Can anybody recommend a triple duty (car, bike, scooter) tire pump, manual, foot or electrical.

Thanks,
Marius

I also have the slime pump and it works well. I have only had to use it on a car tire but it did well.

I have a portable Jump Starter that includes an air compressor. I keep it in the car but use it for both the car and bike tires. I've jump started someone's car in the work parking lot and the usb port came in handy when power was out for several days during one of the storms this year.

I have the Stanley J5C09 500 Amp Jump Starter, here's the amazon link : http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002X6VXL4/ref=wms_ohs_product

Thanks for the portable pump recommendation above... just went on my Xmas wish list. :)

Cheers,
Jim

This pump is bomb proof. Get it. It laughs in the face of any other portable pump out there. No cheap plastic anywhere either. Too pricey for most folk tho. 110 smackers. But when you are stuck in bfe.....

How about some recommendations for a small garage compressor? Quiet and efficient with a storage tank would be nice. I have little patience for the portable pumps when working on car/truck tires. Scott

I picked up one of these to keep air in the three motorcycles, two bicycles, car and truck. It does the job fairly well and the price isn't too painful either.

I agree, a great pump.

One of the cheap(er) diaphragm-type compressors will work just fine, but they're horrendously noisy. I put on my shooting-range hearing protectors before I start ours. I've been thinking for a long time about getting a piston-type compressor with a bigger tank -- the four-gallon tanks aren't up to doing car tires without recovery time.

After having tried 5 different low budget compressors, some were too loud, some broke after 6 months to a year, I bought a Makita MAC700 about 6 months ago. I've been very happy with it. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0001Q ... 00_details

I have an AirRevolution Powersports footpump. It's small, it's reliable, and for touching up just a couple or few PSI, it's not too much work.
