Air chuck recommendations

Postby Onan38 » Wed May 31, 2017 4:37 pm

Hello all! First time poster. The problem i am having is i can't for the life of me find a good air chuck for airing up tires and tractor tires.When i air my tractor tires i always make sure the valve is up but my chucks last less than a year before they leak or have a hard time adding air to the valve.

I don't have an answer. I don't know how old my air chucks are, most are well over 20 years. Still not having a problem.

Have an 18", 90 degree angle air chuck purchased a couple years ago, no problems.
I have an excuse. CRS.

If you think it's from corrosion from the fluid in the tractor tires you could try to find a brass one. I don't know if they still are but I believe the Milton's like Don suggested use to be made of brass then chromed.

Don't know how this will do with loaded tires, but I got this one and am very pleased with it. I use it for airing up tires, for bleeding off air and as an air gauge only. It also has a luminous dial for night time use. Very happy with it. This model has 100 psi limit and they have another model for up to 200 psi. Also available through Amazon.
