Usefull Product

,
September 19, 2014
By Phoneman71
from Upstate NY
"This pump works very well and moved 5 gallons of diesel into my tractor in no time at all. Note: I got this to use for pumping from traditional 5 gallon cans and the filter screen provided for the suction end won't fit into the can opening. Be careful after using it as some fuel stays in the device/hose and will spill if you're not careful."

Easy pump

March 14, 2011
By Whiteboy
from Nuevo Casas Grandes, Chihuahua.Mexico
"In my opinion it is a great item because you just have to put the suction hose into the barrel, connect it to the battery and it's done.If you don't need fuel just leave your barrel at home,shop or any where,it's not necesary to carry every time a big tank on the bed of your truck."

WVO Pump?

,
March 14, 2011
By dendw
from San Diego,CA
"It works well with WVO if warm but struggles if cold or thick with contaminants. Opening the Nozzle to get it going helps but I had to figure this out for myself.
The memory in the hoses is a problem and they need to be longer as does the power cable.

"I bought it for vegtable oil but ended up using it to transfer my heating oil from tank to tank. It worked great and the volume was more than expected. Nice pump! I will probably end up using it for my veggy oil once I need it."

Works Good, but leaks

By sneeoosh

"The pump is excellent, but the discharge hose fittings on both ends leak (drip) no matter how tight the clamp is tightened. I have added another clamp to each end which helps, but still have an occasional drip."

Little Pump...Big Power

"This is a great little pump to transfer WVO hot or cold. The fuse and fuse holder are underated and will need to be replaced with a larger guage wire but works perfect after that."

Great portable pump!!

,
November 18, 2008
By Walker74
from Slapout,Al.
"I love this pump,it's very light and portable.The pump is a bit noisy,but really gets the job done quick.The only draw back is when you release the nozzle while filling,the pump jumps with the change in pressure,so you have to make sure it doesn't vibrate off of where you have it sitting.I give this pump overall an A+ ,I would buy it again for sure!!!"

Not for Grease unless it's hot...

,
November 18, 2008
By Bitz
from Northampton, MA
"I bought this to transfer wvo and it just couldn't handle it. I have to heat the grease up before this will move it and then the hoses that are supplied don't handle heat so they collapse. This would probably be great for diesel but if you're planning on using it for grease find something a little stronger."

Honestly, this system should be priced around $25.

,
November 17, 2008
By davediesel
from Smack dab in the center of New Jersey!
"This pump is only good for clean fluid in warm weather. The rotory-gear pump jams up too easily. I'm already looking for a diaphram pump to replace it.
If you try using this pump below 70degrees, it will blow a fuse every 30sec. or so, due to thicker fluid.
If the strainer gets even a partial clog, the fuse will blow with no warning. Carry a whole box of fuses with you when operating this pump.
The hoses refuse to loose the memory of being coiled up in a box. It's a constant battle with the hoses rolling up as you're trying to use them. I've hung them in the sun, & put a heat gun to them and still they roll up as if they were manufactured to be that way!
The hoses are too short...not by much, maybe 2ft longer on each end to make up for the constant coiling.
The power cord is too short. Double the length...12ft long would be about right. I could replace the cord &/or the hoses with the length I need, but for the cost of the unit, shouldn't it already be that way?
The pump is prone to falling off any table or flat surface you put it on. I think mostly because of the coiled hoses pulling on it. If I planned on further use of this pump, I would mount it to some plywood & weights to give it some stability!

Tuthill diesel transfer pump

,
November 17, 2008
By StarMark
from Phoenix, AZ
"This is a great product for transfering diesel at a great price. It is meant to be transportable. I have found that taking it from site to site leaves a bit of a mess, even if being careful. I have used it for 3-4 months and never had a problem with pumping diesel. It primes right away and pumps fast (50 gallon tank in about 5-10 minutes). I have a goldenrod water block filter attached to it, and it does not make any difference with pressure or time."

By sanford53

"this pump is awesome. the unit worked beyond my expectations. i used it to transfer heating oil from one tank to another. it took me longer to set up than to dispense 125 gallons of fuel. the only thing is the on-line catalog and the paper catalog price was was cheaper than the actual store price. but, still worth the money."
