Patz Introduces New LTX Hydraulic Pump
Patz Corporation announced the new Tundra® LTX Hydraulic Pump. This new pump is designed to pump slurry manure with a liquid content of 95 percent or more up to distances of 2000 feet. Slurry can include a small amount of bedding made from sand, sawdust, or wood shavings. The LTX pump is powered by either a 5 or 7.5 HP Hydraulic Power Pack System. The Tundra® LTX is able to sit above or below ground, which allows for more mounting options. An 8” suction pipe is used to draw manure into the pump. The maximum draw up from the reception pit is 10’. Manure is discharged through a 6” or 8” plastic pipe to final storage.
