Engine:

Engine options available are in diesel and petrol from the following manufacturers

      Honda petrol: 5.5 to 6.5hp OHV horizontal shaft petrol engine 

      with oil alert.

      Yanmar diesel: 4.8 to 6.8hp air-cooled direct fuel injected diesel

       engine, with low vibration levels.

   

 Installation:

The pump is designed to be installed in a horizontal position on the back of a utility of truck. These self priming pumps require water in the pump case only for the initial pumping operation.    No water is necessary for subsequent pumping when the casing contains water.   To recharge the tank, it is only a simple matter of running the suction hose supplied with the unit to a source of clean water.    Make sure that the suction height is no more than 5m – a shorter suction distance will speed up the recharging of the tank.    With a build in bypass system to prevent shutoff head conditions.

 

Caution: These pumps should never be run dry!
