Most of those single stage pumps use reed valves and there really is nothing uncommon about stainless for the material. 11.2 CFM@90PSI and 3.6 HP, at least they are being honest about the numbers which is a refreshing change! IMO the Puma would be the better choice because, IMO anyway, the V type pumps work better and run cooler which means better efficiency = higher CFM per HP. Puma also has built a fairly decent reputation for reliability and even though I have never used one the two that I know of look like they are well built and the owners speak quite highly of them.
