WVO transfer pump

I'm in the market for a new transfer pump and was considering the WCB30 mini-gear oil pump from Duda diesel. Has anyone had any experience with this company or more specifically this line of pumps? It seems to have good specs and a good warranty for a reasonable price. I'm not collecting pho in alaska. WCB30 Mini-Gear Oil Pump [WCB30] | DudaDiesel Biodiesel Supplies

thanks,
Tom

My recommendations would be the 25cc gas powered general purpose pump from Honda (1" hoses), the Gulper 320 from Whale (12v pump), or a pump from Redline.

I have a Gulper & it works great. It's not real fast so if your are collecting ALOT of oil it may not be for you. You could make yourself a SBC pump. They work real good & if you have a motor kicking around then you could do it real cheap.

I've used the redline pump heavily for the last 3 years. It's durability is impressive and it moves cold oil well. I often carry it in the truck and pump on the go, so it's size is good for me. If I wasn't pumping as often or didn't have to move the pump as much, then I would totally go for the gas powered honda. Buy the biggest and burliest pump you can possibly afford.

The guy I've been buying my oil from has a 2" trash pump. That thing will fill a 275 gallon tote in less than 5 minutes. It's big and it's expensive, but it's the only way to go if you're dealing in bulk.

Thanks for all the replies guys.

Snake & Simone: I had looked at the gulper 320 and wondered if the motor was strong enough. I assume you've used it for a while and not had a burnt out motor..?

CharlieC: When using a redline when collecting, do you have the 110V model and use an invertor or do you have the 12V model?

I have the 12v pump, which I run either off the truck or a 12v deep cycle battery. It runs faster off the truck (14v instead of 12v) and I use an idle controller to keep the alternator at full output, but its kind of obnoxious to have the truck roaring, so I usually run it off the battery even though it's a bit slower.

The continuous duty motor on the redline is nice. I can move an entire tote of oil without having to give it a break, and their claims about being able to move cold oil with it are spot on.

Well I went to collect oil this morning & wouldn't yah know the Gulper wouldn't work. I had the fuse blow before so I was hoping it was that but fuse was good. Haven't had a chance to look at it yet but it worked perfectly when I used it last time & now nothing. Had to use my manual barrel pump. Boy was that fun. Pumped 150 gallons by hand.

What ever pump you get I would suggest getting a cheap manual barrel pump as a back up for those times when you other pump doesn't work.

Doh! I was just about to say I haven't moved much oil with the Gulper yet, but Simone and I know someone (Jason) who's moved thousands and thousands of gallons with that pump.

He's the reason why I bought the Gulper. I have pumped a lot of oil with it as well. Hopefully it's nothing serious. I may try to get my SBC pump going again.
