Got my Projecta in Halls Creek in 2009. My previous single piston compressor had just died inflating the tyres on the Jeep and camper after coming out of the Bungle Bungles. I now carry it in an Irwin Bag and use a 3/8" compressor hose but still have the original of both. Changing both for convenience. It still works well, I was mucking around inflating my exhaust jack with it on the weekend. Its a more controlled lift. Actually the original hose worked better for air jack inflation as it screws on to the valve(no need to be at the bag while inflating).
