2-Wheeled Dolly With Battery-Operated Diesel Transfer Pump
Mack Myers, Kirbyville, Texas: ďAs I get older I canít lift as much as I used to, so I try to come up with ways to make life easier. I recently equipped a 2-wheeled dolly with a battery-operated diesel transfer pump. It really comes in handy for refueling tractors and other diesel-powered vehicles.
  ďA 12-volt battery sets on a wooden shelf at the middle of the dolly, with the transfer pump and its discharge hose mounted above it. Thereís a 5-gal. container at the bottom. When refueling, I stick a 20-in. length of pvc pipe into the container to serve as a suction hose. ďThis setup eliminates the need to haul heavy containers around by hand and do any lifting, and thereís no need for an electric outlet to operate the transfer pump. I bought the pump and hoses at Harbor Freight for $104 (with a 20 percent off coupon) and already had the dolly and battery.Ē
