'Track' Pump recommendations

The hose on my trusty but rusty Wrench Force track pump (with gauge) has decided to call it quits after 7 years.
I'm not sure if it is economical or even possible just to replace the hose and head but I'm assuming I will require a complete new pump.

I was thinking Joe Blow but read mixed reviews (especially regarding the dual head)and considered Lezynne but maybe they're overpriced?

That said, what should I buy?

I have had a joe blow pump for about 6 years now & it still works & looks like new.
Didnt cost much at the time & works well up to about 120 psi too.

The only other pump i have owned is silca, very nice pump for high pressures (180psi) but not so great for large volume mtb tires. have owned this pump for 15 years or so & is still my favourite.

Cheers Bruce.
I left my Silca pump back in the old country, had it for years too...

UPDATE: In the end I went with a Lezyne CNC alloy pump from a local supplier.
Works a treat although the fancy screw-on chuck has a tendency to unwind the valve cores...

Hey Neil, just spray a little silicon lube, graphite dust or even olive oil on the thread and that will will solve binding on the valve. At the end of the day it's aluminium binding so a little lube will go a long way - months and months, while you still get a better seal!

Thanks for the tip Peter. I'll give that a try.

I thought you after Pump Track recommendations. Imagine my surprise when I discovered it was about Track Pumps. Luckily I saw the funny side.

A Pump Track yesterday

Would love to give it a try but an old fart like me would break a hip or something....
