  • Rigid 18V Digital Inflator R87044

    I have a Rigid 18V Digital Inflator R87044. My problem is it sometimes it doesn't work on Auto mode. I set the tire pressure I want and it will start, but then stops after a second or two. I know the tire hasn't reached the pressure I set. Has anyone else had this problem? It works on manual, but it's a pain because it doesn't give an accurate reading while pumping. Does anyone know a "fix" for this? Thanks for any advice/info. Regards, Danny

    " Does anyone know a "fix" for this?"

    Buy a better quality brand. JK of course, but I hope this is an isolated incident and not
    something that happens to all these inflators. I know that doesn't help you and your
    situation though.

    I bought two of them not long ago so the Wife could have one in each vehicle. I wanted
    her to have something easy to operate, just dial in the pressure and go. Even if it's not
    dead-on accurate it would be ballpark and get her somewhere with help. I keep a tire
    gauge in each vehicle but she doesn't like using those.

    So far ours have been fine, but I only used each of them once when I first bought them.
    Tested on battery and using the DC power cord then packed them up in the car.

    The one 'tool' that should come in a case and doesn't, I used a couple soft cases I had hung
    on to from other RIDGID tools to bag them up so I could keep all the pieces together in the car.

        I've got 2 of them and neither have this issue. I'd get it replaced under warranty if I were you.

            Not been a problem for me as I keep them for emergency in the car and no battery, use the DC power cord only.
