    Does anyone in Russia use a 8"-12" pumps on a rig or trailer? You may not have enough water to use a pump this size. The large pump would be very hard to move around as well.

    The cost of equipment in parts of Alaska are also about 3 times the cost in the lower 48 States of the United States.

    The idea with using a 6"-8" pump is that if you have enough water and settling ponds you may only need to run the pump at full speed for a day or two and let the water settle the rest of the week. You may have enough sand and gravel to run the back hoe the rest of the week while the water is settling out. You can see some of this in season two I think of "Gold Rush". Still think you should buy any 5"-6" water pump you can find new or used that has a keyed shaft. Then buy a coupler that fits both the pump and the engine you will be using. Keep us updated with pictures. Thanks.

    Yes now you are getting the idea here with your pictures.
    If you can buy a 8"- 10" pump on a trailer that has a 8 cylinder engine. This size will be hard to out grow and may not cost much more used. Plus you can run this size pump at around 1/2 full speed to help on costs and wear. Making a big enough nozzle may not be to hard if you or your friends know how to work metal and weld.

    A Keene water pump will be about the same as the pumps you have pictures of. Buy a used pump and take apart to help make sand molds out of for cast metal. A Brass pump will out last a aluminum pump.

    The winter weather is going to start soon here as well. Go on the internet to learn and share. This one has to make equipment like you do as well like TIG welding.
    The name Assembler means a number of things around the base meaning to assemble. Means to Assemble people as well.

    With brass metal one can make a closer fitting impeller pump for less loss of pressure and water. More efficient water pump. Most Keene impellers are cast out of aluminum metal and not brass. However some of the larger pumps are cast out of brass.
