Model No. 2, which is suitable for inflating the largest giant pneumatic or ordinary car tyre, carries a similar equipment, with the addition of a standard electric motor for 200-250 volts D.C. This unit, is monnted.on a substantial cast-iron base provided with rubber-tyred swivel wheels and 16 ft.' of tyre flex cable, an adapter fos a lamp -socket, and 16 -ft. of delivery hose' with a valve connector.
