Has anyone tried these small battery operated fuel pumps. They fit into the 5 gal plastic gas cans with about 3 feet of discharge hose. I have so much trouble lifting the fuel cans up to my MF 5o and Ford 4400 FEL as well as all the small garden tractors such as the Cub Cadets 129 etc. How have they held up? Saw one at Ace or Best Hardware for around 52 dollars. One brand on e-bay is the Terapump TRFA01. for around 50 to 60 dollars.

I got one and do like it, only thing I'd change is make the hose a bit longer but other than that they are good pumps, mines just over a year old now

I can order them if you want but pricing would be close to what you seen in the 50-60 range

How about a picture?  With all the new regulations on spouts and sizes and such, this fit any tank or have adapters or what?  What size battery's they use or are they charged.  Another lost charger? heh!  I'm finding same heavy issue with my 5 gallon anymore, at times I don't even fill it, just to be able to handle it.

Good topic I've been thinking about one myself. Im to the point where I'm using two gallon cans. Putting the five gallon can & pump on a little drag around dolly was my plan.

Amazon has them for under $20. Works on 2D batteries. Not talking about the fancy ones, the one I have goes down into the 5 gallon and the hose is attached to the body of it. Search Terrapump. They last about 2-3 years before they crap out. Beats holding and pouring, and pumps pretty quick.
