Is it any use to you guys that have Makita cordless inflator pump kit?
Why would it be of interest to someone who already owns one? I agree it`s a silly price. Processed ham?

Reckon so.
Reported to admin, in case you haven't already done so.

It makes you wonder why the spammers bother. I mean, this person's probably spent hours registering on numerous forums and posting this advert, and how many sales will result from somebody clicking the link? Not many, I'll bet. The price of this is likely to deter anybody browsing the rest of the website to buy anything else.

Andrew.

Various reasons which may not be immediately apparent. For example, the more hits a site such as this has then possibly the higher it shall appear in search results, meaning when you search for, say, a power tool, this site may be competing with the Screwfixes and the Toolstations of the online world, instead of languishing as a lowly result on search page 6. I mean, you clicked on the link after all, and actually so did I! We have both helped Mr. Toolden. And so will many others.

Also the hosts may give bonuses for increased traffic, and some sites/adverts get paid per hit. Various reasons, see?

Seriously though I could do with a cordless inflator for my air mattress.

I have been using air from my lungs, but I feel now I am ready to transition to a cordless inflator.

This 'air mattress' of yours: is it pink with arms and legs and a totally unrealistic wig? :xd:
