Rear Tires Inflator
« on: May 17, 2017, 03:36:39 AM »

Greetings from a newbie in Ontario Canada  , just curious what is the preferred rear dually tire inflator everyone here is using or recommending

Thank you  ....... Vinny

Edit : The only ones with a long neck and forward/reverse filling valve I've seen in local stores have a digital
readout to read the pressure which IMHO are a gimmick since they probably require a battery for the display
and will most likely break easily when tossed in my toolbox or behind the seat

Not sure if I understand 100% but if you mean an air chuck that can reach the inside duals, I've always preferred one with a long fixed metal stem.  Milton Inflator Gauge like the #S-506 is one of my all-time favorites plus the gauge section is rebuildable.  It can reach in through the hand holes and hook backwards into the valve stem for the inner dual.  Run you about $35 if you shop around a little, but will last a lifetime if cared for.


If you've got simulators on there, just about nothing works.  Gotta remove them which is a real pain and will cut down on how often you check your tires.  Or, get some of those little braided stainless extension hoses so you can mount it on the simulator.

Thank you Richard , that's exactly what I was looking for
Something simple but well built , not yet available at my local Princess auto store but perhaps available soon
Tough it's $80 Canadian that store often has sales on all their products

I was also thinking I might eventually want to try and get a Milton S-693-12 1/4" FNPT Extended Reach Dual Head Air Chuck , which is quite longer then the one that comes standard on the Milton s-506 inflator , but according to Milton's description this is not an extension for the s-506 inflator/gauge but it's a standalone ..... (I wonder)

Thank you ...... Vin

Edit : while I'm waiting for the Milton inflator to show up at my local Princess Auto store I found this one
on sale at Crappie Tire for $20 , at least now I can fill my inner rear tires .... ehehe


Cheers ...... Vin
