Home made manure pump"It'll load a 5,000 gal. manure tank in two minutes," says Ron Bernardin, Laurier, Man. of his home-built manure pump. To build it, he used 20 ft. of 6-in. dia. grain auger with the flighting removed and a down spout attached on the end. Tubing runs from the impellor to the back of the tractor where flexible line attaches to load the spreader.
The impellor (26-in. in dia.) is driven by a 1¢-in. dia., 20-ft. long shaft connected to the tractor's 540 rpm pto. The pump also has an agitator port mounted above it. Bernardin mounted the entire rig on a set of steel dump rake wheels.
