Technology is a wonderful thing, and any time that it can benefit the needs of mini-truckers, you can bet that MT will be there to capture it on film. After years of watching mini-truckers continuously fry alternators and burn up air lines and old electric compressors, Air Lift has brought us its Air Commander engine-driven air compressor. With the Air Commander installed on your mini, you bypass all of the headaches associated with running electric air compressors. The Air Commander delivers more than 9 cfm of air when turned at an engine speed of 3,000 rpm; that equates to filling up a 3-gallon air tank in seconds, not minutes. Even at idle, the Air Commander will fill a 3-gallon tank to 145 psi in less than a minute, besting all but the largest of electric air compressors. In this story, we watched as the crew from Traders 2K installed the Air Commander on a '96 Chevy S-10 that was powered by the 2.2L four-cylinder engine. The install took less than an hour, and when Traders finished, we had a limitless supply of compressed air for the suspension system on our S-10.
