It might be a step up in name, but the components are all the same (At least the motors and the pumps, which is all that matters). They run fast (RPM wise.. at least the 5hp 2 stages do), but they work.
You'll save about $1000 as well.. But you'll have no warranty.. You have to make that choice yourself.
I guess the guy at belaire lie to me about the pumps..
He said the motors where the same motors,, But ''NOT'' the pumps..
Here's their contact ,, You might want to make sure about that pump... http://www.belairecompressors.com/contact.html
