The 5" is an awesome pump. Standing at 27 1/2" I doesn't kill my 6' 5" back to pump up the boats. The 1 1/2" wide handle is easy to grip, and does flex. The hose end fits snug in most valves. The pump is fairly easy to maintain and rebuild. The hose is a pain to store if you bring it on multi-day trips.
Great pump: fast and durable
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Used these commercially on the Colorado and Green. These are very fast- average time to pump a tandem ducky was around 5 mins and its not as comfortable as an electric blower but I have used these to pump 18 oar rigs. The pressure is very good for topping off boats. These lasted quite a few years under heavy commercial use. I will be getting one of my own eventually but until then my K-pump will have to do. (ps I love the K-pump 200 but would want to pump an oar rig with it)
Barrel pumps are definitely worth the money. The NRS 5in Barrel Pump has been great.
Big rig approved
I just got an 18' Aire cat, and had to get a big pump. Been using a cheaper double action for years on my old raft, but after using this once, knew I shoulda got a big pump years ago. Switching off with my wife, we were able to pump both tubes up firm in just over 10 minutes. You know what they say about big tubes..... you need a big pump!
