Review Summary

Ryobi’s P731 is a great portable inflator that can take the laborious job of inflating things away from you and can deflate them just as quickly when you’re done. It works at a range from 0-100 psi and with a special adapter can inflate bicycle tires. It’s a much better deal than a regular air compressor, but once you start maxing out its range you’ll find that its performance drops of pretty quickly.

Inflates and deflates most things around the house

From basketballs to air mattresses to inflatable pools, the P731 is suitable to do the heavy, tedious work of inflating most of your household possessions. With the right adapter, it’ll even inflate bicycle tires. Its pressure range is up to 100 psi, so anything you have below that is within the P731’s capabilities.

Accurate inflation

The P731 comes with a digital readout that you can program with your desired inflation pressure and it will let you know to within a pound of when you’ve reached it. This not only guarantees that you don’t underfill an air mattress, but that you don’t overfill it, too. That prevents damage to your items, stretches out their lifespans and in the long run can save you money.

More affordable than an air compressor

You could go out and purchase an air compressor for a much wider range of jobs that also top out at the top end of being heavy duty. You could do that, and you could spend a lot of money in the process. On the other hand, this costs much less and is suitable to fill just about all of your basic household inflation needs from bouncy balls to inflatable pools. With a quick adjustment, it’ll deflate all of them just as quickly.

Conclusion

Ryobi’s P731 is a great solution to your home air inflation needs. No longer do you need to dread company visiting and the inevitable frustration of pumping up the air mattress, or emptying it when the visit is over. This will do that for you. It’s great for people who don’t have really substantial inflation needs for whom a regular air compressor is just simply far too much tool to warrant the investment, and it costs a whole lot less money. It also comes with a digital readout so that you can make sure that you get just the right air pressure. Be aware that if your job requires a whole lot of air pressure that the performance of this will die off pretty quickly towards the top end of its scale.
