    Full enough, dude...roll with it.

    Even if he did overinflate it, he'd be alright since he's got his hi-viz safety britches on.

    I think he wanted the track to be round.

    But seriously, what was the hose hooked to?

    An air bag. Used frequently to lift stuff so you can access for fixin. Think of it as a type of lever or jack. Shove a deflated air bag into a tight space, pump up, and yada yada yada...

    It was probably attached to a grease fitting. There is a spring in the frame that, when filled with grease, pushes against the idler wheel to adjust tension on the track.

    So they are trying to free a stuck track tensioner with a bicycle pump? That’s just as redneck as the joke I thought this was :).
