Accutire ACCUTIRE Mechanic's Digital Tire Gauge
* Extra large Red backlit LCD * Rubberized handle * Replaceable battery included * 5 to 150 PSI in 1/2 lb units
I have had this gauge for several years. It is accurate and durable. I would not hesitate to purchase another one or recommend its purchase to a friend. Normally I would not suggest a digital pressure gague when a manual one would do, but this one is easy to use and it has held up side-to-side with several manual gauges over the long haul. Keeping it on hand in the truck is a no-brainer! And as an added feature it is accurate to over 100 PSI, something that has caused a problem with cheapo gauges in the past.
Do not waste your money! I bought 3 of these for my vehicles. And in each one I used it successfully for ONE READING before it stopped working. Every time following the first the reading was 99.9!
If your going to get a gauge I suggest spending a little more and getting a higher quality product.
The internal lithium battery fails prematurely. Sears guarantees the units for only 90 days. The manufacturer says the internal battery has a lifetime guarantee, and that it will be replaced if the unit is returned. The unit I returned was not repaired and sent back to me. Counting the postage to return the failed unit, I'm a two-time loser on these. I've had two of these units fail in the last two years.
Had for years and still works. Trouble keeping a good seal sometimes.
It has already saved us a bunch of money. One of our boat trailer tires looked fine but was actually low on air. A quick check showed it only had 20 pounds of pressure instead of 40. Since this is a tandem axle trailer, the other tire was supporting the majority of the weight, which was over its load rating. Had the "full" tire overheated and ruptured, the "low" tire would have followed quickly. Trailer tires run about $140 each, so I figure this $14.95 investment saved us about $280 plus mounti
we recommend this to our biker friends b/c it is so much better than the pencil style. easy to fit where it needs to get and easy to read the pressure. ours has been beaten over the years but still works well.
Only gauge to use for low pressure tires, like lawn tractors and atv's. Can't be beat for the price.
Very handy device; however, the description for the product does not explain how high of a pressure reading one can get with this guage; some of us want to use a guage like this for pool equipment pressure and bicycle tire pressure, not just auto tire pressure
This thing is surprisingly durable and long lasting. I have had it for at least 10 years and it still works perfectly after many drops and even a car accident.
Everyone should have a tire gauge and be able to use it. This one is easy and cheap.
