    Just received the on-line flyer and saw This mains compressor which handles up to 8 Bar.

    May be useful to somebody for tyres.

    aldi have had them in for a couple of weeks now Graham.

    i have one, bought a few years ago from aldi (same model).......does the job but the receiver tank aint big enough if you need a lot of air at once....IE: fully flat tyre and need to get to a garage for repair.

    it may take two or three 're-starts' to provide enough air.

    on the RV (225/19.5") tyres i get enough to get from 70psi to 80psi in three tyres per two 'cycles'

    Get one and then when your tyre fairy lights go red you can make them go green again without driving to the garage... :Wink:

    I was thinking of getting one to top up tyres and blow up inflatables for the kids, I have a rubbish 12v compresser at the moment, is this alot better and would you recomend one?

    1.1Kw - that's 100A from your batteries.

    Yep Brian!
    Good batteries, not 'battery-shaped-objects' (leisure batteries) required for this application!:thumb:
