IN ISSUE THREE WE REVIEWED THE POWERFUL CKMP12 AIR COMPRESSOR FROM ARB. IN THIS ISSUE WE TAKE A LOOK AT THE NEW ARB AIR 601 TYRE INFLATOR A PERFECT COMPLIMENT TO THE COMPRESSOR.

Keeping accurate tire pressure is a necessity for good fuel economy, prolonged tire life and maximum traction off road. The new ARB Digital Tire Inflator Gauge, provides accurate readings and inflation for your next 4WD adventure.


An accurate air pressure gauge and tire inflation equipment in your vehicle is a necessity for any four wheel enthusiast. Running the correct tire pressures for different situations and or vehicle load changes is an extremely simple operation with its large, blue backlight display, thumb operation inflator button and simple deflator bleed button.


The 23.5 inch dual swivel PVC coated braided hose and clip-on air chuck eliminates the need to bend over while airing up at the end of a long day on the trail and the backlight ensures you know the exact pressures no matter if it is day or night when you are airing up.

Apparently over a year of R&D went into making this inflator and it shows. The display shows bar and PSI , the backlighting allows for easy use at night. The inflator automatically activates when it senses air pressure on the hose. It is very robustly made with large well made and easy to hold and attach components. Two AAA batteries should give you over 200 hours of use.

Using this inflator along with a high quality compressor like the CKMP12 (also from ARB- see our review in Issue Three) should make adjusting your tyre pressure for varying terrain and surfaces very quick and painless. Highly recommended.
