The Trailer Riptide vertical pit pump has a single PTO shaft, which boosts visibility and efficiency when placing the pump into a pit. This, along with its folding functionality, allows you to get closer to the manure pit and creates more space for additional equipment, like semis and tanks, to pass through.  




It all starts with agitation. Get a quick and easy start on your job with the Trailer Riptide.

Trailer Riptide - Tractor Cab View
Trailer Riptide has a single PTO shaft, which provides several benefits in itself.

- First and foremost, it boosts visibility and efficiency when placing the pump into the pit.

-It reduces the risk of downtime with fewer moving joints and no carrier bearing to maintain.

- The trailer tongue is off-set, giving the operator more room to work and easier access to the PTO shaft, resulting in increased uptime.

BONUS: There is a convenient and secure PTO shaft mount built-in that eliminates the need to transport additional PTO shafts.
Riptide | Bazooka Farmstar Submersible Pump
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 submersible pump has dual outlet ports, no mechanical seal for reduced maintenance, and rings in at 33.75". The quadruple-sealed bearing housing with a grease chamber keeps manure out of the oil bath section of the bearing housing. #lowmaintenancealert
Riptide has a narrow profile again, allowing easy access to the manure source. 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, making the submersible pump itself the widest dimension of this agitation pump. (33.75")
Trailer Riptide Hydraulics
Trailer Riptide has the capability of hydraulically driven functionality. From folding from transport to working mode to agitation nozzle rotation, we've got you covered from a convenience standpoint.
Trailer Riptide - Transport
The width of the base of this vertical pit pump is approximately 8,' giving it stability as it is towed behind a pick-up truck to the next job site at highway speeds.

The width between the tires is 6.5,' allowing you to back right over most manure pit openings to easily place the pump.
Trailer Riptide
This vertical pit pump has two 6" vertical pipes that merge into a single 8" discharge pipe. The Trailer Riptide comes standard with one agitation nozzle with the option to add a second. The agitation nozzles reduce from 6" to a 3.5" diameter outlet. The (optional) upper and lower nozzles can rotate in opposing directions to increase agitation effectiveness and keep solids in suspension throughout the agitation process.

BONUS: We've standardized indicators that show nozzle direction and knife gate valve positions, so you always know where everything is when placing the pump and agitating the pit.
Trailer Riptide Selector Valves
Trailer Riptide has minimal hydraulic hook-ups to the tractor for your convenience. This is accomplished through dual, manual selector valves that allow operators to switch between travel/fold hydraulics and pumping/agitate hydraulics with two simple push/pull knobs.

Never have more than three sets of hoses going to the tractor.
Riptide Gear Box
The Riptide's lubrication pump is driven directly off the 1000 RPM, PTO gearbox output shaft. The gearbox and bearing housing use tractor hydraulic oil. #efficiency

All Trailer Riptide vertical pit pumps are built to make the job light yet heavy-duty.
