Pump makes light work of siphoning

IN-FIELD, hand pumping of diesel from barrel to combine harvester is a pain – both in terms of time and effort.

ITT Jabsco says its Fuelmaster 40 portable pump is ideally suited to such applications, and is capable of transferring up to 100 litres (22gal) of diesel in three minutes.

Powered from the vehicles battery, the lightweight Fuelmaster is a self-priming, sliding vane pump. It comes complete with hoses, trigger nozzle, strainer and carrying/storage frame, and is priced from £195 (01992-450145).
