    I have a thomas blue tongue hard wired under the bonnet, but slowish by todays standars for some

    And i have a 4wd super centre air compressor in the rear drawers which i whip out when needed, works well and is quick but the coupling system into the valve stem is sheet imho and needs to be changed/upgraded at some stage....but not a huge issue...the thumper is cheap to buy also

    guage just buy something in a hardcase so u can sore it and prevents damage,,ill get the brand later on to u

      I have a ridge ryder from Super Cheap. Got it when they had a 50% off sale.

      It's a pretty good unit for the $119 I paid about a year ago although I probably wouldn't pay full price for it since there are some pretty good contenders out there for $250+. The Ridge Ryder gets pretty hot after filling 4 tyres from 18psi back up to 35psi, but it has never let me down yet. I also have an ARB tyre deflator which is a great tool as well.

        Check this unit out, has some good reviews if you do a search.
        Easy way to inflate and deflate your tyres.. do it twice instead of four times.. no more bending over, pumping or deflating your tyres.. 90 % as quick as a rapid deflator, but so much easier.. 1st shipment of 100 units coming late Feb. was sold on pre orders. We will make product available again once quantity and arrival date of the following shipment will be confirmed.

          They've fixed the Thumper mate, I've got one of the new ones (twin cylinder model) and it's a ripper. They've got proper air fittings on both ends and actually also have a proper inflater with a trigger and gauge on it.

            Been through quite a few compressors and best by a long way is my Black Max 3; decent duty cycle (most important will do 4 tyres in hot conditions without stopping), auto cut-off when you take it off the tyre, great digital gauge and reasonable price.

              Am happy with my Thumper from 4WD Supacentre, although the black hose isn't the best. As for a tyre pressure gauge, I've been using my digital one that I use for mountain biking. https://www.topeak.com/global/en/pro...-smartgauge-d2

                Those are a good gauge. I have one and it is the only thing I have found that is accurate at low pressures. I run the fatbike tyres down to 4psi! Also it is good for the polyairs.
