    Hello,
    not sure if this is the right place to post this...
    I am in need of a new tyre inflator and have decided to just buy once and cry once (plus some accuracy would be nice) and hence i am set on a pcl inflator.

    their is 2 versions, the trusty analogue airforce or the digital accura.
    does anyone have either and have any suggestions.

    also pros/ cons of the hold on wand version/clip on??

    cheers in advance

    Analogue simple look after it, it'll serve you for years.

    Check out "Cable Ties Direct" web site for the price of PCL bits in Sheffield.

    PS. If you want accuracy get it calibrated once a year. Our guy charges about £8.00 for the yearly cal test.

    Analogue with a wand .
    Them wands can be bent to fit on awkward valves .

    Digital for me. No parallax error when reading.

    My analogue PCL has two lines on the readout so you know when you are lined up perfect.

    Plus these are tyre pressures, not bearing fits.

    i think that answers that then, knowing my luck the batteries would leak and destroy a perfectly good tool, one less thing to go wrong!
