Diesel AmericaHistorically, the portable pump industry has always been a gasoline market. Diesel was not used for three reasons. (1) Diesel Engines are hard to start; (2) Diesel Pumps are too heavy and finally, (3) Diesel pumps are too expensive. Diesel America and Yanmar teamed up back in the mid 1980s and have answered those three questions, eliminating the objections to diesel-powered pumps.

Diesel America pumps have now become the standard pump in the Inland Waterways as it has allowed vessel operators to get explosive gasoline off their boats. Yanmar air-cooled diesel engines are the most compact and lightest in the industry and the engine of choice for these applications.

The recoil start makes the engine easy to start, even in cold weather. Diesel America offers the pumps with stainless steel roll cages or aluminum roll cages for light weight and corrosion resistant benefits.

We offer a wide range of diesel powered pumps, including centrifugal pumps, trash pumps, diaphragm pumps, chemical pumps and pressure pumps for wash down and fire fighting applications. Our portable pumps are now powered by either Yanmar or Hatz engines. Our mobile pumps are powered by FPT engines.

When you need a portable diesel pump, Diesel America is likely to have the product for your application. Click here to download the Diesel America Pumps Brochure.
