It has filters?

 

They are of good quality? I.e doesn't need to be replaced only washed? 

 

I have given the guy in sales via email my credit card number to process the payment (I don't normally like doing this) 

 

 

Just a small one at the bottom. You just pull it out, give it a quick rinse and dry. Easy.

No not at all in the first email I sent I got a quick reply the guy was more then happy to and then gave

 

me a list of shipping options.

 

I think it will be money well spent. so many good reviews on amazon.

 

The only confusing thing is on the Aussie site it say's 1 year warranty but on the box and website of the USA site it say's 5 year warranty.

I got sick of cleaning out my tower all the time, so in December 2013 I purchased an Intel NUC - now the only thing I have to dust is the top of it after a few weeks of sitting on my desk

I didn't notice that about the warranty. You could query them about it, I would be interested to hear what the story is...

Regarding links to "Air Pig"
The two biggest auto store in NZ does not seems to list them on web site
But am sure I bought it from one of them.
You can try asking them, as it is not a popular item, am sure I got them for region of NZD40, but it was a few years ago.

But a hunt around on the web gave me these links

Not terribly portable.  The 40L and 10gal are about the same size.  14kg in weight, and something like 36cm diameter x 40cm long.  I guess you at least wouldn't need to recharge it too often, but this is nothing like one of those aerosol blowers.  Nothing at all.

 

The 16L one on TradeMe is more sensible, but postage is high — especially for my SI Rural address.  I actually looked in Blenheim Engineering yesterday, and things looked priced on the high side (compared to SuperCheap or Repco) and too big for convenient use.   What I'd really like is a vessel/tank about the size of a large aerosol, but able to take more pressure.

 

Hey, I might have been underestimating those cans.  This one needed 350PSI before it burst.

Those things are expensive and too big

 

and they are almost as costly as some air compressors.
