The 3 Pt. Riptide vertical pit pump is equipped with dual, independent nozzles and vertical plumbing pipes that produce top-of-the-line liquid manure agitation performance. This agitator is built heavy-duty and can efficiently move high volumes of fluid.
The 3 Pt. Riptide has a narrow profile, allowing easy access to the manure source, specifically tight pit openings. The dual agitation nozzles can fold into the center of the pump when they are not being used to maximize the compactness of the design.
This vertical pit pump is equipped with an 18-inch Bazooka Farmstar submersible pump and can move 4,000+ gallons per minute at a recommended 150-180 horsepower.
The BF pump has dual outlet ports, no mechanical seal for reduced maintenance, and rings-in at 33.75 inches wide, 27 inches deep. The quadruple-sealed bearing housing with a grease chamber keeps manure out of the oil bath section of the bearing housing. #lowmaintenancealert
Order your Riptide to fit your specific needs, with the option to have a short or long hitched vertical pit pump. The hitch itself has stowable support legs that easily fold up and out of the way for an added convenience.
The dual-category, 3-point hitch pins can be flipped, making this PTO-driven pump compatible with a broad range of tractors.
The dual, independent nozzles reduce from 6" down to a 3.5" diameter outlet. The upper and lower nozzles can rotate in opposing directions to increase agitation effectiveness and keep solids in suspension throughout the agitation process. The upper nozzle also has vertical adjustment capabilities for maximum agitation efficiency.
BONUS: We've included nozzle indicators that show nozzle direction and knife gate valve positions.
Riptide has dual, 6" vertical pipes that merge into a single, 8" discharge pipe.
You've got the option to add an 8" discharge and pipe elbow to the agitation-only base model to make force-feeding, pumping, and filling tanks possible with your vertical pit pump. Operators can pivot the discharge elbow off either side of the tractor for next-level flexibility.
