Lake Zurich, IL, United States, 2010/04/30 - Suitable for handling water with small solids and light debris, Subaru semi-trash pumps offer a heavy-duty overhead cam gasoline engine, a large volute discharge opening and dependable performance.
Subaru’s line of semi-trash pumps consists of two models: the PKX201ST and the PKX301ST. The 2-inch PKX201ST is powered by the Subaru EX13, a 4.5-horsepower engine, and provides a delivery volume of 153 gallons per minute. The 3-inch PKX301ST offers a delivery volume of 246 gallons per minute and is driven by the EX17, a 6.0-horsepower engine. The pump and engine built as an integrated unit provides maximum performance and dependability.
The semi-trash pumps are constructed with heavy-duty materials to offer durability for the most demanding job sites. A hardened cast-iron volute effectively withstands suspended particles and small solids sucked through the strainer, while an abrasion-resistant, cast-iron three-blade impeller and a replaceable wear plate ensure long life and low maintenance. After adding water to the pump casing, the semi-trash pumps are self-priming, and the advanced volute design drives water straight into the cavity for fast priming. The silicon-carbide seal increases the durability of the self-lubricating mechanical seal and provides many hours of trouble-free service.
A rugged, long-lasting strainer is standard and protects pump components from large solids, while the hole diameter helps prevent large debris from entering the suction hose. A strong aluminum die-cast housing withstands the debris allowed. For durability and protection, a heavy-duty steel roll cage wraps around the entire pump. Other standard features include a toolkit, hose band and three-year warranty.
The semi-trash pumps offer a low-tone muffler and a sound-suppressing air cleaner for quiet operation and meet EPA/CARB emission standards through 2007. The pumps also feature a U.S. Forest Service-approved spark arrestor.
The automatic decompression, easy-pull recoil starter and Hot Spark® ignition system provide easy and reliable starting. The large-capacity fuel tank extends operation time, while its special coating helps prevent rust from forming inside the tank. A large fuel opening allows easy pouring and the cleanable mesh intake strainer helps prevent debris from reaching the engine. Four extra-large anti-vibration mounts ensure a smooth-running engine and keep the unit from shifting during operation.
Routine maintenance can be completed in the field with common hand tools. Four stainless steel cap screws hold together the aluminum casings, and all wear parts are exposed when the cover is removed, making maintenance convenient. The large plastic plugs make draining and filling easier and eliminate corrosion between the plugs and casing. Additionally, suction and discharge nipples have standard NPT fittings for quick, easy hose connections.
