RAM Pump - Number 10 - and they don't come any bigger than this one!!!

 
 

Have you ever wanted to pump water for your farm or home without needing to use fuel or electricity and only undertaking limited maintenance?? Well ... this very rare Number 10 Billabong RAM pump will do that for you!! This particular Number 10 was made especially for a north Queensland tablelands railway station so there is some history attached to it as well!!

It hadn't been used for many years when it was found some time back, bought and reconditioned by its most recent owner - he put a new stainless steel shaft in it and updated the bushes to Teflon. It has been used for quite a few years, but noise complaints from a neighbour has, sadly, now seen it decommissioned - but that means that it is now available for you!! In its most recent installation, it was pumping 3000 gallons per day to a head of just over 150 feet into a holding dam. The most recent owner believes that it will pump around 6000 gallons a day at a head of 90-100 feet.

 

The pump has a four inch drive pipe and a two inch outlet pipe. It requires 10 feet of fall on the drive ram to achieve a head of 100 feet, or a 1:10 ratio to a maximum head of 250 feet. It comes complete with a stainless steel water strainer to fit the four inch inlet pipe and is approximately 10 inches wide and 1 metre long. If "peace and quiet" is also an issue at your place, building a "sound insulating box" would keep the peace for you.

 

RAM pumps of this size are now only built to special orders, so if you would like a new one, $25,000+, plus freight will get one for you from the manufacturers!! It would be possible to install TWO Number 7s at an approximate cost of $6000 each, but you still would not get the capacity as this Number 10!

 

The pump is in Queensland and can be delivered - and we have received information from the manufacturers which will provide info/help with the installation at your place. Contact us when convenient to discuss purchase price and other relevant details!
