Subaru’s high-pressure pump combines a powerful overhead-cam engine with high-pressure capabilities and heavy-duty construction to deliver the performance needed for a variety of applications. Powered by a 6.0-hp Subaru EX17 engine, the two-inch PKX201H offers a lift height of up to 275 feet and a maximum delivery volume of 127 gallons per minute. A hardened cast-iron volute effectively withstands suspended particles and small solids sucked through the strainer, while an abrasion-resistant, cast-iron three-blade impeller and a replaceable wear plate ensure long life and low maintenance. The automatic decompression, easy-pull recoil starter and Hot Spark ignition system provide easy and reliable starting. The large-capacity fuel tank extends operation time, while its special coating helps prevent rust from forming inside the tank. 847.540.7300, subarupower.com
