This is for all you more experienced travelers. We bought 2 air compressors the other day to use to fill up the pin box and the tires. We wanted something small but powerful enough to go to a minimum 80#'s. We have E rated tires and they call for 80# cold. 1 compressor woudln't go above 65. This was a small automatic one by Kobalt. Select the pressure and walk away. I set it to 80 and it had stopped at 65. The other was from Home Depot. It filled the tires but took forever. Does anyone out there have recommendations for a compressor that they travel with?

I have a great one and its pretty heavy duty. I bought it to fill up my G614s to 110psi. It's called Viair and model is 400c.Edited by: 5th_Time

Like everything this is a compromise, pressure, size and affordable. The best I could do is a Porter Cable model #C2004-WK, 165 psi at 29 lbs. It was purchased at Home Depot.

Sears has one that is rated at 150#. It is oil less and does a good job with my g tires at 110#. I think it was about $80.00 on sale.

I may have the same unit. It works quite well for pumping up the G614 tires to 110 psi.

150 PSI max

2.0 CFM @90 PSI

1.5 Gallon air chamber



Regular Price: $129.00

Unfortunately, Sears don't list it anymore. Tried a search, and it wasn't found.

Do you have a Sears close by? They may be able to help.
