New Inflation Options

Good Day Folks,

I have a cheapo 12v electric pump that I've used for many years thinking/hoping it will kick the bucket every time I use it. I'm considering getting something nicer as a replacement. I do have the big NRS barrel pump and child horsepower. So this search is more of a luxury item. I'll be honest, theBoatPeople's ad for the Blow Pro 420 AC was got me started on this journey. That one looks bomber and a nice bang for the buck, but looks be too powerful to run off car inverters.

Has anyone had experience with either of these, or have more suggestions?

Cheaper but I don't have already kobalt batteries, and is only battery as source.

More expensive, but I have dewalt battery packs. Plus it has 3 power source options, and has high pressure uses as well.

If you already have the batteries, I'd go with one of these:

Just need a K-pump to top them off.

I have the Ryobi one and I love it:
RYOBI-18-Volt-ONE-Cordless-High-Volume-Power-Inflator-Tool-Only

A better deal if you already have the batteries, obviously. I was seriously surprised at how fast it inflated my 14' boat (use a K-pump or something to top off).

This looks like it might be a good option:

We just used this exact same thing to blow up 5 boats.. worked great and has my seal of approval.

I have this one and it is awesome. It will easily blow up 5 14' boats on a battery. The tire pump works pretty good too, for what it is. I got mine for Christmas and I couldn't be happier. It is my new go to blower.

I have a similar 120V blower that I use for inflation at home. No complaints.

I have red cordless tools, so am currently shopping for a deal on one of these based on zbaird's suggestion in another thread:

I have the knock-off Amazon version of the Dewalt. Blows up my 16' boat fine, but need to top off with a hand pump to make it tight. I got the adapter that Zach mentions in the video above and it makes inflating leafield valves a breeze.

Komi 20v for $70 https://www.amazon.com/Cordless-Leaf...9410102&sr=8-3

The only problem I see with the leaf blower types is getting a good seal to the valve. Mr Gear Garage said he had someone make him a special adapter piece. I don't have that same someone or a 3D printer. I get that you'd still get a good inflate without that tighter seal, but like I said - I'm looking for the luxury item version. A luxury item, in my eyes, would be a perfect fit.

Also, I do own the small k-pump. With the addition of a barrel pump, it's been relegated to backup duty. Which usually means being strapped to the frame all season and never moved.
