Water Pumps and Pipes

Three Berkley irrigation pumps and 3 miles of 6” irrigation pipe have  traditionally been used to refill dugouts in dry years as well as other  water pumping jobs.

  • Berkley pumps are driven by a 540 PTO drive.
  • The pumps can discharge 1000gpm with an elevation lift of 10 ft. Longer pumping distances and/or increases in elevation will reduce the amount of discharge.
  • Pipe is mounted on a trailer and comes in 30” lengths. ⇒ Pipe trailers should be towed at a maximum 40 km/hr.
