The Pump-Runner™ is a mobile, high-volume platform contains everything needed to set up a 300 GMP drafting or dewatering operation. One person can easily deliver, set-up, and leave the system primed and running.

The Pump-Runner™ easily mounts on the back of any vehicle with a 2" trailer hitch, where it rides wheels up, like a cargo carrier.

Once the Pump-Runner™ has been delivered to a water source, set-up takes about 10 minutes and requires no specialty tooling. Sections of hard suction hose and a strainer are connected to the pump with quick connect cam locks and put into the water.

200' of 3" discharge hose with a ball valve and fire department hose fitting is then rolled out to the street. A special bypass valve on the pump allows it to run continuously without overheating.

The Pump-Runner™ can be positioned next to a backyard swimming pool (pond, creek, or canal) with discharge lines out to the street to quickly fill passing Engines or Water Tenders/Tankers.

  • A quick and portable water source in wildland urban interface communities or neighborhoods.
  • A great investment for Fire Departments or Home Owner's Associations.
  • The Pump-Runner™ can be delivered, set up and left running at a water source, freeing valuable apparatus to fight fire rather than dedicated to pumping operations.
  • Please note: pump is removable. Do not run Pump-runner in-doors.


 pump-runner-iconflood  Dewatering Flooded Areas

Because the Pump-Runner™ is narrow enough to go through doorways, it can be rolled indoors for pumping out flooded basements and underground utility vaults.

  • A highly efficient and easily deployable pumping system for use in homes, businesses, hospitals, and campuses
  • Perfect for utility companies to dewater low lying areas and underground vaults prior to restoring community services.
  • No specialty tooling, the entire system uses quick connect camlocks for fast set up and break down. 
  • Please note: pump is removable. Do not run Pump-runner in-doors.

Because of the unique crank operated, scissor lift design, one person can easily mount the PodRunner® on a vehicle without any lifting.
