Ryobi 18V One+ Dual Function Inflator/Deflator
Since the Cobalt was the straw that broke the camel's back, you might be wondering what got me to start looking into a cordless tire inflation solution in the first place. For quite a while, I've been in need of something to pump up the tires on my stored vehicles so that I can move them around from time to time — and I don't mean top off the tires. Because of the strenuous level of output and my doubts about their effectiveness mentioned above, I wasn't willing to spend a good-sized chunk of money I needed for other things just to test whether or a cordless inflator could manage to pump up the tires on my project cars that I'm not working on.
However, now that I have the Ryobi 18V One+ Dual Function Inflator/Deflator I'm going to test it on my '93 Mustang LX.
As you can see in the photo, the LX isn't going anywhere. All four tires are completely flat — which means that not only are they out of air, but they leak. We'll see how well the little Inflator manages this job — or rather, we'll see if it survives this job. I won't be surprised if it isn't up to the task, but, even if it succeeds, it may very well take a considerable amount of time with the ten minute break it has to take for every ten minutes it works.
