The system that Costco has is made by Branick. The local Costco has a
BR-350. You can AltaVista that and see a price of around $5000. They
probably paid less. One advantage them offering to fill members tires for
free is that people might actually take them up on it, and what they are
putting in is dry - be it air, nitrogen, CO2, or Argon. This is much better
than using those compressors on a post at the gas stations. There's no
moisture separator on them, and I've been amazed how much water comes out of
the hose when you squeeze the handle. Water in tire assemblies isn't good.
I guess I can breath a sigh of relief. Today I got a letter from them
again reminding me about how it was recommended .. He said it will
improve my pick up, & I told him my only complaint is the V6 has a bit
more pick up than necessary as it is :)
Well I should check out at my local Costco wholesale whether they
offer it too.. I have the membership as it is so might as well take
advantage of fringe benefits ...
