For sale is a Bauer K14 compressor. Manual moisture drain valves, includes 10HP single phase motor, this compressor has low hours, (300'ish) originally it sat as a backup compressor and wasn't used for quite some time. More pics can be shared upon request. Compressor can pump to 5000 PSI, however I only filled my cascade banks to 3800 PSI, so unit was babied.

The 10HP motor is approx 1 year old, and has 30 HRS on it, confirmed with hour meter. Willing to sell just the compressor if the motor isn't needed. PM for any questions, or details. Compressor is located in Pennsylvania, but I can arrange shipping.
asking price $5,000.

Can you take a picture of the data plate on the front of the chain case?

10-04, most of the tech's that I have talked to have said that they won't take that generation of pumps up past about 3600psi because the cooling coils will blow

I called a few tech's about this model and got some more back story on it. While it can pump to 5K its not suggested as was mentioned. I am adjusting the price as its not suggested to pump this to 5K, Price adjusted to $3500.00.
10-04, my understanding is that it's the cooling coils and cooling design of the pump itself. Block can take it, but there is no cooling of the heads with that design and the coils were not rated to 5k
