Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RR Easy inflation
The 120 volt inflator makes it very easy to check car tire pressures at home. It also makes bike tires easy to service.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 59Rambler Works good
It's not as strong as my old sears unit, but does the job. I use it to inflate my bike tires. I would not recommend it for car tires.
It is difficult to detach and does lose too much air in the process.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ChrisS Good inflator, small convenient size
Bought to top off my RV tires while out on the road.
Understand the limitations of inflating the larger size
RV tires up to 80PSI, and it does take a few minutes
per tire. Still, a good quality unit that does what I
expected it to do, all within a small package size.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigBob Just what I was looking for.
Much better quality than I expected for the price. Not as loud, and it's faster, than my previous 12-volt inflator. The tires on my motorcycle need topping off almost every month and if I had known about this unit I would have replace my 12-volt long ago.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mustang Chuck does not remove easily from valve stems
This inflator does a fair job of inflating a car tire. It's relatively quiet and it doesn't move around on the ground due to vibration, but it seems kind of slow and the pressure gauge reads a little high compared to my own pressure gauge.
The worst attribute of this inflator is that, once you've finished inflating a tire, the locking chuck is not easily removed from the valve stem. When you flip the lever to the unlocked position, the chuck is difficult to remove smoothly and quickly from the stem -- it sticks.
And, it's not consistently difficult. That is, sometimes you lose only a little bit of air and sometimes you lose a lot of air in the process of forcing it off the stem. This means that you have to compensate by overfilling the tire more than you would otherwise. Then, once the chuck is off the tire, you may need to bleed off excess air.
My expectations for how an inflator -- and a locking chuck -- should work are based on a 25-year old Black & Decker inflator that recently stopped working. It had a solid metal -- not sheet metal -- chuck that had a very positive -- not rubbery -- feel to the locking mechanism. And, it slipped off the stem quickly and easily. And yes, I know that I can replace the new inflator's chuck with a better one, but I shouldn't have to!!
Normally, I would return this inflator because of the chuck, but it seems like every inflator in its price range has the same type of poorly designed, cheaply-made chuck. And, from the reviews I've read, this seems to be the most reliable inflator in its class.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joe Very good inflator
Well built item that works faster than a battery powered one, with good fit from hose to valve.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DickWI I like a unit that works off a wall outlet.
Even though I'm not 100% sure of the accuracy of the pressure gauge, the unit operated as discribed. I have a second guage that shows a discrepancy in the PSI. Which gauge is accurate?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BRPhoenix It's powerful and reliable.
I'm a science teacher and I needed a powerful, reliable to pump to pressurize water bottles for our water bottle rocket project. I tried 2 other pumps before this one and neither one was powerful enough to handle the job. One of them shut down after a while when it was hot outside. But this pump is not only more powerful, it keeps going even in temperatures over 100 degrees F. I use it to go to 90 psi repeatedly over the period of an hour in the hot sun and high temps. I highly recommend this pump.
