This is Ring’s most powerful tyre compressor, designed for larger heavier vehicles such as 4x4s, SUVs and caravans. Lorries, busses, tracks, excavators etc, if bragging rights are important to you, it was easily the fastest we tested. We also liked the clear digital display located on the top of the unit, rather than the side, which meant we didn’t have to lean it over to see the readout, and the design is the most robust of those we tested, with rubber feet to keep it steady. It is very heavy, at 1.8kg, and industrial-looking, although not unattractive.
The work light is solid white only (no hazard flash option) and the auto-stop gauge seemed a little less reliable — it inflated to an indicated 36PSI and stopped, but the gauge then dropped to an indicated 34.5PSI. Still, it was very quick, has a handy air release valve in case of over-inflation. The cable tidy system is basic (they simply wrap around the unit), but it comes with a neat bag to stop it all unraveling in your boot.
