Got fed up using,,,
« on: Jun 20, 2021, 10:03 AM »
Ok being using foot pump had 3 ,on the versys,I had to man handle bike only have 2 paving stones wide in garden,so back n forth kneeling in grass/mud etc.
I got bike electric pump have to take off seat, connect etc and very load takes forever.
So after researching, got perfect product;
Makita DMP180Z 18V LXT Inflator Bare Unit for the cheapo price of  £55 delivered from FFX
I got my Makita drill and impact drill there couple years ago ,I have 4 batteries ,2 x5amp and 2 x4amp.
Itís BLOODY brilliant ,very lightweight ,pumpcar tyres all 4 ,both bike tyres in SECONDS, very quite ,donít get hot for the length of time I used it,done twice and battery still on full charge and auto cuts off, only possible negative is you have to hold power button ,to me thatís a plus and it doesnít pull on valves.
Took longer to take dust caps off,,,,,car was between 6 to 12psi low ,bike 6 back 2 front low.
Can highly recommend this,was win win all round.
Ok I know you need Makita batteries and charger,but already had both.

Food for thought indeed. :028:

I have a small compressor (Lidl/Aldi type) that could do with replacing and in reality all I ever use it for nowadays is checking and inflating tyres, plus I already have some Makita tools,.

Hmmm!  :notsure:

You donít have to have makita batteries and charger, you can get a converter to use dewalt batteries in makita tools as I have a mixture of both but only have dewalt batteries.  :028:

Dont buy Dewalt  or Makita batteries, get the chinese copies, cheaper by miles, run time the same and live for longer.
