-1/2 years now filling my (3) 30 min SCBA tanks with no problems. I believe the key is to keep it cool. I use lots of ice in the water bucket and my temps stay in the 42C to 45C range. I also only top my tanks off to 4000 – 4200 psi. I have, however, thought about buying some spare parts just in case.

    In China, the compressor is still available in the Yong Heng on-line shop and the auto-shut-off model is being sold at USD 150 which is the same as that two years ago when I bought mine. For this reason I am afraid the broken supply chain theory doesn't stand.  Something is discouraging people from shipping the compressor to US.

    Supply chain includes the shipment from China to the retailer.  There is a building resentment against the China Communist Party and their lies and obstruction over the Corona (Wuhan) virus.  There may not be a market for their products next year as a result.   Only time will tell.

    The $183 shipping might have something to do with it. It takes that $150 compressor and makes it a $333 compressor, and that's the "basic" version. About $410 shipped for the adjustable set point version.
