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!

Dynamite tire inflator

Received the unit and took it moose hunting. Great unit very pleased.

Great setup

I like the way this is package and how it's convenient to store additional tools. Haven't had an opportunity to use it much but seemed to work fine. The second time I went to turn it on it wouldn't start turned out to be a bad fuse I recommend anybody purchasing one of these to have some extra fuses on hand. Item was packaged well and delivered promptly.

Seems to work great

Only used it once, but it seems to work well. I like the air hose is straight and not a curly-Q like a lot of the other ones. I also like that the air fitting from the unit to the hose is standard with other air hoses. Wish the hose had a quick disconnect at the other end where the tire inflator is. Seems pretty rugged. Overall very happy with the purchase!
