Word of warning on the ebay store "auto parts sally"--

I bought the same compressor from them months ago, it arrived completely bent and broken, missing parts, and all messed up. I REALLY had to fight with them to make it right. Months later (after a ton of emails/calls/fighting) they finally sent me another compressor, which works OK, but is still really beat up and obviously used (which is a real bummer because i was bidding on a unit described as being brand new).

You mileage may vary, just wanted to give you all a heads up.
It will be interesting to see how it works out then.
I love a good fight!!

Picked up an MF1050 from Pep Boys ($6?.00), mounted it under the hood... works great so far.

CostCo occaisionally carries the same MV50s that Pep Boys and 4Wheel Parts carry. They do well at inflation time. Checkers used to carry them. They are cheap but are a good bang for the buck when purchased new.

comparison tests:
air compressor test

Superflow MV-50

Tire Inflator Comparison


This is exactly what I have - purchased from Pep Boys. It works fantastic IMO.

Just won a bid on the Tsunami MF 1050 compressor for $37.50 delivered ! The Ebay store I won it from has tons of them without boxes, claim they are new and are guaranteed to work fine. I will add to this post when I receive it with a review (whether or not it works).

eBay Store - Auto Parts Sally: 50 Series Compressors: QMAXX HIGH VOLUME AIR COMPRESSOR

"Without boxes" sometimes means it's salvaged mechandise. Usually the boxes get water damage from a fire and look terrible. Repackaging is very expensive so it's cheaper for an insurance company to sell to a salvor.

2008 VDB, 4x4, Auto, Off-Road Package, Demello sliders, ToyTec/OME lift with Bilstein 5100's, Ricochet skids, All-Pro front and rear bumpers, OEM steelies with tires by www.treadwright.com, BajaRack, BlitzPro LED's

Thats the impression I got when bidding. I'll let everyone know how it turns out.

Re: Tsunami MF 1050 compressors on Ebay (CHEAP)

I have the same compressor, and I think I am on my 3rd or 4th one thanks to Costco's return policy

I use it to fill my air tank at 120psi, so I think that is why the first couple failed. Now I put a one way valve at the exit so there won't be as much back pressure going into the compressor. My last one is still going strong even after 7 months
