1" Air Diaphragm Pump
With a 30 gpm capacity catch containers are quickly emptied. A filter regulator and air valve is included. Just connect shop air and it’s ready to use.


High-Level Shut-Off Valve
This special valve prevents the operator from overfilling the tank and causing a spill. When the tank level gets to the maximum safe capacity the valve will automatically shut-off the air supply to the pump. Until the tank is emptied, the pump will not work.


10' Evacuation Hose
The 10' hose is equipped with a quick-connect coupler making emptying a used oil drain easy and clean. A hanger bracket on the tank keeps the hose out of the way until needed.


Camlock Coupler

An easy-to-read fluid level gauge shows the operator the remaining tank capacity and is a reminder to have the tank emptied.


Fluid Level Gauge
The 2” fill spout makes refilling the Fuel Cart easy. The vented cap keeps the tank closed and provides pressure relief when required.


Protective Cover
Both workbench and vertical style tanks are equipped with a protective cover that shields the diaphragm pump, auto shut-off valve and fittings.
