Higdon Warthog Self Priming Floating Pump

The Warthog is the world's best floating pump! The Warthog Pump is a light and portable unit, but moves 850 gallons of water per minute. The patented removable 5 gallon external fuel ring provides an industry leading run time of over 15 hours. This self-priming pump skims and settles to the lowest point as water recedes, relieving the need to reposition the unit while operating. The Warthog is constructed out of a tough high impact material and utilizes metal on metal pump components. Paired with a reliable 5hp Kohler motor, the Warthog is rugged, reliable, and ready! An economical and speedy alternative to other pumping methods, the Warthog is great for commercial or personal use around your home, farm, or business. Each Warthog includes 100' of high pressure hose, clamps, and quick connect coupler. UPS next day and UPS 2 day not available. Gear Case- The gear case in your warthog pump requires 1 litre (35 ounces) of full synthetic 30 weight oil (recommended) or 30 weight mineral oil.

Highly recommend

by Steve

Very impressed with the ease of use of this pump. We added a 12 gallon external fuel tank with 20' of gas line and set the tank on the bank. It will run 48 to 60 hours depending on throttle position. I am 53 yo and can handle this pump and hoses without any help. Would recommend this to anyone that needs a pump.

Warthog pump moves some water

by Craig

To customers pondering the purchase of this product: if you need to move a lot of water this will get it done! Pump/Kohler engine appear stout, but run fairly loud on full throttle.
The current lay flat hose provided is made in China and was incredibly tight upon installation to the quick attach connector. The instructions depict an easy slide on and clamp installation. Not the case in my experience as the hose had no extra material to do what the photos in the instructions depicted. It was a pain in the posterior to initially attach this hose! Once attached it has been fine, however after 3 uses there is some visible wear to the hose. More use is needed to see what the durability is on this hose.
I haul the pump and hose with my Honda ATV and deploy it by myself. I’m pleased with the performance so far.
