WVO Collection Pumps??

Has anyone had experience with using trash pumps for wvo collection? I am figuring on transferring wvo at the restaurant (55 gal drums) into a collection tank in a trailer. I am looking for either a 12v transfer pump that can handle 40+ gal at a clip or a trash pump. Anyone that can share their experience and links to where to find the right pumps for the job at reasonable cost, please pm me or reply.
thanks.

I use a gas powered 2" trash water pump. I have a trailer with a 200 gallon tank on it and the trash water pump plumbed in. Pump is bolted down at the rear of the trailer. I have a 20 ft suction hose with cam lock quick connects. I collect mine from a 275 gallon tote with a cam lock at the bottom. Makes really quick work out of it.

That's a neat little pump and would work great. At under 200 bucks it's a steal. It would be ideal for 55 gallon drums. My 2" pump is overkill for a 55 gallon drum. It is rated at something like 157 gallons/minute and sucks a 55 gallon drum dry in less time than it takes to set up. I paid like $220 for my 2" on eBay and since I am pumping around 200 gallons at a time figured why not.
