Scintex has coupled a Honda engine, a brand synonymous with reliability, to a range of heavy duty cast alloy pumps to give a great pump/engine combination. These units are ideal for many water transfer applications including moving water for livestock, emptying pools, flooded basements and even handy on construction sites.
This range of pumps are considered a water transfer style of pump. This means they are great for high volumes of water movement however they will not produce the high discharge pressures of some other models. Water transfer pumps have very good suction lift capabilities meaning they can lift water from in ground dams or pits with ease. All of these pumps are capable of lifting water a maximum of 7m elevation on the suction side of the pump.
This style of pump requires initial priming with water but once there's water in the casing, they will typically re-prime with ease. To prime the pump, simply pour water into the top of the pump casing via the priming port, re-seal the pump casing and start the engine.
The Honda GX series of 4-stroke commercial engines are world renown for being workhorse engines with extreme reliability. Honda engines are always easy to start and are very well supported with Honda dealers and spare parts kept in every corner of the continent. For a ultimate in reliability stick with the Honda GX series of engines.
