Could someone please advise me on a decent, cheap air compressor. Predominantly for skidsteer tyres.
Please be aware you will be replying to a total technical dimwit! :asshat:

What pressure are they?

I had a small 25l 8 bar compressor for a few years which I bought from Aldi for about £80 with a set of tools. It worked pretty well.

I now have a Clarke 100l 10bar compressor with 10mm hose which is BRILLIANT for blowing up tractor tyres, cleaning radiators etc. It cost nearer £500-600 so quite a bit more but I wouldn't be without it. I have a small 25l version here too which comes in useful here and there too as it's portable but I'm glad it's not my only compressor.

Just splay the axle out a bit when you put the wheels on, as the little plugs that should hold the wheels on aren’t strong enough for farm use.

Got a SGS chinese-made one here - early days - seems to do the job. Did break a component and the replacement ("metal") bit was so light it felt like it was plastic! If I was buying again I`d pay more for one made in Europe!! Some staff at SGS lacked a bit of tact too...!:mad:
As a matter of interest it looks VERY like the cheaper one`s from Machine Mart.....;)

Air industrial equipment. UK made. Good back up when needed. They can advise what'll do your job no bother. Support British where you can.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
