We want to dredge and highbank at the same time
"More material, more gold"

Feel free to give other models / pumps.

2" Honda. gx160 10,010 gph / 42 psi semi-trash pump
2" Honda gx160 8,120 gph / 94 psi clear water pump (foot valve will be protected from debris)

And is there any other setups ya'll might think of.

Thanks,

Mike

Here is the pump we use.
If you're JUST highbanking, don't buy it, get a cheap semi-trash pump.

You run about idle for a 2".
However, it's hard to tone it down if you want to run just a highbanker pump.
Also, you need to keep ALL debris over 1/8" out of it. So, be careful.
It's not hard to take apart and clean if it does happen, just a pain.

Also, they are cheap enough to buy 2 if you are going on a remote trip.

My thoughts exactly.

That was the pump I was leaning towards. :D

Thank you for your TIME (the one thing we can never get back).

This is the one I use ( http://www.tractorsupply.com/red-lion-5 ... mp-1023077 ) . As Doc said, if you plan on using it for just highbanking, running it at idle is still a lot of water (not so great for running the GH Mini Excavator but works ok on the Big Hog). Recently I posted a video of my neighbor and I running both the Big Hog and the Mini Hog off of just this pump. It's a beast, but very efficient on fuel (ran the whole day on about half a tank at 25% throttle). The only thing I don't care for about this pump is they did a crap job balancing the impeller. Because of that, I most likely will be sending it out for balancing this winter. Click on the photo below to view the video.

I just bought another pump. The 94 psi GX160. I've used a Keene pump for about eight years now dredging and really never cared for it much.
I'll let you know what I think of it.
More pressure and volume than my Keene pump, and it's cheaper. It's a little heavier, but I believe the performance will make up for extra weight.
