Honda WX=10
« on: July 07, 2013, 05:02:09 AM »
Recall some past threads that a few of you have used the WX-10 successfully with a 1.5" suction nozzle.  I am considering so  but would like some sort of an idea how long the pressure and suction tubes can be.  I'll have no elevation problems, but naturally would like to gain a better working distance without having to move the set up.

Realize a larger pump would be better but weight and $$$$ are a serious determent for now.   :-\

  15 ft. is about the max you can run on pumps from 5hp. down, with a 1 1/2" you might have to go down to

  10ft. in order to have the best. You have to keep in mind the weight your trying to move , both with suction

   and pressure, plus material, small pumps can only do so much. It can help to work out a plan before hand

  as to where you are going to start and where you want to proceed. Can you set up in the center of your

  planed area and work in a circle or an arc that fill cover the area so you don't have to move anything except

 the hose?  this is something that applies to all sizes not just to the small ones.
