Any good big truck tire pressure Gauges

I need a good tire pressure gauge for my Class A. I need it to go to at least 125psi. I'd prefer something heavy duty with a digital readout and a truck type air chuck end. I currently have a analog Trucker's Friend and would like something that will last. Got any ideas?

Here's the one I use. I picked it up at AutoZone, I believe. 5 to 150 PSIG capability with dually head.

This is the absolute Rolls Royce of digital truck gauges. It cost $132 but it works and comes in a beutiful padded aluminum case and goes from 5 to 125 psi. We use Longacre tire gauge on our race car as do a lot of drag and NASCAR racers. They will put the dually head on it if you call them and ask them. Call Longacre Racing at 800.423.3110 and make sure you ask for Missy so you get the correct setup. Like I said this is expensive but is well worth. Can be used accurately at 30 psi for your cars or 110 psi for the motorhome. This will not break after one trip.

Schrader makes a certified master gauge. Heavy duty, chrome, about 10 inches long, inside outside combination tip, measures in one pound increments. Mine is 30 years old and still accurate.

Bought one from Amazon for $12.00 and it is a digital. Very accurate and easy to use 5 to 150psi. Much better than my analog one from CW and makes the stick one a candidate for the trash.

Macnut, I had four of those gauges. They all either broke or the steel braided hose separated from the fitting and that is why I went to the one above. Good luck.

I like the one that 4Wheel parts has. They offer different configurations, 6' whip hose for safety and free shipping!

How do you or I know our gauges are accurate? I have several and on a given day they don't agree. Two of them are the tried and true Milton trucker gauges and they generally agree with each other. What would be a standard to calibrate a gauge to...........

^^^^Excellent question! And frankly one that I can't answer. What I do know is that I have compared my gauge to those used at tire shops with auto inflater/gauges, truck stops that used some of the gauges listed above. I even have and el-cheapo and its pretty darn close. Consistency in my opinion is more important than precise accuracy.
If I am 1 pound or so off its ok as long as it is consistent. After all, this is not blood pressure.

NAPA sells calibrated gauges. I have one that I check my others against. I never use the certified one to regularly set tire pressures. Cost was about $35 a few years ago.

Miltons are good...but believe it or not...I bought one at Wally World made by SLIME...for around 11 bucks or so and its pretty darn accurate...a 2 chuck head so you can do the rear dulleys as well...nothing fancy but works like a champ..

Typically, on the mechanical gauges, plus or minus 2 percent.
