Only thing I can tell you is with a larger capacity when the strokes get harder it takes a LOT more to top one back up . Pump up an Air Force gun just once ….And your pump will be on classifieds next day :)
There’s a really good chance I’m older than you but I’m a big guy , and at least above average strong . And believe me hand pumping is something I wouldn’t wish on anyone . Unless they simply can’t get access to compressed air to fill a tank . The only other thing would be when pressure really gets past say 2500psi it is a struggle , and bigger tank would probably wear pump seals faster
