For applications where water contains solids, centrifugal trash pumps are recommended. The TDS-HA and TED-HA models are self-priming pumps powered by OHV Honda petrol engines with oil alerts. They are housed within a protective tubular steel, easy carry frames and anti-vibration rubbers. All models are fitted with silicon carbide and ceramic mechanical seals and are supplied with hose couplings, washers, clips and strainers, but hoses are extra. Maximum suction lift is 8m, however 6m or less is recommended.
TDS-50HA and TDS-80HA are semi-trash pumps. The pump housing features elongated bolts for easy removal using the special tool supplied. These models are able to handle 20mm solids in suspension.
The TED series are heavy-duty trash pumps of traditional design. The pump housings incorporate inspection covers, which can be quickly released by undoing two hand nuts, thus allowing ready access to the impeller.
A dual fuel LPG conversion kit will enable the Honda engine to run on a propane cylinder bottle, but with the option to switch back to petrol if required. Using gas reduces running costs and lowers emissions without any loss of performance. Gas also avoids the problems caused by stale fuel in an engine left unused for long periods and the hazards of petrol storage and refuelling. Supplied in kit form, with step-by-step instructions, they are easy to fit without any special tools.
