Ryobi Dual Function Inflator/Deflator

Ryobi Dual Function Inflator/Deflator Hands-on Review | P747

Ryobi Upgrades a Classic Not many of us spare too many thoughts for the lowly tire inflator until we actually need one, and then they become exceedingly helpful in a pinch. Between filling bike tires, the occasional air mattress, the odd basketball, ZT mower tires, and my driver-side rear car tire with an almost-imperceptible-but-definitely-there-if-you’re-paying-attention slow […]

Kobalt 120 Volt Tire Inflator Review

Tire inflators have graced store shelves since we can remember. Recently, however, features like digital LCD displays and automatic pressure gauges have improved these products. As recently as this year I’ve been using a DeWalt Quiet Trim compressor to top off the air in my tires. All that takes is a dual air chuck for the 1/4-inch NPT quick coupler […]

Porter-Cable PCC583B 18V High-Pressure/Volume Inflator Preview

Porter-Cable PCC583B 18V High-Pressure/Volume Inflator Preview

Porter-Cable launched a new 18V High-Pressure/High-Volume Inflator (PCC583B) that can also run on 12 Volt DC-power. The inflator is designed to deliver both speed and ease of use at a value customers can appreciate. Porter-Cable’s 18V Cordless High-Pressure/High-Volume Inflator PCC583B is made to allow people who may be, literally, in the middle of nowhere quick and accurate inflation. In a sense, their motto seems to be: “No power? No problem!” Since it’s Porter-Cable, the inflator can be powered from either an 18V Lithium-ion or NiCd battery. But, it can also take power via a 12V DC power source – like a car or truck battery. It does this via the included 10-foot DC power cord which should allow access to all four tires as needed.
