Compressor for high pressure tires

Has anyone purchased a portable compressor or tire inflator for tires running up to 125 psi? Are you satisfied with it's capabilites?

Are you sure you need a compressor?

Couple of blog posts on the topic

This time of year places like Lowes have a 150PSI Porter Cable pancake compressor on sale usually pretty cheap.

I have a Crafstman 150 PSI 4 Gallon Pancake style compressor, Sears no longer carries the specific model but has another one that's nicer looking.. Should do the job just the same.

I like it. Works well.

I have used other lower cost units from either Big Department Stores (Competitor of Wal*Mart) and HF.. not so happy with them.

I bought a Porter Cable 150 psi 3 gal comp at Home Depot for $99 10% dicount for vets and l think over 65. $89 works great on 110 . I got sick and tired of 12 volt. I drop my tire pressure to 55 when unhooked better traction and ride. Takes about 2 min to air up .

I too became tired of trying to fill them with the engine running.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...E4HCBXUMEETI2U

There is a thread on this. A mount is available so I placed mine in a small little used compartment. Lengthening the power cable a few feet is fine. If I need to use it somewhere else it is held in place with wing nuts.

This is not a cheap unit as compressors go. Those cheap compressors I have found seem to have the same junk regulator just waiting to fall apart. As boy toys go this is not cheap but sure does the job well. Not a speed demon but this model can run as long as it needs to. The accessories are well built.
