Air compressor for inflating tires.

Wow, found this deal on a air compressor that pumps up to 200 psi.

Looks very compact, and like to know if anybody else thinks it's worthwhile.....sure I know it's more than the pancake compressors that are popular at the home improvement stores....but lately people have been expressing discontent with them due to max air pressure issues. Not that I need 200 psi....but seems if the compressor can due it, then 150 shouldn't make it break a sweat!

I'd be very suspicious of the 1.76 CFM rating. The cubic feet rating is usually given at a specific air pressure. 1.76 CFM @0 psi is extremely low volume at 100 -150 psi. For much less you can get a pancake air compressor that can go to 150 psi with much more volume. In addition, I don't consider $191 a 'Low Price' for a tankless compressor that's been reconditioned. 12 v powered air compressors are usually very loud and not really robust enough to inflate a large volume RV tire. Run your generator and use a 120 v AC compressor.

Two hundred PSI for tires? Surely you don't need that kind of pressure

That compressor would take a long time to inflate a tire.. Low volume, high pressure.

I have the same one works great, but I did change the coiled hose for a rubber one.

The small 12v compressor really needs a tank to work best. It will charge the tank slowly, and then you can use the tank to actually fill the tire without waiting forever.

I have the small 3 gal pancake Harbor Freight compressor i carry with me, still slow for my large 22.5 tires and near the psi limit, but it works and is much better than the small 12v one would ever be. Looks like this one:
3 gal. 1/3 HP 100 PSI Oilless Pancake Air Compressor

200 psi out of a 12 vdc compressor! Possibly in several hours!
Real compressor at www.factoryauthorizedoutlet.com Which is Porter Cable.
Their 150 psi with 6 gal. tank is $117.99 with free shipping and a warranty.

It's not just the pressure rating, volume plays a major part also. A compressor without a volume tank will take a long time to fill a large tire.

I've been using a similar Viair compressor on my RV for over two years. It's super quiet and gets me to 90 PSI much faster than the pancake compressor I just sold at a yard sale.

I've tried several small compressors and have been disappointed. The last failed attempt was a Home Depot 125 psi Husky compressor. It struggled and usually failed to top off my tires at 100psi. I just replaced it with a Porter Cable, 150 psi model. Normal price at Lowes is $160, on sale now for $129. I've used it once since purchase and so far I love it.

If your referring to the one in post #4, that's what we have and it "will" pump up our 22.5 tires nicely. Unfortunately, I believe that model has been discontinued.
I would highly recommend the following replacement for consideration as it has a high cfm rating which is what you want and should store easily in one of your storage bays. I would also recommend carrying an extra 50ft hose maybe from Harbor Freight and a 50ft extension cord. Need to air up on the road and no power available, run the genie and plug into an outside plug which you should have.
