I like my Dewalt as it shares batteries with my drill/driver.

Viair. I have the 450P. Pricey but good. It's rated at 100% duty cycle up to 100PSI (which means you can run it for a long time without having to stop it to cool).




Thus the metric system did not really catch on in the States, unless you count the increasing popularity of the nine-millimeter bullet.

VIAIR.

I have the VIAIR 87P for about 5 years now and it has performed with excellence helping me and other people needing help without fail.

It outlasted all of the cheapie plastic ones and is much faster.

VIAIR makes a lot of different models, but here is a LINK to the 87P on Amazon

Buy this in faith, it will do a great job for you.

I bought this one from Lowes about 10 years ago and it works great.

Does that Dewalt fill pretty fast or does it take longer as compared to a plug in. I think having no cord would be kind of nice and I have plenty of those batteries so I was wondering.

They may be a bit dated (~3 years old) but Project Farm has a couple Youtube videos on these. One for 12V corded I think and one battery powered.

I’d go with the VIAIR 87P OKCGene mentioned for a passenger car. It’s only good for 60psi though, so if you want to inflate bike tires step up to the 88P which is good for 120psi.

For my truck and fifth wheel, I went with a 400P VIAIR which has run without issue for six years. It’ll run for 20 minutes, but then needs to cool for 40. It’s rated for 2.3CFM over the 1.8CFM for 450P. That means it’ll fill tires faster in the first 20 minutes than the 450P. Taking my rear tires from 60psi to 80psi takes a minute and a half or so per tire. Topping of the 110psi tires on the trailer doesn’t take much time either. In other words, the 33% duty cycle at 100psi has never been a limitation for me.

ARB makes a 12 volt corded unit mounted in a tool box that has all the fittings/hose.

The best one I've used so far is the Milwaukee M18 Inflator

This is kind of a "goldilocks" solution if you're not offroading.

Just googled that $118 seems a bit steep for it. Amazon carries a $40 one that for my super limited need for one might be a better value.

Interesting, I'll have to look into both of those options.

It is pretty fast, it takes roughly 30 sec to a minute to add 3-5 lbs. . I use it for our travel trailer and tow vehicle. As long as the pressures are close I can do eight tires with battery to spare. You can run it on the 20v battery, 12v socket, and I got an ac to 12v adapter so I can run it off a wall socket as well.

I seem to recall that I got it on sale for a bit less. It is really nice to have the battery option when dealing with the trailer tires.

I had but sold, looking back I never should have, a factory unit from a BMW X5 SUV. That thing was beautifully made and I bet a expensive option. Bought it new at a Flea Market. I used it twice prior to selling to a customer who needed one. If I ever get to a parts yard again, I will scour through the BMWs to find another. Seen the same pump on Ebay.

I use a SuperFlow HV-35 that I keep in the trunk. It's not that fast but super compact.
I would have opted for the larger models if I was expecting to use it frequently.

There's a Harbor Freight compressor on sale for $25 that seemed to do well in the Project Farm tests.
