Honda consolidates pump lineup

Honda Power Equipment’s WB Series water pumps will replace the outgoing WN, WP and WD general-purpose pumps. Honda GX160 (5.5 horsepower) and GX120 (4.5 horsepower) overhead-valve engines power the WB30 and WB20 pumps, respectively. The new pumps have heavy-duty, full-frame protection, a rigid-mounted cast iron pump volute and an abrasion-resistant, silicone-carbide mechanical seal. The WB30 has a maximum discharge capacity of 275 gallons per minute and a maximum head of 83 feet, while the WB20 is able to discharge up to 153 gpm with a maximum head of 94 feet.
