    Had it tip over in the loadal bucket when taking it to blow a trailer tyre up newly writing it off (managed to find a similar pump that fit) so the old man decided to make a sack truck/wheelbarrow/compressor love child with a bit of gutter bracket thrown in the mix as well.

    I've heard that an ex gas bottle makes a good 'reservoir' for taking compressed air out to the field etc. :whistle:
    Less chance of damage if it falls over. :)

    The old man is on first name terms with the air ambulance pilot as it is without him messing around with welders and propane bottles :facepalm:

    Just unscrew the brass tap and fit an elbow, a ball valve and a female airline coupling.
     
  11. I’ve tried to remove the brass fitting from gas bottles several times but can never undo them. I just end up smashing them off.

    A super single wheel at 90psi will blow up a flat 600/65 38 to 20psi!

    Never done it but might be left handed.

    Right hand thread on the 47kg propane ones I've done. Lots of thin oil and gentle pressure on stilsons with long pipe.
     
  15. Oh, ok.

    Don’t think I’ve tried that.

    No wonder super single blowouts kill people every year!

    The top of the joystick snapped off 2000 hours ago. Yellow tape from a farm sale box and used old sheep tags and glue to splint the repair 20190308_155132.jpg

    That much air in a relatively small tyre! Google tyre accidents, all the bad ones are SS’s.



    Only the last one looks to be a SS but all examples, the one with a split rim makes me cringe!
