Finish customizing your vehicle and prepare for the worst with this portable air compressor from ARB. Designed to be the most compact system, while still offering up more air power than anything in it's class, the CKMP12 is a must have.

  • Rapid inflation of small, medium, large, and over-sized tires
  • Inflates sporting and camping goods

The CKMP12 utilizes ARB's bread and butter on-board air compressor system with slight modifications to allow better heat dissipation. The portable system also comes standard with everything you need to keep your tires filled as well as attachments to inflate sporting and camping goods.  Designed to last, the CKMP12 has an integrated pressure switch that regulates pressure from 75psi to 105psi. This means you'll not have to worry about the CKMP12 wearing out from extended use, it runs only when required to do so.

Unlike others on the market the CKMP12 comes with everything you need in one conveniently packed box. Set up is quick, just grab the shatterproof carry case from your ideal storage location, open the enlarged latches (they wont ware or become loose with time, and can easily be opened while wearing gloves!), run the 7' of cables to your battery and connect with the alligator clips. Whether you're filling tires or using an air powered tool, the 20' heavy duty air line means less fiddling, and more doing. The hose couplings are corrosion resistant and designed with one-handed quick connections that fit most U.S. industrial standard air fittings.

Kit Includes:

  • Fully assembled and performance tested air compressor and air tank mounted into a water proof carry case.
  • OEM quality illuminated compressor isolating switch.
  • High quality wiring loom with automotive grade alligator clamp type battery contacts, and a pressure switch driven automotive relay control circuit.
  • Splash resistant air filter with washable high-flow sintered bronze filter cartridge
  • 6 meter [20 ft] long high quality abrasion and heat resistant air hose with male to female couplings.
  • Hose couplings are specially designed corrosion resistant, one-handed (push-lock) quick connect type to suit US industrial standard air fittings
  • Inflation accessories kit including high-flow tire filler attachment (US industrial standard) with integral stop-valve
  • A Schrader valve to US industrial standard adapter, and extra nozzle attachments for inflating items such as sports balls, air mattresses, etc
  • Comprehensive photo illustrated operating instructions

  • Fully serviceable with all replacement parts available.
  • Constructed primarily of light weight, high strength engineering grade materials, including military and aerospace standard components.

  • Compressor pistons are equipped with high shock rated roller bearing.
  • High density and high flow washable sintered bronze air filter element.
  • Motors are thermal cut-out protected against damage caused by extreme temperature use.
