Masterflow manufacturers a ton of air compressors every year. These 12 volt tire inflators inflate flat tires in minutes and save the day, or are used to air up and air down on the off road trail. Regardless of how or how often they’re used, most of these air compressors are bought and used for years to come.
On occasion, we do receive returned air compressors. The reasons for the returns are just as varied as their uses. Some are still in the unopened box. Maybe they were returned because they were a gift (a great gift idea BTW). Others were barely used and are neatly packed and returned in their original packaging.
We certainly can’t make sense of why someone would return such a useful and quality built product, but hey, it happens. Masterflow could easily throw these into the air compressor graveyard, and get back to manufacturing more compressors, but why? While we care about delivering quality air inflation solutions and accessories, we also care about our planet.
22 million tons of recyclable materials end up being collected as trash every year*. We don’t want to see perfectly good Masterflow 12 volt air compressors in those piles! Masterflow has implemented an innovative way to do our share in helping transition and maintain a sustainable, low-carbon future for our planet.
Our Whirlwind Refurbishing Program (WRP) saves thousands of 12 Volt Air compressor hoses and accessories from landfills and recycling plants. We put perfectly good, working air compressors back in service that otherwise would have been taking up space in landfills.
A refurbished unit is a great value when you buy from Masterflow direct. Masterflow technicians inspect and test each air compressor and follow strict requirements to ensure you receive a high quality, working, refurbished 12-volt air compressor furnished with original manufacturer Masterflow hoses and accessories.
Not only are you saving a little money and getting a top notch piece of equipment, you can also feel really good about yourself, that you helped reduce waste worldwide. Yay you!
Having a flat tire is often one of the main inconveniences of driving. Yes, we have all been there. Although none of us likes getting a flat, nearly all drives like the opportunity to do a little detective work and solve the apparent mystery of the missing air!
Tires are probably the most important parts of a safe vehicle. This is mainly because the tires are the only part of your car that touches the roadway. Tires directly impact your car handling, braking, ride, and most importantly safety.
Tires are easily one of the most crucial parts of your car. However, many drivers don’t give them the attention they deserve. Keep in mind that poorly maintained tires are likely to lead to deadly or dangerous accidents and can have a negative impact on the vehicle’s handling.
I ordered the MF-1040 compressor and I am very happy with it. I tried it out and it works fine. I like the coiled hose that allows it to be extended, and I love the bag that was included and makes it easy to store in my trunk. The bonus was that the shipping was unbelievably fast. Thanks!
