40 vs. 100

Would it be worth it to buy the K-pump 40 over the 100? Sure greater volume and the 2 pumping modes would be nice, but is it worth more then double the price???

As I was using my pump yesterday to top off my boat, I noted to someone how nice it is to have the handle. I didn't realize until recently that they all don't come with it, and I don't think I'd like a k pump without one at all.

The 100 is top-off only, and you'll be hating life if you have to use that for any significant volume. The 40/400 is essentially two pumps, one inside the other. I bought the 40 instead of 400 because I wanted a more compact pump.

I like my 40 as a top off pump, but I would hate to fill anything with it.
