I agree the man of rubber is the industry standard for good blowers, but check out that blow pro, blows just as well, half the price. Been really impressed with this little guy.

I have tried 12 volt and 110 options. I have a tundra with an optima yellow top in it... for 12 volt I have used an LVM for about a decade, and then it puked it burned up the switch and I found a rule knock off, and it puked a bearing. The high pitched whine is enough to give you tinitus. I have also run an airpig, and the NRS knock off of the lvm. all meh. Back in my guiding days we ran a man-of-rubber pump of a Genny, and we could do 14 boats, and very little top off. depending on the statute of limitations, we may or may not have held the blow-off valve in so we would not have to hand top.
My current set up is the top half of a craftsman shopvac blower run through a 2800 cobra inverter. I took a set of 8 gauge jumper cables, cut the handles off one end crimped on lugs, and that rocks. My buddy just got a high flow dog drier and it has impressive stats, so we will be trying that with the inverter too.
I think 110 is the best way to go, I also think there is a theoretical limit to how many CFM of air we can fit past a leafield per minute!

It comes with an attachment that fits my valves and I'll say it will match the performance of big red blower, rubber man, and anything else that cost double, with little to no top off necessary. You can even inflate with warm air if you want. The doodle loves it too. The only issue is the short hose so I have to tote the unit around the boats, but that is no big deal.

I am always amazed by the pricing of stuff marketed to rafters...
That's cool.

My daughter raised 4-h hogs and beef. They'd use heated blowers like those, but again, when marketed to "show people", the heated blowers are $300-400!

Thank you! I just started acquiring M18 tools.

Also useful as a vacuum?

How many pump ups for a given batt size, say 3.0ah?

Vac works great.
I keep boats partially inflated so canít say how many fills but would guess 3-5 on 5 amp.

I have had that one for 10 years with no problems. It is probably good to 1.5 PSI and you need to top-off with a manual

If ya see us at the boat ramp you are usually welcome to use it too!

We turned an adapter on the lathe that hooks on the back of the unit and allows it to deflate tubes too.



I will 2nd Unlucky's suggestion. Not a big fan of their customer service but they do provide a product that pumps my 16ft cat tubes up in about a minute. Here's the criticism of the Man of Rubber product (not really criticism, just some facts I learned the hard way): 1) Generator needs to be 2000W generator. 2) No, this does not work on your 12V plugin in the bed of your Tacoma...)
