    When we were pumping from 55 gallon tanks in different locations in the woods (up to 200 feet) and now when we are pumping short distances in the sugar house and to pump water from an ATV tank to clean the collection tanks in the woods we have had great luck with an electric Wayne pump. We use a small generator in the woods and the outlets in the shack. I believe our oldest is probably 20 years old and we have 3 total around to use. We only use them for water, sap, and to empty the evaporator during clean out. No trash pumping.

    We used a generator and a wayne pump for years to collect, a little on the slow side but it gets the job done. I moved up to a red lion 1.5" from tractor supply before finally biting the honda bullet. Currently have a wx-10 and wx-15 in service.
