Default TBH help!

Okay folks I'm needing a cheaper pancake compressor. All it will do is air up my Can Am tires and occasionally a pick up tire. I did a little research on here but nothing popped up. All I see on Amazon is a porter cable are a Craftsman. Any suggestions? Like to keep it cheap.

I have one of the little Harbor Freight compressor. I use it for my business as well as around the lease. It has served me well, and has lasted well over 6 years

Bought the Central Pneumatic Smart listed several years ago on sale for $35 dollars and it has been great.

Invest in a tank compressor. Use it many ways, not just for airing up tires. JMO

Something to consider is getting you a 10 or 20# CO2 bottle and a 150# preset regulator from a welding shop. That way you can keep it in your truck box all the time. A 20# bottle will air up a thousand or more tires, run air tools, paint gun, blow out your tractor radiator, what ever, just like an air compressor but you don't need electricity and it can go with you.

I've bought all my bottles at flea markets and never paid over $20 for one. Regulator is $32 at my welding supply. 20# bottle is $6 to refill.

Harbor freight will ship to you if you order it online through their website.
