    Yes, you don't want to be pumping 300 pounds into your tire, that may only hold 32 pounds of pressure unless you are in the market for a new one.

    I don't think the guy is just going to put the inflator on the tire and hold it there until it explodes.

    If the 1st stage pressure unexpectedly rises out of control without any escape mechanism, the LP inflator hose will fail in a rather dramatic and unpredictable manner.

    Pistons work better for filling tires or running tools/airbrushes etc.
    They flow a lot more gas than diaphragms.

    It would only take a few seconds.

    Depends on how big the tire is.

    Normal shop compressors put out 100-150 PSI as a rule. IP is normally 140-150 PSI. It takes about the same time to fill a tire either way.

    You're not too far from me, depending on where in or around Albany you live. I probably have a yoke first stage I haven't thrown out that you can have for free. I can look later. PM me if interested.
