    A search did'nt yield the results I was looking for...

    I currently run an e-47 pump. I am looking to replace it becuase it is just too slow. What pump is the best as far as speed and reliability? I read the e-57's were decent. Is there any downside to these?

    The blade is a C-8

    Thanks in advance

    An E57 is just a 47 with a bigger pump & motor to make it faster. The E60 should be just as fast as the E57 I believe plus it has adjustable drop rate. The new E58 adds on the adjustable drop rate and the new style valves to the E57. Or you could add the bigger pump/motor from a 57 to your 47. All of them are faster than the E47.

    I had an E-47 and replaced it with a E-60 it is faster and so far no problems the E-47 was always giving trouble even tho both are rebuilds with a year warranty

    I agree with the E60. I had a e47 that i upgraded the motor and pump assembly to convert to the e57. It didnt go as fast as the 60 in my opinion
