Any suggestions for a tyre compressor//inflator capable of inflating tyres to about 80psi ?
I bought one from my local motor factors yesterday described as heavy duty suitable for 4x4's and motorhomes, rated to 150psi.
Used it this afternoon and first tyre the air hose blew a hole in it.
Ended up with less air in the tyre than I started with.

Forgot to say it needs to be 12v with crocodile clips to attach direct to the battery or cordless if a cordless one is practical.

I have one of these.

Makita DMP180Z 18V Li-ion LXT Inflator - Batteries and Charger Not Included https://amzn.eu/d/135jhNU
Thanks for the suggestion but by the time I buy a battery and charger it works out quite pricey.
All my cordless gear is Hitachi but Hitachi cordless air compressors aren't available as far as I am aware.

I looked at the Vonhaus just now and it’s very similar to the Aldi one I use which works well albeit a little slow and the valve connector is a bit fiddly but workable. I already had batteries and a charger

Mmmm I’ve got a ring one only just about manages to blow my bicycle tyres up so would not recommend! Sorry it’s not a more positive answer.

Costco do a good one that we use. Comes in a handy bag with a gauge etc. You should find it on their website as it is a regular item.

I can recommend the Ring RAC900 Heavy Duty. It seems very well made. Remember You get what you pay.

I have had a Ring RAC900 Heavy Duty for about a year. It does the job quickly and reasonably quietly. The pump has to be attached to a 12 volt battery with crocodile clips. This can be a nuisance for some and simple for others. My Ducato battery is stuffed in a corner and the "terminals" are a nuisance to reach. But I consider that nuisance worth it.

I’ve just tried the Fiat compressor that came with my Burstner - it blew the cigar socket that’s intended to be used, so the std kit would be useless in an emergency!
im going to try the unit using crocodile clips from the engine bay terminals next: hopefully it will do the job. Tyre pressure specified as 80psi/ 5.5bar.
Ducato owners should be aware!

After returning a Ring “heavy duty” inflator that stopped inflating after a few uses, I got this. For over a year, it’s been flawless.
