Lot's of Pressure

If not gripped tightly, I believe you could easily loose some teeth, major eye damage or something else equally bad.

Just re-iterating the warning. Hang on tight.

boowho??
Agree totally. I have a portable, 3 gal. compressor from Lowes that I take everytime we go out to check tires before leaving campground. It doesn't take much space and is fairly light weight. What I do to be safe is release the air in the tank before storing it and dis-connecting the hose. It also gets rid of any moisture collected in the tank.

Boo we have a storage yet. Ideally it all would have been gone but when the house sold the buyers wanted immediate possession. So lots went into storage. We have sold all the furniture and all my big tools but still have forty plus years of stuff. All of it together isn't worth what we pay to rent the storage.

Curious - is there an adjustable low pressure setting on these pumps that would keep your pressure up where u want it? If there was, could you reset while you inflate tire, and then return to proper setting for brakes/bags/etc?

No it's air for a tow truck to hook up to the Berkshire's air brakes. It just has several uses.

Accumack, in a previous thread about this air chuck somebody said that if a towing company tried to air up the brakes using this chuck it doesn't work.

Here too. But "She Who Must Be Obeyed" said put it storage. Oh well, lived to fight another day.

air chuck in generator compartment

I think it was around $250. It has really been a savior keeping the tires properly inflated all the time.
