    Have 2. Will run for 24+ hours idled slightly down with the 6 gallon donut tank. First one I purchased before Higdon picked up distribution, probably 6 years ago...made in Regina, Canada.

    Where is the best place to buy the 6"hose that those pumps use? It comes with thick plastic hose, like garbage bag material.
    I haven't found anywhere that sells thin hose like that.

    Bought one this spring. Having trouble getting the external tank to run properly. Any photos or suggestions for the fuel line/pump hook up? I am considering just running a external marine fuel tank and hooking it directly to fuel line engine.

    I installed a standard outdoor boat motor priming bulb in line between the ring gas tank and the fuel pump. Wasn't a real problem before except you avoid a lot of pulling to prime. Pump the bulb till tight and fires right up.

    I think that is called poly pipe and comes in a roll.
    Rice farmers use tons.
    I had help from some extremely generous arkansas farm hands. They flooded the field that my guys were trying to flood using a trash pump.?
    15 acres in Egypt. Those farmers showed up with everything. Woke me up and said cmon we got a surprise for you. Thank God.
