“No Spill” Battery-Operated Oil Pump
Whether it’s from 5 gal., 16 gal. or 55 gal. containers, transferring high-viscosity oil can be messy, and hand pumping is a lot of work. The Australian-made Macnaught Battery-Operated Oil Pump (BOP) eliminates spills and labor.
“The pump is very unique because it’s battery operated, so you don’t need electricity or air,” says Mike Puckett, Marketing Director for Macnaught USA based in Florida. “You can use it if you have a tractor in the field. Mechanics have them for 55-gal. drums on wheels.”
Besides being mobile, the pump has a 1 1/2-gal./min. flow rate and works with heavy 140W oils in cool weather. The Li-Ion battery is good for up to 40 gals., and recharges in 45 mins.
“The other thing is it pumps multiple types of fluid, including automatic transmission fluid and coolants. Just change out the stem and put the powerhead on it,” Puckett says, to make equipment maintenance easier.
Customers also include truckers and people with boats. Made in Australia and used in mines and other rugged conditions, the BOPs are built tough and come with a 2-year warranty and great customer service, Puckett adds. They sell for $465 (5 gal.) to $496 (16 or 55 gal.) with kits for coolant and other options available.
