Topeak JoeBlow Ace 3 Stage 260 psi Floor Pump

Unread postAuthor: Gun Freak » Fri Oct 08, 2010 4:46 pm

I got this yesterday in the mail. It is really cool :D Three stage design gets high volume (I mean HIGH) AND high pressure (260 psi HIGH!). It is so beast. It stands 29 inches tall and 51.5 inches tall when completely extended! That is how big it is. It only takes 15 strokes to fill my GB gun to 60 psi (first stage) and only 10 to fill my BBMG tank to 60! The second stage pumps to 120, then the third is like a giant shock pump and pumps to 260 psi with amazing ease. I really like this pump. It was a 110 USD pump and I got it for 47... pretty good deal lol. Anyway here are the pics.

Smart head (it is a really good head)

I tested it up to 260 psi and it easily made it. Could go way over 300 but I am not going over the rating. I put my fire extinguisher air tank up to 200 psi to test it and it held for 30 minutes and only lost about 9 psi. I will now hapily take that tank up to 180 psi when I play airsoft. Thanks Topeak! :D

I've been lusting over one of those for a while... When I get one I'm going to find its max pressure...

PS how did you get it so cheap? Can't find it for less than $145 AUD

It can easily do 350 psi I'd say but it's only rated to 260 so I'm not gonna push it by much :P If you need high volume, get it, and if you need high pressure, get it, and if you just need a good pump, get it. This thing is amazing and you won't regret the purchase. :)
Mine was discounted like 27 so the price was 82 and I had 35 bucks in promotional ballance from a few websites.

I always use schraders but this one has a smart head, which means it can do all of the valves. Prestas are fine.

It's worth noting that that's not a true 3 stage pump. A true 3 stage pump would use the first stage to fill the second stage in it's maximum volume position, which would then do the same to the 3rd. PCP handpumps are all 3 or perhaps 4 stage pumps.

not that I'm not jealous :D

Certainly worth the buy. This hasn't failed to impress me yet. I did have a problem with the head but I worked it out. If my tank is empty, it works fine. But if there is pressure in the tank and I want to top it off, I can connect the pump head, pull the lever, but the pin in the head doesn't press the valve stem untill I get up to the pressure in the tank inside the hose. It's fine with me, but the problem is I don't know how much pressure is in it until I actually reach it. But that is no problem. On that note, I put 160 psi in my fire extinguisher air tank and over 24 hours it lost 40 psi, which is less than 2 psi per hour. Awsome :D

Awesome that it leaks? Spray the joints with soapy water to find the leak so that you can fix it.

Yeah, its awsome cause it works better than before. I know where the leak is. It is not a problem. The most this thing holds air is 15 minutes in which it only loses 1/4th of a psi.

Assuming it leaks at a constant rate...

I've already ran the calculations on how much air it loses.

Ever had something leak at one pressure but not at a lower pressure? Something may leak like a sieve at 150PSI but at 100PSI it could leak a lot slower.

Yeah, I know what you are saying. But at the rate it leaks, it would take forever for the rate to change. Not a problem.
I put my fire extinguisher air tank up to 200 psi to test it and it held for 30 minutes and only lost about 9 psi.

Thats how much it lost before... 18 times more than before. I am happy, and I don't care about 1/4th of a psi.
