Forrers 6" x 8" DUPLEX piston pump - everything about this pump is BIG!

 
 
 
 
 

Do you need 6000 gallons an hour at a head of 500 feet - do you have room to install this pump and stand (with provision for an engine) which is 2.9 m long, 1.5 m wide and 1.9 m high - will you appreciate and preserve the engineering which delivered us this gem?

Posterity almost demands that equipment such as this marvellous pump should be preserved in working condition as a tribute to our forefathers - can you imagine installing this monster by the available water source with the now-rudimentary equipment available at the time of its manufacture?? One suspects a few harsh words were muttered at times!!

This machine is not the only one we have seen of its size, but it is the only one we have been able to attain. It is literally a double pump except for the air/vacuum chambers. The carrier who brought it to sunny Qld for us stated that it weighs 1.7 tonnes - and that is without any power source.

We cannot adequately describe this pump - we would encourage you to come and have a look if at all possible so that you can appreciate its size ... and you really will be convinced that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder".

This pump has been sandblasted and undercoated. We have not yet done anything else with it, so should you be looking for an amazing pump to recondition and put to work or one to create massive interest around the show circuit, this pump will do it for you and is now available.
