    Default Looking for gas powered dairy pump

    Let me know what you have. Thinking of putting new bush on line, about 400-500 taps. Would prefer a dairy pump with gas engine as electricity is not an option. Feel free to DM

    Thanks

    Thanks all, I have an extra sp-22 also that I think I will just convert. Engine availability looks like an issue like everything else. Even predator engines are back ordered

    I am interested in your sp-22. How much are you asking for it? And is there any chance that you are going to LEME this year? Please PM me.

    I can't believe how many functioning Sp22s are still out there. I've been pulling 28 inches on mine for 6 years with a fan on it with no issues.
    2016- 50 buckets. Made 4 gallons
    2017- 100 buckets, 50 taps on 3/4 mainline and 3/16th tubing + shurflo vacuum. Made 30 gallons.
    2018- 1000 taps on 3/16 + vacuum, 60 buckets - made 378 gallons of syrup.
    2019- 1713 taps on 3/16 + vacuum, NO buckets. Made 500 gallons.
    2020- 2793 taps made 1118 gallons.
    2021- 3300 taps made 900 gallons.

    i also have 2 standalone pumps- a Delaval 73 and a Surge Alamo 100, they need vanes/bearings but are good pumps still.
    also a Surge Alamo 100 with a gas engine ready to go if anyone is looking.

    Try Northern Tool, it looks like they have Hondas in horizontal shaft. I suggest about a 389CC. I used a 240CC on a Surge 75, it used almost2x the fuel that I needed when I ran the same pump on a 389CC. I removed the original tanks and set up a 4.5 gal generator replacement tank when I had the 240CC engine, it ran for about 17 hrs, on about 2/3 throttle. When I swapped the engine for a 389CC, I added a second tank, both at the same level, on a stand I built beside the pump and both were tee'd together. Then in use I discovered the bigger engine used less gas than the 240 to run the same pump. It got almost 30 hrs on 4.5 gal of gas. I did run it at maybe 45% of full throttle and had a bigger drive pulley on it. After the first fill up, I never again used the second tank, I just closed the shutoff for that tank.
    Dave Klish about 400 taps, down from much more. Retired from collecting and boiling in 2021. Mostly because of a bad hip.
