 Diesel pump

Much thanks to all who participate in the discussions on this board. Thanks to you I have been able to answer a lot of my questions and I finally bought a JD 4600. It was delivered last week and I love it so far. I have the FEL and 48 backhoe and I'm quite happy with it's performance thus far. However, I'm almost to the point of refueling it and I was wondering if anyone has seen or heard of an easier way to get 12 gallons of diesel into the little hole in the hood without physically pouring it out of a five gallon container. I've thought of possible syphoning it out of a container that is raised in the bucket, but there must be an easier way. Maybe some sort of small electric pump. Or even a 25 gallon or so tank with a hand pump. Any suggestions??Thanks

 Diesel pump

Northern Tool has a small inexpensive hand pump that replaces the cap on standard gas containers. I just set the container on the tractor seat, put the hose into the tank and pump away. It works, but I might replace it with a more expensive pump if I found one. It does take quite a few strokes to pump 5-gallons, but at least there's no balancing, spilling or overflowing. I too use red gas containers, but recognize the possibility of confusion and realize I should replace them with yellow diesel containers.

Dan, I buy my diesel in a 55 gallon barrel and use a lever action, $25 hand pump. You can get similar pumps at Tractor Supply Co., Northern Tool, Gebo's, or most any other farm supply store, and they're adjustable for smaller barrels, too.

 Diesel pump

I tried two or three hand pumps before I stumbled on the little handpump that TomG is talking about and it is the best thing I've found so far. I paid about $12 for it on sale as I recall. It works well, but doesn't seem to be very well constructed so I anticipate having to replace it before too long. I keep checking the nets to see if someone else has a better one to recommend. I don't use enough fuel to warrant having 55 gallons on hand and I sure don't want to lug around anything more than a 5 gallon container.

 Diesel pump

We drill out the vent hole on a standard 5 gal. container and thread in an air valve (like a tire fill valve) then just use a piece of tubing just small enough to slip down the neck of the spout and reach the bottom of the container, and place a pipe clamp or some silicone around the pipe/neck joint. Then you can either use a 'bike' pump or small air pig to pressurize the container. A few psi will drive the fuel up into the tank from ground level, if the tractor gets full before the container is done just release the air valve and the hose drains back into the container. If you want to get fancy you can put a valve on the hose. We also have barrel 'bung nuts' modified to do the same thing with 45 gal. drums, works great. Best of luck.

Tom, I use blue containers for diesel fuel, which may be intended for kerosene, but which I find readily in hardware stores. Murf, as usual, I love your idea and am now planning to modify a cap for my containers so I can swap it from one to the other.

 Diesel pump

Thanks guys. I don't think I'll have the need for fifty gallons, but I like the idea of a pump that fits a five gallon can. One pump and a couple of cans and I'll be in business.

 Diesel pump

Dan: While we're on the subject, the next hurdle is changing hydraulic oil. Trying to pour from a 10-gallon pain into a funnel on top of the transmission is a real pain. Trying to hit the fill hole on the front axle is even worse. For me, Northern Tool again had the answer called a pail pump. The pump is a lever type piston pump that mounts in a metal lid that is designed to replace the standard lid of an oil pail. It's not exactly cheap, but worth every cent.

I stuck a pump right in my heating oil tank. Its been like that for ove 10 years now. Before that messed around with cans. Come the BIG ICE STORM PTO generator will be fine. I get about 2 hours per gallon average use. Alittle less on mower at PTO. I like it!!!!
