My Bushranger is 15yrs old and been used a lot it's very reliable has never let me down so the saying goes. It still has the original wiring and 35amp fuse I have it mounted in a tool box and plumbed to an air tank switched ON/OFF from in the cab. The air filter is easy to clean just unscrews off the side of the head.I have seen numerous comments about the bushranger compressors living for years. Saw one post on another 4x4 forum where a guy said his was 18 years old.

Because of it's age I bought a cheap backup set it up the same plumbed into tank turns ON/OFF from in cab in a toolbox next to the Bushranger. It's a 110Lpm Rough Country the wiring burnt out pretty fast found it was rubbing on the armature when I stripped it down. Also the wiring is way to small looks about 25amp the compressor specs say it can draw 40amps don't know how they can get away ripping us off and risking the wiring catching fire so I replaced it with twin core 6mm. I didn't take it back because I had already modified it changing the air fittings and the base mounting brackets. The air filter is accessed by removing the head so I won't be mucking around doing that something I forgot to look at when buying it.
So just be wary when buying a cheapo and I would definitely upgrade the wiring because most of them use undersized cheap crap limiting it's ability to run at it's full capacity.
