A fantastic high-head pump in its working clothes but efficient - Delivered to Lismore in NSW.


It has an extra air chamber on the discharge side and a genuine Southern Cross electric 3 hp motor fitted. There are some pumps that are always in demand and this Southern Cross 2.5" x 5" high-head pump is up there with the best of them.

This pump has been:

  • Stripped down
  • Sandblasted
  • Repainted

This pump has been fitted with:

  • New parts:
    • Valve Rubbers
    • Springs
    • Gaskets
  • Cylinder Liner has been honed.
  • Valves have been refaced.

This pump has the added benefit of having a large, extra air chamber on the discharge side of the pump to help overcome any friction that may happen when pumping to such a high head.

The electric motor attached is 3 hp and is a genuine Southern Cross build - they last forever and this one has been completely checked out and is fully operational.

The configuration of the wet-end makes these pumps very heavy! Attached is a PDF document showing more detail of the configuration of the valve setup - the assembly is complete in the first photos and the components and gradual fit-out is progressively shown from the last to first photos.
