Milwaukee M12 Compact Inflator 2475-20 Review & Tips For Use

Set PSI – Inflate

The New Milwaukee M12 Compact Inflator has some very cool features that will make this inflator very popular with many people.  First, it will hit the DIY crowd as they do not need an air compressor or tire gauge to pump up their car or truck tires.  One can simply connect the Milwaukee Inflator, it will tell you the PSI of the tire, you can then set the desired PSI and it will pump your tire up to the target set and turn itself off.  We check the accuracy of the inflator and it was almost spot on under 40 PSI and would drift one or two PSI when you got close to 80 PSI.

Even if you have a large air compressor and a shop, this small inflator allows you to adjust the PSI of your tires up without much effort.  This feature will make it useful to a professional crowd as they can set this up and continue to make money working on something else.  You will not see these in every shop, but there will be many who will get a taste of this and like it.

If you are a traveler, this is perfect.  As a Ford Superduty owner, we have had the low tire pressure light come on and not be able to tell what tire is low or the tire pressures.  At the time this happened we did not know if we were going to have a flat tire soon or if we were just one PSI under the set number to pop the light on.   This happened to us in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan at night so even if there was a place to stop, no one would have been open.  This compact inflator would have given us the peace of mind to find the low tire and pump it up.

Allow to Cool!!!

PLEASE, read the manual on this unit before you use it.  You MUST NOT use this inflator for more than 10 minutes constantly due to heat buildup.  After 10 minutes of use, it must have 10 minutes of rest.  This is not a set it and forget it unit for large jobs.  We proved that with our thermal imager in our YouTube video.  If you plan to use this for more than what it is designed, like we did, allowing the unit to cool properly will help prevent the tool from overheating and doing damage to itself.

This is a great tool that many will really enjoy.  It removes the need for a small air compressor at home!
