Tuthill Introduces the Industry’s First DC Powered, UL Listed, Portable Fuel Transfer Pump for Gasoline or Diesel.
Tuthill, the world leader in fuel transfer pumps, meters, and accessories, is excited to announce an industry first: a truly portable, handheld, UL listed explosion-proof DC fuel transfer pump for use with gasoline and other flammable liquids.
Designed for versatility and safety, the Fill-Rite® RD8 features a UL listed explosion-proof motor, configurable inlet and outlet flanges, quick connect power cord, and an innovative hinged vane design that eliminates the need for a bypass. It can be foot mounted, handheld, or bung mounted on a drum or portable tank, and it is compatible with most fuels, including gasoline, diesel and biodiesel. It is also water tolerant, so it can be used to drain tanks that contain a mixture of water and fuel.
The RD8 is designed for both work and play applications. Power sports enthusiasts will enjoy the convenience of using a nozzle to fill their ATV’s, personal watercraft, boats, and snowmobiles. No more lifting heavy fuel cans or spilling gasoline in the water, on the ground or on your vehicles when refueling.
The configurable flanges make the RD8 an ideal pump to fit into tight spaces often found in RV applications. It takes just minutes to remove two bolts and rotate the flange to get it in the correct position for your space.
The RD8 pumps fluids at flow rates up to 8 GPM. It is made of cast aluminum and weighs just 7.5 pounds. The manual nozzle allows you to vary the flow to match the size of the tank and avoid spilling. It has a 30 minute duty cycle so filling multiple vehicles consecutively is quick and convenient. For a list of where to buy an RD8 please visit www.fillrite.com/RD.
