Wow! Date:

I have the .75 HP model and this 4.0 HP model. I primarily use it to inflate 18" Omnikin balls. The .75 model takes a couple of minutes per ball, this model takes less than 10 seconds. It is amazingly fast.

Great Inflator/ Bad hose Date:
Overall Rating
The inflato/deflator is very good and inflates stability balls in no time. Unfortunately if your doing several at a time the hose connection gets warms and slids off the nozzle.

Powerful, but gets hot. Date:
Overall Rating
This inflator is powerful and inflates quickly. However, after inflating several beach balls, the unit became so hot that it was difficult to touch the on/off switch without burning my fingers. After about 20 minutes, the hose melted at the end which attaches to the inflator. My guess is that the narrow adapter (for smaller inflatables like beach balls) restricts air flow through the inflator, causing it to overheat. I should also mention that the adapter "popped off" the hose end when the inflator was first turned on with a lot of force. Fortunately, it was not pointed at my face or anyone else nearby. There is a lock button on the unit itself which secures the adapters, but none on the hose. I think such a button should have been incorporated into the hose for safety, since the hose is used in most situations. My suggestion to anyone using this inflator is to take care to tighten the nozzle firmly on the hose before using it. I would not recommend this product unless it would be used on larger inflatables only, Hope these comments are helpful.

Sport Tips

Which type of inflator is right for me?

Manual: Designed for smaller balls such as basketballs, volleyballs, etc. Requires no electricity or batteries but takes more time to inflate, making them great for casual use. 

Electric: Designed for fast inflation of smaller balls such as basketballs, volleyballs, etc. Most models require electricity but will provide a quicker inflation time and come in a variety of models to suit your usage needs. For ultimate portability, a battery-powered inflator is also available.

Air Compressor: Designed for inflation of almost anything and ultimate portability for on-the-go inflation. 

Large-Ball Inflator: Specifically designed to quickly inflate large balls and cage balls. A more powerful engine will deliver a faster inflation time.
