Im sure you could get them from a fuel supplier, but these guys have a lot of products

Oooof. I guess its actually a 1-1/2. But that’s the exact one listed on the Dultmeier site. Just got it from
Our fuel supplier as they keep spares around.

You can get 1-1/4 or 1-1/2, the hose is all 1-1/2 I believe and depends on if you get 1-1/4 or 1-1/2 ends crimped on. You can get swivels that convert between to two sizes.

Yeah ours is the 1-1/2. I think I called it 1-1/4 is the nozzle necks down.

It’ll practically blow its self out of the fill hole if you rev the pump right up!

The 1 1/2 seem to be more common. 1 1/4 almost seems none existent

I’ll have to look at what’s on the end of the meridian reel. It must be 1-1/4. It’s bigger than the slip tank pumps but it sure isn’t the 1-1/2 that we rigged on the other trailer.

I just wish ground filling was doable, using 1 liter of oil in 400 hours and never having to clean anything means I see no need to drag this overweight 65 year old body up any unnecessary steps pulling a klutzy, heavy fuel nozzle and hose.

Don, google cat fast fuel fill. It’s a ground level filling system.

We have a rope mounted on both combines that we use to pull the fuel hose up. Much safer

I’m using 2 1000 L totes on the back of a car hauler trailer with a 2” Honda pump and 1-1/2 hose.
The whole setup including trailer was 3500. The car hauler tandem trailer was $2700. I use cam locks to connect the totes to the pump so it can be taken off the trailer in less than 5 minutes. Not the best HD setup but for the price it’s working great for us. 1000 liter totes carry all kinds of chemicals and work fine for transport of diesel. Plus I use the trailer for other stuff between seeding and harvest.
