My little 12v tyre pump is on its last legs, supprised it lasted this long.

Any reccomendations on a new one?

Id rather go more heavy duty, so maybe one that clips to battery rather than fag lighter

T max without a doubt the only proper heavy duty one I have ever seen
Will tractor and dumper tyres no problem
Takes a while but will get an hgv Tyre up enough to get home

Although depending on your batties DeWalt now do a cordless compressor
And Makita an 18v Tyre inflator but not used either

Second that for t-Maxx👍.
Mine lives in my truck 24/7.
We have a DeWalt cordless which is 👌👌 but not cheap...best option for true mobile compressor I've ever seen.

I prefer the idea of a 12v one that connects to battery.

The cordless look good but i know my luck and id gaurentee that id be stuck with no charge in the battery.

Don't complain - suggest what's better
I have one of these:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00K30NYHS/ref=cm_sw_r_em_tai_c_44JHEbTS15PHQ
expensive, but very good. I had a valve problem on my Menzi A61 and one of the tyres went down to virtually zero pressure , just the side walls holding it up. I didn’t for a moment think this would pump it right up, but it did it no problem. Took a little while as there is a huge volume of air, but it kept going fine.

Any of these good for doing trailer tyres at 90 psi?

pretty sure my Britpart one is too ... so is the Katsu .....

"Product description
It is a high quality 2 cylinder which can inflate cars, vans and even trucks wheels
Powerful motor 50Amp.
Max Pressure 150PSI.
Max Air Flow: 150 L/Min"


can't see it giving 5.28 CuFt/min though .... But STBC :rolleyes: :unsure:

the Britpart one doesn't take long to blow a trailer tyre to 40psi and it's only single cylinder

Tried my compressor the other week and it's just not man enough, 90 is near enough the limit plus you have to expell air as the working pressure to pump isnt large enough without emptying the tank down for the motor to kick back in

Yes, the one I posted does and as it is twin pumps rather than the single like the Britpart it is twice as fast, although more expensive to purchase.
48 quid from my link above Gra

Ive gone for one of those in your link, not sure when itll arrive but worth a go at 48 squids

be interested to hear what it's like, but Gra rates 'em ...... late birthday prezzie for Josh perhaps :rolleyes:

Has it arrived? Any good?
I'm fed up dragging my 50l compressor round the front to pump up tyres.
Also what about jump packs, its sort of related. Got a powered cool box for my lunch the other day but don't want to flatten car battery.
Treating myself to a few goodies because I sold my last motorbike a few days ago :cry:

Aims are usually pretty quick with dispatching orders so I'd imagine he's had it a while now
