  • PTO Pump
  • Here is a picture of the pump I have for my 8N to provide water if I need it when I burn brush. Can someone post a picture of how to correctly set it up with a discharge hose and spray nozzle. I will use a 35 gal plastic barrel for the water supply. Any help appreciated. The inlet and discharge are both 1".

  • I am not fond of the chain torque arm setup for these pumps. Here is what I did for the one on my sprayer. Very easy to hookup and holds the pump rock solid.

  • You need an inexpensive pressure regulator like this one. You can get them at just about any farm supply for around $20.

    1. Run your suction line from the bottom of the tank to the suction port on the pump.
    2. Install one end of a tee in the discharge port on the pump and screw the male end of the regulator into the other end of the tee.
    3. Connect your spray hose to the middle leg of the tee and run a return hose from the female port on the regulator back to the tank fill point.
    Done. When you start the PTO the pressure regulator will control the pressure at the spray hose by bypassing water as needed back to the tank via the return hose. Screw the adjusting handle on teh regulator in to incresae spray hose pressure and out to reduce it. If you want to get fancy install a pressure gauge in the spray line so you can see exactly what the pressure is set to.

  • You guys are right on. I am going to do it right and install a regulator. Thanks.

  • Trying to use the pump without a regulator would be a real PITA. You could never shut the spray hose off when the pump was running and as soon as you started the pump the spray hose would start spewing and empty that tank in a hurry. This way you can use an ordinary garden hose and nozzle and let the pump run all you want - water on demand.

    PS> You will also have a mobile gun sprayer for Roundup and friends.

  • Re: PTO Pump
  • That looks like the identical roller pump that I have on my three point mounted sprayer.

    If so, you will need a pressure regulator and provision to return water to the tank when the discharge nozzle is closed. Otherwise you will dead head the pump.

    If you never close the discharge while the PTO is on, simply connect the inlet to the bottom of the tank and the outlet to the discharge hose.

  • Re: PTO Pump
  • Could one of you guys show a picture of the entire rig hooked up with explanation? I am terrible at trying to envision with being able to see all that you are saying. Thanks

  • Re: PTO Pump
  • Per TOH's instructions this is how I set mine up. Hose on the left is suction, the middle one is discharge and the one on the right is return line to tank.

  • Re: PTO Pump
  • I see you even found the tee with port for a gauge.

  • Re: PTO Pump
  • Yes it was the only one they had so decided to go with the gauge. I still need to teflon tape all the fittings and secure the hose clamps. Thanks Again for all your help.

  • Re: PTO Pump
  • You will be surprised by how handy that gauge is.

  • Re: PTO Pump
  • If I do not use a regulator can I reduce the discharge down some to get more pressure when the pump is running or would that restrict it too much?
