The Sparmax Beetle Kit includes:

With its simple and sleek appearance, the Sparmax Beetle compressor is compact and light, yet powerful for its size. The unit is pressure adjustable and incorporates the latest user-friendly feature: the Patented Smart-Stop (see details below).

The Beetle’s DC motor allows for universal use from 100V-240V (supplied with UK 3 pin plug). With optional Rechargeable Battery Pack, the compact size Beetle enables users to use on-the-go. Operating at a quiet level is a hallmark of this unit, for a comparison, you can see the results below:

  • 10 Decibels = a pin drop
  • 20 Decibels = rustling leaves
  • 30 Decibels = whispers
  • 40 Decibels = the Beetle compressor!
  • Not bad for a piece of machinery!

The Beetle's compact size makes it ideal for those who require to be mobile or have space limitations.

The Sparmax MAX-4 airbrush included in this kit provides exceptional performance with even the smallest compressors because it atomises well at low pressures. It has a 0.4mm needle and nozzle combination for general purpose, high paint flow spraying and wider spray patterns. The 0.4mm nozzle is ideal when spraying thicker or heavier paints whilst still obtaining a fine level of detail.

The Sparmax Beetle Kit is excellent for these applications:

  • Nail Art
  • Cosmetics and Body Art
  • Model Painting
  • Cake Decorating
  • Hobby and Craft
  • Art & Graphics

The Smart-Stop function of the Beetle is compatible with most airbrushes in the market. In exceptional cases of incompatibility with Smart-Stop, it can still be operated manually via the power switch, offering a compressor that is compact, quiet and powerful.

The Smart-Stop operates by detecting the presence of an airbrush in the airbrush holder. It pauses the compressor when the airbrush is placed into its holder and restarts it when it is taken off again. Pistol trigger & bottom fed airbrushes may not be compatible due to the trigger or bottle preventing engagement in the airbrush holder.

The Sparmax Beetle features:

  • Low maintenance, oil-less single piston air compressor
  • Air flow: 14 lpm (0.49 cfm) at open flow, 6 lpm (0.21 cfm) 10 psi.
  • Maximum working pressure from 0 psi to 30 psi
  • Smart-Stop
  • 1/8" BSP outlet on compressor
  • Detachable power lead / plug
  • 4M clear coiled hose (1/8" outlet)
  • Pressure Adjuster
  • Handle with built in airbrush holder
  • Size: L12.4 x W10 x H11.4 cm (4.8" x 3.9" x 4.5")
