If you own a tractor, you can use a power take-off (PTO) pump to move some serious water. Whether you work on a farm or a golf course, your water pumping needs are different than most.
Small portable pumps just aren't big enough to pump the water out of a flooded sand
trap or irrigate your crops quickly.
Here are 3 reasons why you need a PTO water pump:
Due to their large size and performance capabilities, you may assume using a PTO pump would be impossible to set up yourself, but you'd be surprised how easy it is. You won't have to waste anyone's time helping you set it up.
Just back the tractor up to the pump, hook up the pump and get to work. The beauty of these PTO pumps is they don't require tools for setting up and tear down.
Using the power of a tractor, PTO water pumps have a whole lot of power. Because of the situations they're used in, PTO pumps need to be extremely efficient to get the job done quickly.
The most powerful PTO pump can pump more than 30,000 gallons per hour (GPH). This is the most important factor in determining which water pump will best suit you. Pumps with a higher GPH don't work any differently than less powerful pumps, they just pump more water faster.
If you've ever tried fixing a broken water pump, you know that it can be more trouble than it's worth. That's why maintaining your equipment is so important. PTO pumps put fear of failure to rest because they're virtually maintenance-free.
The reason PTO pumps are so indestructible is that there isn't an engine to maintain along with gas and spark plugs that could fowl. The solid construction of the pump, which includes a powder-coated steel frame, allows for years of dependable use.
