ARB's new CKMTA12 and CKMTA24 twin on-board compressor kits were designed to fill the market need for a compact sized yet high-volume compressed air source to suit the high volume airflow needs of most air powered tools, and also to suit the actuation and control needs of the ARB Air Locker, and the harsh and demanding environment of the ARB Air Locker user.


This air compressor will also require air manifold 171503 to use 2 ARB Air Lockers, inflate tires with a 171302 Pump Up Kit and run even faster when paired with a 171501 1 gallon air tank

This compact vehicle mounted compressor has been designed to do everything!


Activate your ARB Air Locking Differentials, air up a 35" tire in less than a minute and run air tools.  This 100% duty cycle, 6.16 cfm compressor is built to support all of your compressed air needs.


  • Pneumatic supply and electrical control for ARB Air Locker(s). (Air Locker Manifold Kit #171503 required)
  • Rapid inflation of small, medium and large tires
  • Air tools rated up to 85LPM [3CFM] @ 6Bar [90PSI] continuous supply
  • Air tools rated higher than 85LPM [3CFM] @ 6Bar [90PSI] using an optional air tank suitable to the run time requirements

*Many products will require the use of a direct shipping quote from one of our CSR agents due to new DIM weights and measure changes as of Jan 10th, 2018 from major carriers.

Packages greater than a square cubic foot are now required to use a “volumetric weight” based upon length, width, height of a package from most carriers which alters actual weights. Oversized / Unique shaped packages are most affected and may not apply to your specific purchase(s). However, IN ORDER to save you, the customer, shipping costs, associated fees, and to keep product costs down, we are taking action to give direct shipping quotes based upon delivery methods available. Your full name and email address, required in the checkout, is so we can offer you a shipping quote. Your item(s) will NOT ship without communication from our CSR agents.
