DC AIR COMPRESSORS BRING AIR TO THE FIELD
OASIS MANUFACTURING claims that its XD2000 12v/24v DC Air Compressor is the most powerful DC compressor on the market today. The compressor's modified 5-hp motor is directly coupled to a twin-cylinder, 10-cu.-in. York compressor. It includes a low voltage cutoff protection circuit, which allows high performance without overloading the electric motor. It also uses a cooling fan to dramatically extend run time by reducing heat buildup. It's able to run a ½-in. impact wrench directly off the compressor and can be paired with a storage tank to boost capacity.
The compressor is 20 in. long, 7 in. wide and 10 in. high and weighs 60 lbs. The suggested retail price is $1,099. Contact Oasis Mfg., Dept. FIN, 22971 Triton Way, #F, Laguna Hills, CA 92653, 949/768-4311, visit www.oasismfg.com or www.freeproductinfo.net/fin, or circle 199.
ADJUSTABLE HIDE-AWAY HITCH
RECEIVER HITCH LEVELS LOADS FOR SAFER TRAILERING
THE TOW & STOW receiver hitch keeps the hitch out of the way until it's needed. But when rotated into place, its 5.5 in. of vertical travel and multiple balls allow it to handle varying trailering needs safely and efficiently.
The hitch is rotated into place from beneath the vehicle by pulling and replacing a pin, which also provides vertical adjustment in 1-in. increments. Pulling and replacing a pin also allows different balls to be rotated into place.
The black powder-coated Class IV (10,000-lb. GVW, 1,000-lb. tongue weight) hitch is available in models with a 6-, 8- or 10-in. drop with dual or triple ball configurations. The suggested retail price starts at $172. Contact B&W Custom Truck Beds Inc., Dept. FIN, Box 186, Humboldt, KS 66748, 800/248-6564, visit www.turnoverball.com or www.free productinfo.net/fin, or circle 198.
‘SNAP-COVER’ PRICE MAKES ROLL-UP AFFORDABLE
TRUXPORT, a soft, roll-up tonneau cover, is the newest addition to the TruXedo family of tonneau covers from Shur-Co.

The complete cover self-stores at the front of the bed, with no parts to remove. Adjustable tension control keeps fabric tight in any climate. A positive latching mechanism provides added security.
