Why should I choose TrunkPump?
Low maintenance and ease of use are the main reasons. If you don’t like maintaining a gas-powered pump and are tired of lugging one around, TrunkPump might be the right choice for you.
So, it just hooks up to my tractor?
Yes, it attaches to your Category 1 three-point hitch and is powered by the Power Take Off (PTO).
What about horsepower requirements?
Our largest pump (4”) requires 15hp, the others only 8hp. Most compact tractors have more than enough power to run a TrunkPump.
Sounds pretty simple, how does it work?
It is simple, by design. TrunkPump takes the power from your tractor, reverses the rotation and increases rpms from 540rpm up to 3500rpm to power the pump. All this is done on a sturdy platform for easy and safe transport.
What’s this I hear about a hydraulic version?
After years of requests we now offer a hydraulically driven model that is powered by the remote hydraulics from a variety of compact equipment—from a Bobcat® down to the Dingo® that ate my baby.
Are there any special requirements for the hydraulic model?
The hydraulic model requires 9gpm of hydraulic flow at 1250psi.
What if I’ve got less or more flow than that?
If you’ve got less flow the pump will run at low speed and not work properly. If you have more flow our priority flow manifold sends a priority flow of 9gpm/1250psi to the pump and the excess returns to your hydraulic source.
