Fill-Rite Fuel Transfer Pump - 115 Volt AC, 13 GPM, Model# SD602G
I purchased this product new. It lasted 2 years. Just stopped pumping. Checked the switch, good. Pulled cover off - lots of white corrosion. Brushes looked good. I own other fill rite pumps with no problems.

Not a good pump
Used it a couple years and it just quit. I figure it pumped at the most 4,000 gallons, which isn't much.

did not last very long
I bought this pump approx. 3 years ago and it pumped ok for about 1 year then quit, the motor would not run. It pumped less than 200 gallons. No way to open motor up to repair. I would not recommend this pump to any one.

Not a bad pump
Pump was in good shape after shipping. Installation was easy, had the pump up and running in no time.

Had Pump for approximately 1 1/2 years and only used it two or three times a week to fill up our one loader. One day it worked, the next day it would do nothing, not even hum. Checked power o.k. then removed access cover to check power to the switch and found entire switch & motor area full of moisture and components all badly corroded and wire connections corroded and falling off. Worked good when it worked but am greatly disappointed with short life span. Upon removing access plate I found the o-ring seal very flat which must of allowed water in. This plate was never removed by me prior to removing it to check this problem

Should have done this a LONG time ago ! It took quite a bit of effort / preperation to gather everything required.....tank, tank legs, pipe fittings,Nipples, elbows, Couplings, Caps, Electrical Cable, Boxes, Switches, Ect..
Selecting a spot to put everything and installation all took time, but once everything was in place and the tank was filled with fuel.......it has been GREAT ! No problems. Very easy to use. No more running to the service station to fill 5 gallon cans. No more watching the daily swings of fuel prices either ! I highly recommend this product for its convenance, ease of use and reliability. May add a meter someday.

This works much better than pumping by hand. The tracter tanks now get filled instead of stopping when your arm gets tired. It works good, I wonder if maybe II should have gotten a heavyer one, but time will tell.

tuthill fuel transfer pump and gallon mater
I received the pump from your company in very good condition. Pump was simple to install and use. I also got a gallon meter for the fuel transfer pump that arived in excellance condition. That was easy to install also. Both the fuel transfer pump and the gallon meter are easy to operate. the fuel transfer pump is a nice compact unit and the gallon meter has bug, clear numbers and is easy to reset. On the other hand the fuel nosel for the transfer pump will leak fuel out as soon as you turn on the pump. You need to put the nosel in the fuel tank of what you are filling before turning the fuel transfer pump on. I like the two products I received from your company. I will be ordering a different fuel nosel for my transfer pump. One that has the automatic shut off.

This 120 volt tank gas pump is being used in a 500 galon storage tank located on my farm. I had been using a 12 volt pump in the past and dicided to change to a 120 volt system. It works real well.

"I should not have waited so long"
Over a year ago I bought a diesel tractor to move and spread 8000 to 9000 yards of fill to cover an area of my property that couldn't be used for much of anything,except to grow bushes and alders. I was 3 months and exactly 300 hours getting this giant pile of earth spread out. I also had to put a cellar drain through the middle of it all. To make matters worse it rained nearly every day,and what started out being a trench for a new cellar drain looked like the Grand Canyon because each morning I would have to re-dig what had collapsed the night before. During that whole ordeal I would have to take the time to put 1 - 10 gallon metal fuel tank and 6 - 5 gallon fuel cans in the pick-up and drive 15 miles to fill them with off road diesel fuel because that was the nearest place that sold the cheaper off road stuff. I kept looking at this pump in the Northern Tool Catalog but hesitated to spend the money. To make a long story shorter, after the cellar drain was laid,the fill spread out and seeded & mulched I decided to make my life a little easier and bought this pump. I already had a 275 gallon fuel tank in the garage for the furnace,which was 1/4 full of kerosene because the garage isn't heated all the time only when I am out there working in the winter. After the pump was installed with the nozzle and hose through the wall with a shut off switch in the attached tractor shed I am able to fill the 10 gallon tractor tank (even when almost empty) in less than a minute. When I think of all the lost seat time I could have added to any given day out on that big dirt pile instead of on the road struggling with fuel cans, I realize "I should not have waited so long.I had the fuel tank filled with #2 fuel oil to give me a blended mix that would work in the furnace as well as the tractor even on a cold winter day.
