The Pump hire industry standard for contractors, water authorities, quarries and local agencies, to mention just a few of the industry sectors using the Sykes GP range on a daily basis. These pumps are easy to maintain and provide hours of unattended operation due to the use of tried and tested components, selected to ensure maximum reliability.

Manufactured in the UK, our General Purpose pumps comply with all of the most stringent quality standards both British and European, and their robust construction ensures they are suitable for even the most arduous of applications.

Used wherever there is a need for positive self-priming pump, our GP range incorporates the unique Sykes vacuum system, enabling the pump to prime and re-prime fully automatically from dry, and operate with the suction intake intermittently exposed to atmosphere.

From the 2” unit, which comes with handles for ease of onsite movement, up to the 8” pump the same high quality standards are applied. Each unit has an integral fuel tank which allows up to 24 hours of pumping before refuelling meaning that there is minimal disruption to the job in hand and labour is not interrupted by the need to fuel the pumps on a regular basis. Fuel consumption can be as little as half a litre every hour.

Whether the priority is flow or head there will be a pump in this range that can do the job for you. Flow rates of up to 161 l/s are achieved and the maximum head is 43m, combined with the ability to handle solids up to 75mm these pumps really are versatile.
