R260XL Model - High Capacity Surface Breathing Regulator Compressor

For 2 Divers

The R260XL is a large, single-head compressor that equals, or betters in delivered air, the other guy's double-head. Can be serviced by you---in the field---in 15 minutes, with just three common hand tools and that, after hundreds and hundreds of hours of faithful service. Too water-logged? About 1,000 Thomas service facilities in North America alone. The Owner's Manual, however, is quite specific in the care and feeding of baby.

The R260XL is powered by Honda's 4 HP, 4-cycle (no mixing), motor. One of the most popular motors in the world, with thousands of service facilities. With a capacity of just 2-1/2 quarts of gas, it will run continually for three hours. Put four people on the system and you've effectively eliminated 12, count em, 12 scuba tanks.

Hello, we can ship to an FPO Parcel Post most likely but as for service in Europe none that we are aware of. Hope this helps.
