ARB 12V Twin Compressor

ARB 12V Twin Compressor; heavy-duty air power in a compact package

ARB USA’s super performance 12V compressor sets a new performance bar for on-board/underhood portable air systems.

ARB’s CKMTA12, originally developed for the U.S. Army for rapid inflation of large tires as well as the high volume air needs of most air powered tools,  is a world class recreational product designed and built to commercial/industrial standards to survive harsh and demanding outback conditions.  

The  twin-cylinder 12-volt (also available in 24V) compressors are available as a portable unit in a case, or as a vehicle mounted model.

It’s small enough to fit into side tool boxes or under seats. (We installed one in the Project Super Crew’s bed side toolbox.)


  • Ultra compact twin motor, dual cylinder design makes this the highest flowing portable compressor of its size on the market at 174LPM[6.16CFM]
  • Integrated aluminium air tank and pressure switch regulates pressure between 930kPa [135PSI] and 1030kPa [150PSI] which is suited to most air powered tools.
  • Mounted in a waterproof carry case constructed from a durable impact resistant polymer. The carry case has convenient compartments for storing the air hose and other compressor accessories.
  • Ducted IP55 sealed brushed DC cooling fan and anodized aluminium motor mounting brackets effectively dissipate
