I have blown up flat tyres with a divers air gun, the type you bend the rubber end to allow air out! Just held it up tight against the valve! But you could do the same with a hose coming off the reg & holding it tight up against the valve & turning on the air!

Bu**erd if I can remember, long time ago I covered the low pressure ports pressures! Did this years ago to blow the tubes up on the rib, but do not do this any more as I understand it can over inflate too easily!

No I wasn’t worried about over pressure or anything like that it just struck me as a good idea and I was trying to work out if you could simple attach a tyre inflator or if you would have to do something clever to drop the pressure further Currently I use an old fire extinguisher pumped up from my compressor to fill tyres etc but really it is only good for one tyre because it is only 12 litres at 100psi. But a dive cylinder at 3000 psi could be useful Des

In a two stage reg.. the "low pressure" side is around 10 bar....

...just connect it up to a cheap "Clarkes" tyre inflator and away you go...

I thinks simple attach a tyre inflater would work as the pressure is not that great, but I have used it with a hose just coming off a old reg! In this case you I used the tap on the cylinder to regulate the flow which works well!
But I have also used one of my diving regs with a air gun attached to the low pressure hose & inflated tyres using the gun!
Hope that all made sense
Nick

Old Ali cylinders have a problem with hair line cracks, best keep to steel. Inspection interval recently changed to 2.5 years for steel, Ali, well you just don't want to go there.

Not sure of the volume of a landie tyre, but if its 25L x 30 psi thats 2 bar (ish)so you need 50L of air to inflate. Regulator 2nd stage won't work below 10 bar so something like this will hold 600L of air and would do 4 tyres and not require 2 hands to carry.
