FYI Very cool Item a must have !!!!!

http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_1...=1285067301777

I have two motorcycles two cars three bicycles & a wheel barrow. I found this tool to be a must have. It fills tires to over 100 LBS ( bicycles) has a gauge & a setting for psi. set the psi you want press the trigger & it stops running when it reaches that psi. Very convenient a garage must have. Battery pack lasts a long time between charges. I thought others should know.

Thanks, Bill. That does look extremely convenient. I hate firing up my Makita compressor just to put 3 psi into two tires. But at $45 for the inflator, and then $100 for the battery pack and charger, probably a little out of my convenience budget. If you already have the Sears 19.2 volt system, I'm sure it would be a great addition.

Do you blow into the bottom square part? Looks like it would be hard to get your mouth around...

their are like 10 other tools that take the same Battery. So the charger pack is versatile.

My wife got me one of those for my birthday and for the life of me I could not get the nozzle part onto the tire valve while the drill was spinning it around. It was the cheaper version though, with just the air hose and nozzle.

Very handy tool but be super careful with the chuck. Cheap pot metal and very little section where it meets the hose.

I just got one of these for a early x-mas present, and it works very well. I already have the 19.2V battery and other craftsman tools that use the battery so this was a nice addition to the set.

I checked the car tires this morning (it was 25 deg F) and they were down on average 27 lbs (normal is 30). With a full battery the pump topped off all 4 tires with no problem and charge in the battery to spare. The trigger lock and auto cutoff when the tires reach pressure is a nice feature. The digital gauge appears to be accurate and is lit.

The 195/65 R15 tires topped off in a min or so, averaging about .1 lbs about every 4 seconds.

The valve chuck works flawlessly for me, quick to connect and disconnect with very little air loss (a quick pop of air when disconnecting). I would be careful about dropping or banging the chuck around tho.

The one thing to keep in mind is that when you set the pressure gauge to cut off at 30 lbs, it will do so. The problem is that when its pumping the pressure gauge is also measuring the pressure of the tire and what is being pumped in so when the pump turns off, you are -2 below target you will end up at 28 lbs. Just add 2+ when setting the pressure (if your target is 30, set it for 32.. you will most probably end up with 30.1).

If it aint broke, take it apart and make it better.
