Is it a car one? For like tyres and stuff? If so don't get it, they're a POS and break at like 40psi because they cannot handle what us spudders do with them. Trust me, they never get to 300psi, let alone 150psi.


Not entirely true Mr Crowley, I have taken mine to 150psi before. The hose attachment gets hot but thats about it. Maybe some do break because they are poorly made but mine works fine and it cost me around $20 from super cheap auto.

Nice vid Watto :D loving the dmg!

I have to agree there, I get all my schraders from car and bicycle inner tubes and I've taken them to 400 psi without failure.

IDk, I have one of those from a company called Bonneville air, and I filled a 5gal tank to 120 psi with it.... Its rated for 250psi. But when I turned it off it smoked for a couple seconds lol... Just barely noticeable but there nonetheless... Still works!

I tested this cheap arse compressor out and it seems to do the job, if I want it done quick I just get it to 40PSI with the foot pump in 5 secs or somethin then let the compressor take it to 100.

I wonder if someone could come up with a water/air cooling mod for these little compressors that would increase their potential - probably because the bother and expense are less worthwhile than buying a proper one to start off with :D
