I had a Bauer Jr. which pumped air quite well. There were some problems though...
20 min. fill times for HP tanks.
Really loud. I wore ear protectors allot.
Not marinized... most nuts, bolts, and hardware are not stainless. You have to replace them yourself.
It spewed a few little carbon bits onto the deck which are hard to clean. The mild steel muffler starts shedding rust eventually. I looked for an aftermarket replacement but couldn't find one.
I would buy another Bauer though because it never so much as coughed and everybody lived...
There is a slightly larger called an Oceanus that pumps faster which is the one I would get if I were to do it again.
