Ozito CO2 Power System

Unread postAuthor: integral » Sat Aug 25, 2007 10:31 pm

Hey guys haven't dropped in for a while with all my school work limiting my spudding activities. Just saw this in the bunnings' catalogue and don't know if anyone has already scoped it out:

http://www.ozito.com.au/productinfo.aspx?prodid=OZCO2RKA

From what I can see, this is a very viable solution to our Aussie-oba-problems, packaged with everything one would ever need for spudgun applications. Retail at bunnings for approx 140 AUD, imo quite a sound investiment (althought I haven't seen the prices for replacement cylinders).

its definitely worth the money. i don't know about that one in particular but i have to say my 5lb reg'ed co2 set up is probably one of the better investments i have made. after you get over the system price its like $15 to fill my tank and i can get thousands of rounds out of my vortex or hundreds of shoots with my coaxials and ghetto paintball guns. i mean $15 and you don't and you can fire any cannon hundreds of times with out physical labor (bike pump)

Mike, he's an Aussie, meaning the currecny is different, $140AU is like $110US, also Aussie doesn't have a Lowes.

This isn't relating to the product, but to the manufacturer. I have an Ozito dremmel tool. It is great, was very cheap, the only problem i have had with it is the mechanism to stop the armature turning broke, so i just use pliers to hold it while i unscrew the chuck. The dremmel has taken alot of stress from an hour of sanding pvc to cutting and grinding carbon steel sheet to make lockpicks to cutting, grinding anything i could find, it did it with ease.

If the dremmel says anything about the companies quality i would say it would be a high quality product at a very reasonable price.

Presumably you refill the same cylinder - for the price, it seems very worthwhile as a portable system.

The reason I posted this tank setup was because of the limited options we aussies have when it comes to on-board air. And considering that it comes with its own reg and carry rig, personally I think its a great buy.

Just wanted to give all the pneumatic aussies here another idea on going mobile =P

The tanks are perfectly safe to store indoors. The only thing that can go wrong is if they get too hot and the burst disc ruptures, thus relieving the pressure. Not a big deal, it won't hurt anyone, and new discs are readily available.

Those tanks are just basic 20oz paintball tanks here in the states. If they sell that kind of stuff, it shouldn't be hard to get.
It is best to have at least one spare tank. Wether it's propane, CO2 or gas for a welder, it's always nice not having to quit early to refill your tank.
