Makita DMP180 Cordless Inflator

Compact and Portable Makita Cordless Inflator Comes in Handy

We’ve noticed an influx of portable and lightweight tire inflation options hitting the market recently. Makita just released its own battery-powered inflator on the 18V LXT battery platform. It features a more familiar design with the same type of handle you’d find on a drill. The Makita DMP180 Cordless Inflator tackles everything from sports ball and bike tire inflation to car and light truck tire top-offs. And, with its compact design, you can take it just about anywhere.

Key Features

Makita DMP180 Cordless Inflator

The Makita Cordless Inflator delivers up to 120 psi. It also features an auto-stop function. You just set the desired pressure on the backlit display, and when the DMP180 reaches the desired pressure, it shuts itself off to prevent overfilling.

It features a 25.5-inch hose for better reach and an LED work light so you can see what you’re doing in dim or nighttime conditions.

The compact Makita cordless inflator measures a very portable 10 x 3 x 7 inches. It stores away neatly and is small enough to throw in your trunk or in your toolbag.  It includes a sports ball needle, Presta valve adapter, and tapered adapter—all of which stores away inside the handle.

Makita DMP180 Cordless Inflator

The 18V LXT Makita DMP180 cordless inflator comes in both a bare tool and kitted option. The kit comes with a 1.5Ah battery and charger, and it retails for $169.99. As a bare tool, you can grab the inflator for just $99.99.

How is this a review?! It’s more like a product summary!


How loud is it and what kind of vibration level is produced? For instance, does it skip across the floor when turned on?
