There is no doubt it's spendy at $70 for the tool alone. But, I use Milwaukee tools, so I already have their batteries. I mainly use it to blow out my workshop, but have found it surprisingly useful for many other tasks including inflating stuff.
It's a very similar tool to the one the OP asked about in his 1st post. I believe the raft fill adaptor on the Milwaukee that allows for inflation and deflation makes it better than the Makita.
As for spendy, I went with an even more expensive option: a raft trailer where I leave it inflated all the time. Now that's simple!😀
