6V to ARB compressor

First, if you put 6V to an ARB compressor would you expect it to run poorly or not at all?

I was wheeling this weekend and got an opportunity to use my lockers. Well, tried, but the compressor wouldn't come on. I did a little bit of troubleshooting on the trail, and what I found was everything checked out ok - switches, relay, inline fuse, but was only getting 6V to the compressor. This is with the stock ARB wiring harness. Didn't want to hold anyone up so I moved on, but would like to try figure out why it's not working.

Oh, at the time I couldn't find my wire to test running 12V to the ARB (and my stupid choice of mounting location makes it really hard to do). Will do that next time I have the chance, but expect the motor will be fine.
