MK3-QS MARK-3® Backpack Portable High-Pressure Pump 4-STG


SKU: 0112 Categories: ,

Always the benchmark in terms of performance, reliability and durability, the MARK-3® benefited from a series of improvements to its key components namely a Nikasil-coated cylinder, an impregnated crankcase and a maintenance-free pump end.

The new Nikasil Coated Cylinder is the most significant upgrade on the MARK-3® in years. In addition, WATERAX has adjusted its recommended fuel mix ratio to 50:1 synthetic. Please note that the change to the synthetic 50:1 fuel mix ratio is also valid for older MARK-3® equipped with cast iron sleeve cylinders.

The improved MARK-3® successfully passed the USDA Forest Service 100 hours endurance test in San Dimas on 08/04/15 and has been requalified under QPL Number 274-001.

MARK-3® meets or exceeds USDA Forest Service SPECIFICATION 5100-274E.Exempt from emission standards under 40 CFR 1054.660NSN 4320-00-890-5879
