Cordless Tire Inflators

Has anyone used the Ridgid 18V cordless tire inflator with 22.5" motorhome tires? It's supposed have 150 psi and ideal for truck and RV tires, but I find it hard to believe something like that can handle 100+ psi inflation of tires on a 30,000+ lbs RV. If you have successfully used it or something comparable, I'd appreciate hearing about it.

I use the Royobi 18 volt cordless for my 80 PSI, 16" tires.

It's not fast but sure is convenient.

The compressor burned out after 5 or so years but did lots of tires before it did.

I use the 18v royobi inflator for my cars which is convenient compared to firing up the compressor and rolling up the air hoses and moving cars around.

I did use it a few times on my trailer with LR"E" It took like 10 minutes to hit 75 psi. The unit got hot and distorted the rubber hose where it mounted to the pump. A few uses later the hose leaked. Replaced the inflator and now only use for below 40 psi. But the first inflator was first generation, I bought the first year of sale. So newer ones might be okay for 75 psi.

I used a Kobalt 24 volt compressor on my drive and tag tires. I brought them up from 85 to 87 pounds. It took a few minutes, but I didn’t have to drag out the hose and start the coach. I did one side, then let the compressor cool for a few minutes according to the operating instructions, then did the other side. I have used it many times on my Chevy 2500 20” tires, as well as numerous trailer tires, and lawn equipment tires, but they don’t hold near as much air as the 22.5” tires on my coach.

I heard great reviews on the Milwaukee M-12 inflator tool and since I already have a lot of M-12 tools and batteries I ordered the bare tool only at $79 but I am still waiting for it going on 7 weeks now.

I've used a DeWalt DCC020IB 20V CORDED/CORDLESS AIR INFLATOR (https://www.dewalt.com/products/stor...lator/dcc020ib) for some time and have been generally satisfied with it.

Don't, for a second, think that it's capable of completely inflating a 22.5 RV tire. It does do a decent job of adding 2 - 3 psi to an underinflated RV tire. I like that it's battery operated and that you can set a target inflation pressure, connect it to tire, turn it on and it runs until the target pressure is achieved.

Take care,
Stu

I also have the Dewalt 20v inflator topping off my 100 PSI Sailun G rated 5'er tires.
I think it could imflate a 22.5 tire. You might have to let it rest (cool off) a few minutes but I do believe it could get the job done.

I am currently using the dual voltage KOBALT w/ digital setpoint, auto-shutoff is NICE on my 16" Class-C, but unsure about life w/ regular use? VIAAIR does offer a Low to High $$ assortment, (and rebuildable) but some based on "Duty-Cycle"... which is WHY is I am skeptical of life on the cheaper OIL-LESS compressors. I have had a few fail and disassembled to feel like looking at old soup cans as pistons. The (Dewalt/Ryobi/Milwaukee) will all have limits to duty and life, but any beats none.

I just took a look at it, and NO, in my opinion, it is only for car and pickup truck tires.

NO WAY would I use this for 22.5 tires.

If you get the Viair you will be happy with its performance.

There's a big difference between adding a few pounds here and there and inflating. I think he cordless inflators work OK for adding a few lbs but would not want to air up a flat with one, unless it was a small car or bike tire. Even the Viair takes a while to air up a truck tire.
