Air Compressor

Looking for a decent air compressor to air up the tires for around $100. Seems like all the ones I've looked at does not come with any attachments. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Amazon.com: Slime 40028 Rechargeable All-Purpose Tire and Raft Inflator: Automotive

I use this one. Works great. Preset the PSI, and it cuts off when reached. No more trial and error that has me bending over too much. Has lots of attachments I don't use. Also, this model's hose screws onto the valve stem, unlike others I've had that just snapped on. The snap-ons are too easy to get a bad seal and just difficult to get off and on.

It's also very accurate. I tested it against my dial guage, and readings were exactly the same.

I use this one's bigger brother, but this should fit your needs for staying under $100: Amazon.com: PORTER-CABLE PCFP02003 3.5-Gallon 135 PSI Pancake Compressor: Home Improvement

But, you will need to buy the hose and attachment if you don't already have these.

This is the 6gl that I use at home but it might be too large and heavier for what you are looking for. It comes with attachments. http://www.amazon.com/PORTER-CABLE-C...BLE+compressor

Mine's a Dewalt DWFP55120 3 gal compressor. Lowes & probably Home Depot carry them for about $120. It's small enough to tote around & can air up to 135 psi with gages on both the output and input. I check my tires about once a week & frequently use it. So one of those little "cheap" ones just won't do the trick.

Shop DEWALT 0.6-HP 3-Gallon 135-PSI Electric Air Compressor at Lowes.com=
