Power Tank Air Tool Use

On this page, you will find handy charts showing you how much performance you should expect from your Power Tank based on the task at hand and the size of your Power Tank.

This first Tire Air Up chart tells you how fast a Power Tank will air up YOUR tires and how many of them it will inflate based on the various Power Tank sizes. You'll notice that, unlike compressors, all Power Tanks regardless of their size, inflate at the same rate of speed.

First, locate your tire size in the left column. Then determine how much air you are adding from trail pressure to street pressure and find your section along the top row. Each section (10, 20, 30 psi) shows your air up time and how many tires you can fill based on your Power Tank size. 

If you add 10 psi If you add 20 psi If you add 30 psi
