The patent is still pending on a new design by Nuhn Header Series Pumps that combines faster pumping rates and greater energy efficiency.
Three exit pipes in the housing unit, along with a large fan, increases the speed the liquid exits the pit while reducing the power and fuel requirements. The pump can transfer 7,000 gallons per minute with the tractor at 150 hp according to company representatives.
The tractor can be slowed to between idle and 650 rpm and still pump up to 4,000 gallons per minute. For more information call Nuhn Industries, LTD at (877)-837-7323, or visit www.nuhn.ca
