    Hey guys,

    run a small janitor service company, most jobs include everything from heat, to grass, cleaning and also snow and ice removal.

    for my snow and ice i have 3 small tractors with rotary brooms and went from bag salt to salene spraying last year on one of them.
    i liked my results so i would like to do make a brine maker(highly inspired by kubota's small design, prob more stealing than designing).

    i live in denmark europe and can find a pacer or banjo pump at a decent price.
    price plus shipping and vat.

    uk seller pacer 200p hydraulic 875$
    danish seller 1300$
    can find same unit in the states at 520$

    i don't want to pay that much when its not product cost, but customs and shipping cost :(

    do you guys know of any european companies that makes similar pumps?

    best regards

    panduro

    Lot of different type pumps you can use as an alternative, like a large sump pump, hydraulic driven, or most centrifugal pumps? I use the Pacer or Banjo because cost to volume is really cheap here. I pay about $300 USD for a 2" pacer w/briggs and stratton gas engine.

    As far as a cheap source over your side of the globe.....nope.

    Borrow from the design all you want, just remember making changes to it MIGHT effect the performance.
