Review of Heyner Pedalmax Double Barrel Foot Air Pump
As well as plug-in car tyre inflators we have tested out a double barrel foot pump just in case you don't have a car cigarette lighter. This review is about the Heyner Pedalmax Foot Pump.
Just in case you don't have a cigarette lighter, we have reviewed this Heyner Pedalmax foot pump. One of the great things about this device is that if I want to pump up anything away from a car, I can do that.
This foot pump can inflate up to 140PSI which is more than the others we have tested. It has a 60cm air hose to connect to what you want. Another great thing about this pump is that it comes with a flip lock valve connector. You can connect this to both presta and schraeder valves with it's two valve options.
Like the Ring tyre air compressor we have also reviewed it comes with an analogue pressure gauge. So as you pump up and inflate your cars tyres or other inflatables, you will see the needle move up as the pressure increases.
It is easy to keep an eye on as the pump is very stable under your feet and works tremendously well. Because it's a double pump it is more than capable of inflating your cars tyres, but it would take a long time if it was from a flat tyre.
We recommend you use another type of instrument to check the actual pressure of your tyres once pumped up. It is always better to double check for safety reasons.
One of the worst things with this foot pump is when you are pumping, the clip that holds it in a locked position (when you are not using it) gets bent and hit with the foot pedal you are using to pump.
- Don't need a car cigarette lighter to inflate a cars tyre
- Double barrel has plenty of air going through it when pumping an inflatable up
- Seems well built and sturdy when pumping with your foot
- Easy to see pressure guage
- Lock hook gets hit when pumping and becomes unusable
- Can take a while to inflate a car tyre
- Valve can be a bit flimsy and not lock in to place fully
This foot pump is good as a foot pump, but is obviously harder to use than plugging in a car electric tyre inflator. It has a small design flaw with it's lock hook but will inflate bicycle tyres as well as car and motorcycle tyres.
