A one-off special - not another one like it in captivity anywhere.
What a sight to behold. Twin helical gears and pinions are in absolutely amazing condition.
This power end has been sitting in our warehouse, unloved and unusable, for far too long.
Some machining magic and ingenuity (not ours) have now made it into a complete unit.
You won't find another like this one and to say that it is "something different" is quite the understatement.
The power end has had a Forrers 6" x 6" wet end grafted onto it by our very clever machinist.
To do so, the necessary engineering adjustments have been made eg, the piston rod had to be specially made and is longer than that for a standard 6" x 6" pump, etc.
Rob McPhail began the process and though it has taken us over 8 years it is now complete & has been worth the wait.
The gear end is very substantial - look at that housing!
Together with the Forrers wet-end, you are looking at approximately 500 kg.
Inside, it is driven by twin helical-cut gears in beautiful condition ... and the pinion gears are equally as good.
We don't know what makes the gear end, but you need only take one look to know that it is a piece of quality engineering.
This pump has been fitted with:
- Standard new Wet-End Kit (Buckets, Valves, Springs, Gaskets & Packing)
- New parts:
- Piston Rod
- Centre Plate
- End Plate
Being helical-geared, this pump turns oh so very, very smoothly - you've heard the Big-O, Roy Orbison, sing ... well this pump is every bit as smooth.
NOTE: The gearbox photos were taken prior to the unit being undercoated.
The power end of this pump has been on our website since we purchased our initial "job lot" of pumps and parts from the estate of Rob McPhail, Yandina, Qld in April 2012. The power end, as it came to us, remains on our website as Pump Y8.
Suction and discharge on this pump is 3.0".
Our information says that it has:
- A head of 250 feet
- At 60 strokes per minute it will deliver 4300 gallons per hour (almost 20,000L)
This one-of-a-kind pump can be sent to your place so that you can put it to work.
