    Default Cairns Air Packs?

    I know these are long out of production but i just aquired two of them, complete. They seem to work fine. Both in decent shape. Tanks need hydro tests. In any event, before i start searching out anybody who might want them complete, any departments need them for spare parts?

    Anybody have an input on these packs as far as quality? What they are worth in good shape?

    No longer legal to use so the need for parts is kind of a moot point. T.C.

    Issue with NFPA approval? And if it's an NFPA issue, could these still be used in an industrial application? I am just trying to find a home for them. I have no use for them at all.

    Relying on MY memory which is a BAD idea.Support for these packs STOPPED Dec 09 as I remember. As a non supported unit they are no longer Compliant.Ad naseum.Let me try to find the PROPER info. I think because of the non support you can't use them period but I'm no labor lawyer. T.C.

    Well i guess they are popular to some people. I put them both up on Ebay this afternoon at a "BuyItNow" price i thought was high at $189.00 plus $50.00 shipping. They sold in 2 hours. I even made it clear i make no guarantees they even work and to use at your own risk.

    I'm sorry i did not list them higher.
