Rated 5 out of 5 by from This unit performed well above my expectations and was very easy to use.It has a screw thread to attach to the tyres air valve which prevents air escaping as your able to switch this unit off and then remove the connector. It made short work of pumping up my tyres, the guage appeared accurate when checked with a digital tyre pressure guage.The only downside of this and any other d/c compressor I have ever used is you cannot disconnect the air pipe,but if you could this would prevent breakage where the pipe is attached to the unit. If this was sorted this would get 5 stars which is what I have given it anyway as on the ratings provided it is better than very good but not quite excellent .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Had one of these for a while now, and mechanically it's very good. As a bonus, it actually sounds like a proper compressor, unlike the smaller battery powered versions which sound like a wasp in a tin can. As other reviews mentioned, the gauge is inaccurate and should not be relied on. The problem I have is the power switch - a nice feature but it is under-specced for the motor current, and is now overheating. I suspect failure is imminent, and if so, I will replace the switch with a properly rated one, because the rest of the unit is well worth keeping. Good value despite the dodgy switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased this heavy duty air compressor some 3 months ago mainly for the rear tyres on my car when towing the caravan. Pressure increase needed is 30 up to 40 psi and this unit does the job easily and in no time at all. It is really quiet, when compared to others I have used, and I wish I had bought it years ago. Would recommend this compressor without hesitation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well built little unit and sounds properly like it's bigger brothers. Despite expecting inaccurate gauge from other reviewers, the one on mine is accurate to the nearest 2psi. Decent hose and cable length but the cigarette plug is a bit temperamental in some sockets. All in all a solid little chap which is IMHO better than others I have owned or used at the ?ъ50 bracket. Maybe I need a spare for the garage! Loses a star for the plug only.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent item and good value. Heavy duty indeed. I am hard to please but on this occasion hugely impressed with the quality and the design. It looks and feels like a much dearer item. It works well and would not be out of place in a commercial workshop. Bargain. I will be buying a few as gifts as I am genuinely impressed with this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Buy I've had a number of car socket pumps over the years, some of them 2 or 3 times the price of this one and I can say that to date this is the best. The tire valve is screw on and a great plus over the normal clip type, whilst the body gets warm in use it has yet to overheat or cut out and for a DIY pump the construction is fairly solid. As with all these mini pumps, it is best if you double check the pressure with a standard gauge.
