There seems to be very few mains powered pumps available. Anyone got one and recommend one?

Had this one a year and extremely pleased with it - not available on Amazon at the moment

Thanks Peter. Why are there so few to choose from. If you search Amazon for 'mains tyre pump' or '240v tyre pump' you get hundreds of 12v ones, why can't Amazon give what you want. 
There's one on there called Wolfair Dynamite , reasonably priced. Ring do (did) one I think it is RAC660 but can't find any for sale.

Paul check out the sgs engineering website and look for 6 litre oil less compressors such as the mighty mini sc6s. Has a 6 litre reserve  tank and could be used for more than just blowing up tyres. Very handy at the size.... I have used them in the past and they were ok to deal with.

I have the same pump as recommended by Peter. Works fine, though not especially fast. For a car tyre, I find it takes about 5 seconds per pound of added pressure. Did research before buying, and am pleased with outcome.

The tube to the valve connector, and the mains cable, are meant to store in little flap-covered spaces, but it's difficult, and pointless, to bother to restore every time. Just leave them loose. As usual, the gauge is not much use, but I overinflate a bit, and adjust using a tyre pressure gauge.

I'd certainly buy again.

I can't for the life of me think why electric tyre pumps designed for pumping up vehicle tyres would almost all be 12V.   confused3 scratch head   

240V would be absolutely fine for me.

Thanks for responses, still researching different models.

Thanks Peter, I had found that. Halfords sell Michelin one and Sport Direct sell Sondico one (supposedly for inflating footballs) but the spec doesn't give max pressure. I'm still hoping someone can recommend one they have. Peter Brown has the one he posted about but it's not available now. The SGS one Kaspian posted looks good but it doesn't come with the pressure hose, with the kit as an accessory the price is over £100.

Yes Roger, we posted at same time. That's looking favourite, but wish I could get a personal recommendation for it.

The one I posted is mention in Peter Brown's link as an updated version?

So the rac750 is no longer made and replaced by the 660?

Remember the Sgs one is really for home use as it will be physically bigger  .It will literally blow all the others into the weeds (pun intended!)  as they are toys by comparison delivering a larger volume of air at pressure with a small 6 litre reserve. I have seen air starter kits in Lidl for about £14 contained hose , connectors, tyre inflator, blow gun and possibly paraffin wash gun. Try machine mart screwfix  and toolstation for possible alternatives etc It really depends on whether you want a mains powered unit for taking in the van or a small compact unit that will cope with topping off  4 van tyres in seconds at home with the option of some handy  accessories.

Thanks Kaspian, didn't realise you could mix brands of accessories. I don't want to take it away with me (where would I store it?!) just want it for home use. Not that much of a diy-er so only need the tyre fittings.

OK in that case I would go for the one that does the job quickly  without standing round for an age waiting .
Yes with  cheap air kits they normally come with euro or PCl hose  connectors and both are easy to obtain  but not interchangeable but can be converted easily.
Just checked sgs website and see    Product Code: SC8H-K1  
 £88.79 inc. vat  free delivery with full air tool kit .  Funnily enough most others are showing sold out so stock replenishment must be an issue

Maybe not what you're after Paul, but I've had one of these for 3 years now. I find it's excellent for topping up tyres. I have many vehicles and can check all the tyres without any trailing wires, 12volt or mains.
It'll also jump start my van bikes or car if necessary, has USB and cigar type sockets as well as an inverter and work lights.

Ordered one this morning. Looks identical to one I've seen on Amazon (different brand name) but I like the 3 year warranty of Aldi. Thanks for watching out for me.

Anybody thinking about the SGS kit, it's worth noting that the tyre inflator included with the accessory kit is not capable of inflating tyres up to 80 psi. The maximum operating pressure of the inflator is only around 4bar. You need to purchase an additional inflator from them that can operate around 8bar. The compressor and the inflator hose is up to the job.
